This book is terrible. A plot line driven mainly by homophobia, underground humans cleverly named "interrans," unflinching use of exclamation points, and absolutely no character development at all makes for one of the worst reads EVER. The only reason I finished was that I kept thinking: "This has to get interesting at some point, right?." Alas, no.

Perhaps I'm not the ideal person to be reviewing this book as I've never read sci-fi stuff but, as I picked this up, thinking it was another of Dr.Cook's medical murder mysteries and found myself in another world..one underwater and the precursor to Atlantis, peopled by incredibly beautiful, ageless people, I couldn't help but be taken back to Saturday afternoon matinees at the Progress theatre.It read almost exactly like a Buck Rogers adventure and all it needed was an appearance by Ming the Merciless!! A beautiful marine biologist(and when aren't they beautiful?)is with an undersea exploration party when they are drawn into a deep fissure in an undersea mountain and their mini submarine is taken to a different world by means of water tight caverns. Ye gods..enough said !!!

This was a pleasant surprise from Robin Cook not so much because the story is intriguing as the fact that I'd never discovered anything so sci-fi-ish by Cook before. It's a little more fantasy than sci-fi, but the science it utilizes, while often a bit vague, is not so terribly far-fetched in many instances. Mainly, Abduction is a story about a mixed group of professionals who inadvertantly become a part of a fantastic utopia and how they deal with it. What if heaven existed on Earth, and you could visit it anytime...just not ever return to the life you knew before? It seems worth adapting to for a single oceanographer, worth exploiting for a pair of good-ole-boy divers, worth exposing to the president of a large ocean drilling company, but only worth escaping for a former Marine who believes he has the best interests at heart for the mismatched crew he tries to make himself unofficial leader of.
The tale is mostly build-up, the ending difficult to guess ahead of time, and the whole thing a light, easy read. It left me wishing Cook had spent more time developing relationships between the characters and describing more of the wonders of the futuristic world called Interterra, but was genuinely entertaining nonetheless. I hope to discover a more in-depth sci-fi story by this talented author sometime in the near future. This one wasn't a bad one to begin with.

Robin Cook is by far the best Medical Thriller author!
This is Definitely a Great Book. True to his nature, this book is full of suspense and the "what if" of reality. Again, after reading one of his novels, I found myself thinking about it for days.

I've read science fiction before so I know about needing to suspend disbelief while reading a story, but this one is absurd. The crew of a submersible and the 2 divers enter the secret world of Interra which exists between the upper & lower oceans of the earth. The Interreans seem advanced, but display some disturbing traits. There is a separate race of creatures which are half human-half machine who do all their work, while the Interreans mostly play. The crew & divers want to return to the surface, but the Interreans don't want people on the surface learning about Interra.
This story is clearly a rewriting of The Hollow Earth by Raymond Bernard from 1976, which was also unbelievable.

I began reading Robin Cook books when I was in junior high, and have since been addicted to them. I was looking for something I hadn't read to take with me on vacation, and picked up Abduction. Because I'm a Robin Cook fan, I was hesitant to read something other than a medical murder mystery, but I was definitely taken in by Abduction.
The opening of the book takes you out to the sea, where scientists are drilling through the earth's core. All of a sudden there is a halt in the drilling due to a bit breaking, and the scientists and divers are forced to go deep below the ocean to examine the problem.
As the plot evolves, the divers and scientists are "abducted" by a mysterious force; they find themselves in a cave (below or above the earth? you'll find out!), only to come a huge metalic door. They open it, and are put through a series of purification processes that appear outer-wordly and completely advanced.
They soon learn that they have been taken by a society living underneath the earth's core, a utopian world not unlike Eden where everything seems possible. Everything, however, seems too perfect. The sci-fi thriller ends with a surprising, though somewhat predictable, conclusion.
Although I agree that the characters are pretty stereotypical (and even a bit prejudice if you ask me), this book has a good moral to it. If you're looking for a quick beach-side read, this is for you. If you're a huge Robin Cook fan, this is for you. If you're looking to read a good Robin Cook novel, don't start with Abduction (try Coma).

Let's start from the beginning, first, if you read this book and you expect a medical thriller like: Coma, Outbreak, Fever, Chromosome 6 or Toxin among others, you will be disappointed and you won't like this book, if you see this book as a Sci Fi book as the books of Jules Verne is an incredible book.
The story of Atlantis, the lost city, is good, and the end is just as Dr. Cook know how to end his books, there is no other end to this book, but also at the end Dr. Cook gives us a very good message: "No matter who are the good or the bad guys, the people who has the power, technology, etc, are the winners, in one way or another." You just can't say I don't like you and just go, that is the very truth.
