    Five thousand years ago, the Kinley built a ship capable of traveling faster than light. It carried a group of scientists to a small, distant planet - a primitive place called Earth. Its mission was peaceful observation. But when the ship was destroyed, the Kinley crew found themselves stranded in ancient Egypt, participants in the pageant of life in the time of the Pharaohs. They buried remnants of their technology deep beneath the desert and sent a last desperate message homeā€¦. Five thousand years later, the Kinley homeworld hovers on the brink of extinction.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, with caveats. There are some amazing flights of fancy here. A reader will only get into this story if they are very willing to suspend disbelief. Once that hurdle is passed, it is quite a ride. Its the whole spacemen helped the Egyptians build the Pyramids thing, a subject that I find compelling. However, getting back to that suspend disbelief thing, characters in this book are not only capable of living in suspended animation for 5,000 years, but an implanted tracer bug also works for that extended 5,000 year period. When you think about it; Wow, wow, wow. I should also mention, guys, that this book could be categorized as chick-lit


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Resurrection?

    Making granite out of chemistry set chemicals, The captain and his wife becoming Egyptian gods.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator did a superb job.


    Did Resurrection inspire you to do anything?

    No, just basically rewrite my view of history from 5000 BC forward.


    Any additional comments?

    The Mechanic is probably the most irredeemably bad meanie who ever graced a page of fiction.
