Christian Author Writes A Thriller That Also Gives You Something To Ponder Regarding Creationism And Evolution.

I thoroughly enjoyed "Monster". First of all, the title reached out and grabbed me because I love anything that might give me a good scare. It had a little bit of everything mixed in. There was murder, intrigue, scary scientists, scary hairy monsters, mystery, and a ...
I thoroughly enjoyed "Monster". First of all, the title reached out and grabbed me because I love anything that might give me a good scare. It had a little bit of everything mixed in. There was murder, intrigue, scary scientists, scary hairy monsters, mystery, and a twist. If you enjoy reading about the Loch Ness Monster, Dracula, Werewolves, or Bigfoot, then you will enjoy this book. It's a thriller that also has a moral message.

ANTI-DARWINISM AT ITS WORST

Frank Peretti says ' I can't make a big scientific argument' and he's right. He cannot. I didn't know this book was pro-creationism, I just got it because I expected a suspenseful, scary story. Big disappointment. I finished the book and kept trying to enjoy it to no...
Frank Peretti says ' I can't make a big scientific argument' and he's right. He cannot. I didn't know this book was pro-creationism, I just got it because I expected a suspenseful, scary story. Big disappointment. I finished the book and kept trying to enjoy it to no avail. Instead of characters, I just found caricatures. The only ones to come as fully-developed were the 'monsters', the sasquatch-like creatures. And the storytelling was not up to my expectations. Unless, you're all for religious stances and care little about story and character development, go for it. Otherwise, don't bother.

    The plot started out well, then hints of religious input. Finall

    The plot started out well, then hints of religious input. Finally the author named all of the "monsters" Christian names and the whole thing fell apart. The word "Christian literature" should be included. I don't like religion pushed at me. and unexpectedly. One of the worst books I have read. I usually read good literature, and just wanted to read something fun for a change. Too bad as the plot began well.

    BAD SCIENCE AND WORSE WRITING

    Or maybe it's the other way around: bad writing and worse science. Frank Peretti admits he 'cannot make a big scientific argument' (his words, not mine) and I totally agree. The problem is he fails to scare or move with his bad story and his terrible story-telling. Don't bother.
