One of my top five favorite books ever
This is a wonderful book. A thriller, yes, but also a great love story and an adventure as well. But mostly it’s a story of great hope. The notion that humankind is capable of great wonders and miracles when we put ourselves to the task. And the promise that man’s best friend could be beside us in a bold future.
Could not put down! I loved this book so much. Now going to search for another by him, I want to keep reading 😍
