I give this author and book FIVE STARS for a well written End Times story! I thought that this book was well written and found hard to set down once one begins to read it! I I liked it all! I found it was quote a thrilling mystery in some casesbecause you didn't know what could happen next to these characters. These very situations could very readily happen to us all! even to us who may not be in some of these high positions as these characters in the book were. So, Beware! I recommend this book for Christians of every level of society! Even perhaps unbelievers may see what 's happening and see a need to get born again,too! Great work, Cliff! By Angela
WARNING: If you (any potential reader) dislike heavy-handed Christian fiction or dislike preachy political statements-- pass this one by. It's not for you. I'm disappointed: ~ book description does not state this is Christian fiction. On Amazon, if I scroll *all the way down* I see the site has taken the initiative to label this book in appropriate categories, including Christian fiction. I am a Christian, and I found the Christian themes to be heavy-handed. ~ Amateurish writing, poor editing, poor syntax, poor punctuation, overly long paragraphs. Where was the editor? ~ I've never read a book, short story, or fiction piece of any length that is as PREACHY and POLITICAL (healthcare bill/ "Obamacare") as this piece. These highly volatile subjects were not handled in a character's deep point of view....I felt the AUTHOR'S political statements come through loud and clear-- and I don't like it. ~ Dialogue is rough, awkward, stilted. No one talks that way, not now and not in the near future. ~ This short is apparently NOT a stand-alone read. I see other reviewers comment they enjoyed this short in conjunction with the rest of the End Times series....I'm apparently missing a great deal in this short format. Cannot recommend.
