Book Description

Jack Engelhard (“Indecent Proposal) has produced another winner (literally) by presenting us with a suspenseful moral dilemma featuring Julian Rothschild, a gambler with supernatural powers…and what was the secret to Julian’s powers…was it his sublime artistry with dice…was it magic or trickery or prophecy that made him so unbeatable…was it mysticism that made him a hero to his fans and a villain to the casino bosses who wanted him dead and tested him as no gambler had been tested before or since…and what did Julian Rothschild find in the Sinai Desert that turned his game into a form of prayer…Who Is Julian Rothschild!

4.0 out of 5 stars Engelhard is the Prince of the Written Page... April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could not stop reading this little masterpiece. The set-up was well paced and draws the reader in with slow deliberation expertly mixed with sudden bursts of power. By the climax, I was actually holding my breath in anticipation - like the "boys" watching a "shooter" at work. Yes, I learned gambling lingo from "the Prince" as well.

Much like in "Indecent Proposal", Engelhard challenges his readers to wonder what they would do if forced into the situation the Prince of Dice is in. We all want to be "good", but is it at any price? And is good an objective value, even? And does the Bible really address all of this? How?

The writing is tight, effective and evocative of the characters, situations, and locations. So, at first, "Prince" is easy to read. But trust me, re-read it for the richest Engelhard experience.

In this novel Engelhard seriously and humbly reached to God Himself. It felt to me that this book touched God and He responded. Maybe all readers won't comprehend that success, but I feel certain each reader will feel it.

The feelings I had while reading this book were precisely what I seek. I looked forward to the next time I could read another segment. I wanted to have more time more often to continue reading and resented anything causing me to retire too late to have an hour or more for reading. Yet I wanted to slow the reading because I wanted to have more of it left every time a lull allowed reading.

The writing style in this novel was subtly different from Engelhard's other books which are so artfully composed a fellow author can't help but pause to admire the sheen of the syntax. In this book, the characters and story take over so completely there is no perceivable writing style. There is just the story and the characters.

Maybe that's a feat beyond style, though I relish style, too.

Whatever way Engelhard puts together his novels, they work. They are enthralling enlightening reads exuding literary class with the cleanest writing style, or with the story taking all.

Turning to concepts and content in PRINCE OF DICE, I'll refer to something Engelhard wrote in an essay about men not knowing what women want. I might add that women don't know what they want, either. And I might ask whether men know what they want, or whether they even think they know what they want.

If a person knows what he wants and gets it, there is an experience of satisfaction which doesn't dissolve with the next breath.

At least that's my test of a person knowing what he wants.

More About the Author

Novelist Jack Engelhard wrote the international bestseller "Indecent Proposal" that was translated into more than 22 languages and turned into a Paramount motion picture starring Robert Redford and Demi Moore. His latest novel, "The Girls of Cincinnati," a suspenseful love story, is now available in paperback on Amazon (along with five star reviews). Engelhard's themes have been called "powerfully seductive" by The New York Times and his writing style has been acclaimed as "vivid, cool and muscular" by The Philadelphia Inquirer. Writer/critic Michael Foster has cited Engelhard's writing as embracing "the sparseness of Hemingway but the moral intensity of I.B. Singer." An award-winning memoirist and journalist, Engelhard's internationally syndicated commentaries (blogs) can be found on Amazon, his personal website and elsewhere.
