This review is from: The Book of Names (Hardcover)
Having read the synopsis to 'The Book of Names' by Jill Gregory and Karen Tintori, I was excited about getting the chance to read this book. At first instance, it seemed to be a tale akin to the likes of 'Da Vinci Code' or 'The Last Templar'. Sadly 'The Book of Names' is not in the same league.
The plot follows a man who has the gift of coming up with Kabbala's ancient book of names, and how he and his Israeli friends try to evade the murderous Gnoseos. I felt that both the plot and quality of writing weren't too impressive. I quickly got bored of the mediocre storyline, and the quality of the prose left much to be desired.
I would recommend this book to someone who's looking to kill a few hours on a plane or waiting at the airport without the need to concentrate too hard. Otherwise there are dozens of better novels worth reading before you come to this one.
