In its literary aspect, this book was very good. It was well-written, with interesting historical details and realistic, suspenseful personal dilemmas for the main characters. However, as I got deeper into this book, I realized that the message it conveyed was one I do not agree with. Its moral is that, as long as you are being yourself and doing what truly makes you happy, it does not matter what religion or god you follow. The truth is, if you are following a false religion, you will never be truly happy. Only through God can you really "be yourself". Also, I was disappointed in how Moses was portrayed. Yes, he was human, and I liked how this book showed him struggling realistically. However, his service to God was so much more than a way to escape murder accusations or a way to "find himself". In the end, this book is a well-written, insightful, original historical fiction, but it must be read with discernment.
