Pulp Christian fiction
Well, this book was written to the level of the lowest denominator of reader. It had potential, starting with a great subject. Of course, this is a fictionalization of what the end times prophesied in the NT Bible will be like. Moreover, it is a portrayal held by a portion of Christians, not at all an ecumenical in scope. Of these prophesies, this is just one amongst a plethora of interpretations. This is one mans fictionalized, fleshed out story for the common masses. It is not great or even good literature. It's just entertaining enough for readers who have the attention span of typical modern Americans. For any serious reader, it will be a BORE! If you are interested in pulp Bible prophesies, this is the book series for you.

Fun if you accept it for what it is...
...which is a rather poor attempt at fiction, with characters you don't care about, interspersed with sermons. In time this could be a historical document of a particular brand of fundamentalist theology. Anyway, it's utter rubbish, but the one redeeming feature is the narrator. Struggling to bring the book alive, his tone is immensely serious, and he manages to out-do Dick Van Dyke in the 'worst cockney accent attempted by an American' category (the taxi driver).
Not sure I'm happy I've wasted my book allowance on this, but probably worth listenting to just so you know what the whole 'left behind' experience is about.
