Voyage of the Millennium is a book science fiction lovers would enjoy! This is not a book of gory science fiction, but a book of how technology might, in the future, change and rule the world. The book is suitable for young adult readers, but there are curse words throughout.
The subject of the book revolves around time travel and how technology could evolve and control all of life. The scientists set out on a mission with the hope of traveling through time with seedlings, embryos, and more to bring life back to a world that a group of scientists suspect will be destroyed by pollution and abuses by mankind.
The descriptive detail of technological advances and the surroundings paint a picture in the reader's mind. The story line often makes the reader wonder what is going to happen and wanting to read more.
The lesson in this story is the importance of taking care of our natural surroundings and living simple, healthy lives for the health of future generations and the earth.

Voyage of the Millennium is a must read book for teachers and students of Science and science fiction. This book is an answer to the question, "What could possibly be done, with the knowledge we now have, to preserve the Earth and mankind, in the case of an extreme and unavoidable extinction event?"
This question has been in the news and television programs a lot lately. This is a response to those fears and religious myths, and even the Georgia Guide-stones!
The new authors have approached the question in line with current knowledge, leaving out the futuristic warp drives at 2, 3, or 4 times the speed of light and the fantasy of wormholes.
Instead of stretching the story into multiple volumes, by filling in a lot of social personal entanglements, they stay closer to the scientific possibilities and accomplishments. This fact makes the book a great inspiration for developing scientific aspiration and developing questions for purposes of debate!
I have read many books and short stories in the genre of Science Fiction and Mystery, and became good at predicting many authors, including Hitchcock and Heinlein. I especially enjoyed the unexpected turns the authors incorporated in Voyage of the Millennium.
