Publisher's Summary

As war rages in 1944, young army lieutenant Lucas Athan recovers a sarcophagus excavated from an Egyptian tomb. Shipped to Princeton University for study, the box contains mysteries that only Lucas, aided by brilliant archaeologist Simone Rashid, can unlock.

These mysteries may, in fact, defy - or fulfill - the dire prophecies of Albert Einstein himself.

Struggling to decipher the sarcophagus's strange contents, Lucas and Simone unwittingly release forces for both good and unmitigated evil. The fate of the world hangs not only on Professor Einstein's secret research but also on Lucas's ability to defeat an unholy adversary more powerful than anything he ever imagined.

From the mind of bestselling author and award-winning journalist Robert Masello comes a thrilling adventure where modern science and primordial supernatural powers collide.

    "It is a Sci-Fi Thriller after all."
    What made the experience of listening to The Einstein Prophecy the most enjoyable?

    I like the premise of the story and how it plays out. The narrator is was very talented and made many of the characters come to life.


    What other book might you compare The Einstein Prophecy to and why?

    The Indiana Jones movies.....if there are books of Dr. Jones, I have never read them.


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    It was very well done.


    Any additional comments?

    This book does have a number of historical errors but the listener should remember that this is a science fiction style story. There are things that made me stop and think for a second but did not bother me too much. I like good stories and this is a good one. I recommend this one.

    "Brilliant Storyline"

    Loved it! Indiana Jones meets Angels & Demons meets The Exorcist. Set during the last years of WWll & combining real life characters & events with well developed fictional characters. It is the age old battle of good vs evil and a cautionary reminder that no matter how arrogant human kind becomes, there are powers beyond our control. And which one we choose can be the difference between our salvation or downfall; or on a larger scale, universal annihilation.

    "So entertaining"

    If you want an entertaining mystery/thriller this is a good choice. Not that intricate, not glory, but just right

    Any additional comments?

    Einstein is a secondary character in this book, an old and completely mortal college professor. The way he is portrayed is charming and did not disappoint me by conflicting with my image of him. The accents in this book add a lot of character to it.
    The legend of St. Anthony of Egypt (who wrestled demons) provides the history for what unravels in this supernatural story. Demons disturb me more than zombies or ghosts, and I might have found this story more upsetting than exciting, but for the elaborate use of classic scary stuff: bats, grinning gargoyles, scorpions.
    The main male character is a nice enough guy, professor of art history, being forced by the government to study a intriguingly old, but also creepy sarcophagus.
    The main female is an ambitious scholar who works beside her ailing father. She's very beautiful, blah, blah. There's two sex scenes, but not too explicit. The romance of the two main characters seems to have been put there out of habit or something, I didn't care about it. But, there's not too much carrying on about it, so it didn't affect my overall opinion or the book.

    Completely predictable, no surprises. It was ok on daily deal, but I wouldn't waste a credit.

    "An exciting read"

    This book must be read during the day with someone else nearby! The author has done an excellent job of releasing the devil long buried in an Egyptian tomb and sharing the horror with a group of professors and students of art history, as well as Albert Einstein.

    Story
    "Very good but you sort of want more..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Einstein Prophecy to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version, and as such cannot comment.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robert Masello? Why or why not?

    Definitely yes. Very creative, well developed characters and good foreshadowing versus plot twists. The conclusion sort of ends abruptly, but aside from that, very impressive.


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    CL is one of my personal favourite performers on Audible, and this offering is no exception. Good character delineation, accents and pacing. He is a pro!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I was in prison perhaps. Otherwise, simple logistics are against it.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is somewhat sprawling, and could use a good editor. That said, Lane brings an interesting story to life, and on balance, I recommend this thriller.

    "Thoroughly unoriginal"

    Imagine the screenplays for Fallen, The Monuments Men and Raiders of the Lost Ark were mashed up and jotted down. Sure, it's well written and the tempo is snappy but it's a real disappointment in terms of originality and inventiveness. A high point, though, is the excellent narration.

    "Fun bit of historical fiction...or is it???"

    I liked the story and performance was top-notch. The narrator does a great job with voices so you know who is speaking at all times. I enjoyed the story and the historical references seem to fit. Would give it 4.5 out of 5.
