Reviews - What do customers think about Munich Signature (Zion Covenant V3)?
Exciting and horrifying Aug 14, 2005
This is a very good story which seems to be quite well researched. If there is one blight I would say it tries to cover too many characters' plotlines, and, although they are interwoven, it can be a bit distracting.
Overall a great read.
A descriptive, well thought out book. Jul 28, 1999
I had to read the first book in the series, Vienna Prelude, for a summer reading book for my school. I enjoyed the book so much that i have continued to read the rest of the series. This is one of those books that you really put your heart into, the authors did a very good job of getting the research, and then adding into the book their own insight. You come to love the characters, and when one is hurt, you feel the pain. In fact, on several occasions it has moved me to tears. You want to keep reading to find out what happens to the little coffin ship, The Darien, with all the Jewish refugees on it and nowhere to go. And all the other charecters you have came to love, you read further into, several of them surprising you with their actions. In a few places it does seem to get a little slow, but for the most part it is a deeply touching book.
printing errors Dec 22, 1998
I loved this book up until about page 225 when approx 30 pages (to 257) from the first book in series of Zion Covenant were in its place. I feel like I have missed several important events in this saga!
WWII from the viewpoint of the Jewish community. Nov 22, 1997
Bodie and Brock Thoene have written a moving description of the pain and terror of the Nazi occupation of Vienna and their impending blitz of Prague. The characters have been fleshed out so well in the first two novels in the series, that I felt as if I was standing on the street watching it happen. For me that is the best. It does get a little slow in places. Mostly because you want to get to the next page and see what happened. They pull in characters from the past novels that you had forgotten about and continue their story and if you had never left them. Otto, a seemingly bitter Tyrolean, has joined the Nazi movement and has risen in the ranks. When his path crosses Elisa's again, the results are surprising. There are stories about Christians helping Jews, Jews escaping on a decrepit old ship and their courage in the face of ridicule and rejection from the human race. Then there is Murphy a journalist, who has seen it all, on a lone crusade. Fiction blends with life and reality with total disbelief at what the world knew and refused to deal with. Brock is a digger of facts and it is obvious in his wife's writing. I come away from every book in the series hungry for more and even more knowledgeable about our past and the possibility of our future. The team takes you to places you've heard about and wanted to visit. They turn you upside down and forever change how you see out world. I would suggest this book to anyone who wants to know the real of what our country, as well as the rest of the world did or didn't do for the people being massacred in Hitler's Reich.
