Mayan December Kindle Edition
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Mayan December is a time travel novel in which people slip (intentionally or unintentionally) hundreds of years into the past and back.
What if the world had ended in Dec. 2012? After all, that was the end of a Mayan bactun (part of the Mayan calendar counting system). This book is set in the weeks before the end of the bactun when both present day Mexico and ancient Mexico was preparing to celebrate the solstice and welcome a new year (in the past but who knows about the present ?).
What I liked best about this book is that an expert on ancient Mayan culture suddenly and totally unexpectedly gets to see firsthand what the Mayan culture looked like in its prime. I also liked the fact that the Mayans from the past were not that different from present day humans. In other words, people are people, even if they live in times hundreds of years apart.
This was the first book I had read by Brenda Cooper herself. (I had previously read Building Harlequin's Moon which she had co-written with established sf author Larry Niven.) Now I can't wait to go read more of Ms. Cooper's books!
