    1 thought on “The Tiger Warrior

    1. David Gibbins novel, The Tiger Warrior, reveals the author is an intelligent, educated and worldly man The novel brims with historical and archaeological facts and theories spanning in time and place from the birth of the unified Chinese empire in 221 BCE to Caesarean Rome to British colonial rule on the Indian subcontinent to present day Afghanistan Most of these facts and hypotheses are intriguing, and all are patently the result of Gibbins commendably deep research, study and thought.Unfortun [...]

    2. Why do I do it This is my third book by David Gibbons and I like them less and less I keep thinking a real archaeologist writing an adventure novel, how perfect If I were smart enough I would BE an archaeologist I also want to be Dirk Pitt or Kurt Austin So what s the problem He s a good writer what don t I like Um how about boring You can t just throw in a ton of facts and expect them to be interesting Besides, how will we, the great unwashed, differentiate between what the author knows to be [...]

    3. I liked this one the best, after the very first one cause really, after Atlantis everything would be downhill It had things that I disliked from the other books so I ll try not to be negative and go into them again There were flashbacks to two different time periods and I wouldn t mind reading , fuller, stories about those time periods Though the characters do pretty much piece together what happened somewhat annoyingly, okay, so I went into it a little P And the mystery of the jewels never get [...]

    4. I wanted to like this book but couldn t get into it It had everything I normally love Roman history, the culture of India, archaeologists, etc etc etc But it didn t grab me The flicking backwards and forwards between past and present felt forced, and the conversations stilted.Some people may love it, but it wasn t for me, and life is too short to force yourself to finish books you don t love when there are so many good books out there waiting to be read.

    5. This is written by an archeologist who writes books, rather than a novelist, and it shows It s about a marine archeologist called Jack aren t all heroes nowadays who travels to various exotic locations to uncover a mystery surrounding some roman legionaries and a chinese emperor, and his own ancestor There s a shady enemy in the background, with fairly impausible motivation, the Tiger Warrior himself, and what looks like a romance in there which doesn t come to anything.There was lots of emphasi [...]

    6. I definitely didn t enjoy this one as much as The Last Gospel but it wasn t a bad book Far less action than in others and the ending was pretty crap Felt like nothing was resolved at all This book was really about the author wanting to fictionalize one his ancestors and tie his family to some great part of history On the positive side it fired my interest in India and has lead me to plan a trip there this year.

    7. I m really enjoying this whole series This book bounced between telling, briefly, the story from the ancient perspective to current day There was a lot of geography and references to historical places, people, and cultures I always read the added chapters at the end were Gibbons explains what was historical and what he chose to vary from Its a different style than I ve read from Gibbins I enjoyed it.

    8. A fair archaeological book, but nothing great The story is a little confusing as it keeps jumping around in time and in the end their is no real ending Recommended only to Gibbins fans.

    9. I found this book somewhat boring, going gradually down the slope until the boring end I actually liked the short and few parts about the great great grandfather , than the rest of the book.

    10. about the author Canadian born underwater archaeologist and novelist Gibbins learned to scuba dive at the age of 15 in Canada, and dived under ice, on shipwrecks and in caves while he was still at school He has led numerous underwater archaeology expeditions around the world, including five seasons excavating ancient Roman shipwrecks off Sicily and a survey of the submerged harbour of ancient Carthage In 1999 2000 he was part of an international team excavating a 5th century BC shipwreck off Tur [...]

    11. My wife and I have been reading through David Gibbins Jack Howard series thanks to our local library It is very much thanks to that library, as we would have felt hard done by had we paid money for any of these books, and I was amused to note one of the later books on my brother s bookshelf recently and he was not happy he had actually paid for the book Neither my wife nor I have been overly impressed with any of Gibbins novels, but she turns out to be as much a completist as I am and so, having [...]

    12. The Tiger Warrior follows archaeologist and adventurer Jack Howard as he follows a tantalising clue that perhaps some escaped Roman legionaries had found themselves pitched against the bodyguard of the First Emperor of China and one had taken refuge in the jungles of India.This might sound far fetched but Gibbins knows his archaeology and comes up with a plausible if tenuous story to make this work The story is then taken up at the end of the 19th century in India when Howard s great great grand [...]

    13. Good David Gibbons is a trained archaeologist There is so much fact or at least, supposition based on evidence throughout history in this book that it is really thrilling to read His details of the Koya people of India, and the Pashtun people of Afghanistan, were fascinating to read The basis of the adventure, the possibility of Roman soldiers being captured as slaves, and moving into Asia along the Silk road and then becoming mercenaries is very realistic and the way that he paints the possible [...]

    14. I can not for the life of me figure out why it takes me so long to read a novel by David Gibbins They aren t poorly written, overly dull, or off topic from what I usually read I just seem to read his books during periods of time when I find myself incredibly busy with outside events Having said all that, I did like the book which is a departure from the three previous novels in this adventure series The main character, Jack Howard, is a marine archeologist, and thusly, the novels generally take [...]

