Philosophical Thriller

Israel exists due to the unarguably despicable behavior of Western Europeans. In Noah Beck’s debut thriller the continued existence of Israel is now threatened by the nuclear capability and contemptible rhetoric that emanates from Iran; a very real threat that is ripped from today’s headlines. The Last Israelis explores in depth the ethical and moral decisions involved in the engagement of war and Beck skillfully draws the reader into the characters backgrounds and their divergent ideologies. Primarily set on a submarine, the debates are skillfully written to give the reader a real sense of the difficulty of maintaining peace that is not overly Zionist in perspective. Beck is able to walk in quite a few shoes without stumbling and successfully pulls it off.

The plot moves forward with action and twists that occur between the debates toward a climax that will keep the reader turning the pages. Bruckner's narration expertly moves the listener through the plot. There is enough action to satisfy anyone searching for a good thriller with the added benefit of an outstanding moral debate that is so often absent in the Armageddon sub-genre of military thrillers. It’s a “what if” scenario that brings global politics into a disturbing and oh so possible development.

A compelling warning through the voice of fiction

Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Buckner Ford – was your favorite?

Jeffrey Ford does an exceptional job with narrating this story. He handles all the voices and accents well, and his pacing is just right. This was the first of his narrations to which I had listened. I look forward to hearing another story read by him.

Any additional comments?

Noah Beck has created an engaging story involving a present-day world threat. Through the perspectives of his characters and well-executed action scenes, listeners are drawn into this fiction and into the concerns and challenges facing the submariners aboard the Dolphin. His book's subject: Iran's threat against Israel is presented in a way that makes all who read it give serious thought to this ever-present possibility that is not being taken seriously enough.
