This was rather interesting, giving Judas a voice in his own book is a rather clever idea. The pace is nicely set, we are first introduced with Judas as an old man, living else where, but is aware of what people call him.
It does make rather interesting reading, although not really historical fact,no one really knows the true history of Judas after all, but it does make you think about the bible and how the author puts these new ideas out there - that some things weren't actually meant to be take literally.
It's a good read, although could ruffle some feathers.
