Publisher's Summary

The apocalyptic saga continues in the exciting third volume of this best-selling series. In Nicolae, as the dramatic fulfillment of biblical prophecy is unleashed upon an astonished world, World War III begins. Although the small band of believers called Tribulation Force have been scattered by the outbreak of the war, they draw strength from their faith in Christ. Still working for Nicolae Carpathia, the evil world leader, Rayford Steele helps the believers by passing on information about Nicolae's devastating plans. But spiritual forces have an even greater use for Steele in their battle against the Antichrist.

The works of inspirational authors LaHaye and Jenkins have thrilled millions of readers worldwide, and Nicolae creates more breathtaking visions of what many believe will really happen. Through narrator Richard Ferrone's performance, the conflict builds to a fiery climax that will leave you eager for Soul Harvest, the next book in the series.

Great Read!

While the story surrounding the end-time events depicted in the Left Behind series is definitely extra-Biblical and fictionalized, the timeline of the events is based on the well-researched and Biblically accurate work of Dr. Tim LaHaye. Not all Christians will agree on the timeline and description of endtime events, but Dr. LaHaye's theological work on this subject is exhaustive and well-respected. The third installment in the series, Nicolae, continues the series with no reduction in Jenkins' mastery of dialogue and breathtaking suspense. As a side note, it always makes me giggle to see the psychopathic anti-faith ranting of pseudo-intellectual pinheads who try to minimize the seriousness of the issue of faith while hypocritically spending the time necessary to write an offensive and inane comment. If the issue of faith is that repugnant and idiotic to you, why bother? Go back to your mind-meld with Nietzsche and Richard Dawkins, and leave people of faith in peace.

Horrible Narration

What disappointed you about Nicolae?

Not to be stereotypical but they all sound like old jewish people. Love the series but narration is horrible.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nicolae?

Couldn't get past the voices.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The monotone narration and similarity of all the character voices.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment not in the story but the narration.

SIMPLY AWESOME

I've read the series except the last three books years ago. I enjoyed them then and love the experience even more now. Mr. Ferrone is an amazing narrator!

Digging in

Where does Nicolae rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would not. The only thing is that Nicolae is revealed in this book. Can't help but want him eliminated.

Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Awesome as usual

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wanted to jump in and join the force....

hard to belive...

... that there are people out there who take this stuff seriously. I like the series, not because this is a great writing, which it definitely is not, but because I'm interested in mass self-delusion and evangelical Christian conspiracy thinking. If this is your interest, this is a must-read. There is nothing "Christian" about the Left Behind series, just looney American-style Christian tribal paranoia - really a fun read if weren't for the fact that so many people actually are expecting the Rapture and the Tribulation, and are actively praying for it. Oh Lord, deliver us from evil masking as the righteous. Fascinating that the only interesting character in the series is Carpathia, the anti-Christ.
