April 28 has come and gone Apr 30, 2007
And Pat's still here. So much for the Rapture Pat.
Has its good parts but overall not very good. Mar 15, 2007
I'm not a Christian but I thought the story seemed interesting and I found a copy cheap so I decided to give this book a try. At first glance, "End of the Age" is a high concept novel. A meteor hits Earth. Large parts of America and Asia are destroyed. It's an interesting scenario and in some ways, the book is well researched as far as what some of the consequences would be if that happened.
In the hands of a good fiction writer, this concept could have been made into a great novel, but it's obvious that Robertson doesn't just want to tell a story. He can't avoid preaching and voicing his personal political and religious opinions. If you're a fan of Robertson, you won't mind, but if you're not, you will find it too preachy. [...]
The book is not without merits. It has some good points and the feeling of global disaster, affecting the whole planet with no place to escape, is created in a surprisingly effective way. Although, at times I get the feeling that Robertson really enjoys wallowing in the disaster he imagines will come. There book also lacks any multidimensional characters and a protagonist. As a result, the book soon starts to feel like a long list of earthquakes, floods and volcanic eruptions. Especially in the last third of the book the pace slows down too much. There's also too much that distracts from the narrative to make it a good novel. Except for the blatant preaching and hatred of non-Christians, a large portion of the book is taken up by long scenes of bible study. If you want to learn about Christian end times beliefs, I'm sure there are lots of non-fiction books about it out there, although Robertson does not share the pre-tribulational views of Tim LaHaye and Hal Lindsey. In this novel, the Christians are not "raptured" before the tribulation.
As a novel, "The End of the Age" is honestly somewhat better than I expected from Robertson. It is superior to the neverending, tedious, "Left Behind" novels, but it still has many flaws. There are better ways to spend the hours it takes reading it. I am sure many Robertson fans will like it better.
Apocalypse According to Pat Apr 25, 2006
I read evangelist Pat Robertson's "The End of the Age." Not bad for a first novel.
Revelation's Beast and False Prophet were American politicians allied with a UN type world government. No richly crafted characters here, just caricatures-Valery is Hillary Clinton, and a dumb movie-actor [Ronald Regan?] was in the White House for a while.
Not recommended for liberals.
Really didn't like it. Jul 20, 2005
First off, I'm not a fan of the writing style. It covers so much information and time with little dialogue, or characters for that matter. But that's just the style. The way the story was presented was what I had a problem with.
It seemed like the author had a lot of interesting ideas on what he thought the end times would be like, and he didn't want to write an end-times non-fiction spiritual book, so he just presented it as fiction, but didn't quite know how to do that.
Characters are introduced simply to experience the asteroid plumetting into the earth. Then, they drop off. All of a sudden, near the end, they come back, and now they're like generals or something, or leading some kind of airstrike during the battle of Armaggedon. WHAT?!
This book is a grid, a blueprint for a certain way it COULD happen. It is not a story about people, or a story with a plot. It is just a list of events that read on until Jesus comes.
The only reason I gave it two stars was because it didn't follow the whole rapture-theory at all(that word isn't in the Bible, and even implications of one doesn't say WHEN during the tribulation it would be). In this story, the Christians are here for the whole thing, and everything isn't quite so set and orlderly and expected like the Left Behind series. It follows the premise that throughout the last century or so, we've already experienced the Seal Judgements, and that the asteroid hitting earth is the beginning of a great cataclysm that mankind is about to face.
IF you want a different take and aren't expecting much of anything else, read this, but not if you want a real story with passion or voice.
Very Good Read May 9, 2005
This is a good book to read. It plays out like a Christian version of Lucifer's Hammer. It also works better than the Left Behind works. I enjoyed it.
