Overview
Almanecer is the story of Calvin Dunn, a man who lost everything he had been hard-wired to think he needed in life. Desperate for a new direction, he aligns himself with a scientist who might just have the answer. Calvin agrees to become a test subject for experiments which could benefit all of humanity, but a chain of unlikely mishaps & tragedies leave Calvin unconscious, cryogenically frozen in a capsule - with the entire world around him completely unaware of it. Calvin awakens in the year 2032, in a world more advanced than anything he could have ever imagined. Again finding himself drifting aimlessly in a world that had evolved without him, he discovers an incredible secret that could utterly change mankind forever...
Description
The book takes place, for the most part, in the future and so it kind of qualifies as a science fiction novel by default. However, fun things like flying cars, skyways, and the cellular implants (that’s right, implants) that have replaced cell phones are just the icing on the cake. The story centers around a man, Calvin Dunn, who lost it all in life – his home, his wife, his father – and is on the brink of self-destruction when he agrees to take part in a unique science experiment, where he will be frozen for twelve years with a sort of organic antifreeze. Things go awry and Calvin wakes up twenty-two years later, in a world that has changed more rapidly and profoundly than he could have ever imagined. How, you ask? Calvin finds himself in a world nearly devoid of organized religion. A nuclear blast detonated in Jerusalem comes to be viewed by the world as an ultimate debunking of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, as the holy land all three religions centers around has now become a radioactive wasteland. The ever-faithful Calvin finds this hard to accept, and comes to feel like an outcast in the future, left behind by the world’s advancements and innovations, uncertain of his own abilities to catch up. Is that all? Certainly not. For the second time in his life, Calvin finds himself at the brink of self-destruction, when he discovers that he may be the one who holds the key to an incredible secret that affects every single human being on Earth.
