False advertisement: sci-fi yes, but also proselytizing religious conversion
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 14, 2017
Talk about your mixed emotions. Do I give this book four stars because the writing is pretty darn good and the science fiction part of the story is well laid out? Or do it give it two stars because I felt totally set up by a religious blindside of false advertisement?
Somewhere deep into the middle of the book it became clear that the whole things was a prelude to a Christian prophecy that was headed to Biblical scriptures and personal religious revelations. That was where I stopped reading.
Let me be very clear here, I am not against Christian books of any type - romance, scifi, thriller, whatever . . . Like this one, they can be well written. It's the fact that in the blurb or description it was not stated, suggested, or even hinted at, that this was a Christian focused book. I find that to be basically underhanded or even sneaky. It feels like bait and switch, and the author doesn't respect readers enough to be honest about what the real theme is.
So, if you are a scifi buff and are looking for Christian focused books, you'll pretty much love this book. However, if being mislead bothers you, then don't start because you'll either feel jerked around or even angry and probably quit reading.
