HASH(0x97714dbc) out of 5 stars The Silence of the Tablets Runs Deep 5 May 2013
By Jan DeLaney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just finished reading an interesting, challenging and very thought provoking novel: REMARKABLE SILENCE by Karen Wills. It is self-published through Amazon, available in paperback and for the Kindle. I read the Kindle version.

IT IS NOT A QUICK READ and NOT for the weak and faint hearted when it comes to having one's faith tenets challenged. The book has both a political plot and religious tolerance plot in it that become one as just enough centuries' old eye-witness information in the tablets becomes mysteriously leaked to the world. The religious and geographically side is well documented. Not required but helpful if one has some knowledge of Scripture, both Old and New Testament, more Old than New. It is far more helpful if the reader is open to having his faith wings of religious tolerance challenged to spread out to fly in new directions.

If one finds his faith tenets challenged, he might have to overcome some anger at the direction she is going. One might not agree with that direction, but her word choice and imagery interweaving the real plot of what might happen to this knowledge from the tablets if it becomes known to the masses in each of the three major faiths that claim origin in Israel will lead the reader to the end which is in the political arena with an interesting twist.

The thought has just occurred to me that the way the story is written is like a lawyer subtly presenting a case to the jury, me in this case. The lawyer raises many questions that require me to interact in some way both to the written story and on a more personal scale to the religious and political venue around me. How am I going to?

I would recommend this to a 'lone' reader, but also to a book forum group. It merits discussion!

HASH(0x97714e10) out of 5 stars Compelling, disturbing, thought-provoking 20 May 2013
By Janice Mazur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Remarkable Silence is a remarkable exploration of a culture-shattering `what if' . . . What if credible, first-person historical writings were discovered which shook---no, obliterated-- the very foundations of the three major religions? What impact would the newly-disclosed truth have on religious and political institutions across the globe? Meticulously researched, Remarkable Silence alternates between the astonishing text of the ancient tablets authored by contemporaries of Moses through and beyond Mary, mother of Jesus, and the modern day reaction to their shocking revelations by political and religious leaders determined to destroy the tablets or use them for their own ends. Peopled with cunning politicians, ruthless assassins, and true-believers of every faith who will do anything to protect their own `truth', the story deftly penetrates the inner circles of Washington, Jerusalem, Palestine, and the Vatican and explodes in an utterly unexpected, disturbing but surprisingly satisfying ending. Remarkable Silence raises many hard questions about the nature of faith, truth and power. Are faith and truth compatible? Does truth even matter to faith? Does power control truth? A thought-provoking novel, but people of faith be warned: it is not for the faint of heart.

HASH(0x98a6792c) out of 5 stars Very well researched 19 May 2013

If you like Dan Brown's novels, you will enjoy this novel. The author did extensive research for this novel, and she has woven three major religions into an intriguing and suspenseful story.

HASH(0x9823f258) out of 5 stars Prepare to be startled and challenged.... 22 May 2013
By D. Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What if Moses was a charlatan? What if Jesus was a charismatic schizophrenic? What if God/Allah is a creation of human imagination?

Wills's debut novel tackles concepts as audacious as Dan Brown's, but her writing far surpasses his. Historical characters "write" much of the novel. The voices of Moses, Eli, and especially Mary, leap to vivid life, describing struggles of ancient peoples whose human flaws resonate even today.

This is a literate, intelligent examination of myth, power, and politics that demonstrates a deep understanding of human psychology and its need to explain the unknown. This novel will challenge ingrained beliefs of centuries and may shake up readers of many faiths. But the questions raised by this author are worthy of examination and contemplation.

This book will stay with you long after you've finished it.

HASH(0x98232084) out of 5 stars Remarkable Silence by Karen Wills 7 May 2013
By janice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Remarkable Silence is a "What if..." fiction that is obviously based on in-depth research. It is well written, especially the descriptions of Israel. I could feel the grit and heat on my face from the desert wind and am still relishing the sunsets of lavender and apricot.

Existential questions that most of us ask ourselves sooner or later are weaved throughout the novel (E.g. Truth (albeit fictional truth) vs. faith) and gave me a great deal to ponder.

I found it to be satirical and cynical, humorous and serious. The plot is complex: interlaced with Harvard academics, religious groups and politicians that each have their own agenda. Even so, the story flows, moving forward as it leads the reader through twists that reach a very unpredictable ending.
