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?

    I did like this book from Mr. Lange. While, it was not the greatest; it was still better than some of the prior novels. This one did have the Indiana Jones vibe that I was digging. The book is split out into different parts within the storyline. Each part building on the next.While, I did like the storyline and the location; the characters were a bit dull. They were not charismatic like Indiana Jones. In fact, I kind of forgot what they looked like and their names. Although, what is lacking in the characters is made up in the story and the action. A good, quick read.

    Easy Go was Crichton's third or fourth published novel and was published in 1968 as John Lange. Andromeda Strain released the previous year was published under his real name.
    Crichton wrote Easy Go while enrolled at Harvard Medical School.

    Easy Go is an adventure novel about a small band of conspirators who find information about the hiding place of the last tomb of the Pharos, secretly excavate the tomb, and make plans to abscond with the treasure from Egypt. The book is clearly among Crichton's earlier works and suffers from a number of flaws both in terms of character development and in terms of the plot. The book is not a masterpiece and can sometimes seem flat but, once you get past the introductory parts, it is a worthwhile read. Once the excavation got under way, the story flowed quite well and the discovery of the tombs is quite compelling.

    I've been slogging through a raft of unlikable characters in my reading lately, and I needed a complete change of pace. I was in the perfect mood for an adventure about finding-- and trying to steal-- the lost tomb of a pharaoh. Written under the pen name John Lange while he was still a resident, Michael Crichton's Easy Go was exactly what I needed when I needed it. (The man wrote books while in medical school and as a resident? Did he need no sleep?)Yes, the book has its problems. The romance was rather feeble. Not only did it not seem to have much purpose in the book, it didn't do a thing for me. The characters were also stereotyped, but that almost goes hand-in-hand with most thrillers where the emphasis is on plot over character. I was more than willing to overlook the weaknesses for the luscious story. Speaking of weaknesses, I have one for a heist story well told, and this one delivers. I've always been fascinated with ancient Egypt and wondered what it would be like to actually find a pharaoh's tomb. From finding one, it's not that big of a jump to wonder what you would actually do with all that treasure-- especially if you thought you had a good chance of stealing it.If you love ancient Egypt and are in the mood for a bit of fast-paced tomb raiding, give Easy Go a try. You might just enjoy it as much as I did.

    This book was written when the author was only26 years old. The storyline was about an Egyptian tomb that had never been found. The group of eclectic characters that were trying to rob it inserted some humor. This was a fun book with a strange ending.***I received this book in return for an honest review***

    Another early Crichton thriller, first published under a pseudonym and recently reissued by Hard Case under Crichton's name. This one involves an archaeologist who thinks he's discovered clues to an unknown pharaoh's tomb in Egypt, and a plan to excavate and steal the treasure.And, again, it's reasonably entertaining, better than a lot of his later stuff. But he has a bad habit of building up the story and then ending with an anti-climactic twist that makes you wonder why you bothered. Again, the caper seems overly convoluted. He throws in lots of little details that are sometimes nifty and sometimes unnecessary. It's another book that's great for reading on the subway but probably not one to revisit.

    Crichton is one of my favorite authors, but this little novel is one of his earlier pieces that I haven't read before. It's a nice adventure crime story with some very interesting characters; Tomb Raider and the Mummy meet Ocean's 11 crew. Overall, the ending feels somewhat rushed, but I like being able to see what he was good at even in the earlier part of his writing career plus how he develops over the years. All Crichton fans should read this book.Net Galley Feedback[book:Easy Go: A Novel18078738][author:Michael Crichton5194]

    To many characters without clear definition, two many locations in to quick an order with no clear time-frame of events, and an unsatisfying and abrupt ending. All these problems overshadow an interesting setting.
