Some additional notes for the author:
One of the characters being Paul from the Bible was really interesting, however you write that Paul was one of the disciples, which he wasn't. He wrote a good portion of the New Testament but never walked with Jesus. I expected a paragraph to be in there somewhere to claim that the history passed down in the Bible was not accurate regarding Paul, but this was never presented so it makes it seem like the author is not knowledgeable about who Paul was which detracted from the story.
I also feel the story would have felt more plausible as 'real' if Nikodemus had not been the 43rd President of the United States (changing the history we know to be true). I really enjoyed the idea of 'What if this is a real biography?' as I read the first half of the book and that was lost with the two issues I point to above.
All of that said I still enjoyed this book a lot and had it not been for editing issues I would have likely given it 4 stars. No editing issues and the two items I mention above and this would have fallen into my very hard to attain 5 star category. It truly is a unique book and I hope you continue to write more.
There are a few interesting premises in the story but...
We have no reason to worry for the main character since death is not an issue for him, ever. The reader is never emotionally engaged and this becomes nothing but a man talking about himself, period.
The writer doesn't trust the readers and we're told every few pages how invulnerable or strong or fast he is. (That got seriously old and it lasts through the entire book.)
Our main character and his friends have ALL been a part of almost every bit of our recorded history. For folks who try not to interfere in the history of the human species, well, needless to say that they're there throughout. From sitting at the table of Jesus, chasing Hitler, writing timeless novels as famous authors, destroying Atlantis and saving humanity from the snake head suit wearing aliens (where have we heard that one before), there seem to be a multitude of familiar themes we've seen on TV.
The writer either had no editor, never let an editor see this version or it was written by one of those spam bots that spits out sorry looking comments on websites. (Website owners know what I'm talking about. We get them all the time in the spam filters).
But this book could be a great tool for aspiring writers to see what not to do and how to actually trust your readers or yourself in telling a story. It's a good "tool" to learn from.
I was once told I write like a NASCAR fan and when I have issues with a written piece, that can't be good. I picked this book up on the advice of an author I trust but it was free. Though even free, that might have been too big of a price to pay.
I apologize for this negative bit Afobos, but I had to get this out there in case someone was thinking about dropping $14 on a version of the book. That I could not let happen, because like Aris, I needed to take this opportunity to protect the innocent!
Update: One aspect I did not take into account is where the author is from, which is Greece. (I just checked) This could explain some of my lack of connecting with his writing. -B
