3.0 von 5 Sternen This one's much better, 22. Juni 2000
I've just finished the third installment of this series, and must admit that the writing had improved.
I still had some problems with it: some of the dialogue and action was too predictable, the characters still weren't as fleshed out as they could have been, the action scenes were a little dry, and, as in "Tribulation Force," dialogue and narration used to describe past events were too in-depth, and dragged the story down.
Although I enjoyed this third part more than I did the second, I found myself once again skipping through certain parts. These parts contained discussions about anti-abortion, and I found the blatant propaganda to be inappropriate and unneccesary. Although the topic itself was important to the plot (involving the unborn child of the antichrist), I felt that the authors focused less on this aspect and more on...I hate to use this word in each review...*preaching* against abortion. I feel that the use of such a hot topic wasn't handled as well as it could have been.
As unimpressed as I've been with the writing aspects of the works, I'm anxious to pick up the next book, "Soul Harvest." The continued plot is turning out to be very consistant in this account of earth's last days. What happens in each book is still within reason, and actually does make one wonder about the world we live in today. I tend to be very leary of works such as this, because it can be taken too seriously by some. However, many works of fiction over the years have made us think, and these books are certainly doing that!

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's good, but not for everyone..., 21. Juni 2000
When I picked this one up out of curiosity, I was actually suprised when I enjoyed it. I'm leary of any Christian writings these days, since so many authors feel their view is the only correct view.
The story itself isn't too bad: the characters start out being fairly real (although not that original), the plot is actually plausible, and the writing itself is done well enough to keep the reader from being too distracted. Overall, I thought the storytelling was good...but not great.
Regarding the religious theme: as I said, it's plausible, and a reasonable interpretation of the Book of Revelations. My personal beliefs involve accepting that's there have been many, many interpretations of the divine throughout human history, and nobody yet can realistically say they have the only correct answers. Keeping that in mind, I was able to ignore the "preachy" slant of the book near the end, and accept it as an important part of the storyline. (Since it's based on Christian, rather than another religion's, beliefs, it must include accepting Jesus as the Messiah.)
Overall, I'd suggest it to anyone who enjoys apocolyptic storylines. You might like it, or you might not; the important thing to keep in mind while reading it is that it's fiction, and only *one* interpretation.
