More About This Book

Overview

All across the world, people suddenly vanish in the blink of an eye. From their cars during the rush hour commute. From the shopping malls. Their homes. Their beds. Even from the arms of their loved ones. Airline pilots. World leaders. Teachers. Parents. Children.

Gone.

Steve, Charlie and Frank were just trying to get home when it happened. Now they find themselves left behind, and wishing they'd disappeared, too. Trapped in the ultimate traffic jam, they watch as civilization collapses, claiming the souls of those around them. God has called his faithful home, but the invitations for Steve, Charlie and Frank got lost. Now they must set off on foot through a nightmarish post-apocalyptic landscape in search of answers. In search of God. In search of their loved ones. And in search of home.

    Keene's Tale of the Rapture

    Brian Keene never ceases to amaze. TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME is typical Keene, simple, honest and in your face. It is a story of the Rapture as seen through they eyes of Brian Keene and as you may imagine this is anything but a Christian LEFT BEHIND take on the subject. Fear not, Keene treats the subject with respect and honesty, there are no cheap punches.

    What comes out is the snapshot of the Rapture as it happens along a stretch of a Maryland interstate highway. As the protaganist makes his journey along the highway we see snippets of human behavior as the author envisions humanity would act is sitautions. The best and worst of human nature, and with Keene at the helm it leans toward the worst. Untypical of Keene however is an ending that does lend a certain amount of hope yet still with that signature dismal state of things where it leaves off.

    The subject of religion of course can not go untouched in a story of this nature. Keene presents the stated 'facts' of the Rapture trying not to pervert the scripture. You find all the major points are there and maybe even learn about a thing or two you may not have been aware of. Where Keene's own views on the dogmatic nature of the Rapture are presented he does so with fair and balanced arguments. In fact it's safe to say there is no concrete point of view that is argued for.

    If your disappointed the rapture didn't come, pick up this book and live it vicariously through the sharp mind of Brian Keene.

    A page turner

    This book kept me entranced, following every page. It was sad for me that the stories strict Christian code was off-putting. It would have made the story better to me. This is not the authors fault of course and perhaps he should be applauded for making my Catholic guilt pop up after 12 years. In the end the story was exciting if not just a little depressing.

    Felt unfinished

    Lacked polish and there was really no ending. Not a bad story but not a very good one either.

    A little lacking in the edges

    It is kinda good actually but it lacks some points to make it more exciting. The characters a little bit dull but likable.
