Disappointing and Clumsy

This book was a disappointment. I had expected the author would propose some new location for the ark based on new research and fieldwork, but that was not the case.

The first half of the book is dedicated to describing a series of clumsy attempts to locate the real Mt. Sinai, and while there are a few interesting anecdotes and bits and pieces of compelling evidence, you can't help but laugh at the ridiculous nature of the author's search and the peril in which they find themselves (who climbs a mountain in 100 degree heat with only a couple of bottles of water?). When the book finally gets to the author's search for the ark, it becomes a simple rehash of Graham Hancock's Axum Ethiopia theory, with no new theories on its location.

Given the nature of the story, all of this might have been tolerable if not for the author's clipped and wooden narration (for some strange reason he always reads the letter "a" in its long form, regardless of where it's located in the sentence). Unfortunatly, you would have to listen to the book to understand just how annoying this becomes.
