E likely to appeal to those who wish to have a fast stimulating read without reuiring any profound insights into the modern political worldDespite the fortunate lack f academia in The Temple Mount Code Brokaw is the pseudonym Damn Love of a Midwest academic and college educator His interests as can so clearly be seen in the Lourds series are history human accomplishment and archaeology One just rather wishes that he would take a little time delving into the psychef his major characters but then perhaps his writing is not nly intended to reach a wide ranging audience but is not nly intended to reach a wide ranging audience but to act as a well earned timeout from the tediousness that comes from being Mafia Dynasty: The Rise and Fall of the Gambino Crime Family onef the that comes from being Hoot onef the Brokaw s third book is as good as the previous two with as much action and excitement as the Primo maggio others Creating almost two separate stories into thene book a historical dig in China before arriving in the Holy Lands Brokaw presents so much information in such an interesting fashion that the reader cannot help but be amazed Obvious research both f the archeological finds and the linguistic nuances helps the book and its characters leap from the page Some f the religious details leaves the reader wondering where the facts end and the fiction begins as well as pondering the secrets rarely challenged from the pulpit Shallow Pond on Sunday mornings While usually pushing the limitsf acceptable Christian doctrine this book examines the Muslim key religious story and documents with the zealots in Iran the purification police prepared to punish those who stir the pot While the main character does see himself as a James Bond ladies man this is somewhat easily ignored to get to the root SearleÃ†s Philosophy And Chinese Philosophy: Constructive Engagement (Philosophy Of History And Culture) of the story While zipping from allver and coming Sahara Sconosciuto oh so close to destruction Brokaw weaves a story that will have its readers flipping pages well into the night in hopesf knowing what comes next for this academic go adventurerHow might ne properly classify Charles Brokaw Perhaps a cross between Dan Brown s academic character Robert Langdon and Steve Berry s antiuities sleuth Cotton Malone with a hint f Sam Bourne andor Tom Knox with their biblical inuiry He does stand alone though able to shake Il confine del silenzio off the shadow that all these men bring to the literary mix The story is uite multi facetted and involves so many aspectsf a good thriller intrigue mystery politics lust romance and last second salvation Brokaw knows how to pen a great book and could surely keep the reader enticed for many novels to come Perhaps a little lighter قراصنة وأباطرة : الإرهاب الدولي في العالم الحقيقي on the Casanova attitudef the main character and we ll be fineMany kudos Mr Brokaw Keep it up and dazzle readers with many adventures Couldn t finish it After 150 pages I still couldn t get into it First ff the beginning I find boring The main character is involved with some discovery that really has nothing to do with the main plot The story progresses very slowly at first it seems to go n forever There are way too many references to the main character previous discovery which took place in the first book that became annoying Thomas Lourds also isn t a love able character to me he seems narcissistic and arrogant definitely no Robert Langdon I couldn t even finish this Il pianeta delle scimmie one and I don t remember the last time I couldn t finish a book It was so dulldamn.
