The lost city of Atlantis was said to be the world’s first advanced civilization and a powerful kingdom. Most people think of Atlantis as a highly technologically advanced civilization with space travel, automobiles, and submarines. Legend said 12000 years ago, and it disappeared suddenly in a single day and night. The theories of its location range from the coast of Ireland to the Azores Islands.
Many believe Atlantis had been found at last. But many geologists insist the Bimini Road is simply a natural formation. When you first look at the Bimini Road, it does look a lot like some artificial structure, but that impression comes from the wrong idea that in nature, you’re not going to find a lot of straight lines and highly ordered structures. The reality is, you can find these all over the place, look at crystals, look at different sorts of basalt formations. But stories of the lost city continue to intrigue explorers across the globe. The search continues. If you want to read books on Atlantis, keep reading!
5 Books About Atlantis
Atlantis is a fictional place that is famous for fantasy storytelling. Most of the underwater-based movies and books follow Atlantis. The famous character Aquaman is also based on Atlantis civilization and culture. As a fiction lover, I found many books that talk about it. So I’m going to review the top 5 books about Atlantis. Let’s start!
1. Fingerprints of the Gods: The Quest Continues
This book is a fantastic source of ancient architecture, ancestors, and ancient civilizations. The author clearly shows how the ancient civilizations were obsessed with time cycles in this book. That is reflected in their texts and stories and their architecture.
Graham Hancock is considered an expert on this. This book has nothing to do with sound healing or anything like that. He doesn’t even mention a tuning for music that also reflects these numbers. He says if we measure the base perimeter of the Great Pyramids of Giza and multiply it by 43,200, we get the Earth’s equatorial circumference.
If we measure the Great Pyramid’s height and multiply it by 43,200, we get the earth’s polar radius. So the size of the Great Pyramid is a model of Earth itself or rather than the northern hemisphere.
You can say that all this is a coincidence, but there are too many coincidences in one place here. This can’t be a coincidence. He also says that it was covered in 144,000 casing stones when the Great Pyramid was complete before it started deteriorating. How how can this be a coincidence? It’s simply not possible.
You need to get this book if you want to know it all. Everything isn’t even in this book, but this is a great source. It’s one of the books you need to have if you want to get into this field.

2. Hearts In Atlantis
This book is a compilation of short stories, though the first two stories are novella-length stories. The first story is entitled Low Men in Yellow Coats. It is about an older man named Ted Brautigan who is on the run from apparently some policing authority and a little boy he befriends named Bobby Garfield.
It’s about their friendship and Bobby helping Ted evade this authority force or figure after him. This is a great tale, and it’s excellent writing. If you have read the Dark Tower series, you will know that Ted is on the run from the crims.
The second story, Hearts in Atlantis, is about some college kids who formulate a relationship, a friendship, playing when the Great Pyramid was complete parts at school. Also, it takes place during the Vietnam era, the era when Stephen King went to college.
It’s about the whole peace and love thing, protesting the war, what college was like at that time. Also, It’s a very heartfelt friendship story. Friendship is the theme in this one, and it’s the best story in the compilation as far as the quality of the storytelling itself. All of the stories in this book are unique and exciting to read.

It’s about a girl, Alisha, and she’s a little emotional. She gets on a boat one day, and she doesn’t even know how to swim. Somehow her boat sinks, and she’s drowning. Sometimes, she opens her mouth and then discovers that she can breathe water. Then a water boy comes out in the middle of nowhere and brings her to the lost city of love.
That’s where she figures out her birth parents are from Atlantis. It’s like an entire society down there. She’s trying to figure out who her parents are, where they are, and whether they’re still alive. Along the way, she meets and makes friends enemies. She might have developed a small crush on somebody. So you’ll have to read the book to figure out who it is.
The plot is very similar, but you’ll find out you cannot guess any of it once you read the book. This book is chock full of mysteries, so every page is a new surprise. You feel connected to the main character and feel like it’s a perfect beach and summer read, like water secrets. The book is considered an upper-middle-grade fantasy novel.

5. Aquaman: The Atlantis Chronicles Deluxe Edition
When a meteorite struck the continent of Atlantis, their surviving cities used an unusual combination of science and magic to protect the people. In contrast, King Orrin had faith in the science that led his people to thrive underwater. But his brother King Shalako rejected science in favor of worshipping dark powers. It’s an aquatic addition, possibly one of the most epic sci-fi historical fiction books. This is the whole history of the aquatic nation of Atlantis.
King Aurin has a heavy hand in forming what the true Atlantis is. When it sank, the city was protected by this huge dome that would let them breathe oxygen inside and protect it from the immense pressure of the underwater sea life. This book takes you on a fantastic journey through time in a lost city. You can see many textures and colors, aquatic life, and how costumes are designed. Each story is carefully crafted that it flows.
The whole cast of characters of the Atlantis Chronicles has a part to play in the foundation and the creation of the aquatic hero. The book examines these characters and their heritage and how ideology can transcend time and reach future generations. The author provides all rich history about all the characters of Atlantis, and Peter David masterfully adapted them to comic book form. It gave us a definitive post-crisis origin for Aquaman homeworld.
