I admit I loved the subject, but this guy has the ability to take facts and make them seem like a novel. Wish I would have read this back in the 90's when the book came out.
I had previously read American Lightning and really liked it. I don't know why I never bothered to see if the author had written any other books. The other day I again recommended American Lightning to a patron and this time thought to look up what other books he had written and ordered one.
Dec 29, Angelia Phillips rated it it was amazing. Even with so many negative reviews to steer me off, glad they didn't. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There are other books written of the same adventure, but this is the first one I've read and I thought Blum did a great job taking the reader on a quest with these two men and I appreciated the various perspectives the story was written from.
I have a more thorough review on my blog femme's Desk at flashnee. Jun 18, Jennifer rated it really liked it. I found this book in a give away pile, and picked it up on a whim. It's a well-paced journey that keeps the reader intrigued while weaving in bits of the greater world picture. I'm very glad I picked it up. Jul 22, Kelly Atkins rated it it was amazing. One of my all-time favorite books! Apr 10, T. So enjoyed reading this great adventure Great adventure I give it a thumbs up What can I say that hasn't already been said you have to read it for yourselves.
Enjoyed it very much. May 14, Ted Tabour rated it really liked it. Good story about Mount Sinai. Well written and flows well. I learned a lot about a subject I knew little about.
Feb 21, John rated it really liked it. Reads like a novel, but a true story about the search for the real Mt. Fascinating and adverturous.
Jan 10, Zaid Ismail rated it really liked it. A surprisingly fascinating tale of how two researchers went in search of the real Mount Sinai and where they eventually discovered it. It's an ambivalent read for those that revere the Christian scriptures, but also recognise the convenient interpretations that were used to follow the trail, or to deduce the rationale of the ancient civilisation that made the journey across the Red Sea.
Nonetheless, it contains some intriguing evidence by way of photographs of artefacts found on the sea bed that A surprisingly fascinating tale of how two researchers went in search of the real Mount Sinai and where they eventually discovered it. Nonetheless, it contains some intriguing evidence by way of photographs of artefacts found on the sea bed that support their case for the conclusions that they arrive at. This book could easily pass as both an adventure novel and a non-fiction research aide for anyone interested in the subject of the great exodus of the Israelites as described in the Christian scriptures.
Apr 06, Sean Helms rated it liked it. I don't normally go for non-fiction reads, but this was fairly entertaining.
The partners in archaeology traipse from Cali to London, Egypt to Saudi Arabia on their quest to find the lost gold of the Jews from their trek from Egypt to the Promised Land. The team have some harrowing adventures and scrapes, especially when they sham their way into the Kingdom.
Nov 30, Mark Matzeder rated it it was ok. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The book was well-written and the story flowed well, but it really isn't my cup of tea. Spoiler: there is no actual archeological evidence presented in favor of the "true Mount Sinai" claim and whether or not the two American adventurers who made the clandestine journey to Jabal al-Lawz proved anything about the Exodus account is a subjective matter.

Really exciting book to read. The story moved quickly and was very exciting. Unfortunately it ended a little flat, but since it was based on a real life story, I guess the reality what flat and uninteresting as well. Drinking Hanging Out In Love.
