Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David V. | 2/7/2014

    " Received this as an ARC from the publisher. The author A.J. Kazinski is a pseudonym for Anders Ronnow Klarlund and Jacob Weinreich. This is an excellent thriller. Some of the "chapters" are only one page long, and yet they still leave you hanging at the end of that one page, just as they do for the longer chapters----I loved it. I like books that make me read faster toward the end. This book had me "speedreading" all the way through. Based on the Jewish legend of 36 righteous people on Earth being the saviors of mankind, this book is hard to put down. And the surprise ending will keep you guessing. One of the best books I've read in many years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Ann | 2/5/2014

    " This was quite simply an EXCELLENT book! I loved the authors's frank style. My jaw was literally sore as I approached the end due to the momentum, I was so tense and on edge. Ha! The "makes you wonder" premise of this book always makes for a good read for me. I highly recommend this for anyone's "to read" list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve Rayner | 1/21/2014

    " I found this book even more intriguing when I found out that the theory of the 36 righteous men is infact belived to be true amongst the Yiddish/Jewish religion. Good Read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Magutheia | 1/20/2014

    " why do these awesome scandinavians (in this case danish) authors have such "esoteric" answers??? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Ramsey | 1/10/2014

    " I really enjoyed the audio version of this book. The narrator had a wonderful voice and the characters certainly came to life. I believe this is a translation but has none of the stilted feeling that translations sometimes have to overcome. The plot is intriguing and for the most part fast-paced, although I would have liked a bit more of an explanation at the end. It was satisfying, but only to a point. That said, I would recommend it to anyone who likes a thriller/mystery with a supernatural or speculative edge. Very enjoyable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/9/2014

    " Complex characters, thrilling plot, and a supernatural twist. Satisfying read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sergio Schreier | 1/9/2014

    " an interesting topic, good and well structured characters, but an end in disagreement with the pace of the story "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 William | 12/12/2013

    " The book started off well with a well researched premise. However, it moved on to endless chases that did nothing to the plot and the ending was anti-climatic with no real conclusion. Best avoided. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lavinia | 12/5/2013

    " This book didn't know whether it was about terrorism, climate control or religion. Very disapointing "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsty Brown | 12/4/2013

    " Interesting idea; great writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 5/30/2013

    " Disappointed in that this is billed as a thriller. Interesting plot and characters but sort of lost steam about 2/3 of the way in. I finished it and am happy I didn't purchase it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucia | 4/12/2013

    " Loved this. It was almost divincicode-esc. Would love to see this as a movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 4/11/2013

    " This was an interesting premise for a thriller, written in a Dan Brown kind of way. Character development was pretty good and the plot was interesting. I thought it fell down at the end a bit, but won't say why because it's a spoiler. Let's just say I never understood that part of the Bible anyway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Quinnwilliam99 | 3/22/2013

    " Started out well but just ended up a pile of drivel much like the The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo seris. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niv | 2/1/2013

    " Mystery and suspense that keeps you glued to the book, it would make a great movie, to be honest I was not familiar with the author/s, so I was a bit hesitant, but it is a great story I'm glad to have read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katharina | 1/10/2013

    " More of a 2.5, I'm feeling generous right now but may change the rating later. Decent but ultimately not very memorable thriller, though it does have interesting and not-completely-flat characters. Liked the first half a lot better than the second half, to be honest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mirjam | 7/20/2012

    " Recommended to me by a friend. Quite an interesting read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina So many books so little time! | 6/6/2012

    " Subtle racism and sexism! Mildly insulting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie Boicheff | 5/21/2012

    " I thought the first half of this book was really exciting and well written. I couldn't put it down during that time. Then it seemed the author had a hard time wrapping it up. It was still a good read but not one of my favorites. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Neil Plakcy | 2/16/2012

    " Had to give up on this one. Too much jumping around to different points of view, and too many of what seemed to be extraneous details. I just couldn't maintain my interest. The final straw was the jump into what appeared to be the villain's point of view, and attempt to make him sympathetic. "
