El Comando Tribulación (Left Behind #2)
In a cataclysmic instant, millions of people disappear from the planet. Only four people survive and they unite to form "Tribulation Force." Their goal is nothing less than to oppose the enemies of God, and to fight against them during the most chaotic seven years the planet will ever see.
1. Rayford and Chloe's relationship. It didn't seem believable as a father and daughter relationship. I guess they were just very open and that's great, but I didn't fully buy it. I found myself wondering if perhaps the authors (both males) were living vicariously through Rayford and wishing their relationships with their own daughters were so amazing. A lot of times I kept feeling like I was stuck in a...more
And while I liked Tribulation Force and it was a fairly quick read, I can't say that I was overly impressed by it.
Please don't misunderstand me--the authors have done a great job of researching the end times as predicted in Revelations...more
Suspense, intrigue etc. etc.
They actually moved the U.N. to a place called "New Babylon". I can't believe people, especially religious people (for example the Catholics, or especially the Jews that were left behind) would not see that there was something spiritually fishy about that idea, seeing how frequently the name of Babylon is used in...more
My mother, knowing that I'm a science fiction fan, sent me a big box full of these books, hopeful (apparently) that I would read them and share her great joy in their riveting depiction of the events in the book of Revelation as they unfold in a near-future (apparently not May 2011). I did try. I made it through the first chapter before I...more
Throughout this book Buck and Chloe have married, and Buck and Raymond have each taken their own assignments in finding...more
However, book 2 in the Left Behind series was great. While still slightly political, the action is much more fast paced. As the group of four who call themselves the Tribulation Force move closer to the signing of the treaty which will start the seven year Tribulation period, the world rejoices in the new world leader, Nicolae Carpathia. Even religi...more
This books job, once being drawn into the event by the strange events of left behind, is written to establish what will come in the future books. Relationships, authority, umm preaching, basically to cement the thinking in the bible and to prepare the firstly emotional ride and secondly the readers belief in something that whether true or not is someth...more
While the book is loosely based around the final days of our planet according to the Bible, I have found myself constantly picking the book up to read a few pages here and there when I had time. What I'm trying to say is the book was hard to put down and kept "calling" me back to it.
I don't find it hard to believe the layout of the seri...more
- The dialogue takes up the majority of the book and is terribly basic and strained.
- Much over an hour (audiobook format - of a 10 hour book) is spent on tiresome dialogue between two characters clearing up a misunderstanding which very minimally effect their romantic relationship. Later, one of the main characters plans to marry a newly introduced character with less than 5 minutes of introduction of that...more
What I'm reading
Have you heard of the Left Behind series? Silly question. Of course you have.
I've finally decided I'd read it and "kindled" the book. Mistake. I probably should have taken it out of the library. Think about this. There are twelve-thirteen? books in the series. Each one costs between 5 and 10 dollar a piece. Figuring the usual $10 kindle price, if i were to buy twelve of these, it would (will) run me $120
For a book. That isn't a masterpiece or a piece o...more
The start of this book was excellent - characters having their own personal dilemmas in the midst of a changing world. I enjoyed reading about people that had never taken Christianity seriously now being challenged by God and becoming tot...more
