Such a great concept: archaeologists in the distant future - a new Ice Age world - come across the Louvre museum under the snow and ice. The artwork is preserved and they speculate and make assumptions about civilizations of the past based on the random assortment of art. Great idea, right?

Then why in the world was the character dialogue so WEIRD and nonsensical? At first I thought it was something lost in translation - this book was originally in French - but after more reading, I think it was really that the author was a talented illustrator/artist but had poor writing skill... or was he trying to say that this is how people of the future will talk? I don't know - but it lost me.

I was generous and gave 2 stars - more like 1.5 stars in my rating system.
