"the third book in the Century Trilogy by Ken Follett. It has already started excitingly. I am worried about and pulling for these characters, made more intense by having lived through these events. It starts in 1961, when I was 16, quite old enough to remember. Knowing what is going to happen in creates real tension for the well-being of the characters. And this author will kill off favorites."

"I have now read the section on Non-Canonical Apocalypses and Revelatory Treatises. This section was fairly readable, and some was quite interesting. Some was quite involved intellectually, the Gnostics often being surprising." Apr 06, 2016 01:34PM

"His story is engrossing, his characters wonderful, his descriptions and language just lovely, and his historical narrative, filled with opinions about human nature and the nature of violence can be either interesting or completely boring. The initial part of this section fell in the latter category, but the rest was wonderful." Oct 17, 2015 12:37PM

It ended in a bad place, but that was to be expected considering the next book in the series is REDEEMED which makes me hope it will make everything a bit better. Again these books are very readable, both exciting and fun.
Julie is on page 81 of 306 of Revealed: Neferet is back and threatening. Toward the beginning, one of the group dies and the friends must deal with that, another death, housing the red vampyres, and fending off Neferet. There is never a dearth of problems in these books.

“When you read Marx (or Jesus) this way, you come to see that real wealth is not material wealth and real poverty is not just the lack of food, shelter, and clothing. Real poverty is the belief that the purpose of life is acquiring wealth and owning things. Real wealth is not the possession of property but the recognition that our deepest need, as human beings, is to keep developing our natural and acquired powers to relate to other human beings.”
Grace Lee Boggs, The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century
