Read from March 18 to 21, 2010

Fantastic premise with ties to a lot of the stuff I like today, such as the new Battlestar Galactica and Lost. The premise is that everyone who has ever lived on Earth is resurrected on a (distant?) planet next to an everlasting River. It's a survival story for a few pages, before taking off into an adventure to solve the mysteries -- why was humanity resurrected, and by whom, and for what purpose? Many intriguing theories are proposed and promised to be answered (I'd hope) by series end.

It's an "older" book but I'm glad written in a style that wasn't too lyrical or clouded in metaphor, as lots of older books tend to be. (I like my fiction straight-forward and clear).

Will gladly pick up the next books in the series after this strong start.
