As one who always reads other reviews before reading and reviewing a book, I feel like I should respond to what some of the other reviewers have to say. First of all, some complain that the writing style is too sophomoric.
Well, every writer has his voice, and how interesting would the world be if everyone wrote or spoke exactly the same way?
Yes, the writing style is simple, but that just makes the book s lahye too read. Secondly, as to the complaints that the books are sexist, that’s just si As one who always reads other reviews before reading and reviewing a book, I feel like I should respond to what some of the other reviewers have to say. Secondly, as to the complaints that the books are sexist, that’s just silly. Apollyno fact, you can even see that the writers probably felt obligated to respond to those claims by giving the character Chloe some strange dialogue, such as telling Tsion that she felt insulted when he called her a “precious little one.
Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I feel that the writers have come a good distance with character development, as I find myself actually caring what happens to them and feeling some emotion gim what they are going through.

They learn, they grow, they make mistakes, they are as human as fictional characters could be. Also, the writers have gotten better at building suspense.
There is no immediate gratification when something mysterious comes up — sometimes you have to wait several chapters to find out what is going on. And lahaue, they do a good job keeping you guessing with who is the “good guy” and who is an “impostor. I will definitely continue on in this series. View all 3 comments.

Things continue to pick up as the world faces more and more Trumpet Judgements. With the so-called blessing of aplllyon Antichrist, Nicolae Carpathia, the great conference of witnesses is scheduled to occur in Israel. After being exonerated of earlier accusations of Appollyon is the fifth book in the Left Behind Series.
Carpathia, not wanting to be outshone, makes a special guest appearance. Here he tries lxhaye assure lahwye of his open and passive nature. He does not see any reason for open hostility. He wants everyone to practice the religion they believe in but wants this group to join the One World Faith. What he gets instead is a crowd that refuses to listen to him. It is on the last day of this conference that all hell breaks loose.
There is a Global Community attack which forces the Tribulation Force to flee. But their escape back to the States does not go as planned. As they are running from the helicopter to the plane that will fly them to safety, one of our beloved members is shot and killed. Buck is unable to make it onto the plane at all leaving him injured and stranded in Israel. This is bad news for Buck since he is an international fugitive from the GC. Meanwhile Hattie is rushed to the hospital.
She is pregnant, but battling a severe illness, or more likely she is suffering from being poisoned by Carpathia. Will her baby survive? Do we want to know what the child of the Antichrist looks like? Chloe goes into labor while he is in Israel.
Once again this book is one hell of a page-turner. You find yourself wondering if our Tribulation Force will ever catch a break knowing fully well that they will not. Not until they die and meet their maker or until the Glorious Appearing where they will be rewarded for their efforts. Their burden gets stronger by the day. They must save every soul they can and the window of opportunity is getting smaller and smaller.
I am so glad lahhaye I made the decision to pick these up this year.
Apollyon (novel) – Wikipedia
I have been fully immersed in this world that LeHaye and Jenkins have created. There is almost nothing I enjoy more than an end of the world tale. And this is proving to be a super fun and exciting apollyonn. In this, the fifth book of the “Left Behind” series, the writing has definitely improved, for the most part. Another big improvement is a noticeable lessening of illogical actions and events that were so annoying in earlier volumes. That is not to say that is is completely lacking, though.
In this book, we are reminded of the revelation in the “Soul Harvest” that Carpathia had Bruce Barnes poisoned. The question is, “Why?
At the time, Bruce and the “Tribulation Force” as a whole was no great In this, the fifth book of the “Left Behind” series, the writing has definitely improved, for the most part.
At the time, Bruce and the “Tribulation Force” as a whole was no great threat to either Carpathia or the Global Community. The story, however, is still the same flaccid, tepid series of escapes, rescues, and chases that we have become used to from these authors. It also shows the same lack of imagination that has plagued this series from the beginning.
Once again, the action reads like something stolen lahayd a second rate him or a two bit TV show and are further robbed of any tension or suspense by the characters constantly reminding each other that God is protecting them, so they are, ultimately, safe from any serious harm. Add in the fact that the authors have given me no real reason to care about the characters, and what should have been exciting scenes crackling with tension and concern are nothing more than just a boring sequence of words.
Even the title of the book is nothing more than a cheap attempt to grab the readers’ interest. Apollyon, “chief demon of the abyss”, never puts in an appearance.
When his horde of demon locusts finally put in an appearnce, about two-thirds of the way in, they are only there for about two chapters and are not all that terrifying. They sting people once, causing swelling and pain, and then move on.
Perhaps that is the greatest downfall of these books: These events should be terrifying and heart-rending, but come across as limp and comical. Witness the slapstick scene of Bo and Ernie trying to escape the locusts. Even the descriptions of scenes of decadence and liscentiousness are watered down to the point where the most abominable actions include men kissing other men and horrors of horrors! These books aren’t just a waste of time and paper. They are also a waste of a great opportunity to give us frightening, exciting, gut-wrenching stories.
