The Second Coming
on April 20, 2010
An excellent read. I love how he wove so many belief systems and myths into a coherent story.
I am really hoping there is going to be a sequel, I really want to know how it all turns out.
I know just enough about technology to understand how easy it is becoming for the events in Acts of the Apostles to actually occur. Which honestly, scares the beejeebers out of me when I stop and think about it.
Sundman kept the action tight and fast paced, hurtling you along on an all to "real" thriller of a story.
Wonderfully written and delightfully disturbing read.
This was an amazing book to read.
All three of the main characters are amazing multi faceted people with flaws, quirks and are entirely too human in their need to be loved and to love. Watching this story unfold is kind of like coming up on a massive car accident. You know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it isn't going to be pretty and yet you can't look away. The emotions of each decision or lack of decision are so raw that it almost breaks your heart watching Claire as she slides into madness with Finn and tries desperately to find some kind of normal with Raoul. The characters are so real that you feel like you have been on an emotional roller-coaster ride by time it is over.
This book was beautifully written in an incredibly thought provoking and more than mildly disturbing way that will leave a lasting impression on you.
