Isaac: A modern fableIsaac: A modern fable by Ivan G. Goldman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This fable was a quick and entertaining read. I enjoyed the first 2/3 of the book, but the last 1/3 felt a bit rushed and convoluted. The characters themselves fell a bit flat, but this piece did not feel as though it were written with character development as the main goal. Nevertheless, for a character that has lived for thousands of years, we find out surprisingly little about how he occupied that time, which is disappointing.

The dialogue was witty, and I enjoyed the author's amusing self-insertion. For a story about a biblical character, the amount of religious overtone in the book was spartan _ I never felt "preached to" as I sometimes do when reading religious-themed works. Overall, an enjoyable read.

I received a review copy of this book through the LIbraryThing Early Reviewers Giveaway.
