It kept me going through hours of freeway driving. Both the intrigue and the science kept me fascinated. I was convinced that it all just might happen. Wow.
I couldn't stop reading. For someone who'd spent considerable time at sea in a small boat it brought back lots of recollections of encounters with bad weather and big ships. The story is very gripping, to the point where I was awake most of two nights reading it.
I couldn't put it down. May have been a bit gruesome at times, but that didn't slow me down. Both the story and narration were the best. It was hard to believe that it was true.
Fun story and humor, great narration. I would have given it a full 5* if it hadn't gotten so verbose. At times it was hard to listen to the details of the present situation when it was obvious that changes were soon to come. From others' reviews it sounds like things improve as you get into the series, so I will listen to the next in line.
Though I started with the assumption that I'd be drawn into the mystery, I never found much to keep me awake. I even repeated a few chapters with hopes that I'd missed something. Sorry.
This is a fantastic summary of our present understanding of early human life in America. It not only gave me a good summary of migration to and through America, but also the science behind this understanding. Though the explanations got quite technical at times (genetics, for example), I never felt overwhelmed. Both the writing and reading were great.
I couldn't put the book down. Where's Sallinger? What's she up to now? My curiosity and imagination were in constant motion. I loved it.
