The fast pace and interesting characters as well as the subject matter.
Other Joel C Rosenberg novels, Left Behind Series, Dan Brown Novels.
Hard to pick one. The opener is very interesting as the Main Character's parents assist an American to escape Iran in the 80's.
No but books don't generally effect me in this way. It was very thought provoking as well as a page turner. I was hooked until it finished.
It ranks #1 along with The Tehran Initiave (#2) and Damascus Countdown.(#3)
Yes, It did! Joel's writing style is that of creativity and fluidity. Someone who knows what he's talking about it. And of events that could and are happening now as we speak. I love Joel's books!
Number one fact of audiobook success and thats the NARRATOR! He brought the very esssence to Joel's writing and captured every emotion and authenticity of the Middle Eastern culture. Brought to life! His is a great vocal talent and I really appreciated that. Made these books all the more intense and enjoyable to listen to on my long commute to and from work everyday! Im sad its over:(
Off the top of my head right now i would have to say the intricate details of CIA operatives. Going under cover and risking their lives for the good of all "good" mankind. I love spy novels especially when there's a bit of truth to the plot and background of these kinds of stories. I believe all 3 of these books are a huge possibility. If anyone follows Joel's website as well as his Epicenter conferences and his Joshua Fund foundation...they will get these books and understand they are not altogether fiction but rather a foretelling of what lies ahead if we dont wake up and demand justice for our allies in Israel not to mention US as well as...the United States.
I suppose from how Book #3 (Damascus Countdown) ended there wont be a Book #4 in the works. But I truly felt those characters he created and I miss them already. hopefully he brings them back for another possible scenario later:)
Good character development and plot. Timely. Exciting and fast paced. I like the different viewpoints presented.
Absolutely! This follows the actual events around the new movie, Argo, which I've not seen yet. The reader's accents were amazing and the pace kept the story moving. My husband and I didn't want to stop driving while listening on a long trip. He weaves the historical events while developing the characters, making them very believable with a Christian perspective.
It is classified as historical fiction, but it reminds me of listening to No Easy Day, minus the colorful language.
The author has a great understanding of the the Middle East, Islam and Christianity, and the religious and political influences in the cultures, revealing the challenges that apply to current events.
I was educated into oblivion but have overcome it and am having a wonderful life
The plot did keep me wondering and anticipating. I look forward to a sequel... please
Absolutely would recommend this book. Total escapism with current world issues making it more meaningful.
Narration was excellent. Story kept your interest. And very current!
He made every word exciting and meaningful.
Rosenberg really sucked me in on this one....had trouble getting anything done because I had to listen to this book. This could easily be occurring right now. I can't imagine what we will do if something like this happens with Obama in charge.
After finishing I immediately downloaded The Tehran Initiative. Hope it is just as captivating.
For its genre, this was Rosenberg at his best! I appreciated the background and feel I have a greater understanding of Iranian society than before. The author's usage of Islamic scripture helped me to understand just how controlling religion can be, and especially in a society that is already controlled from top to bottom.
Christopher Lane's narration was well-suited for the story. His ability with middle eastern accents made character separation easy to follow and enjoyable.
Yes, if they like spy stories they would love this book even though it is a terrorist story. Christians will begin to understand some of the affairs taking place in the Middle East. I finished this book and immediately had to have the second book in the series, "The Tehran Initiative." It was exciting also. I am now waiting for the third book. My only disappointment is that I have to wait months for this to be published and then I don't know how long before it is on Audible Books.
Christopher Lane was great. He gave distint voices to the various players and also instilled excitement, terror, and relief through his reading. I do hope he will be reading the third book in this series.
