    1. ¿Alguien me puede explicar por qué este libro tiene un rating tan bajo? Me gustó muchísimo. Es una novela que sorprende con cada página, con un ritmo absorbente y adictivo. No varía el nivel en ningún momento, tiene personajes muy bien desarrollados, una trama correctamente hilvanada y un final tremendo.Ampliamente recomendado.


    2. Die sechsunddreißig Gerechten dieser Welt. Wie lange werden sie noch leben? Das weiß nur Gott – und diejenigen, die sie töten. Ein uralter Papyrus mit einer Namensliste. Nach jahrelanger Suche im ägyptischen Wüstensand hält Sir Rodney ihn endlich in den Händen. Wenige Minuten später ist der Archäologe tot. Damit nimmt eine rätselhafte Mordserie ihren Lauf. Auf der ganzen Welt werden Menschen getötet, die bestimmte Namen tragen. Und nur David Shepherd kann das Morden stoppen. De [...]


    3. The best thing about The Book of Names is that Gregory and Tintori don’t insult their readers by keeping up a ruse for too long. Once they reach a point where any reader can figure out who the mysterious antagonist is, they give you his full name. They don’t torture their readers with eye-rolling moments throughout the rest of the book for the simple shake of a final, ‘shocking’ moment. For that, they’ve come up with something more inspired.The science behind discovering the thirty-six [...]


    4. Sweat poured from my armpits as I readThis book isn't good, but it gets an extra star for not being the painful kind of bad. It's just another me-too Dan Brown knockoff whose really notable aspect is that it's based in Judaism rather being another Catholic-centric conspiracy thriller.It's kind of fun in a dumb way, sort of the equivalent of a laughably bad B movie. Notable aspects include:-the inexplicable focus on describing sweat running from characters' armpits, mentioned no less than four ti [...]


    5. Teton County Library Call No: F GREGORYSusannah Broyle's Rating: 3 StarsThe perfect read-a-like for The DaVinci Code…except instead of delving deep into Christianity’s roots it goes into Judaism’s history. It takes an obscure Kabbalah belief that there are 36 pure, godlike people in every generation. If there are any less, bad things begin to happen. It has all the classic ingredients for a religious themed mystery: an unlikely, unbelieving protagonist who needs to save the world, a beauti [...]


    6. Not terrible, but fairly pedestrian suspense novel that never quite lived up to the intriguing premise on which it is based.The main characters are familiar and relatable, but not exactly memorable. I was curious what would happen to them, but didn't feel as though I was concerned for them. I was not deeply invested, in other words.As with just about any suspense novel that centers around a cult or group of bad guys, the final few chapters were a hastily thrown together flurry of meticulous figh [...]


    7. This book was good but not spectacular. It's a similar style to the DaVinci Code - all about Adam's book of names and the battle to save the Lamad Vovniks. The conspiracy and mystery was not as deep and thorough as I would have liked, so it ended up being a relatively quick read. Still worth the effort, but probably not one to place at the very top of your to-read pile.


    8. What an honor and a pleasure to be able to read this book written by my friend! Excellent book with a great topic and suspense! Thanks so much Karen!!!


    9. This novel was a bit 'colour by numbers' for me. It was fine, good in places, pedestrian in others, an overall readable novel. The premise was intriguing - an ancient cult set on destroying the world, knocking off the holy ones (36 people who don't know that they are spiritually enlightened to the point that their very existence stops the world from slipping into complete darkness) from the book of names, yep those from the title, to bring about total annihilation of planet Earth battling agains [...]


    10. This was a great book. It started off a bit slow, but with a little effort, getting through some of the initial story plot will lead you to an increasingly addictive finale. I listened to this in audio-book form, and my only complaint is that the voices are truly horrible. The audio-book company could have at least gotten female and male readers to do the voices instead of one man trying to emulate a 13 year old girl, an Israeli scholar, and several other female characters, in addition to severa [...]


