Pilot Rayford Steele is contemplating adultery with a young flight attendant when over 100 of his passengers simply vanish, leaving vacated clothes and bewildered companions. Rayford and the others left behind must deal with mass chaos on top of personal loss. Among the passengers still left is star reporter Cameron "Buck" Williams, who just got the assignment of a lifetime: find out what happened and why. Theories abound, from Christian Rapture to alien abduction. Buck suspects secret meetings between international power brokers are somehow connected. And rising political icon Nicolae Carpathia seems to be at the center of it all.

"An intriguing perspective on Bible prophecy"
OK, not everyone will agree with the End Times view of the authors, but then again this is fiction. Personally, I really enjoyed this and would recommend the Left Behind series wholeheartedly. Whether you agree with it or not, it will certainly get you thinking.
This is a facinating series.
"Can you drop me off here, I WANT to be left behind"
It may be a little unfair to review a book I didn't finish but this book is so uninteresting. The characters are just so dreary that I couldn't care less about their plight. The dialog (and there's a lot of it) is as dull as a Sunday afternoon political discussion programme. It's one of those books where you feel you can go and make a cup of tea without pausing it because you know that nothing important is going to happen because nothing is happening full stop. It sounded like an intriguing idea and it had a high rating on Amazon but it beats me what people see in it.
