Book Review - Seven Wonders

If you've been following my current book review series, you know that I discovered my last book, Magnificent Vibration, when I walked into the library and hoped and literally prayed for a book that I would enjoy.  I picked up Magnificent Vibration because it seemed maybe more than coincidental that I had just experienced vibrations in my leg.  In the same trip, I spied Seven Wonders by Ben Mezrich, and thought "hmmm, seven is a good number."  So I grabbed that book, too.  A strange way to select a book, for sure, but in these two instances it worked like a charm.

Here is the synopsis from Amazon:

When the reclusive mathematician Jeremy Grady is murdered, it’s up to his estranged brother Jack to find out why. Jack's search leads him on a far-flung journey—from Brazil, India, Peru, and beyond—as he unravels the mystery that links the Seven Wonders of the World, and discovers that Jeremy may have hit upon something that’s been concealed for centuries. With the help of scientist Sloane Costa, they discover a conspiracy to hide a road map to the Garden of Eden—and the truth behind a mythological ancient culture.

This book is definitely a four-star.  It is the first in an upcoming trilogy and I can't wait for the rest!  I could not put this book down.  The story moves the reader through many exotic locales filled with lots of action and adventure.  If you like fast-moving reads, you will definitely want to pick up this book.
