A story about this — 5 years ago
I honestly picked up this book because the cover (faux leather with abstract gold detailing) caught my eye while I was walking through the library. There wasn’t even a blurb on the side and no dust jacket, but I liked the first page, soo…. Usually, this doesn’t work out very well for me, but this time it was actually worth it.
The premise is the most interesting part of the experience (the whole historical population of the world is reborn as naked young adults (and a few kids) upon an alien landscape), but the book as a whole isn’t too bad. Unfortunately, it is the first in a five book series that, according to the expert reviews at Amazon, gets worse as it goes on. The local library doesn’t even have any of the other books, so I may or may not read the rest.
Still, it was pretty good for being something I picked up with no idea of the contents. Nice way to spend a dreary Saturday morning. I enjoyed it.
