A "couldn't put it down because it made me think" novel.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Father Elijah: An Apocalypse (Paperback)
Because of its true-to-life characters and relevance to the state of the world today, "Fr. Elijah" was hard to put down. My only disappointment was that when the book was over, the story wasn't. The book, however, is complete and can be read with no prior knowledge of the author and his works.
While the term "apocalyptic" can properly be applied to this book and its themes, it's not at all a "scary" book, one meant to frighten, like so many "end of the world" books. This book made me think, made me look around and look within. If you've read any "apocalyptic" literature, including Biblical texts, you'll find "Fr. Elijah" much easier going, much closer to the real world, while still remaining challenging and accessible. I can't wait to read more by Michael O'Brien.
