    1. I m not exactly finished but I will be finishing this during my trip, so I m taking care of the paperwork now I ll try to remember to come edit this into a proper review when I get back at the end of November.But for now there will be a miracle at Lourdes The Virgin Mary will return and cure one person Who will that be The man from Chicago with bone cancer The high level Russian politico with muscular dystrophy The blind Italian actress Someone else I haven t met yet I read this book many years [...]

    2. The church announces the discovery of documents containing the secret prophecy of the Lady of Lourdes to St Bernadetteat the Virgin will reappear during a specific 8 day period Wallace takes us to Lourdes for these eight days and introduces us to a cast of characters drawn here for a variety of reasons Set against a detailed description one of the world s most popular pilgrimage sites, this is an exploration of the meaning and role of faith and science in people s lives Do miracles really occur [...]

    3. The book had been lying in and around bookshelves and cabinets in my house for very many years till the day i was thoroughly bored and having nothing better to read i finally took it up Not a very attractive story line, not a compelling read, not an unheard of tale either The miracle through its story and characters, describes the different relationships we as individuals share with God, our greatest fears and our deepest desires Be it Hinduism or Christianity or any other religion, faith varies [...]

    4. As an Orthodox Christian, I perceive this book a completion of the Book of Acts in the Holy Bible The book by no means advocates a point of view to believe or not to believe in miracles Yet, owing to its beautiful thrilling style, it leaves you with no clue what to expect will happen next The embodiment of the struggle of faith and science, religion and reason will never end And in this book, this dilemma has been tackled by Irving Wallace beautifully, skillfully, and tactfully he has managed to [...]

    5. As Irving Wallace revealed in his novel The Miracle heavenly or earthly intervention can come in many forms.As the faithful flock to Lourdes in hope of a visitation of the Virgin Mary or a cure from an incurable disease, others have their sights set on down to earth matters.The diverse group of characters in this book range from a desperate journalist looking for a big scoop to guarantee the advancement of her career, to an already cured woman and her greedy husband awaiting final confirmation [...]

    6. The book starts out with a reasonable premise Lourdes visionary Bernadette Soubirous actually did say she d heard her beautiful lady tell her three secrets which she never revealed And as a nun, she actually would have kept a journal of some sort In this story, Wallace postulates that Bernadette put her entire life story including the secrets in the journal and shipped the whole thing off to the Lagues family in nearby Bartres who actually had cared for her as an infant and later employed her as [...]

    7. Author Irving WallaceCharacters Bernadette, Liz Finch, Amanda Spencer, Ken Clayton, Sergi Tikhanov, Edith Moore, Mikel Hurtado, Natale Rinaldi, Gisele Dupree and others.Location Lourdes France Genre MythPLOT According to Secret journal kept by Bernadette Soubirious now Saint Bernadette , late in 1878, eighteen apparitions of the Virgin Mary were recorded by her, that she had seen and conversed with the Virgin, at the grotto called Massabielle in Lourdes Also Bernadette has mentioned in the journ [...]

    8. Great timeReadis long ago When I read Wallace I kn9w the characters are fictional but I still think they are real perfect blend of fiction and fact well researched but with wonderful story telling

    9. If ever the phrase It it what it is was called for, a review of The Miracle by Irving Wallace is the place Wallace, not known for literary pretension, wrote slightly smutty potboiler thrillers, and this is one of his successful efforts.And even though I prefer the Book of Lists People s Almanac type output of the Wallace Wallechinsky publishing clan, I can t fault this book for delivering what its author was famous for providing.A miniature Canterbury Tales roster of characters converge on the [...]

    10. I got this book at a book sale and was interested in it because I had read The Word sort of a DaVinci Code Gemini Contenders Robert Ludlum thriller regarding some surprising aspect of Christ s life This one concerns the appearances of the virgin Mary to Bernadette Sobrious in Lourdes in the mid 1800 s, with a modern twist indicating that she will again reappear in modern times well, the mid 80 s , and its effect on a number of characters in fact, this work is character driven with not a lot of a [...]

