it was ok
Read in June, 2009

i liked this a lot at first ... time travel, ancient maya, doomsday, ancient games, what's not to like? but after a zippy start involving dirty bombs, ancient mayan prophecies and game theory, Our Hero goes back in time in some fuzzy way i can't explain and then the book slows to an absolute crawl.

after hundreds of pages of bloodshed and mayhem that got boring after a while, i actually skipped ahead a bit just to wrap this thing up already and see how it all ties together only to find that ... it doesn't.

700+ pages to get to a ... avert your eyes now if you don't want a spoiler 'cause here it comes ... a to-be-continued. seriously, a to-be-continued. and not a cliff hanger one either, i couldn't care less what happens to the maya prophecy by the end of that slog.

too bad. it started off so well.
