    Overall

    As usual Feist brings his best. My only criticism is I thought it ended abrubtly even knowing there would be a book 3. Richard Ferrone, the reader here is much less able than the reader for book one; John Meagher. Characters become much less interesting and harder to tell apart. Pronunciations are different than what I and Meagher thought them to be.

    I still give it 5 stars due to my un-dieing love for FEIST

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    DJM says: "Good story from front to back"

    Overall

    Lots of stories (books, movies, etc ...) leave you wanting more but Niven really foots the bill here and plays this story out. In a good way! My next credit will be used for a Larry Niven book ... does that tell you something!

    Great characters introduced thoughtfully as the book progresses. Feels real with very little to no stretching of "the truth".

    Nice work.

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    This was a great story about going after your dreams. It's very well narrated and kept my interest on my commutes home.
