I liked it only for the reading by Jeremy Irons - great way to fall asleep. No, I don't relate to the content.

This is not a novel. It is an excessively preachy and very long sermon. And not even a good sermon. Sermons are supposed to use a story to teach you something. But this has NO story. This "book" is just a series of platitudes and rants, and the set-up of being Jerusalem the night before its fall is utterly superfluous.