    11. My kind of suspense/thriller based on ancient Jewish mystical symbols. This book was similar to the Dan Brown books.



    12. This review was originally posted on Ticket to AnywherePlace(s) Traveled to: New York City, New York // London, England // IsraelFirst Line: Two men shoveled the sand under cover of darkness.The premise of this book is simple, into every generation there are 36 pure souls (lamed koviks) that are born who through their existence keep the earth together. If any of these souls die then bad things start to happen - war, famine, earthquakes, etc. Way back when in Biblical times Adam, bright boy that [...]


    13. Best selling authors Jill Gregory and Karen Tintori deliver a well crafted, thoroughly researched suspense thriller in Book of Names. Get ready for a sweeping cinematic portrayal of a world spinning out of control. This panoramic story reaches back to the dawn of man drawing on a Talmudic tradition that Adam compiled the Book of Names. This book is believed to list thirty-six Lamed Vovniks for each generation of humankind. According to the legend, these righteous souls stand between life as we k [...]


    14. Buku thriller itu sudah banyak di pasaran.Buku thriller yang membahas konspirasi Templar dan segala teori konspirasi Kaballahnya itu juga udah biasa (nyaris basi malah).Buku thriller yang mengangkat konspirasi dari sudut pandang seorang penganut kepercayaan Yahudi dengan Kaballahnya yang mistis dan unik, nah itu baru tidak biasa.Buku ini menyuguhkan pada kita sebuah cerita mengenai 36 orang yang 'berbudi baik' yang dikatakan menjaga keseimbangan dunia dari kehancuran oleh bencana maupun perang [...]


    15. Je ne vais pas vous mentir : sortir du carcan fantastique a été très dur pour moi. J’ai mis plusieurs mois pour finir ce livre, préférant d’autres lectures (notamment la saga Hunger Games quand je l’ai achetée). Mais finalement, même haché menu, ce roman a fait son petit effet.Tout d’abord, il explique un peu l’un des nombreux concepts de la Kabbale. Perso, quand on me parle de Kabbale, je pense à Madonna. Oui, je sais, cela fait très people de penser directement à la chante [...]


    16. The plot: University Professor David Shepherd, raised in the Jewish faith but for years a nonparticipant, becomes a key player in thwarting an evil plot to destroy the world. Following a childhood accident, David somehow became a channel for a higher power, and for years he's been recording names that come to his awareness in strange ways. Come to find out, they are the names of the 36 "pure souls" that have lived in every generation, without whom life on earth would end. The conspirators have m [...]


    17. Fantastic book. I found it on a fair and was intrigued by the text on the cover "watch out, Dan Brown". I had at the time just finished Angels and Demons by Dan Brown and liked his books very much. The book of names is about 36 righteous people in each generation that save the world from devastation. As they are being liquidated one by one, by the Gnoseos,a religious sect that intends to destroy the world, ultimately, disasters start occurring. The main character, professor Shepard, possesses th [...]


    18. I can honestly say that this book just makes you appreciate a book that is well written. This 'action-adventure' had me gritting my teeth and rolling my eyes more times than I care to think about. Truthfully, I was ever so glad it was finally over. It's not a bad premise for a story and certainly had potential to be on par with the Dan Brown series in the right hands, but it fell well short of achieving it. There were so many times that were implausible or impossible that I often found myself sn [...]


    19. Synopsis: Protagonists David Shepard and Yael Harpaz are on a mission to save the world - and David's step-daughter - from a secretive group called the Gnoseos. Of ancient origin, the group wants nothing less than Earth's destruction, which they believe will occur if all thirty-six of the world's purest souls are killed. With their numbers quickly dwindling and disasters increasing exponentially, David and Yael find themselves enmeshed in a sinister battle against the Gnoseos and their lethal hi [...]


    20. The Book of Names by Jill Gregory and Karen Tintori, is a book I enjoyed and was interesting enough to read through.The story follows the life of Professor David Shepherd who unwittingly comes across a list of names. These “Hidden Ones”, who aren’t even aware of their importance, keep the delicate balance of the world, and there are 36 of them. Unfortunately they are no longer hidden and someone is killing them off – one by one! As the number of Hidden Ones dwindles, the world grows unst [...]


