This book may be about something profound, or we are fooled into thinking so by the poor spelling of common words. I think I will always remember the porch that "creeked" in the wind...

A group of adventurers break into the Vatican to to steal a rare book from a secret vault. The plot is good, but there are too many characters, and the author takes too long getting there. I love Steven Kotler’s writing though. I was willing to be patient as he moved his army of characters through the book. Along the way he shares some rare tidbits from Kabbalarian mysticism.

I finished this book, then turned back to the first page and started again, unwilling for the dream to end!
