Rosenberg's second novel, The Last Days, opens with the death of Yasser Arafat and an American president pressing for peace in the Middle East...but it was published 13 months before the actual death of Yasser Arafat.
Now comes The Ezekiel Option, an explosive new political thriller that literally feels ripped from tomorrow's headlines. With Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat out of the way, a dazzling era of security and prosperity seems to have come to the Middle East. With the help of an American president trying to spread freedom and democracy, the Israelis and the Palestinians have signed a historic peace agreement. Violence is down. Their economies are booming.
But a new evil looms on the horizon. A dictator is rising in Russia. Iran is feverishly building nuclear weapons. A new Axis of Evil is emerging, led by Moscow and Tehran. And Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy - two senior White House advisors - find themselves facing the most chilling question of their lives: Is the world rushing to the brink of an apocalypse prophesied more than 2,500 years ago?

"The book is better written and more complex than Left Behind, to which it will inevitably be compared." (Publishers Weekly)
I have now listened to the entire series. I really liked the stories, and was amazed at how well he called some of the happenings in his book in parallel with what is happening right now with the middle east and our economy. I have been recommending this series to all of my friends and family. It is less preachy than the left behind series, and i appreciated all of his information he included in his story about what part of the Bible he was using as a basis for his fictional story.
I think this book is great. I love the whole series. It is well written and I loved the way it was read. It makes you feel like you are there and viewing the whole thing. I would recommend this to all of my friends.
Excellent read (listen), kept us guessing at each turn. We found it well researched, enjoyable and thought provoking! Great job and I would recommed this book to all my friends.
At times during a pivitol point in the book the narrator rushed the book almost to where you couldn't undstand what he was saying.
The plot held my attention.
This is an excellent series, especially if the prominent role of Biblical prophecy doesn't offend you. This book was as good as any in the series.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, very good suspense and action and he seems to know the scriptures well. I am so looking forward to his other books in this series :-)
disappointment... why push religion
i wish it had a better storyline.
this book did not meet the expectation
I do enjoy the stories once I get pulled in after the first quarter of the book. I'm fine with the Christian perspective, but I think there is just too much "telling" and not enough "showing". Not a whole lot of nuance in the writing. Mr. Rosenberg should give his readers a little more credit.
I like Joel's works but they are becoming formulaic. Don't get me wrong, I love the destruction of bad guys.
