    A true-life thriller about the journey of one of the world's most precious manuscripts - the 10th-century annotated Hebrew Bible known as the Aleppo Codex - from its hiding place in an ancient Syrian synagogue to the newly founded Israel. Using his research, including documents that have been secret for 50 years and interviews with key players, AP correspondent Friedman tells a story of political upheaval, international intrigue, charged courtroom battles, obsession, and subterfuge.

    What did you love best about The Aleppo Codex?

    The book was in some ways like a good detective novel.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I learned that an "official" story can be an incorrect one.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    He was always a sure narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was an interesting but not a moving book.


    Any additional comments?

    I might have been better if there had been a more definitive conclusion, but it is not the author's fault that the mystery at the heart of the book remained something of a mystery at the end. The book does end with only circumstantial evidence, though.
