The Mark

I finished listening to The Mark by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B Jenkins. It is the 8th book of the Left Behind series. There are 13 books in the series.

Warning: there are several sad parts.

This book is terrible and sad. Not terrible as in writing, etc. But terrible as in how people in the book really believe that Nicolae is God. It’s sad how people act in the book. The Mark is about the mark of the Anti-Christ. David’s secret girlfriend is killed at the “funeral” by lightening. David almost dies too. Nicolae orders guillotines to use on people who don’t take the mark. A few women refuse the mark. Nicolae also orders a pig to ride on when he goes to Jerusalem. Rayford and the others find a safe house and move in. One of the believers gets the mark of the Anti-Christ. (I think he will die in the next book.)

I really do like this series. Next I’m listening to Paradise Lost by John Milton.

The Indwelling

Yesterday I finished listening to The Indwelling by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B Jenkins. It is the 7th book of the Left Behind book series. There are 13 books in the series.

Warning: there is one sad part.

The Indwelling is about an Indwelling. Lol  In this book, Rayford is on the run because he thinks he has killed Nicolae.  Nicolae does die.  But much later on Rayford learns that he didn’t kill him. But he is a scapegoat anyway. They make it look like he kills him. They didn’t think a stroke victim could kill. But the stroke victim wasn’t really frail. Buck goes searching for his friend. When he finds him, they both get on a plane with one tire. The plane crashes and the pilot dies. (I don’t like he dies. I think he should have lived.) The secret safe house gets known by the GC. Rayford and the others race there to get stuff out before GC gets there. Nicolae comes back from the dead within three days. He says he is God. (He’s not of course.)

I did like this book. I really like the guy narrating the books. Now I’m listening to The Mark by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B Jenkins. It’s the 8th book of the Left Behind series.

The Charlemagne Pursuit

I finished listened to The Charlemagne Pursuit by Steve Berry. This is the fourth book of the Cotton Malone book series. There are 12 books in the book series.

This book deals with Charlemagne, Cotton’s father, and an unknown society of people.  In Charlemagne Pursuit, Cotton finally finds out what happened to his father. The Navy says his submarine sunk in the ocean. Cotton didn’t really believe that. So he asked his former boss for the file on his father. That started events that led him back into trouble. The file said his father went to Antarctica. It was a secret mission. On a quest, Cotton and some others found out about an unknown society of people that taught others about modern type of things. (not aliens thank goodness. ) In the end, he found his father and got to finally bury him in a proper grave.

I really liked this book. I’m glad to find out what to happened to Cotton’s father. Now I’m listening to The Indwelling by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B Jenkins.

The Venetian Betrayal

I finished reading yesterday The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry. It is the third book of the Cotton Malone book series. There are 12 books in the series.

Warning: there is some violence.

The past two books I read of Steve Berry’s dealt with the Bible. This one deals with Alexander The Great,   the Iliad,  and HIV. Yes, a weird combination. In Venetian Betrayal, Cotton is forced back into trouble. He is asked by  Cassiopeia Vitt to a museum. The museum, though, is set ablaze with a special type of fire. He barely escapes alive.  Cassiopeia Vitt tells him that she and a special friend of hers are on the quest to find Alexander The Great’s  grave and to stop another woman from finding it and causing a huge war. That other woman is obsessed with The Iliad and Alexander The Great. One of her associates has found a cure for every disease, especially HIV. It is learned that Cassiopeia Vitt has HIV. Cotton and others do find Alexander The Great’s grave and the cure.  Cassiopeia Vitt and her friend drink the cure.

I really liked this book. I do wish that cure wasn’t fictional though. Now I’m listening to  The Charlemagne Pursuit by Steve Berry.

Apollyon

I finished listening to Apollyon by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B Jenkins. It is the fifth book of the Left Behind book series. There are 10 books in the series.

Warning: there is a cliffhanger ending and one sad part.

In Apollyon, Rayford learns that Amanda had been a spy for Nicolae. He wasn’t convinced that she was a spy. Hattie tells Rayford that Amanda wasn’t a spy. She had made it look like that. Hattie gets poisoned by Nicolae and ends up losing her baby. She pledges to kill Nicolae. Rayford gets fired from being a pilot for Nicolae. He becomes friends with Ken, but later Ken gets killed. Nicolae tries to kill the two witnesses, but he fails to kill them. Then Nicolae tries to plead with them to stop the darkness. The sun becomes weaker for a short while. Then the demonic locusts appear. They don’t attack Rayford and the others. They did attack Hattie though. The locusts chant Apollyon. When Hatte got better, she does something selfish and stupid. She tries to see a teenager who isn’t a believer. She puts Chloe’s life and her baby in danger. She tries to hitch a plane to New Babylon but Rayford stops her. Chloe does give birth to a boy named Kenneth Bruce Williams.

I did like the book, but I didn’t like that Ken got killed and that Hattie was being selfish. Now I’m listening to Assassins by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B Jenkins. It’s the 6th book of the series. I’m finishing it today.

You can find Apollyon at Wordery.com, Kobo.com, and Downpour.com.

The Alexandria Link

I finished listening to The Alexandria Link by Steve Berry on Saturday.  It is the second book of the Cotton Malone book series. There are 12 books in the series. I am really loving Steve Berry’s books. So far these books really made me think.

Warning: there are one sad part and some violence.

In the Alexandria Link, Cotton Malone’s son gets kidnapped. The kidnapping was actually a ploy to get Cotton to led the bad guys to the Alexandria Link. The Alexandria Link was actually a person.  This person knew where the Alexandria Library was and had knowledge that they wanted to use to their benefit.  Cotton did get his son back. In the end, some of the bad guys were killed and the library is saved from getting exposed.

I do have the third book, but I’m reading now The Circle by Dave Eggers.  I’m almost through with it. I’m thinking about watching the movie Monday instead of Children of Men.

You can get The Alexandria Link at Wordery.com, Downpour.com, and Kobo.com.

Thirteen Reasons Why

I finished listening to Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I wanted to read/listen to the book before watching the new show on Netflix. I will be watching the first episode on Friday. I have heard

I have heard alot about this book, but I thought it wasn’t the book for me. But since they are making a tv show about it, I decided to read it. This book is great and it really affected me. I was bullied in school. I think her experience was worse than mine. (I know it’s a fictional book.) I did have suicidal thoughts, but I never attempted on it because of my best friend. I wouldn’t want to leave her behind. This book is very sad, but all I can say is wow. Thirteen Reasons Why is about a teenage boy named Clay Jensen who gets a package in the mail of cassette tapes. The package has no return address. Curious, he listens to one. The tapes are made by a girl named Hannah Baker. She had committed suicide and the tapes were her reasons why. Clay was in love with her. After listening to the book, I wonder what happens next. I just looked up and Netflix is going to make another season of the show. I’m now listening to The Alexandra Link by Steve Berry.
