Book #128: Not for me.

I have heard about Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days  (and the series it launched) for two decades and I wasn't too displeased to have been assigned it by a student this semester.

 Before reading the book I knew it was Christian, millenialistic and apocalyptic, so I think the book had less impact on me than it would have 20 years ago.

 I didn't know if I would like it or not, and after about 100 pages I really hated being stuck with these flat characters in this post-rapture but pre-9/11 world of strange 90s technology.
