5.0 von 5 Sternen A classic earthly novel about an exciting heavenly topic.
The first book in an action-packed series, Left Behind is a must read. My compliments are limitless about Left Behind, but I will try to limit myself while I am telling you about this insightful book. Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins did a tremendous job combining both fiction and non-fiction. Rayford Steele is piloting a 747 when something strange begins to happen...

Even though there are almost 1400 critics already, I can't help adding my own two pennies worth...
I had high hopes for this series when it first came to my attention; it sounded just like what I was looking for, the Biblical end-times put into a fictional plot, so that one could get a better grip of what it might be like. After reading van Kampen's "The Sign" (which is good, but hard-going and a non-fictional analysis) I thought LaHaye and Jenkin's concept might make a nice change.
Well, I must say that the whole CONCEPT of the book strikes me as really good. There are such brilliant ideas in there, such genuninly good bases for exciting plots and stories - but they all get butchered by abyssmal writing and a complete lack of developing either the characters or the story to just a margin of their potential. Either the story moves along much too fast and without any insight into the development of what the characters experience during all these horrific scenarios (i.e. wittnessing the chaos on earth after the Rapture, Buck's (non-)reaction when he sees his friend being blasted to bits by a bomb etc.) or the conversation/plot moves round and round in the same circles all the time (i.e. Chloe's process of becoming a Christian, Rayford and Hattie's (non-)relationship etc.). The charcters are all so under-developed that I simply couldn't care for them at all. But quite apart from that, I found the whole style of writing so stilted and immature, that it reminded me of a highschool paper rather than a novel...
I am usually a great fan of series, because you get to visit and re-visit the same "people" all the time, sharing a bit of their "life" and "fate". But since I simply couldn't get a connection to either Rayford, Chloe, Buck or any of the others, I will not be continuing with "Left Behind", even though there might be some good conceptional ideas in the other volumes.
Bottom line: It COULD have been so much better.......

1.0 von 5 Sternen Words Fail Me!, 24. Juli 2000
Von 
This book and its sequels comprise the most pitiful excuse for "Christian" writing that I have ever come across. I read them (forced myself after the first few pages of this first volume) at the request of a family member who wanted my opinion about the series. He had begun his reading of the series rather enthusiastically, then became increasingly disillusioned as the saga, with its absurd and boring set of characters, plunged deeper and deeper into indescribable idiocy. This would make excellent sleep-inducing material for insomniacs to read, except that it's so infuriating to know that such horrible writing is being bought and gobbled up by earnest, well-meaning Christians. What kind of message do they think stuff like this is sending to the rest of the world? That everyone had better become a Christian with a particular set of beliefs about the "end times"? I think not. I'm afraid that LEFT BEHIND's message is, instead, that Christians are foolish, frightened, rather uninteresting people, or....even worse...smug and self-righteous folks who want those who don't agree with them on every point to see what horrors are in store for them. This is very different from the message that I believe we're supposed to glean from the Bible: one of compassion and love toward our fellow man and an awareness that none of us is perfect. Oh, and by the way, it's too bad we aren't given the option of *no* stars, or even more fitting: MINUS five stars!

1.0 von 5 Sternen religios rant of the poorest grain, 27. Februar 2008
Von 
what a FALLACY ! what an OFFENCE of HUMANITY, REASON and MORALITY !
This "book" is just plainly BAD. Motive - religious delusion, Language - simplistic redneck level, Plot - complete fraud, Characters - cheap comics, Writing skills - oh, boy ! , Message - none, Lessons learned - keep away from religion or you'll end up reading and believing this nonsense....

1.0 von 5 Sternen AIN'T HINDSIGHT GREAT?, 30. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This book is the only one in the series that comes ANYWHERE close to being a good read. For me, there was something oddly addictive about it, and even though I knew it was pretty bad writing I'm embarrassed to admit I let LEFT BEHIND #1 hook me into buying several of its sequels--- each of which became progressively lamer. Jenkins's writing skills(?) are really pretty bad, and the way they've ended each book with a "cliff-hanger" to lure the reader into buying the next has seemed more and more cynical and calculated. As a Christian, it's pretty scary to me the way so many people seem to be forgetting that these books are fiction and are taking them as a literal picture of the near future. If you want a good, well-written perspective on the way good and evil battle for men's souls, read THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS by C.S. LEWIS. If you want to study biblical prophecy just stick with the Bible. If you like science fiction, there are TONS of better-written books in that category.

1.0 von 5 Sternen 468 Seiten - keine Story, 4. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Das Beste am Buch ist das Cover. Inhaltlich besteht das Buch aus gähnender Leere. Es fehlt praktisch alles was ein gutes Buch ausmacht. Gute Zutaten wie Wortwitz, eine gut entwickelte Story, ein schlüssiges Konzept sind nicht vorhanden, so als ob diese plötzlich verschwunden wären. Das einzige Kompliment, daß man den Autoren machen kann ist, daß Sie es geschafft haben aus nichts ein 468 Seiten dickes Buch zu machen. Aus allgemeinen christlichen Werten wird eine wirre Handlung abgeleitet die eher auf ein zufälliges Aneinanderreihen von Wörtern schließen läßt. Man muß das wohl vor dem Hintergrund sehen, daß in den US of A an jeder Straßenecke eine andere Glaubensgemeinschaft auf Seelenfang geht. Daher hat das Buch dort wohl auch gute Absatzchancen. In den von diversen Sekten angebotenen Zeitschriften findet man ähnliche Inhalte. Wer das Original haben möchte sollte lieber die Bibel lesen und ein Gesangbuch zur Hand nehmen. Als kleine Anekdote am Rande sei erwähnt, ich habe das Buch gerade in einem Zug gelesen, der plötzlich infolge eines Personenschadens zum Stillstand kam. Dadurch war ich tatsächlich "Left Behind" und konnte mich weitere zwei Stunden mit dem Buch beschäftigen. Die Marketingkonzeption, die hinter dem Produkt steht finde ich dagegen ganz interessant. Hörspiel, Video, die Jungs wissen, wie man Geld verdienen kann.

