Review by: Hannes Birnbacher on Dec. 24, 2017 : (no rating)
I found out quite early that this book is way boring, but the topic was very interesting for me, so I read on. A writer searched for a new topic for his next book and met a scientist who has explored the Temple of Jerusalem ten years long. Jewish culture and rituals were thoroughly explained in the book.
I only made it to page 51. There were pages and pages full of "He shall slay the young bull before the Lord; and Aaron's sons the priests shall offer up the blood and sprinkle the blood around on the altar that is at the doorway of the tent of meeting. He shall then skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces. The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire". It still was historical fiction I wanted to read for good entertainment and not ever longer passages out of the thora, even though (or precisely because) they were necessary to understand the plot.
Normally, I do not award ratings for the type of books I read (see my profile).
