Although the storyline picked up towards the end I have only one word for this book . . . b-o-r-i-n-g !!!
This series is an excellent read and I would recommend this to all readers. I have read all three books and it is an eye opener.
I give!! I am on page193 and can not waste any more of my life trying to keep the story line straight. Although,I feel that this book, so far could be written in today setting,the author takes too long to tell the tale.
Didn't like at all - religious views I've heard before. Everyone's own god is the only god....
Is this book "the twelfth imam" one 488 pages book? The ending sounds too sudden and I was thinking whether there is a second volume to the book.
Thought the book was a great action thriller with a realistic scenario. There are overt Christian messages in the book - but they fit with and are necessary to the plot line. Anyone who has been witnessed to by a Christian understands the Gospel is, by definition, overt. The Iran situation and the Twelver Shia Islam elements were well researched and fascinating. I never thought of the possibility that the Twelfth Imam could be connected to the End Times.
This novel is very similar to Tehran Initiative; while this novel sets up the action for Tehran Initiative the Tehran Initiative completes this story. I found that this novel does get bogged down at times with thoughts, feelings, explanations, synopsis of articles. Perhaps with some editing these two titles, Twelfth Imam and Tehran Initiative, could have been amalgamated or published as 2 shorter novels. Story is still topical.
A colleague recommended this story to me because I mentioned that I liked Raymond Khoury. It's a well-written story and pretty action-packed. However, I could not get past the overt Christian overtones. I've heard subtler messages from Pentacostal preachers! I'll read the next one (Tehran Initiative) just because the story is entertaining, but pick this one up with a grain of salt.
Great book.. read it several months ago but only now returning to review. Had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. My only complaint is the end in that it sets itself up for a follow up. Hoping there is one..
This was the first book I have read by Rosenberg and I enjoyed it. I was a little concerned in the beginning I would have a hard time following the story with all the middle eastern cities/names but that wasn't the case at all!
