"The Red Horse of the Apocalypse was on the rampage."
This is a horribly boring book. It made me feel as if I had brain rot. The first 400 pages are a complete reiteration of the first book, Left Behind. Because the first book and the first 400 of this one as well, are about what happens in the first few weeks after the tribulation, there is very little plot and it moves along at less than a snail's pace.
All of the characters are incredibly shallow. They don't evoke any emotion or concern for themselves, the lost world around them, or the tragic events that rip their lives apart. No main character in the story resists God or salvation, and Buck, yeah, Buck has long hair that he blow dries.
OK, so what do the authors take 450 pages to tell us? Buck gets to meet the wall wailers and moves to NY to be a publisher of the Anti-Christ's newspaper, Rayford becomes the pilot for the Anti-Christ and inexplicably gets married, a leading Rabbi gets saved and announces on TV that Jesus is the Messiah, Bruce dies, Chloe finally marries the world renown and virgin journalist Buck and last but not least the treaty signaling the beginning if the tribulation is signed in Jerusalem. All of which would easily have fit on the back of this massive volume. It might also be worth noting that both marriages including Rayford and Amanda's entire relationship and Bruce's death all happen in the last 50 pages, and yes, the wedding IS a double ceremony.
