Joe Colsco boarded a flight from San Francisco to Chicago to attend a national chemistry meeting. He would never set foot on Earth again. On planet Anyar, Joe is found unconscious on a beach of a large island inhabited by humans where the level of technology is similar to Earth circa 1700. He awakes amid strangers speaking an unintelligible language and struggles to accept losing his previous life and finding a place in a society with different customs, needing a way to support himself and not knowing a single soul.

Starts off rather mundane then consistently gets better. You don't really know what is going to happen next and it drags you in, you end up really wanting to know about the characters.
The story arc is believeab!e and sympathetically carried out by the narrator. Well done.

If you're thinking of listening to this then you must have either read the books or listened to them!
This is far better than the previous book. it presents new characters and completes the circle for other's.
The story arch expands and gives greast depth. it is a long book but when you finish this you simply want more, you need to know what happens to the characters.
A good story resd very well indeed.
well done.
