Publisher's Summary

There was a place once where man, the perfect creation, lived and thrived as a near-perfect creature. Blessed by the "gods" with advanced knowledge of science, engineering, astronomy, mathematics, and medicine, this early culture lived an idyllic life on a remote volcanic island in the Eastern Atlantic. There they enjoyed centuries' long lives and were protected by their isolation from pestilence and were nourished by food raised on rich volcanic soil. These Atlanteans became great seafaring explorers who shared their gifts of knowledge with more primitive cultures ,advancing societies that would evolve into the great centers of knowledge, philosophy, and science that would become Egypt, Rome, Persia, Greece, and China.

Legend has it that the island they called "Atlantis" was destroyed in a sudden cataclysmic volcanic explosion that totally exterminated all traces of that great culture. The truth be known, the eruption and explosion that wiped the island from history came slowly with seismic warnings and the people evacuated their leaders and knowledge on a great armada of ships which dispersed around the world to settle and mix with other cultures, creating advanced healthier societies.

One group traveled West to a previously unexplored continent that one day would be called North America. There for hundreds of years, they inbred with native tribes of hunter gatherers which then evolved into the great American Indian tribes.

Modern researchers, aware of Biblical stories about patriarchal longevity that spanned multiple centuries to millennia, began researching modern pockets of extreme centurion longevity, seek a possible genetic reason, a longevity gene to create a superhuman. One group of Chinese scientists begin to pursue that knowledge with malevolent, evil intent.

It’s ok….

Narrator is grandfatherly with constant pauses. It almost sounded robotic. I quit listening once then finished bcuz I had bought the book. Story was an interesting concept but then predictable throughout.

The story is interesting, but...

the narration is just, weird. I don't know if the dialog is stilted in writing, or if it's the voice actor, but it's really tough to listen to. I love the premise of the story, but I don't think I can continue. It's not possible for me to get to know the characters, because it is delivered in Shattner-like pauses, followed by awkward emphasis' on words. I don't have a problem when narrators don't do "voices", but the accents come across as trippy stereo-types, and slip into other characters, they all end up sounding like they just ran up 10 flights of stairs, and the conversations sound almost as if they have been translated from another language, they aren't natural. There is lots of descriptions of what the characters are eating...I don't know. I'm kind of thinking I need to read this one, because I would really like to finish it. I don't enjoy being critical of other people's creative work, and that is not what I am trying to do, it's just an honest heads up.
