The Ezekiel Code – There are no Coincidences
Rating: 4 of 5
Author: Gary Val Tenuta
Available: Paperback

After taking over as director of a homeless shelter, seminarian dropout Ezekiel “Zeke” Banyon stumbles upon a mysterious document listing a strange series of phrases and numbers in his predecessor’s office. He and Angela Martin, a recently hired employee of the shelter, become fascinated with the odd phrases and codes. They set out on a journey which leads them to believe that the English Alphab

Gary Val Tenuta’s “The Ezekiel Code” is a fascinating read, and well-timed (2012 is vast approaching….). Some may shy away from its length, as it is over 600 pages long. Still, the chapters for the most part are quick, and I found it compelling to “read just one more chapter”….

The story in of itself is interesting. The only parts I found slow were the few where I felt as though something had been explained to another character before, thus myself, as the reader. Other parts were where codes wer

When homeless shelter manager, Zeke Banyon, begins seeing patterns of numbers everywhere in his life, he wonders if this is merely coincidence or whether something weird is going on. With research help from his assistant, Angela, Zeke slowly realizes that he’s onto something big; something that could change the course of the world, let alone what we believe about our history and evolution.

The Ezekiel Code is an clever, thought-provoking story of one man’s journey to save the world, whether he be

Zeke Banyon had no idea that on the fateful day Angela Martin walked into his office to apply for a position at the Seattle Waterfront Mission that his life would change forever - or that he was the 'chosen one' prophecied to somehow save the world from total destruction.
Gary Val Tenuta has written a suspense-filled book that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, hardly able to wait for what will happen next! The clues to Banyon's destiny just keep coming and he and Angela, along with p

The Ezekiel Code is one of those rare books, that once you read it, you will never see the world in quite the same way – a mark of excellence in storytelling. It changes you because it opens a portal to so many fascinating concepts, some of which are right before your eyes, laced throughout our lives and history, and others, which exist just beyond our general understanding, that it will keep you thinking and wondering about what it presents long afte

Here's one for my To Buy list.

This was a recommended book from an email forum I'm on, so I read a few reviews. Here's a quote from one that made this think I'd like this book:

"The book is a trip! Entertaining, intellectually stimulating and emotionally satisfying all in one. But hard to catagorize. The X-Files meets One Step Beyond? Dan Brown meets Rod Serling? Religious thriller? Speculative fiction? Sci-fi? A little of each, I guess." - D. Monson

Storyline: Zeke Banyon is perfectly happy living out his life at a homeless shelter, running the place quietly without the interference of the outside world. Just as his life begins to take an odd twist with too many co-incidences to believe, his new assistant, Angela Martin, comes into his life and wakes him up to the world through the use of computers and a different point of view. Not surprisingly, they hit it off quite well and are soon arm in arm and up to their armpits in a mystery bigger ...more

A "Dan Brown-style" mystery, the Ezekiel Code is an interesting exercise in numerology and cryptographic coding. Whether it will lead anywhere, and whether Val Tenuta can offer something different in a Vatican versus researcher story remains to be, um, read. This is the fifth book I've read on my new Kindle, and I figure I've saved half a tree already.

The sheer number of topics, relationships to numerology, the potential for alternate historical and spiritual concepts makes this an intriguing bo

A very enjoyable read. A very interesting book that tied together numerology, biblical prophecies, ufo's, secret organizations, secret codes, modern and perhaps future technologies. Along with all of this, were some great characters, good guys and bad guys. A very satisfying read that kept my interest from beginning to end.

I normally love this type of theme, and was excited to read it, but I couldn't finish it. The two main characters had such cheesy, lovesick teenage dialogue/internal monologue, and the the pace just wasn't right. I made connections on page one, but the character was still making them on page ten. I finally got bored with it and put it down after a couple chapters.
This book is TERRIBLE. The dialogue is stilted, the plot is nonexistent (so far), the writing slaps the reader in the face saying "you're an idiot and I'm better than you" and after 35 pages if I never see this book again it will be too soon.

I had such high hopes, but this maudlin drivel is absolutely not worth investing my energy in further.

Interesting book. Several topics were googled such as Coral Castle, Vimanas, Theosophy, torus shell, EVP, and others. All the number phrases were tedious after a while. What struck me in the book was that the main characters smoked a lot. ... normally I don't see this in other books that I read. Overall good book and interesting technology.

This book had a good story, but it was long. REALLY long. And it needed better editing. The "suppository of knowledge" just about put me over the edge.

The numbers were confusing because I have no math gene, but the premise was fascinating. Time is running out!!!

Good book, but drug a bit. Went into a little more detail in parts than what was needed, but other parts made it fantastic. Overall I did enjoy it.

Having had a life long interest in paranormal phenomena, esoteric lore, the supernatural, occult and ancient mysteries and basically anything that could be squeezed into those categories, it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that these same elements would become the fodder for my novels and short stories. I grew up devouring Poe, Lovecraft and Roald Dahl and those writers definitel ...more
