Not as Good
I have read the entire Left Behind series, and always was very impresse with the level of writing and the details in the stories, but in this book I found many things unbelievable. such as high speed internet as Carpathia as a child, I dont believe it to be accurate. Overall a good story but not up the same quality as the others.

Good book, reader not so great
The book and the storyline are very good, but the man reading the book is a little boring. It is easy to loose concentration with this reader. It might be better to read the book for yourself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I really enjoyed the original series starting with Left Behind. This really helped explain how Nicholai came into being. Although fiction, it really makes you take inventory of your beliefs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Trying to get blood from a turnip.
When I heard that there was a prequel and epilogue I thought that the story would be pretty good. Yet the whole story from the get go was pretty lame. I mean Carpathia as a child was a real brat, already knowing that he had power and acting like so. Yet at the beginning of the whole series, Carpathia is a real nice guy. Even behind the scenes. Rayford is made to look even worse as dumb jock. It seems that Lahaye & Jenkins are just writing anything, because they are under contract on the Left Behind series. The series it self was made longer than needed be. When the epilouge comes out I hope it's a little better.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Jenkins Best Writing in LB
I found this book to be very captivating with many literary twists and turns, some of Jenkins best writing to date. The scenarios in this book are more consistent with real life events and not as sanitized as the other Left Behind Books. One downfall is the use of new vocabulary words in italics. One of the problems with the later books in LB was the 'dumbing down' of his writing, and the vocab words just add to that sense as they are explained in the next sentence. This is not used in normal language and the use of these new words drag the reading level to a 5th grade capacity in some places of the book. However, I do find this book worthy of 5 stars for the excellent writing overall. I found it to be more realistic than other LB books and I enjoyed the book thoroughly. I'm looking forward to the next book in this trilogy as I devoured this one in 2 days. It's going to be hard to wait until November for the next installment. Another caveat though, I'd highly urge parents of preteens to read the books first as this book deals with more sexual topics and alcohol use than the other books. This is what made these books more realistic with unsaved teen and adult behaviors. This is definitely for a mature audience and different from the other LB books. Good job and keep up the great work, Mr. Jenkins! If the next two books are as good as this one, this trilogy will be in a class by itself!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
