I'd never heard of the "Left Behind series" so I wasn't sure I'd fully appreciate this read. No worries. Spirits lifted, no waiting! I'm fond of Lee's twisted cast, and I can't wait to see what happens to them next. I hope volume two's not far behind.

Raptured was (is) a great book for giving parodys on politics, religions, & the elite media. Of course, anyone who is addicted to FoxNews & CNN & the like may not be able to handle any such comedy/laughter. Then again, any one who likes Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert will like this.

Format: Paperback
Satire this ain't - it's too good-humoured - and parts of it are plain puerile, but, like Fifty Shames of Earl Grey, for those of us who can't bear to read junk it provides a comparable illicit thrill, like Saturday morning TV when you're really a bit too old for it. Did I tell you I loved it? I'm taking it REEEL slow..
