I was completely satisfied with the amazing story-telling in Resurrection. I love that (unlike the Da Vinci Code knockoffs) this book is not attempting to claim any unreasonable evidence. The author presents early Christianity through fact and not false testimonies! This book has vivid characters. I strongly recommend this mystery, romance and thriller to anyone who wants not only a great read but a refreshing and inoffensive perspective on the roots of Christianity.

A fun read
So, one wonders if Tucker Malarkey (is this REALLY her name?) is full of "malarkey"? A very interesting topic...was Mary Magdalene a companion to Jesus? There have been several books that address this and it does seem very plausible. I always like when historical facts or observations are put inside a fictional story. One can learn things while being entertained. The plot is interesting, although some what predictable. The subject matter is fascinating. I did not give this 5 stars, because I felt it a bit contrived and predictable. However, Ms. Malarkey has really done a good job of research and story telling. A Fun Read, especially for those looking for a unique female hero and are in love with the romantic setting of Egypt and archeological digs of the 1940's.Was this review helpful?

Intellectually Stimulating and a Good Story
Tucker Malarkey must have done some extensive research for this book, and it paid off. I had heard nothing of the Nag Hammadi nor the lost gospels before reading this, so the whole topic was stimulating! At the same time, the story kept the pages turning. For those of you who are looking for an intellectual piece of literature beyond a theology textbook and would also like a bit of a love story that's not reeking with impractical sappy-ness, this is for you! Definitely a good book for those who question certain aspects of Christianity as well as for feminists.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A MUST READ
I loved this book and was so disappointed when I finished reading it. I didn't want it to be over. Not fast moving like Map of Bones, Angels and Demons or the DaVinci Code, but still very fascinating. I wish there was a sequel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
