Global Trek to the Future is a story of the aftermath of an incredible expedition atop Mount Everest. A wealthy Scottish climber assembles different people from different races into a group called S4 to solve international dilemmas and bring about a new world dynamic and transformation. During their descent from Mount Everest, a super bolide meteorite, leaving a trail of fire and dust, explodes nearby, knocking them unconscious. A search and rescue party is sent to rescue them. Will the rescue team find them on time? Is there more to this expedition than meets the eye?

Generally, this book lacked suspense, thrills, or a twisted plot, which should be a bit common with this genre. The author did a poor job of story narration. After reading the prologue and a few chapters, I concluded that the writer was more adept at writing thoughts or penning down philosophical books than storytelling. The storytelling was so poor that I had to check previous pages and reread many sentences to grasp the painted scenarios. This book was more of an educational and philosophical piece than an entertainment piece for readers. Towards the conclusion, I could not grasp the lesson or the complete picture of the intended theme of the story. Stewart J. Allen, CMSgt, did a poor job on that vital aspect of his book.

The author's writing style makes the book very incomprehensible. The consistent use of technical words and intricate writing style contributed to the poor assimilation of the story's plot. The plot of Global Trek to the Future lacked adequate creativity and narration skills. The way the writer relayed information in this piece was complex and unhelpful at times. There were no exciting elements in this story. I lost interest severally because of the lack of exciting factors. The dialogue was sometimes long, tedious, and not properly written, making this book further worse. There was a total absence of humor in the dialogues between characters.

The character development was one of the worst elements of this book. It was generally poor, with no backstory or clear description of characters. The characters just popped into the book with no clear definition or imagination of those characters being rendered to the readers. Most of them were uninteresting and possessed no exciting traits. The pace of the story was not adequately established. In the first chapter, Becky and her fellow climbers' ascent to the mountain was not detailed relative to their subsequent descent. That part of the story was unnecessarily bulky, making the story's progression dull and slow.

The editing was poorly done, as I encountered many errors. Since there was nothing to like, I'd give Global Trek to the Future a rating of 1 out of 4 stars. I wouldn't recommend the book to anyone in its current state.

A well detailed book with a good story line attracts me so I don't think this book is for me.
This is a very honest review.

I can literally feel the honesty flowing out in this review. Thanks for saving me my time i wouldn't like to read a book with shallow characters and complex words that i have to check up in the dictionary every time.

I'm sorry for you that this was so poorly written. It sounds like you had a really tough time reading it. I'm glad you did, though. It will save my time.
