Ein Buch, das mir leider gar nicht gefallen hat. Insgesamt zwar ganz gut geschrieben und auch interessant von der Geschichte her und es gibt ohne Zweifel auch Stellen in dem Buch, die mir gut gefallen haben.
Aber wirklich mitfiebern oder Freude an der Handlung haben konnte ich nicht. Das liegt vermutlich daran, dass der Protagonist ein absoluter Arsch ist. Er ist arrogant, eingebildet, er betrügt seine Frau und ich habe beim Lesen einfach eine derart heftige Abneigung gegen ihn entwickelt, dass m

Very much in the "Dan Brown" style, there are several storylines which are confusing initially, but they do come together and from that point the book moves forward well and keeps you gripped to the end.

I think the only reason I gave it only three stars is that it was a bit too religious for my taste. I believe in God, don't get me wrong, I just have a problem with religion in general. Anyway, it was actually a really interesting read, and I learned a lot from it, especially since it motivated me to read Carl Jung's The Undiscovered Self which was also amazing and really inspiring.

Der Judasfluch, a book about the 30 silver coins of Judas. In this book, because of what Judas did, the coins have great power to destroy the church. Another church conspiracy book, a bit page turner.
