Book Review- The Final Summit By Andy Andrews
This is mankind’s last chance. Centuries of greed, pride, and hate have sent humanity hurtling toward disaster, and far from its original purpose. There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship, and it consists of only two words.
With time running out, it is up to David Ponder and a cast of history’s best and brightest minds to uncover this solution before it is too late. The catch? They are allowed only five tries to discover the answer.
Readers first encountered David Ponder in The Traveler's Gift. Now, in The Final Summit, Andrews combines a riveting narrative with astounding history in order to show us the one thing we must do when we don’t know what to do.
Review: This is a simple read with a profound message. Although The Final Summit is a sequel, I have not read the traveler's gift, and it stood alone wonderfully.
I was riveted by the historical fiction in this book. Especially the story of Eric Erickson. It will amaze you.
The solution to mankind's problem in The Final Summit is still running through my head and encouraging me days after finishing the book.
Mr. Andrews did an amazing job writing this story.
