My Review: 4 out of 5 stars
I’m a Catholic but that doesn’t stop me from reading The Torah Codes by Ezra Barany there are some parts at the beginning of the book that lost me but I eventually found my way back to digest lots of random rants,things that doesn’t make sense at first but I truly enjoyed some other side quest along the way to the truth which greatly entertained and filled me with knowledge and awareness. I’m not really good at deciphering codes,solving mysteries and such I'm often stumped/clueless it took me lots of time and great amount of effort to even decode one thing I guess most of us do..I can so relate on each and every character dilemma as I move on with the rest of the story I found out that the protagonist Nathan's a bit paranoid and bi-polar,an intelligent guy, earned some good money for a living,odd sense of humor, freakin hilarious and Sophia who depends most of her life decisions and earnings in her favorite tarot decks which are most of the time true! shocking I know..as I read and journeyed along with them all those lies,mysteries,superstitions,card readings,revelations,spiritual calling,quest and missions of the secret society lurking about that tooks years in the making to accomplish has all enlightened me! It also made me appreciate more all kinds of religions, our diverse nature and culture. This confirms and correlates each aspect of things in life.The antagonist Luke McCourt he's really quite nice..yet creepy in a way that goes well in the cycle along with other team members I got so caught up with all his lies during his train conversation with Sophia I almost believed him.
I like the fact page at the end of the book which separates it from fiction plus the essays from very highly respected individuals on their field.I love the gadget that was made for the greater good I’d like that to exist in reality so that would solve power shortage,world crisis,anything! I'd also like to see more of Nathan and Sophia to know up to where their brewing love would take them. All in all no matter what religion we’re in the God we all worship and glorify is in fact the same one and only God we just call him/her differently, takes form in lots of ways, there’s a little bit of God within us all we have to do is find out.
