More lists with this book...
Well that was a cruel, devilish ending. Pun oh so intended.
I needed to read a James Patterson book, and I finally did. I can’t say I chose right as my first read by him – maybe I should have started with ''Maximum Ride'' – but one can certainly admit that he takes the reader to unexpected, uncharted places.
How could I have resisted the premise? Two girls, both pregnant, yet both virgin, also. The son of God is growing inside one, and the son of Lucifer inside the other. But who is the lucky one? ...more
The secret of the miraculous revelations of the appearance of the Virgin Mary in Fatima in 1918 is that two virgins will conceive. One will bear the Son of God, the other will bear the Son of Satan. The premise of the book is that two teenag ...more
I really enjoyed that Anne's portion of the story was the main POV. I loved that we got first person with her. It definitely made it easy to connect with her and feel like I was on the journey for revelations. Getting random POV of the other characters normally irritates me, ...more
So it was my first "adult" choice book. And I'm SO glad it was, because it did the job. I don't know if I'd be as taken with reading if I didn't like this book.
Thankfully that wasn't the case.
Have I read things I've loved more since this book? Of course. But you're always gonna have ...more
If you missed it the first time, this is about two teens (Kathleen and Colleen; the former is American and the latter is Irish). Both are pregnant. Both are virgins. According to prophecy, one is carrying the second coming and the other...well, you've seen Rosemary's Baby. The problem is, no one knows which baby is which. That's where Anne comes in. It's her job (wit ...more
Although I enjoyed the writing, generally, I found myself wondering what the point of the book was. It might have worked as a prequel or sequel. But, standing alone, it was definitely lacking.
I didn't find myself involved enough with the main characters, and thought they were a little two-dimensional.
I do, however ...more
Niente appassiona di più dell'eterna lotta tra il Bene e il Male, soprattutto quando di mezzo ci sono il Vaticano e i preti. Ne era ben consapevole anche James Patterson, quando, nel lontano 1980, decise di scrivere un thriller per dare la sua interpretazione al tema della Natività, dell'attesa del Messia. Patterson si è chiesto sicuramente come avrebbero reagito la comunità cristiana e il mondo intero, ma anche cosa avrebbe comportato questo evento d'incredibile portata storica.
This book also reminds me of the story between an old man and his grandson about good and evil, let me share their inspi ...more

The story was told at a great pace and the writing was good! I found myself being disappointed whenever I had to put this down and really excited to pick it back up. Which virgin would bear the child of Satan, and which would bear the Savior?
As I said, the end ...more
So I grabbed this book, start reading it when I got home and beyond my expectation, I get hooked with this book. Maybe because the plot, maybe because the th ...more

The book had so many creepy scenes, but, even it move in fast paced scenes, I still feel that the book cannot be absorbed much by me. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the turns of events in the book, which makes me questioning what happen next. It had such a shocking ending that reading i ...more
I know Patterson's style, so no surprise here. Though this feels like an early version of Patterson's real style. In this one, he overuses brand names to esta ...more
