    I hear it is really good. Is it and what do you think? A good read? Personally I do not believe to own any novels. He is one popular author. Tell me if it's a good read and buy? His books get lots of reviews on amazon.

    I haven't read his latest book. Which book are you asking about?

    I have only read his first three novels--The Last Jihad, The Last Days, and Ezekiel Option. They are political thriller, cloak and dagger, spy action type novels and succeed in being engrossing and interesting reads. There are better authors in this genre, however.

    If you have not read this sort of genre, I think Rosenberg's books would be a good introduction to them.

    I'm curious...why do you say, "I do not believe to own any novels"?

    I do not have any novels of any type with the exception of the Hobbit.

    OK, so you believe you only have one novel?

    OR

    You believe it is wrong to own novels?

    Which is it?

    I have read everything Joel has written save the latest, and I highly recommend each and every one.
    Granted this is a personal taste, but IMHO he is one of, if not THE, best author I have read in years.
    Murphy's law now declares that I will NOT like his newest. :smilewinkgrin:

    Same tip I have given you in the past: provide an amazon link so we can check it out.

    This time, you didn't even give the title. You can't review a book when you don't identify what it is!

    If I need to provide a link then you have not read it. I am looking for people that have read it.

    You might get a better response if you have this thread moved to the books/publications forum. This forum is for theology and debate.

    Just finished this book this afternoon. Murphy must have been reading my posts, and decided to throw me a curve; IOW, I did enjoy the book. (Post #5)

    Only complaint, and it could have just been my feelings at the time, is that it was beginning to drag at a point late in the novel, and I was ready for the story to move on. Thankfully the very next chapter "cut to the chase", and I enjoyed the remainder.

    Definitely recommend reading if you haven't by this time.
