I started questioning my own religion and my own knowledge and the gaps in my knowledge. I like that. I like something that makes me really think about what I believe. What seems right to me based on the information available?
Every book, relic, historical figure, etc was something I was able to find more information about on the web. I found some of that information particularly resonant for my own faith research. For that I am grateful.
Why not 5 stars? Like the other Hockney books (his are not alone in this problem) they are amateurishly published, there are some grammatical problems that caused me to need to slow down to figure out what the author actually meant. I don't mind a spelling problem here and there, but I find it annoying to have to stop and re-read a few times to figure out how to place a phrase or sentence back together with the right word. It didn't ruin the story at all, but I found it irritating at times.
My first attempt at reading the book was unsuccessful as I'm not really a fiction buff, but after reading different explanations about the book I gave it a more thorough read & even took some notes on some of the subject matter.
Apparently, the book is written in a type of code; as to the nature of this code, & whether the effect of this code is maybe on the subconscious mind is uncertain (maybe I just didn't 'get it?') But I did have a strange mixture of emotions after having read the book, more so after the first attempt, even though I had read the book a bit too quickly (mostly a feeling about the futility of romantic love on planet earth).
What really impressed me about the book after the second, more careful read is all the history about the secret society known as The Ancient Order of the Illuminati & other associated topics such as the Knights Templar, The spear of Destiny, The Ark of the Covenant ect. (Indiana Jones fans will maybe get a kick out of reading the book!?)
Have a read, & notice what your emotions do after having read, maybe YOU, will 'get it?!'
Wow, what great information. The plot weaves fictitious events, with possible historical premises, unveiled in a way to draw more attention to certain major historical movements, as well an introduction into a very interesting philosophical movement, of which I had no prior knowledge of.
This book is for thinkers, especially those who question authority, and mainstream knowledge, and anyone who likes a good conspiracy novel.
This book brings to attention the major role of various power brokers on the shaping of our society and our world and the continuing evolution of their power and identity, through colorful (fiction?) story telling. I'm trying hard not to give away too much as the book was surprisingly a very good read, undoubtedly the best and first of the three I have read so far.
Overall, this book has opened up my mind to new perspectives, ones I never could have considered on my own.
Their website has provided the most enlightening reading list I have ever encountered (well, not really a list, but scattered over the website... ahem!). I am so thankful, because prior to this I was getting a little depressed with my education- learning a bunch of things that I'm going to completely forget in 10 years? No holistic thinking or overarching ideas in education? Just fact after fact, and course after course, of hoop jumping and dog tricks. I wasn't getting smarter, I was turning into a short term memorization machine! How pathetic. Knowledge is so much more than this. I had to take a break from school and now I'm preparing myself mentally for the mind-numbing regimentation I am about to return to in reapplying. It was in fact a professor who got me questioning everything, leading to this information.
I highly recommend this book, and the associated website. The information is out there.
