Lange nicht mehr so einen Bloedsinn gelesen! Gut, bis zum Schluss durchgehalten, weil ich wissen wollte wie's ausgeht - aber Ufos und duenne Maennchen ... Das Ganze hat keinen Tiefgang und ist nur streckenweise spannend. Detailliert vorgestellte Charaktere spielen dann nur eine kurze Nebenrolle waehrend die Hauptpersonen nur grob gezeichnet bleiben. Auch Sonderangebote sind halt nicht immer den Preis wert!
In the finest 'Dan-Brown-write-my-screenplay-erm-I-mean-book' tradition, The Babylon Revelation is a big blooper. Not helped by the very bad copyrightng, clearly outsourced to a non English native speaking firm. The littering of typos and at times poor grammar are embarrassing. Does no-one from the publisher check such things? Very poor show. Needless to say, I will not be purchasing or reading any further publications from Jack Fernley.
Yes it reminds of the Da Vinci Code, and yes it does not really acomplish something, BUT the story gives a merry chase to and fro Europe and it is entertaining. The first quarter is too slow as far as I am concerned however then it comes along quite nicely. The journal of the ancient priest which is put in here and there makes it more palpable which is a good idea. Two main questions remain unanswered, which I found bad due to this I deducted one star. (What became of the last visitor and where to vanished that Mossad chick?) All in all the book has a kind of “unfinishedness“ both in story telling, characters and General way of writing which seems to suggest a lets say not quite matured author. However I loved the idea of all those different people to be convinced that the Babylon Relevation is real . If you like to speculate about the alien visitation idea I would recommend Resurrection, which is thought through much better.
No matter if you believe IT or not, this book turned out to be unputdownable. A wild quest all over Europe to Saudi-Arabia with a somewhat weird hero couple, one of which is an utter sceptic. If you liked Da Vinci code you will love this one
