Very disappointed, the synopsis
October 16th, 2014
The synopsis sounded good, but this book should be in the children's Section as it is written for a nine year old. The last time I read a book written in this manner was 55 years ago when I was six.

Terse narrative
July 21st, 2014
This is a terse narrative of events over a 3000+ year period. Our galaxy conflicts spacially with another. In anticipation, an atk carrying six million humans, most in cryogenic suspension, leaves the galaxy to explore earth-like planets in other galaxies that might host mankind''s survival, if earth does not survive the galactic collision. When the ark returns more than 2000 years later, several planets, earth included, are missing from our solar system. Two new planets, though, are created in approximate earth orbit, and new human communities and governments are created from the people preserved/asleep on the ark. There is little character development.

Although the stories reads almost as a script for movie or play at times, it is an interesting way to present the author s story. I enjoyed the quick reading story and look forward to the next efforts by this author.
