As a non-religious person I knew very little about the Christian beliefs concerning the 'Rapture' and 'Christ's Second Coming'. I also felt a series based in religion would hold very little interest for me. How wrong I was!!! The books are fast paced, exciting and real page turners. The characters are believable and you find yourself immersed in their stories, wanting them to survive. I also learnt a huge amount and found myself considering what the Bible foretells, wondering if there actually is some truth to it. The 'Left Behind' series commanded my interest, fascinated me and changed my perspective on religion. I would recommend this series to believers and to those who may be sceptical (like I was) but who are willing to approach this with an open mind and a preparedness to be taught something as well as enjoying a fascinating read. Excellent series and extremely talented authors who know what they're talking about.

If you take this series (including this 1st book) as a Christian fiction series and don't then base your entire theology on it, it is an excellent series. The fact is, no-one knows exactly what the end will be like. We don't have all the details. This book presents one way that it could happen.

I like the characters. Throughout the series, I felt like I got to know them and came to love them. It gets quite emotional in places and I like to feel drawn into a story and feel it with the characters.

I was particularly happy that I found this book as a free Kindle promo. I bought the later books in the series in hardback after borrowing the early ones as a poor student. I might now buy the whole series for Kindle.

Format: Paperback
Here is a book that can be hysterically funny, if you don't try to take it seriously and rather consider it as an excellent example of how NOT to write books. I was laughing from the beginning to the end. Below, you will find some of the best jokes, but before that one important PRECISION: I actually am a Christian and I have no doubt that one day Jesus Christ WILL come a second time, to judge the living and dead. I am however certain that the real Last Days and Second Coming will be both terrible AND glorious events - not a mixture of a disaster B movie and a bad burlesque show...

And now let's see the jokes:

1. The Antichrist is a Romanian named Nicholae (!) Carpathia (!!). Not even at the end of the world the authors could find anything better, than to take Nicolae Ceauscescu, the late dictator of Romania, who was calling himself "The Genius of the Carpatian Mountains", and a certain vampire from Carpathian mountains and give him the leading role..)))

2. The catholics are of course doomed and destined to hell, but political correctness (or maybe some weakness of the faith from the authors?) asked that at least the pope be spared.

3. The tool of the Satan on Earth is ... the United Nations! That means probably the most powerless player in the world politics!!

4. The main hero is separated from his beloved family because he is a sinner. Rather than try to repent to join them in the Paradise once the tribulation is over (that is what I would do - but after all I am just a Papist destined to hell...) he quickly marries again! Guess there will be some conjugual argument once the Final Judgement is over - and maybe Jesus will have to settle a painful divorce after that! So maybe the Final Judgement is finally not so final?

I read this book sometime ago and couldn't put it down, but be warned there are 14 books in the series and once you start you have to keep going. They have to be read in order to follow the story. Highly recommend. Even if you don't hold to the authors theological view points they are just a great read

If you're a believer (and if not, why would you read it?) then you'll probably enjoy it to some degree - I've read the entire series and enjoyed it but this book annoyed me the most. The writing is weak at best, the characters are very cliched in parts and pretty unrealistic. For example the British characters although minor, say things and use expressions that British people simply don't say (except in American films). One of the characters, Buck, speaks to someone from Scotland Yard and in stereotypical fashion is called 'Nigel' and is very snooty. I've lived in the UK for all my 37 years and I don't know anyone called Nigel. It's a shame because otherwise the story is pretty good.

I am so looking forward to reading the rest of the series and being with the characters for a long time. Interesting topic, using Revelations, a subject I know from being a Catholic school boy but certainly don't read it now. Read while commuting, perfect for that!

Format: Paperback
For me, the novel failed to deliver the apocalyptic flavour I was looking for. Millions of people go missing in an instant and you get only 2 dozen or so pages that explore the resulting catastrophe. I wanted more and think this was a missed opportunity.

Although interesting, at times I felt like the novel and religous theme was a little too preachy. Dialogue and relationships were sometimes too dreamy and unrealistic, limited only to key characters. I needed to get a world wide sense of what others were thinking.

I liked the concept of a Rapture and would recommend this book to those people in search of a belief system or just simply wanting to understand a little more about the second coming of Christ rise of the Anti-Christ. You might just be better off watching The Omen series.

Finally, on 2 counts be warned :

1. This book is part of a series.

AND

2. Don't look at the back of this book, as you will most probably spoil a little bit of the plot by reading the reviews of the subsequent titles.
