For more than fifty years, legendary author Herman Wouk has dreamed of writing a novel about the life of Moses. Finally, at age 97, he has found an ingeniously witty way to tell the tale in The Lawgiver, a romantic and suspenseful epistolary novel about a group of people trying to make a movie about Moses in the present day. The story emerges from letters, memos, emails, journals, news articles, recorded talk, tweets, Skype transcripts, and text messages.

Interesting structure -interesting that at 96 he wrote this book. Light and enjoyable.

The author wrote this novel when he was 96; he doesn't show any sign of dementia in the way he writes; he seems up-to-date on modern technology. The novel is a gentle satire of the movie industry, lawyers, and venture capitalists. There are many twists and turns in the plot, which weaves together the stories of different characters. It is not a heavy read, but smooth and interesting.
