    Bob Medak, AllBooks Reviews

    From the introduction: ¿Modern researchers in archeology (and to some extent, anthropology) are currently trapped in a self-imposed dilemma as they attempt to explain or rationalize the growing number of `out-of-place artifacts¿ (collectively known as 00PARTS) that are constantly being discovered¿both in archeological digs and in ancient writings.¿ This is an interesting opening for me to read forward to see where we go from here. The character, Peleg, is to begin a twelve year journey of discovery to find trade routes or other people with an assortment of shipmates and friends. What will he discover about trade routes and people? How will it affect him? Will all of them make it back to home port? This story will answer these questions. One can see ramifications of dogma and its effect on people when the dogma is challenged. Jon is a Network Administrator and Web Developer for a medical company. He and his wife re-side in Baltimore, Maryland. Besides his work, he is also a concert pianist, and avid chess player, and studies jiu-jitsu. He lectures in area schools on Information Theory and Intelligent design. Although a work of fiction, there are many things that are taken from history and myth that are handled in a fictional manner in this book. If you have ever read or studied history or the Bible, you will note references to Sumerian, and slight references to Greek, and Egyptian mythology set in a fictional tale that is well written. I found this book to be an interesting historical fiction with some compelling references to many of the world cultures and religious philosophies we adopt today. I found references to biblical events without being preachy or presenting anything other than the event in the storyline. For me, although a good read, I can only give it a slightly above average read for most readers.
