This is a story I shall be saving until I can savour it. I started reading but My trouble is I read too fast and don’t want to miss anything, as I did with the previous two in this series (which I enjoyed immensely, and re-read a few times). I truly enjoy Beck’s writing and follow him avidly. Always have a great time escaping to another time and place and wish I could be more actively involved than just reading. Now-having finally read this book, and while I was interested in how the story would progress, l must say the ending was slightly disappointing. I was wondering just when and how Red’s space capsule would factor into the story, yet it didn’t. Then the ending was finished all too quickly. The ‘re-evolutions’, which were of such importance at the beginning of the book, were just off-handedly dismissed. A poor way to finish this trilogy yet it won’t keep me from being on th lookout for more of Greig Beck’s work. Enjoy his writing very much, and these few complaints are only minor, to me at least, in the scheme of his authorship.
Oh, I loved the premise of this book - what would happen if someone went back in time and altered the evolution of the plants, animals and people of our planet? Creepily realistic.
This is the third book in the Primordia series and as a person who has read all three, I would highly recommend reading them in order, although you could read this book as a standalone as well.
Ben is quite happily settled in his marriage but he needs to return to the jungle plateau once again, to stop Andy from altering the present day, or there might not be anything left to recognise. Naturally enough, he needs to take some serious muscle power with him, and there is not even a guarantee that Andy is going to still be alive, but the chance needs to be taken.
As usual, Greig Beck has woven a clever tale of fact and fiction and paints a picture of how things might have been, if the past had been just a little different than it was. Fascinating.
