Selective? Well, yes for me it was hard going and I failed to finish the book. More like pulp fiction with a science fiction theme. What will happen if the world ends in 2012 or any other time for that matter? Before it does, will select groups organise a sanctuary for themselves and ignore the rest of the poor people? Is there a group of people who are psychic and have advanced powers who wil be able to change everything if the end of time or the world is upon us? I do not think they will be in a psychiatric hospital and subjected to drugs etc so their powers will only emerge when necessary. I am unhappy reading about psychiatric manipulation of the brain and mental illness. It is not pleasurable to read and caused me a lot of tension for some reason. I did not enjoy the style either so the book was discarded. Sorry to Whitley Streiber as some of his earlier work was good but this is just weird.