    21. Dari sejak halaman pertama, bahkan dari sinopsis yang tertulis di bagian belakangnya saja, buku ini langsung sukses membuat saya terpikat. Dengan karakter tokoh-tokoh yang meyakinkan serta kombinasi plot cerita yang cepat dan penuh intrik, menjadikan buku ini sebagai sebuah thriller yang asyik untuk dibaca. Tidak hanya itu, dengan setting tempat yang ditulis dengan detail, The Book Of Names juga telah mengajak saya berkeliling berbagai benua dan negara. Khususnya bagi para pecinta thriller, saya [...]


    22. The perfect read-a-like for The DaVinci Code…except instead of delving deep into Christianity’s roots it goes into Judaism’s history. It takes an obscure Kabbalah belief that there are 36 pure, godlike people in every generation. If there are any less, bad things begin to happen. It has all the classic ingredients for a religious themed mystery: an unlikely, unbelieving protagonist who needs to save the world, a beautiful, intelligent sidekick, religious symbolism, evil sects, and the apoc [...]


    23. I read the audio version of this book. The story was nothing high-brow but was a fun thriller in a similar vein as The Day Vinci Code. This story focused on Jewish Talmudic and Kabbalist tradition. Basically, In every generation 36 righteous people are born, and it is these pure spirits who help to sustain God's presence in the world. These people are referred to as Lamed-Vavniks. At any point in time there are maybe several thousand of them in the world. But no one, not even themselves, knows w [...]


    24. I don't know why I keep trying with these books that are about "all the deep symbols and hidden meanings" of things, and the hero rushes around the save humanity from an evil that no one even knows is a thing. I should've just stopped after the DaVinci Code, because nothing else has entertained me as much. I'm not saying DaVinci Code was the be-all and end-all, but everything else feels like the authors jumped on the bandwagon. If any of the parts about the Jewish culture and history is true, th [...]


    25. The idea behind this book was very intriguing. It stems from the belief that Adam had written a book that contained all of the names of the "Blessed Righteous People." The world must have at least 36 of these at any given time. Without them, catastrophies begin to happen. Enter the Nosios, a religious group that thinks it knows better than God and tries to kill them all. The theory is that the minute the last "Hidden One" dies, the world will end, and they will move to a higher sphere. This book [...]


    26. This is a fast-paced thriller involving a Kabalistic interpretation of the Book of Names. This ancient document, ostensibly written by Adam, contains an encoded text listing the names of 36 individuals of each generation whose righteousness preserves the earth and its inhabitants.David Shepherd, a poli-sci professor at Georgetown U, has been prompted with names out of the blue since he was about 15 years old and he has been recording them in a notebook. He has no idea that the names he’s recor [...]


    27. Dlho som váhala, kým som si ju napokon požičala z knižnice. A neľutujem, skutočne bola tým, čo sľubovala. Zaujímavá hlavná myšlienka o prepojení existecie spravodlivých vo svete, ktorí udržujú jeho chod, hrozivé zobrazenie sekty a jej fanatickosti, do ktorej sa počítajú aj najvyšší predstavitelia krajín, postupne sa odhaľujúci príbeh a jeho čiastočky, ktoré do seba zapadnú ako puzzle jediným mínusom bol len vlečúci sa záver (za ten dávam o jednu hviezdičk [...]


    28. I really, really enjoyed this book - I read it in two sitting but had to get up and walk away periodically as the pace was actually making me nervous. Lol. For fans of Dan Brown, Dan Silva, Barbara Wood's Prophetess. I didn't know much about Kabbalah and Judaism and this was very informative. The characters were well developed, believable and easy to like. The story was not unbelievable and, because it wasn't about Christianity and the story line hadn't been done to death - it was fresh and new. [...]


    29. Very start of the synopsis for this book : “Within each generation, there are thirty-six righteous souls. Their lives hold the key to the fate of the world. Now someone wants them dead.”Yep – that’s pretty much it in a nutshell. If you are expecting deep, meaningful plot or even a plot that makes a whole lot of sense, this is probably not the book for you. But the characters were interesting and the author maintained a great mounting sense of panic and intrigue as the book went on. I wou [...]
