One of my favorites
I love these characters.
Excellent blend of research and storytelling. Follow the descendants of several families from the Ice Age to 1985 in an entertaining and fact filled tale.
This is not Michener...
It is overall ok and worth your time - you can just skip over the longwinded and boring parts where the characters fall flat or where there are simply too many characters introduced that end up not having to do anything with the later story anyway.
Will definitely stay away from the other books though.