    15. I haven t finished it yet, but it seems to be a nice book, just like the other ones However, the prologue is a bit long, and at times I didn t really stay put Once I started the reading, the main chapters that is, it suddenly started to become interesting For some years now I ve been really fascinated in the Eastern Asian history and culture, so this book has been good just cause of that Sure, loads of it is speculation and just pure imagination, but it s still very interesting I did have a har [...]

    16. The story was decent I guess that is why I got back to these even as they frustrate me The concepts are good, and there is even some good, like the background written as flashbacks But the dialogue continues to turn into lectures Rembember when in profesor so and so s class Oh yeah, for the next several pages There are other ways to get that same message across.A few other comments Note to David Gibbins editor It is not necessary to repeat Jack s great, great, grandfather every 5th page we get i [...]

    17. I ve read other reviews of this book and some rated this book very poorly Everyone is welcome to his opinion, but for me I like the flow of The Tiger Warrior I like the amount of history and legend that is put into the book Gibbins continues to lure in his audience and keep it enthralled as he weaves a web of history and myth The Tiger Warrior takes our hero away to the East He looks into the possibility of a grave robbery of the very first Chinese Emporer I will not spoil the story with many de [...]

    18. Look, the premise for the story is great Lost Roman legion ends up in China as slaves, but eventually escape and make it as far as India Pretty awesome But the execution was never quite there for me It was trying to tie three different stories together the Roman legion, Jack Howard s ancestor in late 19th century India, and Jack Howard in the present and didn t really deliver on any of them There was far too much description and very little actual action And what action there was pretty much boi [...]

    19. On the plus side, this is a much better book than the risible Atlantis, which is why it merits a second star It s still about unlikely one dimensional characters pursuing implausible plots, but that s to be expected in this genre The characters might be the biggest failing of this novel They are just not engaging in any way The background and archaeology are interesting, the so for being a less well known story than the Atlantis legend The real reason it gets a second star is because the episod [...]

    20. I wish I had never picked up this waste of paper.I may have liked it if I had read the first books, but I sincerely doubt it It was so technical, details about this gun and this piece of equipment, that I kept losing my focus and had to reread pieces multiple times to even grasp the basics The details about some vague historical thing made it so unbearable at times, that I just wanted to throw the book I would have if it weren t borrowed from the library.And the grammatical errors Oh my gosh, ju [...]

    21. A book that claims to cross the best of Indiana jones and Dan Brown should be exciting, and this book was decidedly not I only got through the first 150 pages or so, so perhaps it picks up, but I just couldn t finish it The characters fell flat, the writing was repetitive, and the awkward photographs made it seem like the author couldn t do his job in describing the scene to the readers I gave it two stars for the potential to become interesting, since there is a intriguing premise for the novel [...]

    22. Two ancient cultures, a lost treasure from the distant past what powerful secrets does it conceal.Soon the world s top marine archaeologist, Jack Howard, and his team of scientific experts and ex Special Forces adventurers are pushing their way through the mysterious jungles of India, following in the footsteps of a legendary band of missing Roman legionnaires Dive into a new full throttle hunt from master of the action adventure thriller David Gibbins a little Dirk Pitt ish but still a well wri [...]

    23. I was a bit apprehensive to read this book I bought it on sale because it sounded interesting, and then checked out the reviews before starting Wow No one likes this book And neither do I Although the history is interesting, the book just takes forever to get going Not only that, but I think David Gibbins is completely ADD he takes these tangents that get you excited at first, but eventually you just get annoyed because they never lead anywhere Basically, it s a book with ten different stories t [...]

    24. I was realllly surprised reading all the negative and not so amazing reviews I personally loved it I literally couldn t put it away It was a real page turner Two different story lines are skillfully put together and kept me intrigued till the last page The book was interesting to read, because you learn a lot of fascinating facts from the history of different cultures i personally googled a lot of stuff while reading it Though you have to draw a line between facts and fiction To put it in a nuts [...]

    25. I really enjoy the adventures of Jack Howard and Costas I try not to make of the adventure than what is on the page The scenes are dramatic and filled with details that can take your imagination to the places Gibbons is writing about Tiger Warrior gave some interesting twists to what might have happened to the 15th Legionaires as well as the First Emperor A lot of what ifs and maybe s, but mostly a high adventure.

    26. I quit reading this book when I found myself skipping and parts to get to anything interesting I started out skipping the historical parts, then and of the contemporary ones.I found the first few of the author s books to be OK, but I ve been losing interest quickly in each succeeding volume I doubt I ll finish this one try another Interesting premise for the story, though I ll give two stars for that.

    27. After having read all four novels, I m not sure whether I like this one or Crusader Gold the least There is a lot Jack backstory here, which I liked very much and was intruiging But sadly it was countered with Jack being a MarySue MartyStue, which I hated to see.The novel itself was again well researched and had a lot of archaeological depth The ending was a bit unsatisfying again , but I m still looking forward to the next one

    28. There wasn t as much diving in this book, and it seemed to stray from the Atlantis Crusades premise established in the previous three However, there is a connection to later books that makes this one important to the series.Also, while Gibbins is great with a story, I didn t find the relationship between Jack Howard and Rebecca the teenaged daughter he d known for all of a year to be quite believable here.
