Book Review: The Bible Code 2: The Countdown - Micheal Drosnin

Rating 3 out of 5 stars.

Synopsis (taken from Amazon) 

"Twin Towers" was encoded in the 3000-year-old text. "Airplane" appeared in exactly the same place. "It caused to fall, knocked down" crossed "airplane" and "towers"...But it was not this terrorist attack that really shook me. It was what the Bible code predicted was yet to come.' This is the sensational sequel to THE BIBLE CODE, which rocketed to the top of the bestseller charts in 1997. The discovery of a code encrypted in the Bible some 3000 years ago caught the public imagination. But if this code predicted the disastrous events of 9/11, what more can it tell us about our future? And if we are on the road to Armageddon, can it give us the information we need to survive? One word of advice - don't make big plans for 2006... 

My review

 I read the first book a couple years ago after picking it up in an airport. It was a real quick and light read. As a conspitacy fan whether I believe the conspiracy or not I do enjoy them.

This isn't a conpiracy that I actually really believe. Nor is it something that I feel a need to keep researching. 

The beginning starts on the morning of 9/11, and how he goes to the computer to see if the Bible Code 'Predicted'the twin towers collapsing. Obviously, surprise surprise it does. Yes I suppose I did say that in a sarcastic tone. 

Looking back it probably looks like I hated the book. I didn't. I can understand why people did not like the book. But if you look at it as a book that shows someone's passions and theories than it's OK. It couldn't be that bad... I wanna read the next one. I wanna be converted!
