...the hard way. Victor believes intelligence equals or surpasses wisdom. The story is a well written and very immaginative depictiin of what led the growing intellect, but lacking a moral compass, to tragedy.
Stephen King is as always an excellent storyteller he could even make u feel sympathy 4 the devil.
It was a compelling story&an interesting idea.
But as always S. K. injects his political ideology&anti-religeous bias into his works, which is his right. But you don't have a right to ur own facts.
He laments our times, while lauding the past, yet refuses to acknowledge who's policies led us here, he laments the racism of the past, yet again fails to acknowldge who's policies supported that issue, and attacks, wh chaacter assassination , the very people who made that era better.
...at a time when another religion of peace is actually murdering, and/or raping men, women, and children, i can't imagine why i would want to give my time or $$$ to an author slandering some of the very people mosttargeted for abuse. I'm asking for a refund, and i urge my neighbors to warn others about bigotry in other books.
Why Boy Scouts, if ur going to make them out lto be ike boys from a government refotm school? That senario eould be more credible since two boyswere seriously messed up in their heads even b4 the troubles began.
Story is inly possible wh a real American president...I fear our president would rather fire on Isreal b4 he'd ever launch against an Islamic nation.
It's a well thought out fictional account of possible future events. There were only a few oh c'mon moments. The love story is a sweet 20 something romance,and a a little touching too. The scriptural revelations were very interesting. The Christian conversions were a little churchy, but unless yoir offended by Christianity, it's a very good read.
Read it and u will see what I mean. My impressions are that the author builds a tense& somewhat creepy atmosphere, and characters are at least 3-D. U do feel something for their struggles. You could say this story is about 4 naive 60's liberals getting scared somewhat straighter.
A tedious tale of predictable events& cliched people...I mean are there no other abusers of women&children left in the world besides Christians?? ...perverse musicians
that travel to Bankock maybe, or creepy senators who support NAMBLA???...Dictators&dictator wanna-bees??...zealots from that other religion of peace??...what about good old fashioned Satanists?? And why does some creepy little man only brave enough to abuse children die and suddenly become infused with superpowers? In life the Captain of the Chess club could mop the floor wh him...I ask you?
I havent even finished, but the build up is great. Lots of tension and intrigue. Ever wonder what would happen if one of those GHOST HUNTERS organization ever actuslly ran into the REAL THING?
Basically Evil Bible thumping Greenie-Weenies seek to destroy the world. Try to imagine how idiotic a tale of Mad Hindus would seem, yet we are sold over and over in our culture the story that a people whose PRIMARY beliefs are Love their God and their neighbor seek the mass destruction of others. I know for certain that last time we met at my church in the Billions of dollars Bunker we like to sarcastically call THE HIVE, we agreed to put a new roof on our wee church, fix the heat/ac, and feed the poor.
Never mind that there is a religion of peace that publically declares a desire to bath the world in the blood of millons so that their messiah may return and their martyrs may recieve their 72 virginal rewards...maybe its just easier to kick sand in the face of a religion that turns the other cheek, instead of cutting your head off.
