The lost city of Atlantis was said to be the world’s first advanced civilization and powerful kingdom. Most people consider Atlantis 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 and different sorts of basalt formations. But stories of the lost city continue to intrigue explorers across the globe. The search continues.
Atlantis is a legendary lost city that has captured the imagination of people for centuries. Reading books on Atlantis can provide insight into the various theories and interpretations surrounding this enigmatic city and the historical context in which these myths originated.
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. The ancient Greek philosopher Plato wrote the first book about Atlantis around 360 BCE. The book is called “Timaeus,” a dialogue between several characters, including Socrates, Critias, and Timaeus. They discuss the nature of the universe and the story of Atlantis.
As a fiction lover, I found many books that talk about it. So I’m going to discuss the top 5 books about Atlantis. Let’s start!
1. Fingerprints of the Gods: The Quest Continues
Fingerprints of the Gods is a fantastic source of ancient architecture, ancestors, and civilizations. The author clearly shows how 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.
We get the earth’s polar radius if we measure the Great Pyramid’s height and multiply it by 43,200. So the size of the Great Pyramid is a model of Earth itself 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 it was covered in 144,000 casing stones when the Great Pyramid was completed 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 get into this field.

2. Hearts In Atlantis
Hearts In Atlantis is a compilation of short stories, though the first two 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, 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 in the Vietnam era, when Stephen King went to college.
It’s about the whole peace and love thing, protesting the war, and what college was like then. Also, It’s a very heartfelt friendship story. Friendship is the theme in this one, and it’s the best story in the compilation regarding the quality of the storytelling itself. All of the stories in this book are unique and exciting to read.

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 believed 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 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 so that it flows.
The cast of characters of the Atlantis Chronicles plays a part in the aquatic hero’s foundation and creation. The book examines these characters, their heritage, and how ideology can transcend time and reach future generations. The author provides a rich history of Atlantis characters, and Peter David masterfully adapted them to comic book form. It gave us a definitive post-crisis origin for Aquaman homeworld.
