A Compelling Read Jul 24, 2008
Angela Hunt will be our keynote speaker at the ACFW conference in September. I was delighted to learn my friend Rosanna owned several of Angela's books.
Last night I started reading The Immortal and I could not put it down. Well, I did when I couldn't keep my eyes open. But this afternoon I picked it back up and finished it.
WOW. Angela Hunt's story telling skill held me spellbound. No wonder her books hit the best seller list. The blurb about the book says it best:
Who is Asher Genzano? A fanatic? A religious zealot? A raving lunatic? Or is he what he says he is- a 2000-year-old man cursed with immortality and on a holy mission to prevent a global cataclysm?
Claudia Fischer's search for answers leads her into the past where myth, history, and prophecy intertwine in ancient legends of the Wandering Jew, biblical warnings about the Antichrist, and eyewitness accounts of the Crucifixion, the Inquisition, the Holocaust. What Claudia learns challenges everything she believes . . . about life, love, and God.
I gotta go. I have more Angela Hunt books to read.
Excellent Jun 29, 2007
I almost skipped over this book, but found it in a used bookstore and thought I would take a chance. I am SO glad I did! This was one of the best books I have ever read - based on the Legend of the Wandering Jew. The book is exciting, contemporary, the characters are well-developed ... and has no connection to the Left Behind series (see previous review that makes no sense). You're going to like this one! I found myself trying to cast actors into the characters - because it would make a wonderful movie. A gem.
One of Hunts best Dec 6, 2006
I have to admit, the book started rather slowly for me and I almost abandoned it on several occasions, but I rated it 5 stars because once it got going and the story line started unfolding, I couldn't put it down. It's not a thriller or supsense in any way, and yet "page-turner" would be very appropriate.
I've read some of Hunts other books and so far, The Immortal is by far my favorite. An intriguing story, memorable characters, and almost palpable setting make this book a must-read. And if you enjoy history, there's an added bonus.
If you get this book, stick it out through the first couple of chapters. You'll be rewarded with a grand story that will leave you thinking about it for days afterward. Highly recommended!
The story line is to familiar to Left Behind Series Sep 3, 2006
I hate to say this but I have checked the copyright dates and it is my firm belief this book was written by the author after reading The Left Behind Series. This book was very slow and disappointing in the end. This book just did not sit well with me. The author should try next time to come up with more original works so that a reader has not been given the option from another author to compare the "earily similiar story lines."
Hunt delivers another winner Oct 4, 2005
This book was not what I expected from reading some of Hunt's other works, and at first I was a little put off. But as I continued to read, I was drawn into this story about a man's quest to find the Anti-Christ and stop his rise to power. There's so many books and movies on the market about end times, and the message of this book resonates strongly in the current climate of looking for the apocalypse: Don't go looking for signs of the Anti-Christ or the end of the world, but live your life for Christ and tell others about Him and His love. Claudia's growth as a woman is wonderful to read, and her relationship with Asher speaks volumes. There were a few cardboard characters, and the issue of Kirsten's accident was never addressed, but overall this is a great book.
