Same subject as the Left Behind series, less biblical quotes and prayer but still wonderful. I cannot wait for the 5th book to come out!
Wasn't what I thought it would be.
Paulette really liked it. It makes you think.
This book is the first in a series. It is an end-times scenario - this one written from the Christian understanding of a "pre-millenial rapture of the believing Church", which takes place very early in this volume and then continues on to start tracking the events happening to the "left behind".
The book ranges around the world but most of the main characters are located in the USA. The author has several story-lines and moves from one set of characters to another with ease.
The book is a quick read and personally, I look forward to reading the next in the series.
If you enjoy books similar to the books written by T. LaHaye and J. Jenkins...you will enjoy this.
I really enjoyed this book. I had read it years ago, lent out my copy of it to someone who never returned it, so I decided to obtain a copy of the audio book. My husband and I both enjoy audio books in the evening...and this one was not a disappointment.
My husband sometimes doesn't enjoy reading the books I do because their "details are off" or some of the writing is "sappy". But this book, he too enjoyed. So men, don't be afraid to read it! :)
Without giving away the storyline of the book, it starts our looking at different character's lives before the Rapture occurs, and then the Rapture occurs towards the end of the book. Book 2 picks up with the same characters trying to scramble to get their lives together after their loved ones are missing.
Really great reading!
