The Book of Zev is a political thriller that tells the story of two gentle people who change the course of history. Zev Bronfman, a strapping 32-year old-virgin, angry atheist, refugee from a religious Jewish life, and former engineer for the U.S. Patent Office in Alexandria, Virginia, drives a cab and sleeps around in New York City. After a bitter divorce, Sarah Hirshbaum, a beautiful, redheaded, depressed, God-hating kosher chef, seesaws between yoga and too much red wine. Independently, the two consult the same psychic who inadvertently sends Sarah Zev’s session tape. When Sarah contacts Zev to pick up the recording, a series of events forces them to connect with a powerful terrorist in order to thwart his plans to destroy the UN and Israel.

I couldn't put the book down. It is a great book to take along on vacation-whether for the plane, the beach, poolside or a ski lodge. The author gets you involved quickly and keeps your attention through to the finish.
This is a very well written book with a very entertaining plot. Zev is a 32 year old man still living with his parents and working for U.S.Patent Office. He was raised in the best Jewish tradition and a near death experience makes him rethink his values and his life. Also a psychic experience that makes him act and save the life a child has a deep impact upon him. Sarah is a gorgeous kosher chef that is coming from a divorce. She also has Jewish roots and also question God in her own way. When Zev moves to NY to drive a cab and to change his life style, going away from his Jewish family, he met Sarah by accident and the story evolves in a high intensity thriller. While they are trying to stay away from God, He has other plans for both of them, like saving the United Nation and Israel from complete destruction. So, nothing happens by accident! With a superb analysis of the psychological minds of the characters, the author manages to bring to life an incredible thriller that will keep the reader at the edge of his/her seat for most of the book. Be aware that you might loose your whole night for not being able to stop reading this wonderful novel. Definitely one of the best books I have read this year. Kudos to the author for this magnificent work! I received this book from the author for reviewing and I was not requested to post a positive review. Opinion expressed here is my own.
