Publisher's Summary

Beneath the sands of the Egyptian desert lies treasure beyond imagining. And when a professor of archeology finds clues to the location of a Pharaoh's lost tomb in ancient hieroglyphs, he hatches a plan to find the burial site - and plunder it.

But can a five-man team of smugglers and thieves uncover what the centuries have hidden? And even if they find it, can they escape with it...and with their lives?

Archeological Adventure in 1960's Egypt

It is easy to see the flashes of Chrichton brilliance in these early stories. His research into history is remarkable, the characters are believable, and often funny, and the story is tight and loaded with enough suspense to keep the reader interested. Very well done and thoroughly enjoyable. Also Christopher Lane is one of the best narrators I've had the pleasure of listening to.

Wonderful Throwback!

Loved hearing this great story! Reminded me of being a kid in the sixties and loving stories of Egypt.

Solid Archaeological Caper Story

Crichton would go on to write more interesting, compelling novels but this simple caper tale from 1966 is an entertaining way to pass an afternoon or two. It's a straightforward, well-paced adventure with fun characters and a few genuinely memorable moments, well read by Christopher Lane.

Fun Caper Novel with a Great Twist

This was another wonderful book of Michael Crichton 's early works, writing as John Lange. Easy Go is a highly entertaining caper book. A professor and freelance reporter hatch a scheme to plunder an unknown Egyptian tomb. It is a wonderful character piece, several Americans and several Europeans as an unusual crew, financed by a Brit, Lord Grover (who is quite fun himself). A masterfully planned operation goes fairly smoothly. I will quote Lord Grover himself here. "All along, they had been making a mistake. They had been thinking that the Egyptians were fools and they were geniuses. Neither was true." A masterful plot twist marks the Crichton touch. It would've made an excellent film. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. Christopher Lane once again handles the narration beautifully. Very enjoyable with thrills along the way. Absolutely adored the ending.

A great short read!!

I am ashamed with myself for not having read Crichton’s earlier work. This was honestly a well done book and the narrator did one heck of a job. Made the characters easy to notice and more entertaining. Alan Conway in particular. Highly recommend this book.

Good early Crichton novel

While the ending could have been better, you can start to see the mature Crichton here. The story was interesting and reasonably fast paced. The characters were generally believable. Overall this was an enjoyable listen.

Fun story

Any additional comments?

I thought I'd try this early effort by Michael Crichton, writing as John Lange, and was pleasantly surprised by how it kept my interest. The characters are really fun and enjoyable. I loved the story of a group of misfits secretly excavating a undiscovered pharaoh's tomb in Egypt. The details were well done and believable. Of course, the real plus was the narrator, Christopher Lane, who always brings the characters to life. His portrayal of the wealthy, but kooky English benefactor sounded like Michael Caine which fit the character perfectly. Great twist at the end and a fun adventure throughout.

Great Storyline - Very Interesting!

Love Crichton! Well worth the time.

Would have loved to listen to it with the kids, but it was too sexually suggestive (and sometimes no so suggestive). Profanity is nearly non-existent.

Very mediocre book.

Silly story and impossible ending. Disappointing because I usually enjoy this author's work.
Started well but the ending was forced.

Easy Go not what I was expecting

This was a good book but I only gave it three stars overall because it was not your usual Michael Crichton book. It was one of his earlier books and if you are looking for something along the lines of James Bond or Clive Cussler you will love it because that is the mark it hits. As I was looking for more sify than anything else it left me wanting more. I would definitely encourage everyone to read this book and the narrator is very very good just know it is not typical Crichton.

Rambling

Could have been a good story but padded out with lots of totally irrelevant stuff, not a good read really