    11. Miracles, Faith, and human nature Now I would swear that I have read this book before Maybe one similar, who knows The catholic church has announced the Saint Bernadette wrote in her diary about the reappearance of the Virgin in Lourdes France during a particular time span The story centers around the people that gather hoping and praying for a miracle Natalie Renaldi a young actress that has lost her sight, Sergi Tickanov soviet minister looking trying to beat Muscular Dystrophy and Ken Clayton [...]

    12. Such a beautiful blending of Atheism, Theism, Hope faith, Science, and Fiction At places, I wondered if all the events really happened The author takes an unbiased stand that he neither shadows the reader with his theism, nor establishes Atheism The characterization, dialogues, plot, setting all were 100% realistic If you will ask me which my favourite book is, I sure will quote this.The plot was driven in a very streamlined manner with beautiful manoeuvring between different POVs The POV shuffl [...]

    13. The Virgin Mary entrusted Bernadette with three secrets She wrote down the secrets in her diary The first two are of no relevance but the third one states that in that year, the Virgin Mary will appear between August 14 and August 22 and will heal some lucky believer.The church released her secrets.Wallace, then, introduces the characters, interweaves their lives Some of the characters hope to see the Virgin while some hope to show Bernadette as a hallucinating adolescent for or less personal r [...]

    14. Este es el abuelo del Codigo Da Vinci y todo ese tipo de libros religiosos pol micos la verdad saldr a la luz basura que leen los gringos en vacaciones y despu s hacen pel cula.La premisa es interesante, hasta que la piensas dos segundos la Virgen ha anunciado su regreso a Lourdes y todo mundo quiere estar ahi, incluyendo terroristas de la ETA por qu alguien tiene que volar cosas y la Virgen apoya a la monarqu a o algo as Hay escenas er ticas forzadas, personajes cliches, giros dram ticos que so [...]

    15. Wasn t particularly impressed with this one I think the portrayal of the female protagonist as a helpless woman albeit blind and the instant falling in love after a steamy sexual coupling between the two main characters reflect the male author s ancient views perhaps still unenlightened in the 80s when this was written on gender relationships Granted, there were a couple of strong female characters, and the description of Lourdes and Bernadette s history was interesting.

    16. Arguments between 2 terrorists, the old story of the children who saw the virgin, and whether or not the bomber will succumb to romance are the interesting parts here The way Ken s issues get settled up is a nice twist, but overall, the book is slow and slightly boring I tried to avoid specificity Tell me if, as someone who has not read it, I included spoilers

    17. A captivating story of how people for different reasons, arrive at Lourdes Are they awaiting the promised miracle Are they there to expose the promise to be just a false hope The characters were interesting and varied Each one finally finds the answer he is seeking Well written by an author who is an excellent storyteller.

    18. Perfect combination of religion, intrigue, crime, politics and controversial journalism make this a complete novel All the protagonists are given enough space, and the story moves at a great pace Thoroughly enjoyable read.

    19. The many storylines are never hard to follow and and the contrary very interesting indeed The story develops into some cliches and the writing style of the author is quite distant and not really even journalistic so its hard to decipher his intentions.

    20. Mi aveva acchiappato la quarta di copertina leggendo che trattava di Bernadette, la veggente di Lourdes Invece il signor Wallace un narratore poco potente , il libro si fa leggere ma dopo qualche ora l ho bell e che dimenticato Voto sufficiente, nulla di pi

    21. While reading this novel, it sounded in my head as though Irving Wallace was trying to write a movie And what about the Soviet Premier

    22. This was okay but the story was very drawn out and I didn t really like the ending I wish I had to say about this book but frankly, I don t want ot devote any time or thought on it.

    23. Loved it While i dont believe in miracles this was so well written that it almost opened me to the possibility

    24. I really liked the pace of this book until the ending It seemed rushed and incomplete to me Not a bad summer read though Easy to put down and pick up again.

    25. According to me one of the better not read books by Wallace Either he is not writing well enough or my Wallace phase is over.
