Have you ever started a book that was second in a series and quickly realized that you really needed to read book the first book? Well, that’s how I kind of felt reading the Final Summit.
Now, I was able to get through the book with help of well written story telling, but I was unable to really connect to David Ponder and his situation. The beginning of the book actually has you connect somewhat with some workers of David Ponder, but than you suddenly follow David and his storyline without ever really seeing why the people in the beginning of the book were there.
Andy Andrews does a wonderful job of using some of histories best characters and minds to enhance a truly interesting storyline. The Final Summit takes you on a search with David Ponder and a cast of historical figures, who must uncover the two words that will help save humanity.
At some points during the book I felt the like the story dragged on a little, but in the end, I was impressed by Andy Andrews talent to weave a strange but interesting story together.
The goal/answer of the story is good, yet all in all it was a little difficult to follow along with.
From Thomas Nelson books:
David Ponder is back. This time the fate of mankind is in his hands.
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 consists of 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 encountered David Ponder in The Traveler’s Gift. Now, in The Final Summit, 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.
