Review: The Final Summit... Andy Andrews

History and suspense combine to make you forget time when you enter The Final Summit.

I could have closed the door, crawled up on my bed, and read this book all night.  I had to discipline myself to read just a chapter or two at a time.  The first chapter was a bit slow for me.  I kept thinking that a businessman would enjoy it.  I changed my mind when the Archangel Gabriel appeared.  The protagonist, David Ponder, is a successful businessman around seventy years old.  The antagonist is time itself embodied in an hourglass.

At the Final Summit, Gabriel poses a question which must be answered correctly before the sands of humanity's time run out.  David Ponder meets with a number of historical figures, both well-known and obscure, to solve the complex problem with just two words.  Two words that will change the course of humanity.

Along the way, Mr. Andrews weaves in some fascinating, little known, historical narrative that I enjoyed immensely.  The story was so well-written, I cannot wait to read his previous book, The Traveler's Gift.

Five Stars!
