Book Description

"Sex with fervent strangers, however, still seemed novel, so Gabor continued to review the troops outside the fence. There was Maria Rosário of Ponte de Lima; Catarina, who had lush lips and lost eyes; Joana; Mariana; Felisberta; Fátima, who walked on her knees and with hands clasped in prayer into his bedroom; Dulce from Guimarães; Katja from a far land, who in the light of the street lamp had stuck out her tongue, and through the tip of it there was fixed a tiny silver crucifix. Ângela was let through the gate, and Marta, and Raquel and her mother Celestina, who wore bifocals, and Susana from Angola, who was tall and strong and had breath like cinnamon."

The above excerpt will leave no doubt that, although situated in the same thematic territory as The Da Vinci Code, Mr. Millennium has very little in common with Dan Brown's novel.

Gabor Esterhazy is Mr. MILLENNIUM, a bright, young but troubled manual laborer who is taken under the very shady wing of a secret society. Their claim: that he is descended from Jesus Christ by way of Hungarian aristocracy. Surely the resulting fame, power, money and adulation will bring him the peace he needs? Or will he find, too late, that he is merely a puppet, placed on a false throne to satisfy the insidious aims of those who claim to care for him?

Follow Gabor Esterhazy as he goes determinedly off the rails, and his journey toward happiness becomes a dark and comic shambles of lust, deceit and mortal danger.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent thought provoking read January 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Mr. Millennium provides a penetrating look into the dark side of the human condition. We find ourselves asking, at times, how we would react if put into a similar position. The depravity of Gabor's actions, his misuse of the so-called "present" and "opportunity" awarded him at first, not only disgusts us, but angers us. Possibly because we can identify with a part of him, however small.

I found the book very well written. We are carried along convincingly, meeting well constructed and unique characters who add significantly both to the pace and meaning of the book. The author's detailed descriptions do not bog us down, as descriptions in many books are wont to do, but carry us effortlessly along, adding more meat and flavour to the book.

The one thing that surprises me about this book is that I am the first person to review it. This is the first book by Morgan Nyberg that I have read and I am sure to read more. Morgan is not only an expert story teller, but he is also a master of prose. I strongly recommend this book to all who want a really good thought provoking read.
