Although this is actually a history book, it reads like a mystery. It unlocks a huge piece of Jewish history I had no idea about. It also reveals a very different relationship between Jews & Muslim in the past, that is especially intersting in light of the constant conflict in the middle these days. I recommend it to anyone interested in the history of Judaism but also of the middle east.
Clear, easy to listen to & wonderful pronunciation of all the many names & places. He made what might have been hard to read easy to follow. I wish he had spoken a little slower. With such complex information it somestimes needs a little more time to grasp evey bit of information.
I couldn't get past the second chapter. After ever sentence I could hear the reader take a raspy, noisey breath. I was so distracting that I can't rate the book - but I will avoid the reader.
If you like the series you will really like this book.
That it showed sides of the characters we have not seen much before and that I never really guessed what happened. Tess.' research for this one was superb.
I really enjoyed listening to this book but kept thinking, if I was reading it I would have been so frustrated with the names & places I would have put it down. Never-the-less, it is an inspiring store the demonstrates the strength and courage that we are capable of under the right circumstances.