1.0 von 5 Sternen If I could give it less than one star I would, 19. September 2000
Von Ein Kunde
After hearing all the hype about this book my expectations may have been a little high. But I think my disappointment would have been as great even without the buildup. One reviewer pointed out that it was written for the 'low brow' crowd - readers of Clancy and Grisham were mentioned. I would have to disagree - this book is *much* worse than Clancy and Grisham. In fact it is the worst writing I've seen published. It may well be true that the story is exciting - but if you are used to grammatical and syntactically correct writing you might not be able to continue reading long enough to judge.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Silly, shallow and plain bad., 7. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This books reads like a a kindergarten kid telling you: "see? I told you mom would come". Its supposedly Bible-based scenarios are such a stretch that they make the parting of the Red Sea look like something I might see during my commute every day. And I see far more wonderous things , believe me. It is a moral fable of very low quality. Its 'simplistic' (not simple) views are a drag . It's characters reactions and behaviour are so unrealistic they become symbols: greed, lust...just like in a medieval tableau. Last time someone though that the Messiah would come with BIG announcements, there was some disappointment.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Left Behind left me behind., 16. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I found this book boring, poorly written and opinionated. I wish I had had a clue that this was just "born-again" propaganda. While I'm sure this type of literature has an audience, I would have appreciated some warning that these authors had a strongly held point of view and would hammer away at it for 468 pages. Religion trying to be literature rarely works, and Left Behind is a prime example of why it doesn't.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Eye Opener and Heart Opener, 25. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
My brother pat read this book and told me about it. When I started to read it, oh man......what a book. I've read revelations before, however, never really did understand how things were going to happen...though it is just a book, scripture is referenced through a little of the sections, although, I think that more scripture should have been noted, it's something that is no problem because if you're serious, this book will kick you in the behind big time.
There is a lot of thought that needs to be put behind the reading, don't just read the book. You've got to try and really understand what's going on with the characters and how their lives are turned around....would it apply to you? are you in the same boat as them?
The funny thing about it, and no doubt you already no, people have dissappeared, is very scary....Ezekiel says, "in a twinkle of an eye..." when will that happen? No body knows, but, don't you think it could rather happen at any time? The other question is, when it does happen, will I and my wife Cindy be among those people that gets to be taken up to heaven with the rest of the Christians?
All I know, is, people haven't dissappeared yet, that means, Christ hasn't come to take his Christians, but, I want to be ready when it does happen. I've got a wife and next year some kids will be on the way.
Maybe this is a little hog wash, but, I'm not appologizing for what I'm writing to anybody....but, if you're not ready now, when will you be ready? When will you take the first steps in becoming ready? If you want to hang around for the 7-year tribulation period, that's up to you, but, it would be a lot less painful for you if you let Christ live through you.
So, any way, I rate the book a 10 and finished it. I'm out the door to get Tribulation ...
Tim

5.0 von 5 Sternen DEEPENED MY FAITH EVEN MORE, 31. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
My mother, father and sister and I have read all four of the first four installments in less than two weeks. Each of us read each book in less than 2 days. Now that we have all finished with Soul Harvest, we can't wait for the next book. As a Christian, I never thought to question when the Rapture would take place. I found there are different views from different authorities on Bible prophecy that the Rapture may occur Pre-Tribulation (as these books suggest). Others believe that the Rapture will occur sometime midway through the tribulation, but before the Wrath of the Lamb. And there are those that believe that all Christians will be taken Post-Tribulation at the Second Coming of Christ to the Earth. Whatever the timing, I believe that Christ will return to take His own. Heed the warnings of these books, though!! Be ready now. There will be tribulation saints and it warms my heart to see the characters in this continuing story try and succeed in reaching unbeli! evers for Christ. If the Rapture is to Pre-Tribulational, as I'm sure both Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins have studied Bible prophecy deligently and concluded to be true with the most utmost conviction, then would it not be best NOW to accept Christ has your Savior and Lord. Believe me, I know the decision is hard. I was 19 before I was saved, but was 36 before I truly began living my life for Christ. Even if the Rapture does not occur in our lifetime for those that are reading this review, life with Christ is a freedom that I did not know before. If you are reading these books and you are unsure, pick up your Bible and read it daily. If you have ONLY one hour for church each week attend a Bible Study (Sunday School). Not only will you have more in-depth studies into God's Word, but you will meet Christians on a personal basis who will love to fellowship with you and help you in your walk with Jesus. As you can tell by following along with the lives of the tribulation sai! nts, the life of a Christian is not dull or boring, nor are! we "fuddy-duddies".
Unless the Rapture comes first, my family and I are anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Left Behind series. IN THE MEAN TIME, BE READY AND KEEP LOOKING UP!!! P.S. My son has also read Left Behind - The Vanishings (for kids) and loved it too.
