Synopsis:

A classic novel from the mind of the storyteller who captures the imagination of readers from around the world, and across two generations The final exam for Dr. Matson’s Advanced Survival class was meant to be just that: only a test. But something has gone terribly wrong…and now Rod Walker and his fellow students are stranded somewhere unknown in the universe, beyond contact with Earth, at the other end of a tunnel in the sky. Stripped of all comforts, hoping for apassage home that may never appear, the castaways must band together or perish. For Rod and his fellow survivors, this is one test where failure is not an option…

Oh, gosh, where do I start? I originally read this book in May of 2012…which, I know, isn’t a very big “throwback”, but no matter how many books I’ve read since then (124, to be exact) I’ve never been able to forget about this one. I don’t typically read Science Fiction, but this book…! Was absolutely amazing. The plot, the characters, the setting… It was a very intriguing and exciting book. I loved every second of it. :)

People interested in books such as The Girl Who Owned a City, will love this novel!
