Search for his family for answers for truth As devastating as the disappearances have been the darkest days may lie ahead. Most people do now know that I have read 7 of the 13 Left Behind books 12 actually but then they threw on that extra one and this is not counting the preuels the kids versions and the horrendous graphic novels Armageddon can pay off nicely as long as it's delayed I don't hide the fact it just doesn't come up that often I would have read all of them but when I went through my Left Behind phase these were the only ones out The phase lasted I think 2 weeks The books read uickly WhyOriginally I wanted to read something I knew going into the book that it would be shit I do this from time to time I also wanted to read what AMERICA was reading and right around the time I read this there was a good deal of media coverage on the Left Behind phenomena I felt disconnected from AMERICA at the time as I was at Grad School and spent most of my time around then reading Adorno Deleuze and Levinas Most of AMERICA wasn't reading this but they were reading LaHaye and Jenkins tales of a post rapture world Once I started reading the first one I got hooked on them and read all of them that I could Were they any good No They are terrible books Awful The writing is shit their dialog is painfully cookie cutter and except for Rayford every character sounds exactly the same These two murders of Literature also found it too time consuming to put things like 'Rayford said' or 'Buck said' after a line of dialog so to follow a conversation again and again I found myself having to count back lines to see who was talking when That most of their dialog was made up of short declarative sentences made this even painful I don't know why but it did The plotAll the born again christians goto heaven when the rapture happens The non believers are all left for the 7 years of tribulation Everyone gets one shot to believe in the big G and JC because they are kind that way The anti JC and satan though are out to make life a living hell for these new found believers Apparently there was a video game that came out where the Tribulation Force what a fucking stupid name got to fight the minions of satan It looked like a Grand Theft Auto kind of game and apparently you could kill the evil doers Neat huhDid this make me a believerNo What did I learn from these booksThat once again outlandish persecution fantasies dominate the thinking of groups of people This isn't news but at the time I was drawing interesting parallels between left wing theorists like Ernesto Laclau left wing theorists like Judith Butler racist writers like George Lincoln Rockwell and these two bozos All of them based their entire philosophy basically on the opposition where they precieved themselves to be a minority being threatened and basically stuck on the idea of us vs them as a starting point All three types of people went in divergent directions with their theorizing but they all seem to revel in being victims The Republican Party and right wing talk show hosts pass almost their entire identity these days on this kind of thought You'd think that they were being hunted down and killed by raving liberals instead of living in a country where their brand of thought is pretty much accepted I'll avoid going off on my thoughts on our two party system here Liberals probably kind of do this too but they at least have the decency to hide their paranoia by attempting to do something that isn't just whining about how they are being victimized they might point to someone like a tortured prisoner or the poor to show how bad things are under some conservative This is going way off track This book is pop shit Sadly this is a mainstream type of thought in this country a non thinking brand of religious mania being fed to people through shitty books like this one Instead of believing in anything this book is getting people to do the old Pascal's wager and put the insurance bet on getting into Heaven there is nothing here about being any kind of decent human being just a mindless automaton getting ready to kneel down and pray and preach at anyone until they are brow beaten into submission Why three stars Because they were just so much fun to read in their terribleness

