The Fire in the Rock, Charles H. Norman

A Tale You Have Never Heard

It’s a story that has become legend. The burning bush. The plagues on Egypt. The parting of the Red Sea. The Ten Commandments.

But before he was Moses, he was Kisil — a wanderer, an almost-ordinary man, both doubting and driven. 

And before she was the wife of a prophet, she was Tzipporah — the fierce, faithful woman who lent her wisdom and courage when he faltered. 

This is not a story of miracles and wonders. This is the story of a man and a woman — and of the love that brought them together and sustained them as they defied a king, freed a people, and changed the world.

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with learning the stories of the Bible. The Exodus story, in particular, has always fascinated me, it is one of the most well-known stories, and the movie adaptations that have been released have made me interested in the story even more. That is why I was so pleased to come across The Fire in the Rock! This excellent novel is a work of fiction, but it still has some bible teachings throughout it; it is a compelling, intriguing novel that will keep you entertained from beginning to end.

The Fire in the Rock is an interesting take on the Biblical Exodus story; this is because it is told in the first person narrative from Moses wife, Tzipporah. This immediately made me fall in love with this novel, ever since watching Exodus with Christian Bale, and seeing the actors portrayal of his wife on – screen, I have been fascinated with her so to read a book from her perspective is utterly brilliant! Tzipporahs perspective will intrigue and delight the reader from beginning to end, that is why I would implore all of you lovely readers to read this novel because it is brilliant!

The story of The Fire in the Rock is an incredibly dynamic, unique piece of work that took my breath away on more than one occasion, the pacing of this story was wonderfully written and plotted so that I did not get bored at any given time. I always measure my likeness of a book on whether I find myself looking at the page number; if I do in fact do this I know that the novel is taking its toll… in other words it is dragging, and I want it to end but The Fire in the Rock was different than this and not like this at all as never once did I find myself referring to the page number and that is a sure sign that this book is a compelling piece of work that draws the reader in and captivates them to read it quickly and to reach the end of the book very fast.

The objective of any great writer is that of any artist; it is to communicate a message and to delight the recipient whether that be the listener, the viewer or the reader… in this case the reader. Charles H. Norman has wonderfully delighted me. This is why I am in such awe of Norman, he is a creative genius and a visionary thinker that is also passionate and articulate and this, in my opinion, is a hard balance to find these days in the art of literature.

To summarize my thoughts on the charismatic novel that is The Fire in the Rock; I would say if you are a reader who Is tired of reading the same old books that are lackluster and forgettable then take a chance with this one because I promise you now that you will not be disappointed. It is a novel that has everything the reader would want in a read and so much more; it has spine-tingling good content, dynamic, memorable characters, a charismatic author that writes beautifully and wonderfully so and lastly it is an all-around, enjoyable, unforgettable read that you will not be disappointed if you choose to read it. My rating for this incredible book is Five Stars!
