    Terrific but you need to read all three!

    This book won't make much sense if you don't read the trilogy starting with Strangers and Soujourners and ending with Eclipse of the Sun. Plague Journal is the second book. The three books are a frightening portrayal of where the Western world is headed as it embraces relativism where nothing is right or wrong, everything is relative, and political correctness allows the government to obtain total control of its citizenry. At first you feel that it can't happen here. Then you realize it has already started! Impossible to put down once you start reading.

    Good essays

    If you aare looking for a book of short essays on the evils of socialism and social engineering with parables thrown in, then great book. If looking for an adventure of a falsely accused man on the run from a dictatordhip to save his children, then sorry, look elsewhere. The main character is in just that situation, but spends all of ten minutes thinking of how to protect his kids as he daydreams for hours on the social environment that set them up to be framed. I feel my rating is generous.

    Credible

    In the apocalyptic genre, this contribution doesn't dwell in the fantastical, but the plausible. The author lays out a scarily possible scenario of the present as the stage for the beginning of the end. It causes a critical appraisal of the present in light of the end. He also demonstrates a tremendous gift for the language and for narrative.

    Wow 'Left Behind' is left behind!

    Magnificent wordsmithing. Literate and insightful without pretension. The Plague in the title is the poison of modern culture. O¿Brien does not make the mistakes of refusing to see evil for what it is or of creating a shallow story of man-takes-on-City-Hall-and-wins. Rather he describes the pain and joy of a Christian father¿s struggle against the troubles and traumas of the world as it is. Thought provoking and at the same time hopeful in the best sense of the word.
