    Indiana Jones meets The Da Vinci Code in an old Egyptian synagogue - the amazing story of one of the most important discoveries in modern religious scholarship. In 1897, Rabbi Solomon Schechter of Cambridge University stepped into the attic of the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Cairo, Egypt, and there found the largest treasure trove of medieval and early manuscripts ever discovered.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What about Mark Glickman’s performance did you like?

    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.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.

    Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like the series you will really like this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.

    The prevailing image of European Jews during the Holocaust is one of helpless victims. But in fact, many Jews struggled against the terrors of the Third Reich. This is the riveting history of one such group: a forest community numbering more than 1,200 that carried out the largest armed rescue operation of Jews by Jews in World War II.

    Matthew says: "Brillaint scholarship; hard read"
    "Excellent Historically"
    Overall

    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.
