Review by: BozenaH on July 01, 2016 :
I reread this book the second time for a specific reason. This time I pretended that it is not fiction, but a prophetic account of things that must happen. There is nothing in the book that even suggests that we can avoid the fate that awaits us. Read it and let us know if you agree.

In my judgment, we could be a lot worse off. And, not for the world, but for individuals the book offers hope. Hope of survival.

Finally I got to the next novel from my favorite author. I think I read every single book he ever wrote. I just love his style, the complexity and depth of his characters. He takes me on trips on which he makes me think while at the same time enjoying the ride. Mr. Law is also a true entertainer.
And now, I’ve been raised to the aerie of Olympus and felt quite at home rubbing shoulders with gods. An extraordinary story! The world descends to primitive times. Economy is in ruins, governments collapse. On top of that, geological upheavals play havoc with land and water.
Tragedy?
Read and find out for yourself. I guarantee you’ll be surprised. I was amazed.

Review by: Patrick Johnson on March 20, 2015 :
I loved the whole trilogy, but “OLYMPUS—of Gods and Men” left me stunned. The author unveils ancient knowledge, not just biblical but reaching back to other mythologies as if they were obvious, self-evident, and he does it in a clear, concise and understandable fashion.

But that’s not all. The book is easy to read, exciting, suspenseful, mysterious, you name it, the book’s got it. Read it. Read it and tell others. They’ll love it too.

Well, it’s rare that I’m at a loss for words but ‘blown away’ comes to mind. This trilogy is as inimitable as they come. I think it will be a long time before I experience anything quite like this again.

Once you have read this trilogy or even just one of these books, your mind will be on a high like no other. Everything is just so well balanced for such a complex book. From philosophy to quantum physics to global catastrophe, this book has it all and as complicated as it sounds it’s actually unbelievably enjoyable to read.

I took the journey and I’m so glad I did, this is a book like no other. You don’t need to have a Degree in philosophy or quantum physics to understand it either, Law does a fantastic job of appealing to the intellect in us all.

A fantastic read!

Review by: Fred Schäfer on Oct. 30, 2014 :
This novel plays in the future, but is it science fiction? Yes and No. Embedded in the plot are fascinating philosophical topics. If there were a genre called philosophical science fiction, that's where it probably would fit in nicely.
Stan I.S. Law, whose real name is Stanislaw Kapuscinski, is a deep thinker. He has written thirty books, give or take a few. I have read quite a few of them. They have all been fascinating. They are not necessarily easy books. However, for readers who have an interest in philosophical and esoteric topics, dealing with questions such as, "What is reality?" and "Is there life after death?", reading this novel will be hugely enjoyable. Parts of this book reminded me of topics the author also addressed in another five star novel, “Gift of Gamman”.
For me, this book is a page-turner. I enjoyed the philosophical and intellectual complexities and speculations that are embedded in the plot. "OLYMPUS - Of Gods and Men" is a thought-provoking novel. The protagonists are friendly people. I would like to meet them, especially Ambrosia. I give this novel top marks and recommend it to people who are willing to step outside the square, so to say, and allow themselves to be fascinated by the "impossible possibilities" that may be hidden just beneath the surface of our existence.
This novel is book number three in a trilogy. For readers who have never read anything by Stan I.S. Law, I recommend that they start with book number one, “WALL - Love, Sex and Immortality”.

Review by: Marlon (Marvin) D. Clark on Oct. 05, 2014 :
I am an avid reader of books by Stan I.S. Law, and after this Trilogy, I will continue to be his admirer. He is the only author I know who not only entertains me, but from whom I learn something new every time.
In Olympus, part 3 of the Aquarius Trilogy, I found echoes of Jainism, wherein the Ages rotate from Golden to the depravity of materialism only to rise again to another Golden Age, which Law describes as the Second Eden. It is hard to accept that at present, in the ‘spiritual’ sense, we are not evolving but rather devolving, and yet, each time we sink to materialism nature seems to come to our aid and reverses the process once again to spiritual heights.

Only Stan Law manages to describe this philosophy as part of a natural cycle in a convincing way. I am amazed, as always, how he succeeds in making his reality acceptable to his readers. I am looking forward to the next book from his prolific author who manages to maintain the highest literary standard in every book.

Thanks again, Mr. Law.

Review by: Hanna K. Loda on Oct. 05, 2014 :
I read Olympus in three days, then I was sorry I hurried. What an incredible imagination. Stan Law unfolds the ancient mysteries with the same ease as describing yesterday’s weather. And he even makes the weather fascinating. He virtually destroys the world, buries our civilization, and emerges victorious in a new Garden of Eden. How’s that for a happy ending! But it’s not just where he ends up, it’s how he get there. Prepare yourself for a trip of a lifetime. But if you really want to enjoy it, read the whole Trilogy. I am very glad I did. So were my friends. You will not regret it! Guaranteed.

Review by: Sylvester Drake on Oct. 02, 2014 :
Love, Sex, and Immortality turned, under Pluto Effect, into apocalyptic destruction, from which a new world emerges to offer us a taste of paradise. A must read for young and old, for serious scholars and for people seeking pure entertainment. Mr. Law’s inimitable style raised the expectations of human potential to Olympic heights. Literally and figuratively. And extraordinary novel that is bound to stand the test of time.

Review by: Jo Steinman on Sep. 30, 2014 :
I couldn’t put the book down. Book 1 and 2 of the Aquarius Trilogy created conditions in which Book 3 became a must. Period of social unrest advanced to global turmoil in Pluto Effect, which demanded reconciliation between the Many and the Few. “OLYMPUS—of Gods and Men” lifts us to our potential, offering the explanation of ancient scriptures, unfolds and applies our inherent powers in such a way that they become absolutely believable. The biblical expression “Ye are gods”, takes on a new meaning which makes more sense than anything or any book I’ve ever read.

Highly recommended.

Review by: Adam Kerry on Sep. 28, 2014 :
No book has ever solved so many mysteries as this one. Whether you believe in any religious dogmas or in any ancient myths, this book will raise you to a new level of awareness, and push you towards your ultimate potential. A fantastic eye-opener for all. It seems that we could indeed be gods, if only we had to will to believe it! But most of al it's fun. Pure, unadulterated fun!

Review by: Barbara Woolfe on Sep. 27, 2014 :
Anyone who read Wall—Love, Sex, and Immortality, followed by the Pluto Effect, was biting his or her nails while waiting for the conclusion of this out-worldly epic. The first two books raised my appetite so high that I doubted if the author, Stan I.S. Law, could rise to my expectations.

I needn’t have worried. He not only did, but managed to surpass them. OLYMPUS—of Gods and Men restructures the philosophy of life, restructures both morals and ethics, and in addition is highly entertaining. The author manages to mix life, love, religion, philosophy and ends up with Immortality, making the full circle to Book I of this astounding trilogy.

Bravo Mr. Law!

Review by: Anetta Bach on Sep. 24, 2014 :
If you like Greek mythology and ancient mysteries, then this book is for you. If you like metaphysics and philosophy, then this book is for you. I you like suspense, then this book is for you. If you like mystery, this book is for you. Let’s face it, if you like reading you’ll enjoy this book. And frankly, all the other books but Stan I.S. Law. He’s a man who not only can really write, but he builds up his characters, he tell a story that draws you in, he adds poetic descriptions and wraps it all up in a love story. It doesn’t get any better than that.

I read an advance copy of this book. At last I can share my impressions with you. I hope you’ll do likewise.
