Being a person who cares very much about Israel and wondering how it can continue to exist with so many surrounding countries wanting to "wipe it off the map", and knowing that these countries are trying to acquire nuclear weapons, this book brings out how the future might present itself. It definitely makes you think about how things are progressing in the Middle East.

Boring to the extreme.

Poorly written. Awkward dialog. Could have been a good book.

    A highly-recommended, must-read book one hopes will stay a work

    A highly-recommended, must-read book one hopes will stay a work of fiction.

    Buried amid all the seemingly urgent hyperbole of current events over the antics of ISIS, Hamas, and a myriad 
    other Islamic players and the reactions they illicit on the global stage; is the slow, persistent yet aggressive march 
    of IRAN towards realizing FULL NUCLEAR WEAPONS CAPABILITY.

    While the world’s media and general population are kept breathless and preoccupied by “always fresh” reports of 
    bombings and beheadings; IRAN has gradually recovered most of its money once held by sanctions. It has also 
    managed to delay nuclear disarmament talks repeatedly.

    The smokescreen is working!

    The Last Israelis by Noah Beck is a work of fiction but, as I monitor the simultaneous events spanning the globe, 
    it eerily edges closer to reality.

    In my youth I enjoyed and savored the science fiction, short stories of Ray Bradbury. Who would have known that 
    almost everything he wrote about would become so ubiquitous in our day, just a few decades on?

    I shudder to think that what Noah Beck wrote as a warning to our world leaders would go unheeded and we would 
    awake one day realizing it has become non-fiction.

    Noah Beck writes intuitively but with a firm grasp of current events and human nature.

    There are many lessons about choices and the far-reaching effects of the decisions we make today that we can 
    learn from The Last Israelis…time will be well served if we read it; if only to make sure that it does stay a work 
    of fiction.

    A look at what could happen in the middle east in the real world. Well worth reading.
