I've enjoyed these books and yet I have one REAL BIG problem with them so far. Everyone knows that when you read fiction you have to be prepared to suspend disbelief and tell yourself: "Okay, it's just a book. Everything doesn't have to make sense." That's fine to a point. But the LEFT BEHIND series is about events described in the Bible, and it seems to me should be held to a little bit higher standard. I don't expect perfection: the Bible is perfect, everything else is just a book. But I do expect a Christian novel to be thought out well enough by the author(s) that it's not shot full of holes by anyone with a high school education. I have struggled with this since I read the first book in the series, but have not wanted to criticize the books when there was nothing better on the subject out there to recommend. Well, now I've found something, THE CHRIST CLONE TRILOGY by James BeauSeigneur. BeauSeigneur has done so much to insure credibility and...
Okay--I had to give it two stars..because although it's written on a 5th grade level (and thats being generous), with 2 dimensional characters, unbelievably naiive plot line, totally ludicrous scenarios and 375 average pages of "filler"--guess what? we're still reading it...so I figure the marketing alone ought to be worth at least a star-- even if we read it for no other reason that to reassure ourselves that if they can do it...maybe we CAN give up our day jobs :-) I've read all three, The Left Behind series, The Christ Clone Trilogy, and We All Fall Down. The winner: The Christ Clone triology. We All Fall Down (Cauldwell) I actually found offensive. Can the guy write a page without using four letter words?? He does EXACTLY what Left Behind does---only on the other end of the scale. Very disappointing, and started with such a very promising premise. The Christ Clone Trilogy however, is really quite an enjoyable read. An Antichrist that you can see folks...
My disappointment with "The Mark" began as I was standing in the checkout line to buy this much awaited, much anticipated book. Leafing through it I noticed that while it was the same size and PRICE, the print was bigger and the lines were almost double spaced. Hmmmmm. Kinda stretching this one, eh boys? Then there was the actual story line. I'd previously described these books to a friend as "the worst written books I've ever loved." No one has ever debated whether or not they're great literature, because they aren't. But they've been engrossing and exciting, and they give you lots to think about. And, up until book 8, I felt they were right-on regarding scripture. Unfortunately, for the purpose of being able to keep up their covert operations within the palace of the beast, they've created a character that has both the mark of Christ AND the mark of the beast. That is a very dangerous and utterly anti-scriptural idea to plant in people's heads. I can't by into...
