    Gomez Jurado has done an amazing amount of serious research for this book giving the reader uite a history lesson to go along with the constant adventure and suspensetruly from start to finsih He'll take you back in time through the retelling of the story of how the Ark came to be buried in the desert through the Nazi hunt for Jews and one very dispicable Nazi doctor The Butcher of Spiegelgrund to post 9 11 into the chilling minds of terrorists The short chapters take you back and forth to the various times and places events are unfolding including coinciding suspenseful situations in the United States even taking into account the time difference in the various parts of the world And he brings it all together completeing the circle wonderfully It's that great kind of thriller that keeps you guessingnot knowing who to trust or what disaster lurks around the cornerOtero and Fowler are characters to cheer for and you just want to warn them of impending dangerof which there is uite a bit The Author puts you right in the middle of the scene with his vivd descriptions He also includes on the inside cover pages what looks like an aerial map of the area the group is excavating with inset as well as placements of the camp tentstrucks etc I really liked that You will also find in the back a list of the players which was very helpful early on there were over twenty people on the expedition plus those working back in the states but after a while you will know all the characters pretty well Published originally in Spain it didn't seem like anything was lost in translation excellent

    So just finishing up The Moses Expedition by Juan Gomez Jurado all I could think of was 'Wow that went fast' This is a uick read one best left for a rainy afternoon From beginning to end you are kept at the edge of your seat expecting fast turns and a speedy endingThe story is about a secret expedition to find the Ark of the Covenant There are many parties involved for different reasons The Indiana Jones series comes to mind while reading this Aside from the tough translation From what I heard this was originally written in Spanish and translated to English to the confusing pieces of dialogue especially confusing when than 2 characters are in conversation as no detail is given to who is doing the conversing this book will keep you thinking and turning pages faster than you expectI give The Moses Expedition 5 our of 5 stars for its charismatic storyline and attention to detail for each character By the end you will be saying to yourself 'Wow that went fast' and probably asking 'What happens next?'

    New to the work of Juan Gomez Jurado I wasn’t certain what to expect I couldn’t have anticipated the fast paced nonstop action or gut wrenching thrill that he masterfully packaged into just a few hundred pages With its high octane start the swell of anxiety caused me to ignore my surroundings as I happily sank my teeth into the search with “The Moses Expedition”Father Anthony Fowler is on the hunt; pursuing a one of a kind priceless object from the past and he is very good at his job The gold filigree candle—stolen from a Jewish family many years before—is oddly not desired for its precious metal but instead its interior key to unlocking the location of the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Commandments Fowler is unaware that this discovery for the Catholic Church will lead him on an expedition straight into the heart and heat of the Jordanian desert under the assumed control of eccentric billionaire Raymond Kayn Surrounded by miles of sand the dig—already treacherous—takes on a new level of terror as the bodies begin to pile up and Fowler’s old fashioned sense of duty and personal mission are at odds with the terrorists who will stop at nothing to win the final prize Leaping across the globe Gomez Jurado can keep pace with any contemporary thriller writer “The Moses Expedition” is an unuestionable success Reviewed by Suspense Magazine wwwsuspensemagazinecom

    I was talking to a volunteer at the library the other day and when he found out that I'd been to Jerusalem he recommended this book to me I took it home that night and started reading it At first I was so so about the book and uestioned the reviews that said things like Can't put it down etc because I could have easily put it down at that point However I didn't have much I needed to do that night so I kept reading and the farther I got into the book the wrapped up in it I got until it was 1230 at night and I just HAD to finish it So a slow start butyeah it makes up for it laterI did find it fascinating and historically pretty accurate Almost to the end of the book the main character who was a newspaper reporter was reflecting back on working for a newspaper in September 2000 when Ariel Sharon went up onto the Temple Mount a move that started the Second Intifada I found that part especially fascinating because I was in Jerusalem when that happened and it was damn scary One of the few times in my life when I truly thought I was going to die So to see it mentioned so casually in the book was a bit surrealSo I'm not sure if I enjoyed it as much as I did because I had been to most of the places mentioned in the book or because the book was truly well written but either way I loved reading it I especially enjoyed the Hebrew characters scattered throughout the book That was just cool

    Ugh How does stuff like this get published these days? And why do I finish them?I picked this up because it was featured in the Goodreads First Readers program I didn't win and the premise sounded interesting Indiana Jones meets the DaVinci Code in a search for the lost Ark of the CovenantWhile the premise held promise the execution failed utterly Our protagonist is a Spanish reporter whose career is on the skids and who is brought in to cover the ultra secret search for the Ark Sound unrealistic? It is Why is she really there? Because the Vatican wanted one of its warrior priests on this mission and the only way to get him to go was to include the Spanish chick Why? Because the priest saved her life once and now he's responsible for her and if she goes he has to go Huh? Even the potential of this sub plot was utterly unexercisedAnyway the warrior priest was potentially compelling but he fails to contribute to the story after the fifth chapter or so The Spanish chick who's a lesbian and who falls in love with a Mossad agent which was gratuitous and had nothing to do with rest of the plot keeps falling down and needing to be rescued The rest of the characters involve a preening academic a xenophobic industrial magnate with a mysterious illness a comic book fat boy computer security specialist and a comic book Muslim terrorist called the Syringe If it had a point I'd think it was satireAnyway none of the characters' motivations were obvious There was no tension in the book I did turn the pages as uickly as I could but only because I wanted to get this damn thing out of my read ueue and I was too stubborn to put it downAnd to save all of you the pain of reading this travesty spoilers yes they do find the Ark but the warrior priest blows it up in a moment of seeming self sacrifice In the epilogue we see him staggering out of the cave clutching the one remaining piece of the Ten Commandments that says Thou Shalt Not Kill How much hammy can this get? I'm reminded of Alan Folsom's absolutely wretched The Day After Tomorrow which ends with Hitler's head in a hat boxLook I don't hate many books My reviews usually tend to look for the positive But in this case the gap between the potential for this story and its execution was so wide that I'm still falling a month later

    This book was a true page turner I just couldn't put it down The story follows the expedition to discover the Ark of the Covenant The characters were so real I felt like I could actually see them Andrea Otero the smart mouth reporter who just wouldn't give up; Father Anthony Fowler the priest with ties to the Holy Alliance and the CIA; Raymond Kayn the reclusive billionaire that bankrolls the trip; and Dr Harel who is so much than meets the eye just to name a few This one kept me guessing all the way to the end This story was anything but predictable I highly recommend this one

    Enjoyable end of summer read First book I've won through Goodreads' book giveaway it spurred me on to enter againI had read God's Spy with bookclub which was a hands down hit so I went into this book with great expectations They were almost but not uite met Plot was engaging and kept me guessing and I always like the return of a leading character so was glad to see Father Fowler I didn't much care for Andrea Otero as the lead character; too many times her behavior left me wondering What were you thinking?? Seems to me someone in her position would be a little savvy But that aside this was a fun read and I definitely recommend it

  9. Debbie Debbie says:
