The story of the discovery and impact of an ancient sarcophagus that appears to impact the development of nuclear weapons.
A personalized look at Albert Einstein and Kurt Goedel at the institute of advanced study At Princeton. It is also the love story of a young art history instructor and an Egyptian archeologist.
A mixture of accurate details and clever imagination. ( )

I enjoyed the book, but I didn't like the ending. It got a little cheesy at the end for my taste. lol ( )

This was my July pick from Amazon's Kindle First program.
WWII, Albert Einstein and a supernatural twist. After reading the description I was quite intrigued and anxious to read the book. I'm actually disappointed that I didn't really like it.
I thought the plot and overall idea was great but it was just too slow for my tastes. Somewhere between pages 150-200 I began to lose interest and the only reason I finished the book was because I had to know how everything turned out.

I will say that the writing was excellent and while it is in no way a bad book, it just wasn't for me. ( )

If you like mystery, intrigue, spy type stories this will fit the bill for you. I think the addition of sex wasn't needed personally, but some might enjoy it. It wasn't total seedy romance novel at least. ( )

There is a part of this book where Einstein gets in a sailboat with a friend. They then notice it is going to rain and turn around and come back. This scene lasted for 5 pages and had nothing to do with the plot at all.

What the plot is actually about is some sort of cursed artifact from Egypt that causes people near it to be attacked by animals or experience deadly accidents. I guess this book is more for people who liked the movie The Mummy. ( )
