Exodus by Andreas Christensen Book Summary
A high tech space opera set in a dystopian future society where humanity faces its greatest challenge ever.
Exodus is the first installment of the Exodus Trilogy.
When mankind faces extinction, how can anyone survive?
In 2072, Earth faces the ultimate extinction event. In an America turned authoritarian, a race against time begins. To send a starship to a distant planet, where the remains of humanity can survive. Only a small number will be chosen for this final endeavor to save mankind from extinction, and among the contenders only the most resourceful will have a chance.
But while the government wants to choose loyal subjects in order to create another version of the society they have engineered, there are those who secretly conspire to let the starfarers choose their own destiny, free from the bonds of their mother world.
As mankind on Earth faces its final blow, the selected few set course for Aurora, more than 40 light years away!
Follow Tina Hammer, scramjet pilot and officer, Kenneth Taylor, Harvard professor and alienated by the nation he once held so dear, Maria Solis, daughter to one of the richest men in the world, a girl who would never have been chosen, except for her dad's money, on their various paths toward the greatest adventure in human history.

Exodus (Andreas Christensen) Book Reviews
Wonderful Space Opera !!!!!Pure story, no page fillers!!! A breath of fresh air in a time of author people pleasing. A page turner I couldn’t put down (in fact I didn’t until I was finished)..RingOfWordsScore: 5/5

ExodusExodus grabbed my attention, and wouldn't let go. I sincerely hope that it is made into a television miniseries. A two hour movie would not do it justice. My thanks to the author for creating this "mental movie" of a disaster that brings about the end of a corrupt, authoritarian government and system on earth - much like we now have the beginnings of in reality in the United States after the election of 2016 - and gives the human species a chance at a new beginning..968tagScore: 5/5

Read this book!With a topic geared towards the end of the world as we know it, there is a lot of room for descriptions of unspeakable violence. However, that is not the case in this book. The horrors are acknowledged but not described in gory detail. I felt the heartache, the struggle for survival and the unknown that the characters were experiencing. Christensen handles the the story with care, compassion and an overwhelming feeling of hope. Hope for good triumphing over evil, hope for a future. The book ends with a glimpse into the challenges that the characters will face, but it is not a cliffhanger. I felt my time and emotions invested in the book were well worth it and and I can't wait to purchase and read more in the series..5littlesScore: 5/5

Nice surpriseWhen I started reading this book I thought “I’ll give it a try, I’ll decide to drop it or keep on reading in the first few pages” To my surprise (since this is the first time I read this author), I kept on reading straight thru till the end. And now I want to read all the other books by this writer. Good job!!! Thanks for taking the time to write this story and the others I’m about to read..Orlando'sReviewsScore: 5/5
Page turnerVery easy to read page turner that kept me interested the whole way through. I wouldn't call it literature but it is entertaining and intelligent. Also realistic for a dystopian America. In 2017 We are all too close to fascist tyranny so it is easy to imagine. Read it..HamanitaScore: 5/5
AmazingEven though the exposition was a bit slow, the book has a sort of suspense that keeps you reading. It has a well established story line that makes you curious how it ends. You begin to really like some characters, and I loved how the scientific references/use is mostly correct. It feels like a proper sci-fi..Misfit McnorrisScore: 5/5
Interesting Take on Armageddon GenreI have never been all that fond of apocalypse stories. You might say that, for me, the theme hit far too close to home as a current resident of Earth. But I found this to be an interesting take on the genre, mainly because of the attempt at forming a valid scientific underpinning for the escape vehicle. That appealed to the aerospace engineer in me. I would argue that the science behind the escape likely could have been employed to avoid Armageddon in the first place. But then the characters would have been stuck on a dystopian planet with an authoritarian political system. The exodus leaves the future wide open to imagination. It was strange that the author did not include carrying frozen embryos for genetic diversity or how Earth animals might have been transported along with the people. Just seeds..King MelScore: 4/5

What Sci Fi Should BeAfter finding so much to love from writers like David Drake, Erik Flint, Chris Bunch, David Weber and more, it seems as if I’ve had to endure more post apocalyptic, dystopian fantasies than I care to shake a stick at. No where in the morass of second rate writing did I see the richness of character, surprise of plot twist, or imagination brought to life regarding new worlds and the means to get there. In Exodus, Andreas Christiansen has revived my hope that there will be more books, more characters, and more worlds worth reading about. Rather than slogging thru technical details for dozens of pages, or trying to play jr. engineer and solve all the minute problems of the voyage to another world, the author sticks to the best parts - the story line, characters, and the settings that make any book worth reading in the first place..CoachCoryScore: 5/5

Let’s just leaveI found this story very plausible as the World we know comes down to the end. Scientific discoveries and new technologies right thru to the end. Very easy read with an undercurrent of quietly emergent freedom on the line for the new World but with a possible 1 party hierarchy planned. Will this plan stay?? Or change ??.Ziggyjo113Score: 5/5

Afraid of intimacyThis author is afraid to get inside a character's head for more than a sentence. We are left watching characters as if through binoculars go through some contrived challenges that are just too remote to be engaging. And the challenges are passed without much excitement. Poor story line and no character development. Not even any good dialogue. I can't recommend this author, she needs to take some writing lessons..DrDragonryderScore: 1/5
