    Abbey of Ruac, rural France: A medieval script is discovered hidden behind an antique bookcase. Badly damaged, it is sent to Paris for restoration, and there literary historian Hugo Pineau begins to read the startling 14th-century text. Within its pages lies a fanciful tale of a painted cave and the secrets it contains - and a rudimentary map showing its position close to the abbey. Intrigued, Hugo enlists the help of archaeologist Luc Simard and the two men go exploring.

    I am writing this review to comment on the reader- performer- narrator.
    I almost could not tolerate listening to this book due to the performance. The over the top french pronunciation of the french characters names and towns and so forth annoyed me to the point of distraction. I do not speak french and I appreciate the inclusion of a bit of an accent, but here it was so thick and seemingly overdone that I still have no idea what the names of a few of the characters were. Almost returned the book because of this.

    The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah — known as the Twelfth Imam — has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Right Wing Christians


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joel C. Rosenberg again?

    no


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    The book was well read, I enjoyed his performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I kept expecting the heavy handed, endlessly repeated Christian message to make some sense and work into the plot in some way but it did not. It was just proselytizing, and so pointless.
