Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David W. | 2/18/2014

    " I have not read the Davinci Code, but I imagine it would be similar. My classmate's husband is the author of this book, which is how I found out about it. The level of detail and history were astonishing to me. All in all, I think it is definitely worth the time to read this book. It will likely bee something that you can't put down once you start reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Livia | 2/10/2014

    " THE LAST EMBER is so much better than THE DAVINCI CODE. The story is plausible and the action keeps to a steady pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Blackstone | 2/9/2014

    " An interesting take on an interesting subject. Once I got going, I couldn't stop reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 2/6/2014

    " Very good - very fast paced. Loved the ancient histories woven into modern day religious tensions. Immediately looked for other works by this author, as yet finding none. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DWGibb | 1/22/2014

    " In search of a two-thousand-year-old artifact sought by empires through the ages. An international scavenger hunt beneath the colosseum in Rome and Jerusalem's Temple Mount to find the original Tabernacle Menorah, complete with its eternal flame, or last ember. Interesting peek at a clandestine competition between Judism, Christianity and Islam to preserve their own antiquities and destroy those of the other two to undermine their veracity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Boyd | 1/18/2014

    " This book was a fun and mysterious trip to ancient Rome then to Jerusalem's Temple Mount and back again in search of an ancient treasure from the ancient temple at Jerusalem. You go with the heroes and the villains in the story on a trip through the lowest levels of the ancient colosseum in Rome through mysterious libraries for clues to this ancient mystery left by the ancient historian, Josephus. I thoroughly enjoyed it and best of all, it had a great ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 1/17/2014

    " This book was a bit of a slow read for me, which is surprising. I still give it 4 stars because it was a really good plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 1/2/2014

    " Fans of Dan Brown will like this book. It had the same type of race through historical sites as the Davinci Code. It was never dull and there were very few swear words, always a plus for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lark | 1/1/2014

    " I struggled to get through this book. It was obvious the author had done a great deal of research, but it seemed to get in the way of the narrative. The author wanted this to be his Da Vinci Code, but it wasn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 11/17/2013

    " I liked this book a lot. I thought it was well written and kept my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 6/19/2013

    " Pretty good. Fast, historical archeology stuff. Kind of like Stev Berry or James Rollins "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vasya | 6/10/2013

    " Just a bad fanfic of The Da Vinci Code. Some details were OK, but nothing too special. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tami | 5/29/2013

    " Excellent! Kept me guessing all the way to the end. The main characters were great - I almost wish it was going to be a series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margery | 10/19/2012

    " Four stars for a super-fast paced Grail quest adventure. Hidden messages in Rome's Colosseum and Jerusalem's Temple Mount have a lawyer and a preservationist racing back and forth. He(the lawyer) sleeps only on the plane flights! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickie | 9/14/2012

    " I'm a sucker for books that have archeological aspects to modern plot twists. Usually these are fun reads, but nothing deep or significant, and that applies here. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob Bauer | 5/18/2012

    " plodding,unrealistic situations "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 T.W. Fendley | 5/17/2012

    " I would like to give this a 3.5 because I did like it. It started a little slow but picked up and had an unexpected ending. I liked the archeology, spanning from Rome to Jerusalem. Primarily it was an action book, and a pretty good fit for my mood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette Grabowski | 3/23/2012

    " Could not put this book down! I like entertaining the thought that there is still an ember - but of course now it dwells within us. that It will be a re read for me sometime in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy Hollister | 10/20/2011

    " recommended by Candi. I loved this book because I just returned from a trip to Europe which finished in Rome. I also went to the American Academy of Rome for lunch and author Daniel Levin was a fellow there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Horner | 8/7/2011

    " This was a wonderful suspenseful story line. There were many twists and turns, that were not expected. Loved the history of Rome and different cultural societies I was not aware of. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diah | 6/1/2011

    " menegangkan dari awal hingga akhir jadi agak susah buat berhenti membacanya... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 5/14/2011

    " It's an overwritten, non-thrilling thriller. It reminded me of a book I read once that was horrible in the summer, but much more interesting when I got back into school and was reading only textbooks. Maybe if I had less choice in what I was reading, it would be interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 5/6/2011

    " It doesn't flow - I feel like I'm in school taking a history class. I like the subject and it is suspensful. But, the way Jonathan and Chandler and Emili are constantly "teaching" each other about history that they all obviously should know already is a "fake" kind of device to inform the reader. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy | 4/9/2011

    " I bought this at the library. It was a Reader's Choice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 3/16/2011

    " Ummm. Loved the history. Missing a little... je ne sais quoi in the soul of the character department. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 2/16/2011

    " An interesting take on an interesting subject. Once I got going, I couldn't stop reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 2/7/2011

    " really interesting subject matter (lost menorah fr Titus, religious history) and plot; stilted writing with unrealistic dialogue "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Livia | 12/21/2010

    " THE LAST EMBER is so much better than THE DAVINCI CODE. The story is plausible and the action keeps to a steady pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 12/17/2010

    " This book was recommended to me by my friends Ruth and Bernie. And, it turned out to be a very good action/intrigue book. Particularly if you have an interest in Jerusalem, Rome....as that is where the lost artifact and all the action takes place. It would make a great movie!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 12/7/2010

    " Very Dan Brown-esque. Interesting bits of history and religion, lots of action. I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandyjerb | 12/6/2010

    " I thought it was very fun and made me want to learn more about Jerusalem and the culture. "
