Pretty disappointed overall. Awkward writing - bad sentence structure - lots of author indulgences such as frequent rhetorical questions to the reader and postulating things as being "maybe so" in one chapter but in later chapters referring to them as fact. General confusion of fact, fantasy, theory, possibility and likelihood. Lots of cool content and details I mean to find out more about, so perhaps it could be said to have achieved its purpose, but generally a much goofier book than I origina ...more

I read this book as part of research for my archaeological novel "The Bones in the Pit", about the Oak Island Money Pit mystery in Nova Scotia. Of two dozen reference books (some purporting to be non-fiction, some blatantly fiction, some a mix) this was the standout. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's take on the Money Pit and why it might have been created. No spoilers here but the title gives some of it away - however you'll find a lot of intriguing stuff in this book if you like trying to figu ...more

I'm now 1/4 through this book and now possess a wealth of information about pre-Columbian Scots and Norse settlers/explorers in North America, and nothing yet about the Templars. That said, it's still a fascinating book, esp. insofar as the linguistic links that have been established b/t the Native Americans and these Scots & Norse peoples.

The note above still stands -- this was a very interesting book. However, it was not a book about Solving the Oak Island Mystery. The author went into

Well this has little to do with Oak Island. This book connects Norse families to the Templars and connects David and Solomon and Jesus to the Templar lineage also. Sora references Holy Blood, Holy Grail so much that I felt that I should have read that instead. The book seemed well researched but was not put together well. Most of the writing was chronologically but then would just back and forth and seemed a little scattered.

A LETDOWN! Speculative! More of a "Conspiracy Theory"...,

This book is a bit of a stretch if you are looking for FACTS.
It is more of a hodge-podge of fact and fiction leaving the reader with a convoluted mess that is hard to pick through. Speculation abounds and creative license is plentiful in this work.
Although an entertaining read, it presents many very interesting opinions, there are not supportive texts, archeological finds or historical proofs.
Please do enjoy if you are looking for fantasy,

Urban legends are a bitch when you sink a bunch of money into them, aren't they?

The book didn't solve any mysteries for me, in Oak Island or anywhere else. When King Phillip of France busted the Templars, on Friday 13th October 1307, was it their supposed amassed riches he was for getting his hands on? If so, he didn't get it. If not, where did it go? Mr Sora reckons it went down a mine shaft on Oak Island. Now that's what I call a credit crunch.

Excellent! Some dry parts but only as setting historical acts need to be set up properly. Sora provides a wealth of incendiary information that was refreshing and enlightening. I will read again.

Interesting theory. The book was a little drawn out and rather scattered.
