Publisher's Summary

In one cataclysmic moment, millions around the globe disappear. Vehicles, suddenly unmanned, careen out of control. People are terror stricken as loved ones vanish before their eyes. Is this the rapture prophesied by scriptures in the Bible from ancient times? If so, what destiny and tribulations are about to befall those who remain on the Earth and are left behind?
In the midst of global chaos, airline captain Rayford Steele must search for his family, for answers, for truth. As devastating as the strange disappearances have been, the darkest days may yet lie ahead....

Fantastic Series

I read these several years ago and am now listening to them. They are as enthralling and thought-provoking as I remembered. Note: Audible has this series narrated by two different people. Be sure to listen to a sample before buying. I much prefer Jack Sondericker as the narrator. The other one sounds a bit computer-generated to me but it is just personal preference. I found the series to be life-changing. No, you shouldn't get your theology from novels, but they sure can make you think about your life!

Great story, terrible audio

This review covers "Left Behind" and "Tribulation Force" as narrated by Jack Sondericker.

I am so disappointed with the audio quality of this recording. It sounds like it was recorded straight off of a cassette which had been wound tightly for a long time. The audio is full of echoes and pre-echoes from where the cassette tape had experienced bleed-through. If you listen through earphones as I do, it's extremely distracting.

Additionally, there is a ton of background noise. Furious pencil-scratching sounds, bangs and clanks...and I'm almost certain I heard a toilet flush at one point.

All of that I could have tolerated, and in fact DID tolerate through Left Behind and much of Tribulation Force.

But then Rabbi Ben-Zion became a major figure, and his badly-done "Hebrew accent" is more than I can stand. If I were Jewish, I'd be insulted. It's one thing to be unable to master an accent, but it's another to make it sound as if the person is channeling a mixture of Donald Duck and Ludwig Von Drake.

I will be returning this series for a refund, but since I love the story itself, I will try again with a different narrator.

The drama of the end of the world!

Would you listen to Left Behind again? Why?

Yes, it was such an adventurous story with so much drama. It kept me wanting to come back to listen as soon as I had a free moment! When I finished it, I couldn't wait to listen to the next book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Left Behind?

When suddenly over half the people on a plane disappear without warning without knowing what cruelly happened!

Which character – as performed by Jack Sondericker – was your favourite?

Buck, also known as Cameron Williams

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Would it be you whose left behind?!

Can't stop listening! NEED MORE

The performing voice did justice to every character, giving contrast and believability to their personalities and to the story itself. Written in such a way to keep you hooked till the last word.
