Overview

Princeton, New Jersey, 1951: As a CIA operative watches from the shadows, two old men—Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion and world-renowned scientist Albert Einstein—enter Einstein’s home to speak privately about nuclear weapons and the existence of God.

Present Day Cairo, Egypt: Over lunch in the Muslim quarter, world-famous cryptanalyst Thomas Noronha is hired by a beautiful dark-haired woman, Ariana Pakravan, to decipher a cryptogram hidden in a recently discovered secret document under heavy security in Tehran. A manuscript penned by Albert Einstein, it is titled Die Gottesformel: The God Formula.

So begins a remarkable adventure that spans the world, as Thomas and Ariana pursue the dangerous truth behind an incredible document. The Einstein Enigma is a breathtaking fusion of science, thriller, and religion, a mind-bending trip to the source of time, the essence of the universe, and the meaning of life itself.

    Not the academic puzzle it promises to be

    As one who enjoys suspenseful novels centering around adventures of academic protagonists racing to solve puzzles, I was disappointed in "The Einstein Enigma" primarily because of the weak characters and immense discussion of physics. While the protagonist is claimed to be an academic cryptanalyst, a small amount of time in the book--a few pages in total--are actually dedicated to solving the cryptogram at the center of the novel; additionally, he solves very little of the puzzle on his own and requires help from others or a key to figure it out. While the discussion of physics, metaphysics, religion, and theories on time, space, and the universe are necessary to the plot, the author has nearly 1/4 of the entire book detailing discussions on physics theories that will sometimes lead the reader to question their relevance in the plot. If the reader is looking for something along the lines of Dan Brown's academic protagonist, she will be disappointed with this one; however, if one is looking for an easy plot with some scientific and theoretical ideas, this book will be an adequate read. It is not, however, a masterpiece or favorite read.
