I was more impatient to finish this book and actually found myself fast-forwarding a few sections. I loved the first book and think the storyline is great.
The author is writing about things he clearly doesn't understand, such as blended families. So sometimes he gets into directions that don't work or fails to arrive to the natural conclusion. You could say some of it is necessary for his story line timing but other times it's bad writing.
Author keeps putting lengthy flash-backs smack in front of key story line events in order to develop characters.
Some characters repeatedly admonish themselves word-for-word the same way. This poor writing is aggravating.
I clearly get the feeling 'Left Behind' established a recipe and this series is simply trying to cash-in on that recipe.

I like this series even more than the original Left Behind Series. I'm becoming quite intrigued by the different scenarios that are developing. I'm hoping the entire series is on audio. The narrator is excellent. Narration always provides an extra richness and depth to an outstanding novel.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two Left Behind Apocalypse audio books. I have listened to them both twice because I enjoy them so much. I am, however, very disappointed that the last two books in the series are not on audio. I have a difficult time reading books due to a health problem so I can only listen to books on audio:( I did buy the last two paperback books in the series and I am really going to try to read them. I have to know what happens in the last two books!
The whole book only advances a couple of days, my goodness he needs to have a better follow up that this. And I wish the characters would stop talking to themselves after every sentence. I would have thrown this across the room if I was reading it.

Excellent continuation of the Apocalypse series. I can't wait for the next part to find out how Goose and his family will fair. It really works great with listening to it right after hearing/reading the Left Behind series. Excellent book
Pretty well written - not a clancy, but keeps you on the edge, it starts to put the pieces together from the first title in the series and definitely makes you impatient for the next one.
