I loved, and devoured, the "Left Behind" series too, Cora. It was well written and the characters pulled me in.

Re: Community Room

I just finished reading Spook by Mary Roach and I am currently reading Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, but I have put it down temporarily to read The Wake of Forgiveness which I am really enjoying.

Have you read

 

Rapture Ready! by Daniel Radosh; Rapture Ready! (paperback)?

 

It was featured on the religion board a few months ago.  I resisted reading it, but found it fascinating when I did.  I disagreed with a number of the observations; the author did not seem skilled in many of the biblical and religious faith distinctions writers like Marcus Borg (e.g., Embracing an Adult FaithLiving The Heart of ChristianityReading the Bible Again For the First Time) or Walter Brueggemann (e.g., Awed to Heaven, Rooted in EarthThe Bible Makes SenseBiblical Perspectives on Evangelism) can make, but Radosh himself comes from a different faith tradition (Jewish).  But it was fascinating to see what he saw. 

 

There is also a related web site.

Re: Community Room

I just started reading The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I don't know how I missed this book when it came out. I am finding it fascinating and easy to read so far. It is long but seems worth putting the time into it.

If any of you have read it, let me know what you thought of it and what I should pay special attention to. Thanks.

Re: Community Room

Wonder how many people in the FL club has read past a few chapters thus far?

I am 1/2 way thru the book already; had to slow myself to re-read a few passages & chapters because I was so getting lost by the language

Re: Community Room

Get ready for some late nights reading The Passage. It is somewhat reminiscent of Stephen King's The Stand. I've looked at Resurrection in May.  What did you think of it?

Re: Community Room

It's a good book. I would recommend keeping track of the people at first. That was tedious for me until the story really got going.  =)

Re: Community Room

I really enjoyed "Resurrection in May," although parts were hard to read. I found the reading to be fast paced because I wanted to know what happened.  =)
