Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh Ann | 2/7/2014

    " This is the 5th and final installment to the series by Rosenberg that I've been hooked on all summer. I'm sad to see it end! It was a wonderful, yet scary/spooky series as I've seen fiction written in the book actually start to play out in America. The last book wasn't as good as the rest of the series but still well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 1/29/2014

    " This book was AWFUL...I mean the subject is scary...all about the end of the world, and it made me think....are we getting closer every day?? Of course! It is the latter days, is it not? And where are our politicians taking us??? Closer to the final destruction of this world! Great series!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystal | 1/1/2014

    " I liked this book and this series. It's not exactly an uplifting read, but one that makes you think...and hope that the events in the books don't come true! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charyla Olsen | 12/25/2013

    " This book is almost too overwhelming but certainly sheds light on the fact that evil is real and needs to be addressed. Rosenberg is now "done" with his five-in-a-series novels--and I'm kind of glad so I can get on with reading other stuff. But he's thought provoking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler | 12/16/2013

    " It's been on my "to-read" shelf for a while now. Thanks for inspiring me to pick it up, Donna! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelley | 11/12/2013

    " The final book in the series... definitely the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 10/18/2013

    " Another great book from Joel Rosenberg. Really makes you think about the current events happening today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 RW | 10/13/2013

    " Final in series of end-times events. The ending leaves you hanging and in suspense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashlyn | 9/8/2013

    " This is an incredible book with a very real message- The whole series is very very excellent. If you like political thrillers these books are the ones you should read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ted Gambles | 8/20/2013

    " Of the series, this book is the least interesting. Perhaps it was the strong emphasis on the "Rapture," but it seemed less "page-turning" then the others. All in all, it was a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie West | 7/2/2013

    " Awesome book...will really make you think "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Norman R. | 6/7/2013

    " I have read all of Rosenberg's books and to date this one is the best! He has his thumb on the heart beat of our nation and the Islamic world. Much of what he has already written has come true! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karyn | 4/12/2013

    " The end of the series and it went out with a bang! Worth a re-read! Kuddos to Joel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 3/30/2013

    " Good book with a good ending! I really liked the entire series but this one seemed to drag at times - maybe the series was simply one book too long! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 3/29/2013

    " It took me a while to get started in reading this one but once I did. It read quickly and flowed well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maynard Lewis | 1/24/2013

    " For the most part I found the story interesting. However, once finished I felt a need to remove my brain and have it dried, as an attempt had been made by the author to thoroughly wash it. The style is preachy (literally) and driven by personal ideology, motives and beliefs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 2/12/2012

    " Another in the series. Fast moving and thought provoking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 1/14/2012

    " Wow, great read. Can't put this one down, reads like a James Patterson or John Grisham - compelling. Best biblical prophecy fiction!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen May-kim | 6/15/2011

    " A fantastic Read. Keep me flipping pages right from the beginning. Closer to the end I thought some of the situations were a little far-fetched, however I enjoyed it. Politics and Religion were quite incorporated in a book that makes you wonder if the situation could actually happen someday..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 10/17/2010

    " Perhaps because I didn't read the earlier books in the series I wasn't as enthralled as others who did. Poorly edited with many typographical errors which is surprising. I personally prefered The Left Behind series for end times fiction. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allen | 10/9/2010

    " Great premise, great story, great writing, but way too much preaching... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 andrew key | 7/7/2010

    " the single most odious, disgusting, vomit-inducing book i've ever read. avoid as you would a leper. i feel sick at having to give it even one star. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 4/3/2010

    " Best book in the series, but make sure you read the others first. Can't wait to see what he writes next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Floridafosters | 1/10/2010

    " Excellent!! Action-packed and absolutely riveting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Welch | 11/7/2009

    " Conclusion to saga which I found exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 10/13/2009

    " This book was AWFUL...I mean the subject is scary...all about the end of the world, and it made me think....are we getting closer every day?? Of course! It is the latter days, is it not? And where are our politicians taking us??? Closer to the final destruction of this world! Great series!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 2/19/2009

    " Great fiction based on military, political, and religious research about the current events of the Middle East and the United States. Predictions are made as to the possible invasion and distruction of our political system. Could it happen? Can we stop it? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 1/19/2009

    " One will get much more enjoyment by starting at this beginning of this series of books by Joel, The Last Jihad is the first book. It is exciting and will keep your interest until the last page of all of them. One of those series the author couldn't write fast enough for me. "
