A mish-mash of religion. A hot-mess of a plot. Ridiculous.

I throughly enjoyed this well written tale of faith, doubt, hope, death and redemption. A story of the light that resides in all of us if we dare to look. It is a voyage and the writing takes us on an adventure where every step has heightened anticipation of what will be revealed to the characters, and to us all. Personally found it odd that I should finish reading this book on Ash Wednesday.
This book was a real disappointment. The characters were not very believable or engaging, the theology was a mish-mash of Christianity and every other religion, and the plot was not very suspenseful. I picked it up on a whim from the library and I wish I had passed over it to something else.
Could not put this book down!! I bought it on vacation, and read it many nights, until it was done. Please write some more Irving,your talent is addictive.
A millenium novel. I was hoping for more of an ending for this book than I was given, though I tend to be a sucker for most things biblical and end times.
This provocative book was for me a cross between the Joshua series and The Celestine Prophecy. I couldn't put it down.
