The Final Summit by Andy Andrews
About the book-
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.
Many years have passed since David Ponder discovered the Seven Decisions during a divine journey through time. Now 74 years old, Ponder has lost the one thing that mattered to him most: his wife, Ellen. Despite his personal and professional success, he now sits alone at the top of his 55-story high-rise contemplating the unthinkable, just as he did 28 years ago.
However, just as things are looking their darkest, Ponder is informed through divine channels that he is needed now more than ever. Together, with the help of hundreds of his fellow Travelers, from Winston Churchill to George Washington Carver to Joan of Arc, he must work to discover the one solution that will save humanity. Time is running out, and the final summit of Travelers must work quickly to avoid dire consequences.
The Final Summit, By Andy Andrews, proved to be both inspirational and intriguing. With Appearances by Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Arc, and many other historical figures, the author managed to implement several important life-lessons in the main character's search for the answer that would save humanity from complete and total destruction. This story not only kept me perched at the end of my seat with anticipation but it also caught my attention with the seemingly unthinkable events. There is also a reader's guide at the end of the book, to help you analyze what you have read. Andy Andrews is simply an amazing author. He paints a paints the picture perfectly, and made me feel as if I was really their, seeing what the characters saw, and hearing what they were hearing... like I was in the book to.
Andrews has a way with words and proves it with this great book. I would totally recommend this book to anyone who likes books that make you, think about things, as opposed to a book that did not keep you mentally involved.
