More About the Author

Jack Eason lived in New Zealand for forty-two years until 2000 when he returned to his birthplace in England. As far as he is concerned he will always consider himself to be a Kiwi. After military service in the 1960's, he travelled the world, visiting exotic lands and making many friends. Now in his mid-sixties he is content to write and travel via the Internet. Besides writing novels and short stories, he contributes to his own blog "Have We Had Help?" Some of his short stories and numerous articles appear in the No: 1 online E-zine "Angie's DIARY". His literary interests include science fiction, history, both ancient and modern, and humorous tales like those written by his fellow writer Derek Haines, such as "HAL". He lives in semi-retirement in his home town surrounded by his favourite books, ranging from historical fact to science fiction. His literary icons are J.R.R Tolkien, George Orwell, Arthur C Clarke and John Wyndham.

The author's passion and interesting ideas are evident, but so is his lack of writing experience. There are enough grammatical errors to make one wince. but the author's lack of sophistication in his writing skills made this, for me, unreadable.

The author has a great imagination and has come up with a concept that really piqued my interest. The execution, however, didn't live up to my expectations for a published novel and it felt more like an early draft. Character development and story progression seemed very hollow, and there were so many spelling and grammatical errors (nothing to do with US vs. UK English) that it became distracting.

Another poster mentioned that the book read like something written by a high school student, and I have to agree. At the same time, I believe that many novels start out this way -- a rough draft of a concept, with detail and depth filled in as the author's creative energy is fed by the developing story.

I have to believe that some of the raving reviews here are bogus. Mr. Eason has great ideas, he's just got to work on polish...and probably get a better editor.

I liked it but is wasn't a steller book. Kept my interest to the end but wish it was a little more technology oriented.

The plot is a good one but there were too many aspects of the story that were just not believable, even for sci fi. For one, as each new person is introduced to the quest, he or she signs on without questioning how preposterous the quest is - the search for ancient technology to save the world led by an alien. Modes of travel became a bit rustic as the story went on too. It starts with flying and driving from place to place and devolves to buying ancient freighters that need 2 weeks of work to get them going and hikes across dangerous places. Then at the very end we find out that the alien who has been helping the rescue team has been using an underground transportation system -- why didn't she bring the team through that system? Also there were many areas in the story where the author jumped ahead by stating that such and such happened rather than continuing in story-telling style. This made it a bit choppy.

All in all, not a bad read but could have been better.

This mixture of science fiction and science fact was a little too predictable for me, with certain characters somewhat type cast and generalised. The sex was completely unnecessary and wasn't warranted in the story line, it just made me go 'what?'

An unique variation on the end of the world, but I was not that happy with the ending and it was a bit confusing too. Overall I enjoyed the book, but it rambled a little bit and get it on the Kindle, don't pay for a hard-copy.

At first I thought I had another 5 star book, some disappointment set in at about a third of the way through the book. The fact that each site our hero, Nick, visited was so much like the ones that came before (with very few facts, archialogical Information, character buildup, or more story line twists) left me almost wanting to give up on the book,THE SEVENTH AGE. However the real life situation Concerning the "Mayan Calendar" and the "End of the world as we know it" on December 21, 2012, and my interest in what & how & the tale Mr. Eason was spinning would hold, made me finish it. I am glad I did! But I hope & expect better on Jack Eason's next book.f

I thought this book was lots of fun, however I kept wanting more information. Back ground information. I felt that the story just could have been filled in more.