Tim LaHaye ☆ 7 Review

In one cataclysmic moment millions around the globe disappear Vehicles suddenly unmanned careen out of control People are. I felt left out of the Bad Books Club because I completely failed to get past the first chapter of The DaVinci Code so I read this to keep up And boy is this one horrible book And there's at least 11 of them NB I will not be reading the rest of the seriesThe writing is beyond terrible In a story that presents so many interesting narrative possibilities the grief of those left behind after The Rapture the breakdown of society after a massive tragedy the personal pain and soul searching of those who believed they had faith but who were found wanting and ignores them all in favor of people sitting on beds and talking on phones The authors say that there is violence and mayhem but don't show any of it The main characters' conversions to Christianity happen as almost an afterthought there is little description of the feeling of God's love of how they will change their lives and live by the teachings of Jesus The book could have been about 300 pages shorter for all it has of any substance or it could have remained the same length and added some actual plot or character developmentOh my the characters Our Two Heroes are named Rayford Steele and Buck Williams The current president is named Gerald Fitzhugh totally not supposed to evoke John Fitzgerald Kennedy I'm sure Williams's editor is named Steve Plank and I presume that if this naming scheme keeps up later volumes will include media mogul Robert Mudrock and sassy reporter June Heat Register There are two women in the book and both of them are boy crazy and even find the time to get makeovers in the middle of the horrors of the post rapture world They are also wholly without personality but so are all the male characters The Antichrist shoots his two closest business partners in order to command respect and then uses his evil hypnosis skills to make everyone in the room forget about it So what was the point There's also a great throwaway line about how much Planned Parenthood loves its filthy abortion money and how they're so sad they no longer have any babies to abort no mention is made of reproductive health etcTheologically this book is on shaky ground as well There is the aforementioned avoidance of actually describing the process of converstion and there is little Biblical evidence given for the Rapture itself an event which many Christian sects do not believe in and see no textual evidence for uestions are brought up in the book about God's seemingly abusive role in forcing people to accept Jesus's sacrifice and love for humanity by secondhandedly killing scores of people in the aftermath of an event where drivers of cars disappeared suddenly If the seven years of tribulation are supposed to give the unbelievers a second chance how about all of those poor souls who died in accidents or who were stricken with heart attacks These uestions are not answered in the slightest and I was slightly thrown off by the book's refusal to capitalize Him when speaking of the divine It's an ostensibly religious book without any real faithThis could have been such an interesting story but the writing is so utterly awful that the series stands as dangerously bad It does nothing to address the mystery of faith and the horrors of the Apocalpse it could be any third rate spy thriller gathering dust on an airport bookshelf And it's so damnedly popular Reassuring

    It has been a long time since I read Left Behind but I have one interesting memory of reading it that remains clear and is I think worthy of discussion I'll get to that memory in a second but first I must digressI read this book for a student of mine She was a very nice lady who came into my English classes worried for everyone's souls and I say this with all honesty Left Behind was her favourite novel her favourite book was The Bible obviously and she asked me to read it just after we finished Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell So I did Now back to that memory Early on I remember thinking What a brilliant book this would be if Tim LaHaye was a master of irony on the level of Jonathon Swift Surenothing could save LeHaye's clunky prose but if he conceived of Left Behind as a commentary on fundamentalist believers it would have been a stroke of genius approaching the level of A Modest Proposal Then I started reading it that way letting myself imagine the story as a brilliant commentary and it made the otherwise execrable experience thoroughly tolerable I knew it wasn't so and I couldn't really force myself to believe but it sure was fun I laughed than I might have I giggled than I might have and I actually wasn't moved to throw this book in our backyard firepit when I finished Indeed when this piece of fundamentalist pop fiction kindling was over I eschewed the flames and dropped it on the book swap shelf of our English Department Drop a book take a book is the theory but there wasn't anything there I hadn't read before so I simply left my copy of Left Behind for some poor unsuspecting student to stumble uponAnd the next day it was goneI wonder who took that book? Probably a member of LeHaye's choir but I'd love for one of my colleagues to have picked it up and read it with the same guilty pleasure I did Perhaps then I wouldn't feel so sheepish

    Try to forget for a minute that there are people who take this stuff literally The book actually works as a sort of sci fi novel the kind Robert Heinlein might have written for adolescents The characters are paper thin and the truth is revealed to true believers It is a scandal that this stuff sold so many copies But it was worth the read to know what all the fuss was about Entertaining sure but still a major eye roller

    I usually have students fill out a card at the start of the semester with information like their major where they went to high school etc One thing I always ask is what book they read most recently The Left Behind series started showing up on those cards a lot a few years ago so I decided to read the first one to see what they were like This is absolutely the worst written book that I've ever picked up The dialogue is painful the characters are wooden the descriptions are hackneyed In every way this book is just too dreadful to wade through I skimmed it right through to the unintentionally laughable end where the main characters are striding side by side down the street to go take on the evil doers as the Tribulation Force I now have a benchmark for the scale of books this is the bottom Apparently you can't give a book a rating below one star

