Book Review: The Final Summit

The last book I read by Andy Andrews, was Heart Mender. That was a keeper. I was really looking forward to this book, The Final Summit, and honestly was a little dissapointed.

First, it was my mistake. I didn't realize this was a sequel, and so for the whole first part of the book, I was lost.

As a sequel, this book does fine. On it's own, it seems to jump here and there and not finish any thoughts for the first couple chapters. It gets better after that...if you can make it that far without loosing interest.

It was not as riviting a fiction as I had hoped. I tended to loose my place frequently, though that might be because of all the distractions and interruptions in our household right now, and it was difficult to keep picking it up and wondering what had just happened in the story.

Once I figured out what the book was about, I actually wasn't too interested in the topic as a whole. The idea of finding a two word answer for civilazation just didn't pique my interest. My favorite parts were the historical tidbits/biography portions in the book.

If you'd like a copy, you can find the book over here at Amazon.
