I read Dustin Thomason’s book “12-21” last year, finishing it on 12/21/2012. Since the story deals with an apocalyptic disaster caused by an ancient civilization, I’d wanted to see if I could finish it before the pivotal date last year.
It was a fun book, but it wasn’t spectacular. I liked Thomason’s theory concerning viruses, but think it could have been presented in a plot line that would have been absolutely stunning.
When I read the Author’s Notes and found that his theories were completely plausible, I was disappointed that he didn’t construct a more medically-complex thriller.
