Still a great read!

I read this book when it was first published, on the recommendation of a friend. Although a bit rough to get into, after page 75, it takes off & I didn't want to put it down. The three main characters set up the scenario for me to decide where I was in my belief system...
I read this book when it was first published, on the recommendation of a friend. Although a bit rough to get into, after page 75, it takes off & I didn't want to put it down. The three main characters set up the scenario for me to decide where I was in my belief system, and by the end of the book, my faith became better grounded & my view of Heaven & eternity more important. The fact that Alcorn includes a kind of "apology" in the back explaining that his fictional accounts were based on scripture, helped me to use my imagination to think about what my view of what Heaven would be like! Since reading this book, I've purchased over 10 copies & given them away to friends & even a pastor. For someone who LOVES mystery who-done-its w/ a focus on the earthly & the spiritual, this is a must-read! It will change your focus, choices & your life.

Not impressed

I finished reading Deadline only by forcing myself. This book is mostly the authors opinions on abortions, AIDs, and homosexuality with a poorly authored plot around it. I will not be able to force myself to read Dominion.

    Flimsy plot used to cover author's "spiritual" beliefs

    The book as so slow moving and so filled with the author's belief system that the plot suffered terribly. I could barely force myself to finish it.

    I'm glad deleting it was so easy.

    Confusing mess

    Book became so convoluted and confusing I kept getting lost. No need for a spoiler because the story goes everywhere. I just gave up. Wish I could have given it no stars.

    Not For Mystery Lovers

    I bought this book for the mystery I expected from the synopsis. This book is not a mystery, but a treatise on the author's beliefs. I will make sure next time I look at the author bio as well as the synopsis. I don't believe a third of the book deals with the mystery. I have no problem with the writing, but the summary should not mislead people as to what the story is all about. If you want to read about abortion, the author's vision of Heaven and other Christian Right points of view, this is the book for you. I feel mislead and tricked.
