The book has a surprise ending. The Codex is a treasure - literally and figuratively - three + brothers on a wild ride to find their father's inheritance in the Honduras. It spawned an excellent sequel, Tyrannosaur Canyon, but Codex is amazing - non-stop action as the Broadbents find what treasure really is -. One of the most wonderful 'characters' is Hairy Bugger - he features prominently in the plot and readers will really loved Bugger's part. Mr. Preston, keep 'em coming - Fans of good reads - this ranks high up the list.

Written by Douglas Preston, Audiobook narrated by Scott Sowers. Narrated by: Scott Sowers. Length: 12 hrs and 44 mins.

Douglas Preston doesn't think much of his audience (or maybe the trash compactor scene from Star Wars overly impressed him) - how else to explain a character's emergence from a sealed crypt, wh An excellent read for those days when you have just a minute or two here or there - the chapters are that short.

I really liked the characters, the Broadbent family. The reader was really good with the voices. The only thing that would have made it better was to get the unabridged version. I am sure there was a lot more to the story in the unabridged book. Unfortunately, I listened to The Codex AFTER reading/listening to Preston's Tyrannosaur Canyon, a terrific book that I recommend highly. Codex suffers greatly in comparison to Tyrannosaur -altho' I'd say Codex.

Preston, Douglas J. The codex, Douglas Preston. p. cm. A Tom Doherty Associates book. Niccolo Capponi offered some of his usual brilliant ideas regarding several tricky scenes in the book. Several books were useful to me while writing The Codex, in particular Redmond O’Hanlons In Trouble Again and Sastun: My Apprenticeship with a Maya Healer by Rosita Arvigo-an excellent book that I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject of Mayan medicine. My daughter Selene read the manuscript several times and offered top-notch criticism, for which I am immensely grateful.

I recently read Tyrannosaur Canyon, choosing that book because it was listed as "Wyman Ford Book 1" so I thought I was beginning at the beginning, so to speak. Well, it turns out that it is NOT the beginning. THIS book is a predecessor in that same narrative, and it should be named "Tom Broadbent Book 1" while Tyrannosaur Canyon should be named "Tom Broadbent Book 2" Now, having started to read this book, I am realizing that I basically already know how the book ends.
This is (hopefully) a stand-alone story. It partially takes place in the Honduran jungle where Preston describes his personal adventures in the discovery of a hidden city in "The Lost City of the Monkey God." In some ways it reminds me of the John Wayne movies "Big Jake" and "The Sons of Katy Elder." The estranged sons of a patriarch learn to get together in a common cause.
I love the stuff that Preston writes with Lincoln Child, so I was super excited to check out his solo stuff. This book did not disappoint, and in fact I really liked it! The plot was fun and excited. I couldn't put it down!
I found the first couple of chapters overly descriptive, as if every adjective had to be used, and was ready to put this book aside. However, as I progressed through the next chapters, the adjectives decreased and the storyline took off. I found myself finishing the book in one evening, engrossed with the outcome. And I have to admit "The Codex" was well worth the read.
The book was excellent. Anything Douglas Preston writes is excellent. The book has a surprise ending. If you haven't read it, you should try it.
Good read. I read this because it is similar to the Forrest Fenn Treasure. It was a good story and kept me interested to the end.
I loved the book but really need to know what happens to the professor! Maybe all will be revealed in another book. Have to say the vivid descriptions of the rainforest/jungle and all the critters just creeps me out!!
Preston and Child are awesome authors that provide consistently great thrillers! Their writing style id easy and free flowing that catches you meandering through the verbiage, then bammm you're expectantly drawn into a most exciting situation. Lots of action and death and anticipations. Definitely a great read for lovers of Thrillers .....
