The Final Summit | [Andy Andrews]

The Final Summit

This is mankind’s last chance. Centuries of greed, pride, and hate have sent humanity hurtling toward disaster, and far from its original purpose. There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship, and it is only two words. With time running out, it is up to David Ponder and a cast of history’s best and brightest minds to uncover this solution before it is too late. The catch? They are allowed only five tries to discover the answer. Andy Andrews combines a riveting narrative with astounding history in order to show us the one thing we must do when we don’t know what to do.

Publisher's Summary

A riveting time travel parable in the tradition of the best-selling The Traveler's Gift.

This is mankind’s last chance. Centuries of greed, pride, and hate have sent humanity hurtling toward disaster, and far from its original purpose. There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship, and it is only two words. With time running out, it is up to David Ponder and a cast of history’s best and brightest minds to uncover this solution before it is too late. The catch? They are allowed only five tries to discover the answer.

Readers first met David Ponder in The Traveler’s Gift. Now, in The Final Summit, Andy Andrews combines a riveting narrative with astounding history in order to show us the one thing we must do when we don’t know what to do.

    "Interesting concept"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story has an interesting concept. I would recommend it to someone who has an open mind. While it is Christian fiction, it is not scriptural. That might tend to turn someone away.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Many of the characters from history were interesting. My favorite was King David. His sense of authority came through in the character. But, Winston Churchill's sense of humor was fun, too!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It has lots of funny parts. It is also a thought-provoking book.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks for keeping it clean!!!

    Story
    "from around a table revolves the story"
    Would you listen to The Final Summit again? Why?

    Oh, yes! there is so much insight here and the presentation captures you. The Travelers Gift, which preceeds this book, is equally drawing to the soul.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were so unique and tru to their form in the book andout of the book as some are historical. They were interesting, as was the author's presentation in reading his book.


    What does Andy Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There is so much in his reading, voices unique for these eifferent chatacters, intonations as you wait for wisdom to be spoken, a unifying way about him as he brings the common thread and the diversity around this table.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this to anyone, as well as he other books of which I have read many--different but equally captivating and enjoyable.

    Lover of life and lover of books! I read/listen to a wide range (many) but my favorite non fiction are self-help and autobiographies.

    Story
    "Fact or Fiction, possible or impossible?"

    The main character in one of Andy Andrews’ earlier and tremendous book (The Traveler’s Gift) is the main character in this book. David Ponder is a successful businessman in his seventies and is struggling with the loss of his wife and best friend when archangel Gabriel appears to David and whisks him away to The Final Summit with many historical leaders where they are tasked with finding the answer to save mankind.

    Initially, when I listened to this book, I did not like it because I approached the reading of the book in a theological review manner. However, knowing that many books have a hidden meaning and oftentimes requires multiple readings, I decided to listen to this book for a second time with an open mind and heart. It is with this second reading that I write this review.

    Similar to other books by Andy Andrews, this book builds upon each chapter and contains tremendous insight, wisdom, hidden humor, and quotable quotes. Many historical leaders are in the book such as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, King David, and Thomas Edison. Every character adds their distinct characteristics and ideas in an effort to assist David in finding the answer to the main question of the book. In two words, “What does humanity need to do, individually and collectively, to restore itself to the pathway toward successful civilization?” This complex yet simple question creates the basis for questions amongst the travelers and their sometimes witty yet provocative answers.

    As with all of Andy Andrew’s books, there are multiple hidden and oftentimes direct challenges presented to the reader and this book is no different. I recommend this book for many reasons especially if the reader enjoys learning practical life’s lessons while learning some historical facts.

    "Loved the story - not the horrible accents"

    This is specifically for the narration. Buy the book anyway. I love his work. Very insightful and witty.

    Andy Andrews does a really nice job narrating his books. However, in this book he tries do English, French and other accents! Awful! Stick to regular narration or keep it to young to old American voices. But hearing Andrews talk in a French girl voice, or the worst British accent is very distracting. I say British because it fades between English, Irish, Scottish and occasionally a pirate accent. I'm from England so maybe it's just harder for me to listen to it.

    Buy it anyway, this is more of a personal call to the Author - Andy! Please! No more accents!
