The book does not confuse the avid booklover of thrillers. It entices us into its realm with tact and respect for the reader. Prentis' women glowed in a particularly caring masculine light, equally well crafted from the petulant adolescent through the mature professional. He demonstrated a clear understanding of the ravages experienced by a strong grandmother, struggling with the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Particularly well introduced teasers, leading provocatively to coming parts in the series cemented my respect for the author. Abraham's Bones delivers on all counts as a thriller and propels me to want to read the next part. What seems to bother some of the critics only betrays their lack of understanding of or appreciation for the thriller genre.
It sets the stage for a sequel that will be even bigger than the first novel, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the writer can bring about the second time around!
Joe Prentis has crafted a thrilling mix of international politics, science, religion, history and espionage and brought it all to life with a cast of characters whose lives are entwined by rich emotional content. Even though the plot is complicated and full of brilliant intrigue, it shares the spotlight equally with the ongoing saga of the characters' lives, most of which have lifelong personal histories with each other. This blend of an action-filled plot and finely-drawn characterization should make this book a winner with both genders.
I also had to wonder while I was reading just how many jobs Joe Prentis has worked in his life, because he writes about politicians, reporters, archeologists, diplomats and even terrorists as though he has been one himself. Every detail--from the architecture in the Vatican right down to the fashions worn by the women--is flawlessly researched and perfectly described. I could see each scene as clearly as though it were playing on a movie screen. (HOLLYWOOD, take note!)
Also there were a lot of typos and grammatical errors.
