An original and creative novel enhanced with many theological specifics of Islam May 8, 2006
Apocrypha by T. S. Ferguson is an engaging novel depicting the lives of Scott Chad (an American mineralogical surveyor, geologist, and amateur archeologist), his partner Samuel Rogowski, and a spy sent from the Israeli secret intelligence named Julia Apostoli, as they excavate a lost tomb in the desert outside of Cairo. Apocrypha swiftly depicts the finding of the trio's discovery of a cave which has scriptures telling of writings hidden by Mohammed. The three protagonists must escape the grasp of two terrorist groups determined to steal the writings for their own profit and political advantage. An original and creative novel enhanced with many theological specifics of Islam, Apocrypha is very strongly recommended and entertaining reading, especially for those with an interest in the Middle-Eastern culture.
Good read Jan 26, 2006
reviewer, Student, January 26, 2006 Fun, romance, suspense, adventure What I liked about the book were the feeling that I was right in the action and the way it took me to Greece, Egypt and Africa. I had the feeling that I was right in the action. I also liked the spiritual part and the lessons learned there. The way the author brought out points about Islam and Christianity, how they started and THE LAW were intresting. Genesis tells how they would both, along with the Jews become great Nations, or said they would become great nations. The romance between the hero and Julia was great and she is a great charecter. Chad was a mix between Indiana Jones and maybe Jack Ryan and a great hero, but deeper. Samuel, the hero's sidekick was the kind of guy, everyone loves and has a lot to add to the story. Evil bad guys and how they became that way. An intresting twist was how they would turn bad and have a chance to turn good, but sometimes life is too overwheliming for them to change. Interesting book.
Thriller adventure novel Jul 22, 2005
Hard to put down type of book. Action and adventure with a kind of spiritual twist to it. I liked the way the countryside was shown and what is what like to be in Egypt, Greece and AFrica.
It's an adventure story about the search for and finding of a lost scroll of Mohammad's. A geological surveyor/archeologist in Egypt finds an ancient chamber with clues to some writings that Mohammad supposobly hid away. They were written down by his scribe, Zayd ibn Thabit. Upon return to his base camp, he and his companions are attacked by terrorists and most of their data stolen. This starts an adventure to find the lost writings taking the reader on an adventure throughout the Middle East to Greece and finally to Ethiopia. Scary and tense at times, but well told tale.
