This books begins to open your mind with regards to religion its fullfillness.
Buck Williams. His go get'em attitude.
Great character reading.
An excellent introduction to the Left Behind series. Once I got hooked, with in the first two books in the series, I kept investing in the series until I completed it.
No favorites stuck out, but the character studies present made many of the characters entertaining and worthy of my cheering their survival.
I think without the fun voices and emotions expressed I would have been hard pressed to finish such a lengthy series. Better in audio than paper.
Are you ready for the end?
It starts off a little slow but that is because key people have to be introduced so be patient it gets better.
The everday people that attend church and think they are saved but sadly to say are not. It takes more than just going to church, it takes a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
Blind, Oiless and have no Clue
I didn't realise that this book was based upon Christian beliefs - not that there's anything wrong with that - I just don't want to listen or read about it.
depends on the content
characters seemed good
It could be made into a movie but it would be quite a targeted audience.
first of all, if you believe in creation, even in the least, you may feel judges by this book, which supposedly ( Christians shouldn't judge), I am not a atheist by any means, I believe each to their own and it all boils down to hope and faith!!! No matter how you loud at it, but I just couldn’t get into this series, and yes I read the whole first book.
But on the contrary if you believe in the traditional bible and feel the 'rapture' is certainly to come then, yes you may appreciate this concept of the interpretation of this series.
I like read Left Behind Series and Mystery
Audio is Great

Not sure. Maybe "This Present Darkness".
He's too old. And I'm not saying I know his age or that the elderly can't read out loud. It's just that the books characters have a fairly wide age range and his age really comes out in his voice. He makes a 20 year old college girl sound elderly.
That's hard because I don't feel that a scene cut would make the story better. It needs a hard core rewrite.
The big problem is that the authors lack the technical skill to take subject matter this heavy (biblical prophecy) and weave a griping political thriller into it. It all just moves too fast and you don't really get a sense of how scary an event like that would really be. It reads like a young adult novel except that they suffer from a common problem, at their age, they just can't connect to youthful characters. In the book, much of Chloe's dialogue does not come off as natural or typical for someone in her age or social group. And frankly, I feel disconnected from every character in that story. They all seem shallow and not quite real. You would think, between two authors, they could come up with at least one truly sympathetic character that reads like a real person. If this is the technical writing skill that goes into each of the books in this series, I don't think I have the patience for it. One and done.
I should have listened to the bad reviews, Oh, why didn't I listen!?
Narrator--pretty awful. Female characters especially bad, almost funny. Like when a teenage boy dresses up as a girl and does "that voice".
Characters--flat. Very generic. From a Lifetime movie.
Premise--interesting. That is why I bought it. But it is so poorly researched on the scientific end that his goal (to make me see the light) actually backfired because of how unfairly matched the arguments were. I am all for keeping an open mind and having it changed but not by a zealot with nothing more than his own faith. And NOT during what was supposed to be a novel. This was a Christain infomercial.
Writing--oh, Jesus. It is bad.
Story--here is where is gets interesting. The book starts off okay with an interesting event--tons of people disappearing--but quickly devolves. In the end, it is a very thinly veiled attempt at Christian propaganda where the author must have thought he was writing to adults with the intellectual capacity of children. Some of the writing is like a wizened prophet speaking to idiot sinners (that is you and me, by the way). It is almost insulting but I know he believes in his message and was probably just not given the gift of the written word so that is fine. I know he meant no intentional offense. That being said, there are so many points where I started laughing because of how obvious it was that he was trying to make us "see the light". Once it is clear what he is up to, the rest of the story is about the characters' journey at coming around to the truth of Jesus and the story and side plot (which was the only kind of interesting thing going on) become secondary.
If you are already a True Believer, go on and get this book. It will make you feel all fuzzy and warm that you will be saved, too. If you are not, this book was just plain laughably bad.
