Publisher's Summary

First they were Left Behind. Then they formed the Tribulation Force. Now they must face Nicolae. Here is the most explosive of the three books thus far, the seven-year tribulation is nearing the end of its first quarter, when prophecy says that "the wrath of the lamb" will be poured out upon the earth. Rayford Steele becomes the ears of the tribulation saints at the highest levels of the Carpathia regime. Meanwhile, Buck Williams attempts a dramatic all-night rescue run from Israel through the Sinai that will hold you breathless to the end.

Bad reading

The book is rated 5 stars: all books in this series are in my opinion. The 2 star deduction is for the reader. The first thing that got on my nerves is that he pronounces Carpathia: car-path-ee-ah instead of car-pay-thee-ah. I was willing to see past that, but he has a serious problem with defining proper character voices. In this reader's version, Carpathia has the voice of an effeminate old man. Buck has the voice of a gruff man in his 50s, Rayford sounds pretty much like the reader himself, Chloe sounds flighty, and Rosensweig doesn't sound even a little bit like a new york Jew, let alone an Israelite! Oh, and Zion is prounced sea-on by this reader. (i'm sorry if I've misspelled names, but I'm writing this in a rush!)

I'm only about 4 hours into the book, but I have half a mind to rebuy the book by the better reader (Richard Ferrone) - much better at character definition. Unfortunately i decided from the preview clip that i liked this guy better and bought books 3-6 with him already!

I don't mean to sound so rude, but when you pay this much for an audio book, you expect to enjoy all aspects of the book, not just the writing (which I emphasize is great!).

Good Book....Bad Narrator

The narration is so bad it is very distracting. Wish I could get Ferrone version still. Looks like I will be reading the rest of the series on my Kindle.

Please re-record it without the impersonations!!!!

What did you like best about this story?

It's clever, intense, very well written, imaginative and insightful. It honors the message of the Bible.

How could the performance have been better?

PLEASE! PLEASE!! Why impersonations???!!! Especially THESE??? No woman talks like that! Believe me! It's as if I, a woman, was trying to talk like Terminator and insisted that this is Average Joe's voice! No one would buy that!And the Hebrew accent is a caricature... And what was that Hispanic accent that turned out Swiss-German after 3 lines???! :( Buck sounds more manly than Rayford and constantly angry, when he's actually way younger than him and kind. Chloe sounds extremely stupid when she's actually smart and assertive. And Nicolae's voice sounds like hers!...No, no, no...The narrator's normal voice is very good.I understand the thought behind adding impersonations to the reading: it's SUPPOSED to help the listener understand what's going on and get more into the story... but NOT like this!!!No one noticed before publishing this audio book??!!!Please, RE-RECORD THE SERIES without these impersonations (with none at all or real ones), and allow those who bought this version to swap it for the good one.

Emotional story for the believer!

The story was incredible! But the performance in editing are incredibly distracting. The author looks away from the microphone several times and you can hear someone scribbling or scratching paper throughout the performance.

love it!!

this is my second time listening to this audiobook series and I love it just as much the second time as I did the first. Yes there is often background noise and sometimes Jack doesn't execute a perfect performance. But...he still does one heck of a job. Tim and Jerry are simply miracle workers. What a wonderful story. you truly come to love the characters and root for them as the journey through the rapture. If I had to pick one word for these books as well as Jack's reading it would be "beautiful"!

Just as good as 1 & 2

I've read 1-3 and they have all been captivating. This book starts a little slow, but finally takes off near the middle. The last quarter of the book is particularly riviting. The only gripe I might have is the voice of Tsian Ben Judah. He sounds like an old lady, though we already know he is a man only in his 40's. That's not enough to reduce what deserves an excellent rating.

Awesome series!

Great series from a human concept of the house and times taken from the book of Revelation. While the dramatisation is fiction, the basis (the judgement, the rapture and the Antichrist) is not.
