    "Fun if you accept it for what it is..."

    ...which is a rather poor attempt at fiction, with characters you don't care about, interspersed with sermons. In time this could be a historical document of a particular brand of fundamentalist theology. Anyway, it's utter rubbish, but the one redeeming feature is the narrator. Struggling to bring the book alive, his tone is immensely serious, and he manages to out-do Dick Van Dyke in the 'worst cockney accent attempted by an American' category (the taxi driver).

    Not sure I'm happy I've wasted my book allowance on this, but probably worth listenting to just so you know what the whole 'left behind' experience is about.

    "Entertaining, thought provoking, controversial"

    I will try and actually review the book, as opposed to providing my interpretation of the author's brand of Christianity.

    It is not the best written book. The prose is interesting enough, but a little heavy handed at times. It is, however, thought provoking to be sure.

    It is clear that the authors are "born-again." This is only a problem so much as knowing that Michael Moore is a "Marxist-Liberal". Since you know that going in, if you are open-minded, you will enjoy the book(s) that much more.

    If you are at all interested in the book of "Revelations" from the New Testament, then these fictionalized accounts of the predicted end-times may spawn further, more tangible, investigations. These books on their own should be considered nothing more than entertainment -- which many, including myself, have found them to be.

    Bottom Line: Mediocre writing aside, these books might get you thinking, might make you mad, may make you want to do further investigation, may even have you question your relationship to your creator.... I think these things are some attributes of the best of all books -- written well or not.

    "Pulp Christian fiction"

    Well, this book was written to the level of the lowest denominator of reader. It had potential, starting with a great subject. Of course, this is a fictionalization of what the end times prophesied in the NT Bible will be like. Moreover, it is a portrayal held by a portion of Christians, not at all an ecumenical in scope. Of these prophesies, this is just one amongst a plethora of interpretations. This is one mans fictionalized, fleshed out story for the common masses. It is not great or even good literature. It's just entertaining enough for readers who have the attention span of typical modern Americans. For any serious reader, it will be a BORE! If you are interested in pulp Bible prophesies, this is the book series for you.

    "Very very thought provoking"

    This was the best combination of suspense thriller, action novel, love story, and Christian testimonial I've ever read! Great spin and very inspiring. A must-read for true believers or anyone who is interested in biblical prophecy and how it all might unfold.

    "Should have been Left Behind"

    Simple, Predictable, Lacked imagination and development of non christian explanations of the rapture. Didn't provoke any thoghts for me, left me wanting for a good discussion between the christian and an alternative cause.

    "Biblical accuracy and literary excellence."

    This book, as well as all the books of the Left Behind Series, is exceptionally written and appeals to the broadest of audiences. The story is intriguing and enjoyable and its theology is Biblically square. Each book in the series gives a clear and personal presentation of the Gospel. LaHaye and Jenkins have done an exceptional job of bringing a solid Christian presence to consumer literature.

    "An interesting but dangerous portrayal"

    I enjoyed this attempt to portray the Biblical End of Days and Second Coming, and even the internal conflict of the characters, while blatant, is an honest attempt to deal with the internal struggles of man. However, it worries me that the focus on the end of the world invites a "just in case" faith where people follow the teachings of the Bible just in case it is the key to salvation, when in fact there is much more to faith. Should be read for entertainment, not to find faith.

    "This story is Great! The narrator? ... not so much"
    If you could sum up Left Behind in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping, thought provoking, revelational


    Did Frank Muller do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No. His reading is far too dramatic and theatrical. It really is very distracting. The writing and the content gets an a plus. I was very please to find the next book in the series is narrated by someone else. I will be aiming to avoid further Frank Mullers narrations.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I very easily could have. It was not very long and it was rivetting. If the narrator was different I mean.

    "Excellent title!"

    This is the first audio book I have ever listened to. What an engaging story! Christians should find this convicting while non-Christians will hopefully find it thought-provoking. The narrator is excellent. My only complaint (and it's not a big one) is that it turned out to be the 3-hour abridged version (as compared to the 11-hour unabridged version.) Apparantly, unless specified otherwise, ALL in this series are the abridged versions. Still, I highly recommend this!
