Publisher's Summary

Three complete novels. Thirty-three hours of survival action. If you're a fan of Robert A. Heinlein, Jean Auel, and S. M. Stirling, you're going to love Jack L Knapp. Thousands of copies have been downloaded. This is survivalism at its best...in an Earth that never knew humans!

Darwin's World: Imagine being transplanted to a virgin planet during the Ice Age with nothing more than a knife and hatchet! Perfect freedom to live or die! Alone, surrounded by saber-tooth cats, dire wolves, giant bears, and predatory humans!

The Trek: The only hope for survival is to find a place that can be defended. Even if it means traveling across Texas in the dead of an ice age winter....

Home: Building new homes and finding food and firewood is only the beginning. A society to the south survives by raiding and slavery. The first captives from the tribe have already been taken....

    "Unique in many ways"

    Usually any book with time travel as the basis for the entire plot is more than enough to get my interest. Here add in everything you ever wanted to know about stone age man, a little sex, some big fight scenes with extinct predators, and a study in building a working society from scratch. What's not to like?

    My only complaint might be it is almost too educational in some ways. I really didn't need to know all that much about making a fire.

    Loved the narration. There were dozens of characters coming and going through the three books contained in this set yet I always knew who was talking.

    "Have never before been so annoyed by narration!"

    It was really hard to tell the quality of the writing/story because the narration drove me crazy. Bad and inconsistent accents, emphasis on all the wrong words, sounded like he was reading to or like a child! I guess the plot was good enough for me to finish it despite my annoyance but barely.

    "Okay until the very end."

    The story was very good until the final scene when the author made it completely 'jump the shark'. I guess he was going for a memorable twist; but, instead was a turn-off that spoiled the whole experience.

    "Narrator Reads Like a 3rd Grader"

    Or a VERY BORING documentary narrator telling us about sedate wildlife. I probably would have stuck it out if the reader wasn't such a snooze fest and made it sound like literature for a ten year old. That being said, the first hour or so would be appropriate for a ten year old. There is a lot to learn about living in an ice age but rather than compare it to S.M.Sterling the previewers should have stuck to Jean Auel as it is more like hers in the sense of exploring how to live more primitively. However Auel's work is much richer in detail and depth of character as well as plot; more well developed and researched.

    "This book was a hard listen"

    I struggled with this series from the very start. The narration was stilted, and the author has a nasty tendancy to over explain almost everything that happens throughout the series. I valiantly continued to the end of the season and feel I should have earned a medal for my patience and forbearance alone
