Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Third Secret: A Novel (Taschenbuch)
One of the best books I've ever read in my life of 35 years. First, let me say that if you are Catholic and are not inclined to be open-minded, you probably shouldn't read it, since you will probably be offended. However, if you are open to possibilities and different viewpoints, this book can't be beat for questioning traditional Catholic practices, such as celibacy for priests. The plot opens around the events that took place at Fatima, Portugal in the early 20th century. Three peasant girls were visited by the Virgin Mary and told three secrets, two of which were immediately made public, the third not revealed until 2000. It is this third secret which is the focus of the book, that is, the part of the secret which wasn't revealed by the Pope at in 2000. The main focus of the book is that there are only three people left alive who know the entire contents of the third secret, one of which has great ambitions of becoming Pope. The current Pope and an aging priest in Romania are the other two. The ambitious Cardinal is out to ensure that the rest of the secret isn't revealed. This is all I'll say, lest I ruin the book. I will say that it is at least the equal of DaVinci Code, if not better. However, while the DaVinci Code was more of an Indiana Jones story, the Third Secret is a little more political. Bottom line: Also try 'Quest' von Giorgio Kostantinos.A super buch--this book gets five stars all the way.
