I really tried to get into this, but couldn't. Too much jumping around and too may "dream sequences". I prefer a storyline that's more straight forward. This is one of those "so many books, so little time" things. Onward to something else. ( )

I tried. I was reading "200 Years of Dover-Foxcroft History" by Louis Stevens. I will finish that book. Could not finish this one. It was too boring/painful to read. I was also reading Sunshine by Robin McKinley, and had the same opinion. Maybe reading three books at one time is just something I do not have the skill to do. 830 members; 3.53 average rating; 10/5/2017 ( )

Mostly I liked this story. It brings back a lot of my anthropology lessons from school. Classic historical american history here. What bothered me was some of the formatting of the book. There was a lot of time skips which made it flow jarringly for me instead of smoothly. I also couldn't invest in the characters as much as I wanted to because they were a little too 2-dimensional. But I have hope that the following books will show some improvement in these areas. And there are MANY more books after this one. ;) If you love historical fiction, this could be a good read for you.

This book is a fantastic story about the first humans who came from Asia to America and how they have to struggle for survival from other tribes, the climate change and feuds in their own tribe. One man to guide his tribe to a better place and will he succeed? ( )
