This book started out with history, action, and promises of an exciting read. However, the story fell short towards the middle when the author kept switching back and forth from the present situation to situations in past generations. For me, it was difficult keeping up with the names and it became confusing trying to decipher the generational lineages. After struggling through the story, it became a painful chore to get to the end, even though it was interspersed with some exciting moments. After all the accolades, I have to admit that I was disappointed.

This is the first review I have written for anything, a book or otherwise. I enjoyed reading this book and found it to be fascinating, especially the historical background, most of which I am not overly familiar with, but am now motivated to read more about. The story is involved and intriguing and kept my interest. At times, I felt that the prose was likely more beautiful, and lyrical in its original Hebrew, than it was able to be translated into the English, but understanding that, it did not take away from the rich historical backdrop, the events that occurred, and the characters themselves. It does flip back and forth from the present time of the book to historical periods from times past, which can be confusing if you are not focusing and paying attention, but I found the stories from the past to be fascinating and was glad that they were included. The book will not answer all your questions by the end, and you will be left waiting for the sequel to find out what happens to everyone. But that is okay, I can wait.

. The Silence of the Chariot Descenders far exceeded my expectations. The published synopsis does not begin to prepare the reader for what lies within the pages that follow. The history paralleled with the present helped make the characters real and believable. Uneducated about Jewish history I found the history chapters a fascinating prelude to the action that occurred in the present. Having traveled in Israel the images of the country and its people was breath taking and brought back wonderful memories of my time there. The description of events was just enough to satisfy the imagination without being offensive or vague. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.
I received this book free for an honest review

The Silence of the Chariot Descenders is one of a few books that I can relate to. It is evident that Nissim, the author, and I have much in common. Having been born and raised in Egypt and having known how Jews are looked upon in that part of the world, the story had a special effect on me. The author has succeeded in depicting somewhat realities of a life from a philosophical and a historical perspective while inserting personal history in it. Thank you Nissim for the intellectual opportunity.

An Excellant Book!!! The writing is often understated. This works well to de-sensationalize some of the events. I did want some of the events in the book to be slightly expanded, but, all told, it worked very well. The descriptions of the battles and war events were accurate enough and vivid enough to make me think the author may have had some battle experience. The end of the story was left hanging a bit, but, then, I do see why it was. Again, an excellant read. A sort of cross between Star Wars Jedi training and Indiana Jones.

It was amazing for me to read a story of adventures while discover the true facts of Jewish history and philosophy.

The book belong to the rare category of books which are interesting both for young people and for serious readers.

Book's language is short, concrete and attractive. A lot of actions. So it is for uninterrupted reading. Like good Hollywood film.

I am not big on writing reviews. This is probably my first & so I give credit where credit is due.

The Silence of the Chariot Descenders was not only an exciting read, but well thought out & easy to follow between timelines. I was hooked at page one. This is a must read!

This is the first book I am reading by Nissim Ben David and must say, I am now an avid fan and gave it five stars. Why? In the first chapter of this 340-page Kindle book (19 chapters), Nissim has managed to teach me what the title of his book means. I was torn between sorrow and fear as I was not sure what was coming my way when I read his opening sentence and was totally surprised what did. Losing a family member at any age is devastating, but even more so when you are only age 3 and not quite sure what is going on. Nissim has managed to mix the Hebrew/Jewish way of life while telling us what it was like to grow up without a mother, the secrecy surrounding a certain family member’s death and the usual questions a child has, but are not to be answered due to the culture. A close bond develops between this boy and his caretaker and Nissim shares in detail how this relationship develops and then the loss he felt when she was gone. This little boy does go on with life, and everyone can learn something from his journey – I know I did. It is like a coming of age journey, with lessons learn’t along the way and we have been invited to join. If you ever want to learn about the Hebrew/Jewish way of life in a simple but interesting way, read this book. If you also love a good love story that is action packed with danger, military and bravery – this is the book for you. You will not be able to put this book down until you have read it from cover to cover. Exciting and different and I cannot wait to read more books from this intelligent and exciting author. I would recommend this book for adults only, but some sections would be okay for a child to read. Nothing wrong with learning about another culture, but avoiding the sections that are for grownups only. In ending, you have to be an avid history buff to enjoy this book as it is extremely long but well documented. Hats off to Nissim – well done!!!

This book is already sold in Israel at the largest book store (Steimatsky). Many people have already read it in hebrew.
