Uth Pastors WifeEastern, WAAge: 35-44Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Terrible bookApril 13, 2011Uth Pastors WifeEastern, WAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1The story went round and round and bounced from person to person often repeating dialogue and events so you weren't sure if it was a re-cap or happening again. I get that it was fiction and wasn't expecting anything too theologically correct but it was just plain weird and sort of dumb how it played out. The story goes on and on and often is quite slow and drags but then comes to a screeching halt. I would not say it was awful but I spent more time on it that I wished now that I finished it.
dem34241 Stars Out Of 5Don't Waste Your TimeMarch 29, 2011dem3424Quality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I'm still not sure why I finished this book, as I was ready to quit after about 50 pages (I usually try to give books that much, because some get better by then). This was not the case with this book. I thought that it was supposed to be a funny satire about the different rapture books. I didn't find it funny in the least, in fact I found it demeaning. The end is not really an adequate ending, given all the build up. Even the epilogue wasn't a good explanation. I wouldn't recommend reading this, unless you don't have anything better to read and have too much spare time to waste.
