Piers Anthony's Isle of Woman is a monumental epic of unprecedented drama and scope, retelling the saga of humankind in a unique and dramatic way. The culmination of more than a quarter century of research, it is a stunningly ambitious achievement from a master of imaginative fiction.
At once grand in scope and intimate in human detail, Isle of Woman tells the story of a man and a woman born at the dawn of human history, separated by fate, yet united by an unquenchable passion that even time could not conquer: Blaze, the fire worker who raised his kind of savagery, and Ember, the beautiful green-eyed woman who forever haunted his dreams.
Through their eyes and those of their descendants, we witness humanity's odyssey from savagery to civilization as they are reborn again and again throughout history. We share with these two eternal lovers an unforgettable odyssey of triumph, tragedy, and discovery that takes them from the African savannah to the ancient Middle East, from the South Pacific to the caves of northern Europe, from the court of imperial China to India during the British Raj, ending in a stunning reunion in an America in ruins only a few short years from now.

it took me awhile to read this book or should I say listen to this book. at first I thought I could not get into it but I kept listening. at the end I thought it was a very interesting history about man's kind past and what it could be in the future. it's a good read. I hope you enjoy it
Reader inflections made it sound condescending. I love Piers Anthony books and this almost turned me away from getting anymore. Thank goodness the reader was changed in other books.
I tried, really, I did. I just can't finish this book. Characters aren't 'embraceable'... story is just words, narration flat... I did try, really.
