Much better narration!

This is a brilliant, inspiring Biblical series telling of the end of the world with amazing realism. It has brought me so much closer to God. The rise of the Antichrist and his speeches and thoughts are such a warning and insight into how Satan lies and schemes against us for our overthrow. Especially when he finally tells the truth about his pure evil halfway thru chapter 8. Richard Ferrone is one of two narrators for this series. The other has an irritating style with a cowboyish drawl. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. Richard is much better, more varied and expressive, but he's a bit rubbish at accents. Everyone, whether Jordanian, Chinese, Israeli or German, has the same American accent, all the wonen have deep male voices, and his attempts at British have me in tears of laughter. (60 years out of date, from an ancient 40s movie! 🤣) They also can't agree on pronunciation of foreign names. Richard says "Zion" in the first few books, but after hearing the other pronounce it "Tseeyone" he stsrts copying him. However, he still says "Abdullah" and Hassid", the other says "Abdoolah" and "Hasseed". He's not afraid to sing when called for in the text, and has quite a nice singing voice. (though you do have to use imagination when listening to "Chloe" singing in a baritone!)

This series should have ended a long time ago

Like most people I love this series - the first 4 or so books were great but these later ones make entire story lines out of the smallest "incidents" and it's clear the author(s) are struggling to keep the series going. Armageddon isn't even a story - you could completely skip this book and still walk away from the series without having missed anything significant. I will keep listening to the end - but this book (and the last 2) have been terrible. If only they could all be as good as the first 4.

Great Christian Fiction

If you keep in mind that this is fiction based on the Bible you will have the right frame of reference. While a lot of the story does have ties back into the Bible it does not intend on replacing it. Its an easy place for some to "get the bug" for faith although ultimately they need to be pointed to the only true authoritative source, the Bible.
I thoroughly enjoyed the series and recommended it to many friends. Unlike the movies, I found the books well done, and well produced.

Love it

I love the Left Behind series. But it drives me crazy how Farone says Petra. It is pronounced Pay-tra not Pee-tra

nail biting

I'm about to start the last book in the series... Don't know if I'm happy about it or super sad about it! I have really enjoyed every one of the books and the entire series thus far. I highly recommend this to anybody especially anybody that is new in faith or just sitting on the outskirts of having faith. glorious appearing here I come!

Things Are Getting Intense

As I have said in my reviews of each previous book in the series till this point: If you are a Christian, I would recommend this book to you not only as an excellent work of fiction but as a kind of companion to a Bible study of the book of Revelation. While I am not a minister or a Bible scholar, as a Christian these books are very accurate, and I know my understanding of the book of Revelation has been expanded through this series. If you are not a Christian, I would recommend this book to you as an excellent work of fiction (which it is), and if it (re)awakens questions you haven’t asked in a very long time, if at all, then I would encourage you to seek answers like the characters in this series. Find a Bible and a church that preaches Christ, that if you are willing to hear it you may know the truth. With only two books to go in the Left Behind series LayHaye and Jenkins are pulling out all the stops. Armageddon may be the most emotional book in the series so far (in my opinion). One thing that stood out to me was the handling of the deaths in this book, one was quick, unexpected, and totally startling; another opted for a slower route, breaking your heart with the anticipation, wondering if there was a possibility that it might not happen. The cliffhanger that was the last scene caught me completely off guard. It was very well written and the way the writers only used he, his, and him instead of the name so you couldn’t tell whose perspective you were listening to is something I may have to try in my own writing. As for the narration, overall I really enjoyed Ferrone’s work in this book. He paced his voice well, had emotional and empathetic voice acting, and his voice changed depending on who was talking while not over dramatizing every sentence. The only criticism I might have is that there are three names he pronounced differently than in the past (and possibly incorrectly). Zion, usually pronounced Zigh/in has been pronounced as Zee/own in the last couple of books. David Haasid (I hope I’ve spelt his name correctly), usually pronounced Hah/seed was pronounced as Ha/sid in this book. And Abdula, usually pronounced as Ab/doo/la has been pronounced as Ab/du/la in the last couple books. These didn’t really detract from the experience, but I am curious as to why Ferrone began pronouncing them differently. I can’t wait to see how the final act of this story unfolds (though spoiler, I’ve read Revelation, and we win).
