The Reviews Are In

In Uncategorized on December 4, 2009 at 7:28 pm

This month, Pittsburgh Magazine printed a flattering review of my book, The Iron Mountain, and I couldn’t be happier. Although it’s too late to insert these kind words on the cover, here’s what critic C.J. Lyons had to say about the book:

“Unlike most young men his age, 30-year-old Robert Isenberg has an incredible desire to understand and reconnect with the roots of his family tree. The Iron Mountain showcases his skills as an expert researcher and amateur historian. What’s most intriguing about The Iron Mountain is the way Isenberg manages to simultaneously tell two parallel narratives: one that documents his trek and another that describes (in much detail) the final days of von Isenberg. In the end, this is more than a typical story of one man’s journey for self-discovery. The Iron Mountain is also part history, part travelogue and part fiction. It’s a quality read for anyone interested in historical fiction, genealogy and Germany.”

How about a holiday gift?