    Left Behind is one of the most wretchedly awful books I have ever forced myself to read If possible I would give this book zero stars Only by sheer willpower and by listening to the audio book one short installment at a time was I able to get through this one Whole essaysrants could be written on how much this book sucks but I'll limit myself to just a couple observations The worst thing about LB isn't LaHaye's crazy religious beliefs it's the fact that it's such a horribly written piece of garbage The only other books I have read that have been written this poorly are L Ron Hubbard's Mission Earth series which interestingly enough are also religious propaganda fiction written by a fanatical religious leader in his declining years CS Lewis was a popular Christian author with whom I often disagree but Lewis is infinitely readable and infinitely enjoyable than LaHaye and Jenkins regardless of whether you agree or disagree with him Apparently the writing process for the LB books was as follows LaHaye would write up a couple hundred page outline of notes and then submit the notes to his co author Jenkins who would turn these notes into a story Jenkins set a goal of writing 20 pages a day which means that within less than one month's time he could crank out a whole book A real writer worth his or her salt might spend years taking notes writing editing rewriting editing some re re writing etc It's not surprising then that LB reads like mass produced crap because that is exactly what it is McFiction for the McMasses No scratch that Stephen King used to joke about how his books were the literary euivalent of a Big Mac and fries most of what he wrote was at least a hundred times superior to LB LB is the four day old rotting McFiction that somebody salvaged from a dumpster A final comment on this travesty of the written word there is an almost total absence of Christian virtue or compassion in LB The Christian scriptures speak of the fruit of the spirit being love joy peace patience goodness kindness faithfulness gentleness and self control None of the Christian characters in this book embody these kind of virtues Christianity in LB is like a form of Manichean dualism than a religion of faith hope or love The so called Christians in LB are grim survivalists resigned to a fatalistic worldview of kill or be killed Their only concerns seem to revolve around taking care of their own and signing up recruits It's no wonder that so much of what passes for Christianity in America consists of extremist right wing militia groups holed up in their gated compound mall fortresses rather than genuine religious communities when books like this are what so many Christians imagine to be representative of their faith

    i read this entire seriesalmost non stop they came out with a preuel series but i figured how many times can you beat a dead horseThis series was really really good I didnt know how i was going to like it not being a practicing catholic and all but even if it doesnt keep to scripture 100% it gives you enough of an eye openerI remember thinking wow If this really happened i would be one of the ones suffering through all this And what would it take for me turn and accept godhow many plauges and tribuations would i suffer throughYou get to see how the whole world gets affected by this transition period where the antichrist fights for his throne and god is ever angry a war between good and badIts long theres so many books to this series but if you are the least bit interested in what life would be like once god takes his chosen ones and the rest of the world is left to fight off the devil antichrist give it a whirlI am glad i did

    I gave it a go I really really did The series is so popular and my ex really enjoys the books ok they're the only books he ever read so maybe that should have told me something so I thought I'd be open minded and try it After all I did like the movie The Rapture and I love religious science fictionThis however is thinly disguised right wing propaganda I can respect people who think differently than I do as long as they respect me back This book does no such thing They manage to twist everything positive in the world today into proof that the devil is afoot did you know the UN is apparently a tool for the anti Christ? The plot is bad the premise while interesting is poorly expanded upon and the writing is just bad bad badI actually read another book also by a conservative Christian on the same theme that was infinitely better It at least had a plot that could hold its own and left you wondering what would happen next I wish I could remember the name of it I'd recommend people who like this sort of stuff read it At least they might think at some point during their readingAlas this book was just inane offensive drivel

    I'd totally forgot that my mom actually paid me 50 dollars to read this book when I was about 11 or 12 Yeah she's pretty religious She wanted me to read the second and third books of the series as well I think I may have lied about reading the second one in order to get another payment The memory's a bit fuzzy on this The whole thing is actually kind of unsettling the I think about it It's a bit of a drag having parents that really believe in Jesus and heaven and hellOh and obviously this book was utterly terrible
