I've heard so many rave about this series, I decided to try it out. This book was pretty slow for me. I'll likely read other books in the series but not in the near future.
Narrator makes all the men sound like 70 year old midwesterners, and all the women sound like little children. Ruins it. will try the other books with other narrators
in the 99th percentile, due to the subject matter
yes. i considered it fictionalized non-fiction so it was like a glimpse of a probable future
i cried a few times
i imagine that responses to the book are very polarized, since fundamental Christianity is becoming increasingly unpopular in society
Listened to this because friend's book club read it and his "review" was interesting mainly because he didn't know much about the religious background. Well either did I and I have to say the beginning of the book was fantastic...if only it were sci-fi instead of religious.
I love reading and I really love Audible. I'm a Grants Administrator at a university with a very long commute in everyday. Audible helps me pass the time and helps me enjoy my favorite pastime.
Entertaining. Engaging. Complex.
It is entertainingly complex as it tries to paint a contemporary picture of what the Bible described thousands of years ago.
His voice gives just the right amount of emotion for each character.
Bruce, the pastor.
I like this one because it is the print version. I am not crazy about the dramatized version.
In this book I would have to say Bruce.
Don't get Left Behind and if you do.......fight for your soul.
I love this series and these audios are better than the dramatized audios.
I am currently studying to become a pastor and I had heard of this book from many followers of Christ. Therefore, I decided to pick it up! Unfortunately, the plot was very bland. More or less, there is a lot of talking among the characters and talking about characters...very little doing of anything (watch out for the classic cheesy dialogue...it's distracting). If the characters were more developed with interesting personalities perhaps I would have enjoyed this book more. However, several of the characters are similar to one another and lack the feeling of being "real" (some of their conversion moments really lack the emotion and depth that needs to be there to draw the reader in).
For a book about Revelations, I expected something more.
The story itself was the best part of this audio experience. I could imagine myself experiencing emotions the characters did such as fear, loneliness, anger, and the willingness to fight back. If you haven't accepted Christ into your life, this book will help you understand more about Him. It explains that we have a choice, and that choice is a gift.
I can't really compare this book to any other that I've read.
I don't think it was Jack's fault, but the audio quality wasn't good. I could hear his voice repeating in the background which made it sound like people were talking all around him at times and I could hear page turns. There was also a point in the book where he repeated a whole paragraph - it wasn't my player as the whole section was read differently (sound quality). You could always tell when he broke between readings as his voice would be louder/softer. I do feel like it could have been better read by someone else.
The moment when Cameron (Buck) Williams prays and asks God for protection and guidance.
I'm new to Audible and this was my second book. My next book will be the second book in this "Left Behind" series.
Not better but just as good and I've read the series three times!
Either Rayford or Buck...
That would be nice but who has that kind of time.
Would definitely recommend this series! Well read.
