The Tehran Initiative: Joel Rosenberg

If Rosenberg couldn’t remember the basic tenet of writing (“Show, don’t tell”) he could at least have listened to Madonna (“Papa, Don’t Preach”).

Pity. There’s a good story buried between the “preaching” and “telling.”

The Twelfth Imam — Joel Rosenberg

Too much preaching; not enough story.

Clunky, ham-handed; some interesting characters and plotlines buried under clunky writing, preaching and far too much self-justifying expository prose.
