End Time isn’t Keith Korman’s first novel but it appears to be his first solo novel written in quite some time. As a fan of the apocalyptic genre I was definitely intrigued by the title alone. The publisher’s description of the novel reads like a fascinating mashup of science run amok and a rising tide of supernatural occurrences. I found this to be an interesting combination and one that we don’t see too often. Unfortunately I found End Time’s combination of supernatural horror and weird scienc ...more

English Review

I would not venture to make a summary of this book, it is too complex for that. I will clarify my feelings from the book’s summary:

After reading this synopsis, I was expecting a very fast-paced reading, with the virus, kidnapping, the experience gone wrong… In fact, the first part of the book (approximately 200 pages) is a presentation of the different characters and the reaction of some regarding the kidnapping of two girls. It’s very slow and boring, I admit that I almost stopped

From the first scenes to the very last page, this race across the country to save humanity never lets up or slows down. You’ll be turning pages well past your bedtime with this book! This intricate tale skillfully ties together a story of biomedical engineering gone horribly wrong with alien visitations, corporate and government cover-ups, designer drugs and pandemics. The good guys are an unlikely cast of imperfect individuals each so well-described that I know I would recognize them instantly ...more

My English review

As soon as I read the summary of the novel, I was intrigued. I must say that we often have post-apocalyptic stories but eventually this one shows us the Apocalypse itself, a change in the world that affects everyone by different methods. How not to be intrigued?

Yet I have not really managed to hang on the story or the characters. I finally read 140 pages (one third of the book) before deciding to put it down… I do not know if this is due to my state of mind a

This is a slow, cluttered read with too many threads which add little value to the overall confused story. I actually read to the end but only because I was travelling and had nothing else. The characters are well formed but the story itself is too disjointed and non-sensical to be satisfying.

A bit more than 3 stars. It fault of this book to me is that it tries to cover all the bases of the theories of Heaven and Hell, visitors from other worlds, angels and devils and everything in between. That gets in the way of telling the story which is sad because it could be a much better story if he was not trying to tie all of that together. The characters could use a little more filling out and they might have had that with less theory. You would like to know more about at least a few of th ...more

Published 2015. Goodreads says less pages than my edition which is 598. The inevitable comparision for this novel is King's "The Stand". It has about anything and everything: good and evil, ghosts, aliens, mad scientists, various religious influences including American Indian, angels, space, Andromeda Strain (kinda), time travel - the list goes on.
Personally, I like these kinds of apocalyptic books even tho this one was a bit of a struggle at first. The first half struck me as one huge downer. T

It's terribly slow, and there is way too much going on that never really come together or make a complete story... The first 150 or so pages were pointless, and the book only really picks up around page 400 maybe... I'm almost annoyed I finished it. I kept thinking the end has to be something!!! It's not, and it's not worth the read in my opinion...
