Alten's best in a long line of great reads. Fast paced and thrilling with enough plot twists to keep you guessing the entire ride. Mixing science fiction and science fact so seamlessly you are filled with a need to research for yourself to find out what is real today and what is a prediction of what may come. The characters are deep and believable enough that you can't help to empathize with them. A strong blend of 2001:A Space Odyssey with H.G. Wells "The Time Machine". An instant classic which ranks right up there with these works of Sci-Fi legend. A must read.

Not his best

I have been reading Mr. Alten's books from the beginning. Love his style and ability to tell a story, except for The Omega Project. I just did not enjoy the story....I feel the idea was great, but the execution of the story left me frustrated and confused.

    Steve Alten has written another SciFi classic!  This story has large scale characters, settings, themes and story telli
    ng!  Heroes such as Robert Ike Eisenbraun who must traverse the world of the future after being frozen for 12 
    million years. (Or is he merely dreaming?)  He is guided by ABE, a computer chip in his brain giving Ike instant access to valuable information.  He is helped by Oscar, a land dwelling cephalopod of the future.  They must
    battle tsunami waves, steep climbs, futuristic reptiles, the AI super computer GOLEM, transhuman hybrids and st
    rrange creatures to survive and set the world back to normal.   We are taken from post Great Die Off earth to fro
    zen Antarctica to the Oceanus Submersable Sphere to future earthnwith giant redwood forests and beach front
    shores pounded by massive tidal waves.  Themes of love, hate, revenge, forgiveness, loyalty and sacrifice are
     intergral parts of the story.  I highly recommend reading this book, then immeadiately reading it again!

    Steve Alten writes science fiction based in facts,thus making this a possible truth in the next fifty to one hundred years.
