Publisher's Summary

Astronomer and TV science guy Gevin Rees just landed the interview of a lifetime with the world's most famous physicist. Remarkable, because the eccentric genius is notoriously reclusive, and he's already dead.

What happens next forces Rees to run for his life from not one but two deadly assassins and global powers desperate to bury what he's just uncovered. Mind-blowing technology and solid evidence that would rewrite religious history and challenge the faith of billions.

    "Skeptical, yet pleasantly surprised."

    I love science fiction, ironically Time Travel with secular undertones. I highly recommend this novel.

    "Well written and narrated."

    This was my first book by Lee Burvine. I found it well written and it wove an engaging tale sprinkled with science and history that kept me in the story. The narrator, Seth Andrews was a superb choice. I could listen to that man read a phone book with a voice so smooth.

    "Store brand Dan Brown"

    If you like the Dan Brown (Angels and Demons) mix of fact and fiction I expect you'll like this too. I've heard better stories but this is really good and the action just comes back to back. I do love that there are times in the story where the author could have added another action scene and the characters braced themselves but it passed as just a coincidence like so many experiences we have everyday.

    "Almost satisfying."

    Some parts are spectacular, but other parts are just so so. With more editing this might have turned into a classic...

    "Compelling story"

    Loved the book. Intriguing story. Plenty of action packed suspense. Wonderful narration by Seth Andrews. The addition of science and some obvious truths about religions made it an enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about The Kafir Project?

    The sci-fi concept referenced by the title was merely the McGuffin of a mediocre intrigue plot and not a central part to an actual sci-fi story. It could have just as easily been the secret formula for Coca-Cola that the action revolved around and the story wouldn't have changed at all.


    What was most disappointing about Lee Burvine’s story?

    Aside from missing its opportunity to focus on the myriad of possibilities of what happens when the actual events of religious history are revealed, the story was instead a series of repetitive episodes of the protagonists being pursued, captured and escaping from bad guys.


    What three words best describe Seth Andrews’s performance?

    Seth Andrews was good with the character dialogue but the non-dialogue portions of the story sounded more like the movie commentary for hearing impaired audiences than it did normal story-telling.


    What character would you cut from The Kafir Project?

    The various evil operatives and Burvine's painful digressions into their motivations and psyches. Conspiracy theory elements of the story could have worked better if the threats remained more shadowy. Burvine instead overly detailed his bad guys going so far as to give them back stories and switch parts of the narrative to their point of view. They held up the plot more than advanced it.


    Any additional comments?

    Arthur C Clarke's "The Light of Other Days" is a much better sci-fi novel on this topic. It actually explores the ramifications and reactions to the central sci-fi concept.
