Escape 2 Earth Reviews

5 stars Could Earth Survive a Direct Hit?, December 20, 2011
By Martha A. Cheves (Charlotte, NC)

`Two tall male forms walked from the ship toward them. This was it. It was obvious from their attire that they were not from this world. It was one of the coldest nights of the winter but the thin blue shimmering material worn by the visitors seemed more than adequate to keep them warm. One of the aliens began to speak. His voice was calm and welcoming. "I bid you peace. You have no idea how long we have waited for this moment to arrive." The two aliens bowed slightly under the moonlight while Will and Matt stood motionless and speechless. "Your friend is injured, allow us to help." One of the aliens had dark blue hair, when he moved away from the light it actually looked black. He motioned toward Art. When they didn't respond he picked Art up in both arms and carefully carried him up the small ramp and inside the ship. The other alien was a little shorter with shoulder length reddish brown hair. The shorter man did not speak but motioned for Matt and Will to follow. Once on the ship the door silently slid closed behind them and once again the ship seemed to vanish. Matt and Will were not the only ones amazed at the dramatic arrival of the aliens, the man who had shadowed them since their arrival at the airport was back. This time he watched, with high-powered night vision binoculars, from a clump of trees on the other side of the clearing. The stalker had shed his disguise. He would be much easier for Matt to recognize now. It was Matt's nemesis, Dave.'

Matt and Will were not just best friends, they were also partners in a venture to photograph and hopefully find answers to the mysterious masses of `crop circles' that had plagued the world for years. But, as time passed and the answers with it, Matt decided to split the partnership and take a real job. One that would keep him home where he and his wife Sara could hopefully start a family. But, as predicted by Will, Matt would soon become bored with his position at America's Pulse Magazine. At least that was the case until Matt and Will met Arthur Collins. Art was a computer whiz with CBT Electronics. He and his team were in the process of building a new super computer. Secretly he talked Matt and Will into allowing him to submit the data they had collected over the years into the new computer to see what it might come up with a pattern and therefore answers. The answers calculated by this super computer would change the lives of not just Matt, Will and Art but the whole world. By diagnosing the data, there appeared to be 3 symbols that kept appearing in the printouts. They were 001, 034, AH and 2,012. After many calculations 001 turned out to be San Andreas Fault, 034 - England, and AH - Averbury Hedge. 2,012 was the year which was 8 years into the future. The year Earth would be destroyed.

So, where do the aliens come into play? Are they here to help or to hinder? According to them, they aren't even supposed to be there. If their planet officials found out, they could face death. But can the trio believe what they tell them about the destruction of the world? According to them, Earth cannot be saved but the people can. How? There are millions of people on the planet and no way to get off and even if they could, where would they go?

I've read books that have kept me on the edge of my seat but Escape 2 Earth 2012 had me even holding my breath at times. Why? So many of the happenings are so possible. What are the pyramids really and how were they actually built? What is Stonehenge and who built it? Is it possible that there might be a planet out there that is on course to collide with Earth? Would our government even tell us if there was no way to avoid the collision? Escape 2 Earth 2012 is fiction but it sure makes sense of some of these questions. This is a truly intense book.

5 stars Fascinating!

Escape 2 Earth is a book that resonates as we approach 2012, and, as many fear, the realization of an apocalyptic vision--the destruction of Earth. What if saving humanity was not in the hands of God, but of Man? Or, Men? Matt, Will, and Art are drawn into a cosmic battle for the survival of humans and the Earth that draws on the predictions of history and the technology of the future. Will they succeed in saving their own lives--and those of us all? Read this thrilling page-turner and find out! Highly recommended!

5 stars Earth is near the end,
By William "William B.

This review is from: Escape 2 Earth 2012 (Paperback)

"Escape 2 Earth", by Lawrence Johnson was outstanding, excellent, something you can not put down until you are at the end. In addition, when you get to the end you will wonder what is going to happen next.
The book has many chapters that will keep your mind wondering how will I escape this earth we as humans' call home. I thought that I would not like a sci-fi book but this book is more than that it keeps your attention, with situations that we deal with in everyday life in this dreadful earth we call home. Also if you are looking for an escape from life for a minute than pick up the book it will be the escape you are looking for.

5 stars Better than 2012 the movie.

Escape 2 Earth is a clever 2012 story that held my interest from beginning to end. I was draw in by the originality of the plot. Hidden 2012 messages inside crop circles, a secret alien organization , far off galaxies and massive space ships what more can you ask for. Actually I do wish that the story was a little longer, other than that I think that it was a great book for teens and adults.

4 stars great story
By Gary W. Bowen "Brandy Wayne" (WV USA)

I Loved this book. It is a very well thought out story that is extremely relevant for our times. Mr. Johnson has a firm grasp of his chosen genre and it's penchant for sudden plot shifts and unexpected surprises. I am looking forward to the sequel: Return 2 Earth (I know it is available in e book format but I'm old fashioned and still enjoy the feel of the paper and the anticipation of turning the next page. I will upgrade to an e-reader when they can solve those problems.)
