Top critical review
June 2, 2019
This was the fifth book that I have read about Oak Island and I really appreciated that it is based on some serious historical research, and not just a regurgitation of old stories and wives tales. There is a lot of good information in this book that I have never read elsewhere - Sullivan puts to rest a lot of the wild theories that others have come up with about what happened here, but he never really settles on one for himself. I gave this book three stars because I found Sullivan's writing style difficult to follow at times, and because the last third of the book just seemed to ramble. I think that Sullivan assumes that the reader of this book would have prior knowledge of the story - either through previous readings or from watching the TV show. I would not recommend this book to someone who is not familiar with the Oak Island story.
