Just finished listening to the audio book version of Joel C. Rosenberg's The Ezekiel Option I loved it!
I started reading the print version last Fall and was enjoying the story, but found the rapidly changing "voices" a little hard to follow. Instead of giving up on the book, I discovered the CD book this spring and was instantly impressed.
Narrator Patrick Lawlor brings the book to life with stupendous voice characterizations, and on-the-mark accents and dialects which really help in identifying who the speakers are (and there are quite a few). Lawlor's performance completely "fixed" the confusion I experienced reading the print version.
As to the story (without giving anything away), it's a political grabber and apocalyptic thrill-ride, with just enough real Middle East history included to lend credibility. If your geography of the area isn't on par you just might want to Google up a few maps (current and ancient) to keep track of who all the players are.
