Reviews - What do customers think about The Showdown (Left Behind: The Kids #13)?
One of the best LBK... Jan 21, 2007
This series is great- not the best writing, but I love it, especially the first books (after #13-15, the series starts to go downhill). Book 12 ended on a huge cliffhanger (if you're a Ryan fan like me) and The Showdown answers those questions. Beware, it is really, really sad. I was almost crying and I never cry while reading books.
WOW!! Oct 10, 2005
I loved the book so much that I couldn't put it down. I read it in less then 24 hours and I am a slow reader. I highly encourage you to read this book. It is safe to read because both the authors are strong Christians and the book is Bible based.
Series for adults now rewritten for teens Dec 25, 2004
I have always enjoyed the adult series of Left Behind books. The kids books are just as good. The kids interact with the characters from the adult series, experience the same events, etc. However, since the main characters are teens, these books can appeal to younger readers. So far, the stories haven't had the ups and downs that the adult series has had. The adult series has books that are a lot more boring than others. The kids series seems to be good in every book. These are not for really young kids, but would be appropriate for young teens. I enjoy them and I am an adult.
WOW! Sep 28, 2003
The Young Trib Force has just faced God's latest Judgement, and now all four are seperated and must find a way back to each other. Judd mourns the loss of a new friend, and tries to stay alive. He is captured by a group of GC fanatics, and must make a hard decision and risk his safety to tell a woman about the truth. Vicki finally makes it back to Mount Prospect and reunites with some friends. Vicki worries about Ryan, and is on a frantic search for him. Where could he have gone? Lionel was hit on the head, and now can't remember anything. He discovers a Bible, and through his new friend Conrad, tries to dsicover who he was. Through a series of drills, the two, along with Melinda and Felica head up a new unit of GC known as Morale Moniters and return to Illinois. Could the answers he is searching for be there? Meanwhile, Ryan suffers a painful injury and fights for his survival. Is this be the end here on earth for the youngest member of the Young Trib Force? Just a warning: this is an emotional book, and you should have a box of tissues ready! I loved this book, and the plot really fit together, and charcter development has grown so much through the series, you become so emotionally attached, its hard to let anyone go. This is one of my very favorites in the series, and if you've read the books so far, you need to get this one! The cliffhanger at the end is just wonderful, and I suggest buying book 14 along with it!
This book is great!!! May 14, 2001
I really liked this book not only because it informs us about the End Times but it keeps you one the edge of your seat. The way the author brings the kids together and all the exciting events they go through keep you wanting to read all the books in the series. I really liked the way the author makes each character have a different situation which shows that when the Rapture happens anyone can be left behind. Unless of course you are a Christian.
