" Qumran " is a fascinating book, the first book of a trilogy ( Le Trésor du Temple", La Dernière Tribu" ) by Eliette Abecassis about the history of the" Scrolls of the Dead Sea"
" Qumran " is more than a simple triller, despite falling dead and the investigation of the hero. It should not be reduced to mere police investigation conducted by Ary and his father. This book is an excellent paper on Judeo-Christian religions and their origins, and its theological culture, especially about the famous...more

Qumran, which I read in French, was a delightful surprise. I had actually bought it at the supermarket in Paris, out of sheer boredom, during one of my emergency trips home.

Pourtant bien écrit ce livre prometteur n’est pas un véritable thriller. Si le style est impeccable, la maîtrise du suspens laisse à désirer.

Persevere with this book as it takes quite a few attempts, but the main thing is getting started, once you are into the first scroll the adventure will carry you.

L'idée de départ est intéressante et le début du livre passionnant mais tout cela s’essouffle assez vite. L'intrigue manque de rythme et les longueurs sont trop nombreuses, dommage...

Excellent livre qui tient en haleine jusqu'à la fin et qui ne laisse pas indifférent. Le personnage principal est fouillé et très intéressant dans son évolution.

Passionnant mais fiction. Compléter l'information via I Tunes U. Documents archéologiques et historiques sur Qumran.

Mon souvenir, des années plus tard : passionnant mais compliqué.
