Product description

Review

Brooks weaves a fascinating tale....Wren s accents and pronunciations...convey an authenticity that allow the listener to be transported to different times and places....Older teens might be fascinated...adults will not be able to stop listening. --Kliatt

Dazzling....transports the reader to a fully realized, vividly peopled world....[Brooks s] depiction of the Haggadah bringing together Jews, Christians and Muslims could not be more timely. Her gift for storytelling, happily, is timeless. --Publishers Weekly

People of the Book is a marvelous novel, an exhilarating and beautifully written blend of mystery and history that is everything a certain pedestrian bestseller with Da Vinci in the title purported to be, but wasn't. After taking Brooks's irresistible journey through time in the company of a fascinating old book, you may wish you could board the next plane to Sarajevo to see the real thing. --BookPage

Review

"Sensuous and fascinating." (The Times)

"Brooks is too good a novelist to belabor her political messages, but her depiction of the Haggadah bringing together Jews, Christians and Muslims could not be more timely. Her gift for storytelling, happily, is timeless." (Publishers Weekly)

"Brooks expertly guides us to the conclusion that the world is made up of only two types of people: those who would destroy books and those who would give their lives to save them. This illuminating novel, like its predecessor, is well worthy of both Pulitzer and prime-time approbation." (The Independent on Sunday)
