I have read all of the books and enjoyed every word. I think it is mostly because of the subject matter and it is interesting to read and then go look some of this stuff up in the BIBLE. Revelations is really a blow your mind book. The Left Behind movies and books come from two men who built a story around the happenings in Revelations. I just love this kind of stuff. Are the books poetry? No. Best writing ever? No. I got hooked on the characters and the story and want to know what happens next. I was disappointed in the first movie. I may not see the second one.
