I will start by stating that I am naturally biased to like anything Indiana Jones, as I have been a lifelong fan. My review will definitely reflect that.

This book serves as a sort of origin story for the famous archaeologist and a way to kick off a series of books that explore Indy's adventures before the films. For what the book was, I did enjoy it. It has the right mixture of action, romance, suspense, history, and the supernatural that make the films so enjoyable. To be short and sweet, this book is pulpy fiction. It suffers from predictability, underdeveloped and underused characters, and the lack of a concrete Macguffin, but overall it is a fun read that transports you to the adventures of a young Indy, and most likely, that's really all you're looking for if you pick up this book.
