Alpha and Omega

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Harry Turtledove

Narrated By: George Guidall

Date: July 2019

Duration: 14 hours 40 minutes

Summary:

'The standard-bearer for alternate history' (USA Today) now turns his potent imagination to the End of Days in this gripping novel about a discovery in the Middle East that turns the world upside down. What would happen if the ancient prophecy of the End of Days came true? It is certainly the last thing Eric Katz, a secular archaeologist from Los Angeles, expects during what should be a routine dig in Jerusalem. But perhaps higher forces have something else in mind when a sign presaging the rising of the Third Temple is located in America, a dirty bomb is detonated in downtown Tel Aviv, and events conspire to place a team of archaeologists in the tunnels deep under the Temple Mount. It is there that Eric is witness to a discovery of such monumental proportions that nothing will ever be the same again. Harry Turtledove is the master at portraying ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events, and what is more extraordinary than the incontrovertible proof that there truly is a higher force controlling human destiny? But as to what that force desires . . . well, that is the question.

    The book was a little slow in the beginning and I almost quit it because I just couldn’t get into it. But with George doing the narration and my perseverance I pushed through the first few chapters and then couldn’t stop listening. It takes a minute to figure out how the book is presented but so worth it once you do. So, overall I feel this im was a great book. Loved the premise and what it leads you to believe and how it caused me to think. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of the ending - it just ended. I guess you’ll come up with your own conclusions, which isn’t always a bad thing, but took me by surprise when I heard the words, “The end.” I remember thinking to myself - that’s it? Bummer. Still, you won’t be disappointed by selecting this book. And George Guidall always makes an audio book that much better!

    I was super impressed with this book. I have never read a Turtledove novel before but I'll be checking out the rest of his books. As always George Guidall's narration was amazing.

    A slow moving novel. I lost interest after chapter 10ish. I gave up a few chapters later. Sad because I live to read.

  • James M.

    Even a spectacular narrator like Guidall can’t salvage this preachy, redundant, and colossally boring novel. I rarely leave a book, or a movie for that matter, unfinished — if you can get through half this read you beat me.
