A very grave tale concerning the end of days. Coincidently, most of the destruction to the US occurred in the pacific wall states (blue, left states), southern California suffering the worst, which may be a subtle insertion of Pat Robertson's political preferences. Politics aside, the story was too quick paced. This tribulation account would have been better if Robertson would have elaborated more by expanding this novel into a series of novels. Good detailed descriptions of violence, mayhem, catastrophe, and human suffering, but the story line is predictable. The novel's characters are accessible on a topical or acquaintance level. A series, like the Left Behind series, could have built a better relationship between the characters and the reader. I enjoyed reading this book so much, that i wish it could have been longer.
In general, I enjoy apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic novels, which is the only reason I ever got this book. I found it fairly hard to finish this book, for the expected reason, the fact that Mr. Robertson tries to use it as an indoctrination tool. This is NOT Science Fiction. There are several places where he tries to make it sound like a mainstream science fiction novel, and fails. The description of the 'meteor' strike and the ensuing earthquake chain are the most glaring examples.It is very much a Fundamentalist Christian novel. He quotes heavily from the Bible, and pretty much ignores other religious beliefs, other than to demonize Hindu religions. If you aren't Christian, you are EVIL is the final takeaway from it.
