I was fascinated by the style, enormous and rich information. You will be certain the author had actually travelled and studied history , culture and scriptures. It is rather a scientific research review than a novel. I dug on wikipedia a lot - and still!.
Definitely a 5 star recommendation.
The beginning of the book is a touch too reminiscent of Indiana Jones, but since I'm a fan of those films, I went with it, and even enjoyed the comparison. However, I wish the author would have used a different name for the professor. "Tomes" was just too close to "Jones" and it felt kind of commercial and cheapened the richness of the plot. However, this was short-lived and after a few pages I was swept away and thoroughly involved in the story.
The characters all felt real to me and I enjoyed reading about their convoluted lives. The plot, the narrative, the dialogue were all genuine mixes of history and theology. Entertainment with theology is a great way to learn. However, far from truth we will never know, but it does make for great entertainment. Like its predecessor, The DaVinci Code, the author uses old scriptures or old rumors to expound upon beliefs that challenge the modern mainstream church today, especially Catholicism.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are used as tools of historical truth which contradicts many teachings and the author elaborates upon that premise.
I found it entertaining. I found the writing quality superb and interesting. However, I would not clutch to the book as fact or historical documentation. It is what it is, entertainment.
I recommend the book for anyone interested in the dead Sea Scrolls and The Da Vinci Coe as well as anyone who loves a good mystery.
