Generally a very good book. He really paints people involved in science in colorful way and his own exploits are always entertaining. A little bit of repetitition from time to time in the various speeches but not too bad. I would agree with another reviewer that his development of arguments on education on religion certainly were not as convincing as his home turf science.
In general christians unconciously (or not) tend to imagine some of the less than pleasant scenes (future or past) in the bible not actually taking place being. This book makes an effort to present one possible interpretation of the end times as a real life situation and has you think how would you deal with it. This is obviously a challenge for the authors but they do a pretty good job.
Whether the actual interpretation is correct (pre-trib / post-trib etc) is probably less important than :
1. It makes you think about the whole issue
2. It is a good clean adventure story
3. It will likely leave you wondering what will happend next (and ready to buy the next one in the series).
It is the first christian tradition based fiction I have read and I certainly enjoyed it.
Probably the best part of the book is its attempt to describe in some way what it might be like to find parts of your family disappeared in the rapture and you were "left behind".
No particular complaints about the narration.
This book takes an interesting look at world history through the perspective of salt. I would never have believed there was so much documented history of salt.
The narration was very good
The book itself though not rivetting was a very interesting material. It has certainly changed my view of salt vs history permanently.
I found this book kept me hooked till the end. A very clever story which though complex held together well.
