Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Just in time for the millennium, Glenn Kleier mixes bioengineering and religion, miracles and modern warfare, politics and physics to produce a gripping tale set in the Middle East at the dawn of the 21st century. When a mysterious explosion destroys a top-secret laboratory in the Negev desert on Christmas Day 1999, Jonathan Feldman, a reporter, isn't satisfied with the official explanation. Neither is the Vatican, nor an American fundamentalist preacher, nor the patriarch of the Jehovah's Witnesses, all of whom believe that Armageddon may truly be at hand. After a New Year's Eve earthquake strikes the temple at the Well of David and a mysterious figure appears in the ruins, strange things begin to happen. Reports of miracles filter in from throughout the region, and the legend of Jeza takes on a life of its own. When the young miracle worker chooses Jonathan to connect her to the world and broadcast her warning of the cataclysm to come, the world's religious leaders are plunged into conflict. Seeking to discredit her, they spread the secret of her high-tech, bioengineered birth. But their actions backfire; Jeza's influence grows. Holy wars break out in the Middle East and chaos erupts all over the world. As Easter 2000 approaches, the political situation grows even more tense: Will there be another crucifixion, another resurrection? Kleier handles this complicated plot with ease, and fans of futuristic thrillers won't be disappointed. --Jane Adams

Synopsis

It is moments before midnight on New Year's Eve 1999, when something incredible happens. It is a geological event of staggering proportions, followed by reports of the emergence of a woman with divine powers. Is she a divine emissary, the product of bizarre science, or something more sinister? -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Surprising 28. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I figured that any book that can garner 400 reader reviews deserved a look and I ordered this one. I have to say, it was not at all what I anticipated. This is not some dark, depressing, preachy religious book. It proved to be a very sophisticated and intense suspense thriller. I was impressed with the quality of writing and the degree of research and authenticity that went into this. The unusual plot,which has many surprising twists and turns, is both credible and entertaining and delightfully mischievous. It delves into some weighty matters, but it does so with touches of humor and touching sensititivy. There is wisdom and truth in what the book is saying. The ending is unexpected and appealing, it sneaks up on you and literally takes your breath away. I found the story and characters fascinating throughout. I can understand why the book seems to evoke such polarizing responses in its readers, some loving it, some loathing it. The story takes strong and critical positions against some activities of several large, established religions. If you are offended by critical satire of this nature, I would shy away from reading the book. But if not, I think you'll find this a truly fascinating and intelligent novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bewegendes Buch 26. Mai 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Eher per Zufall bin ich vor gut 2 Jahre (1999 kurz vor der grossen Milleniumswelle) auf dieses Buch gestossen. So packte es mich doch von der ersten Zeile an und liess mich nicht mehr los. Kein andere Buch bindet seinen Leser so sehr an das Geschehen. Was ich besonders gelungen finde sind die Wechsel der Ansichten die einem der Autor vermittelt. In dem einen Augenblick ist man von Therorie A noch Felsenfest überzeugt so muss man kurz darauf doch zu Theorie B wechseln, und wieder zurück. Diese Buch ist Spannungsgeladen bis zu letzten Sekunde und wurde auch in meine Bekanntekreis von alle Lesern verschlungen. Sehr gutes erstlings Werk von Glenn Kleier, bleibt nur zu hoffen das sein nächster Roman daran anknüpfen kann.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A work of art 2. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Rarely have I enjoyed a book more than "The Last Day." Even more rarely have I reviewed a book--reading and rereading passages--noting not only the prosaic writing, but actually feeling the impact of the words as they flood over me....Mr. Kleier truly has a gift. I am one, I suspect, of many agnostic Jews, who, while wishing to 'connect' to the Mysteries, continually seek out stories of the supernatural, the paranormal, fantasy and folk magic (Charles De Lint), as well as revered theologists such as C.S. Lewis (although I must admit to reading the Chronicles of Narnia more than a dozen times from my childhood to well into my adulthood). "The Last Day" moved me to tears....tears of emotional release as I neared the end of the novel. I cannot recall the last time that I felt as moved. I knew that the last few chapters would include the assassination scene-that was a given. However, I never anticipated the impact that this portion of the novel would have on my psyche. I frankly never wanted the book to end. It extends a sense of hope to the reader--bringing out the innocence in all of us that calls for peace, understanding, acceptance of the many differences found in the family of man...that touched a chord in me-- and, if this book's sales are any indication, hundreds of thousands of others. I'm traveling in Japan now as I write this-it's nearly 11:30 PM in Tokyo. Although I should be sleeping to prepare for another chaotic day sorting through the debris of this economic nightmare of a marketplace, I am thoroughly enjoying writing my first fan letter. Thank you for such a masterful piece of art, Mr. Kleier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't put it down 4. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
It took me all weekend, but I finished it. I literally could not put it down. Let me warn you, carve out some time for this one, because it's the type of story you can't tear yourself away from. After ten pages I was hooked. I even cheated and jumped ahead to the final pages, but still couldn't figure it out till I read it all. It's that kind of book. Involved, but not tedious and never boring. There is no guessing any of this. The story is as original and unpredictable as they come--probably because of the uniqueness of the storyline--the coming of a true messiah. This is not, however, a religious book, although there are wonderful spiritual elements to it. But it does get down and dirty about religion, and turns a scathing eye on modern day religious hypocrites. There is a definite purpose and intent to the story that leads directly to a startling conclusion (I won't give it away), but it's not at all what I expected and the ending surprised me in a very positive and thrilling way. I like the way this author thinks and I like the vision he has about what the 'new' messiah wants of mankind. This book will fray your nerves with suspense at times, but in the end, it's all worth while--the ending will leave you grinning with satisfaction!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Less Believable than I was led to believe 6. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book upon the recomendation of a reader of the "Left Behind" series. They thought this was a more believable version of the story. I read it and thought just the opposite. The story is pretty hard to believe. The book also is hard to get into. The author does not do a very good job at envolving the reader. I guess it doesn't help that it is set in the year 2000. It is definately NOT better than the Left Behind series. If you want a book series that is believable, try the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.
