    1. Amazing end-of-the-world story-telling from a relatively unknown writer. Ok, so it's arguably not as "spiritual" as, say, the Left Behind series, but it's at least ten times better in every other respect--plus, it covers the entire apocalypse in a single volume. Feels like a cross between Michael Crichton and Umberto Eco. It's not perfect--it's a tad too long, and the ending is a little weak--but Jane Jensen delivers here one of the most ambitious, assured debut novels I've ever read. Ok, maybe [...]

    2. My first introduction to the writings of Jane Jensen were as the Gabriel Knight computer games (Sins of the Fathers, The Beast Within and Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned) which both my wife and I are quite fond of and are well written and paced games.Due to my interest in these games and their author, by surfing the internet to see if a 4th game was forthcoming, I came across the notion that she had written stand alone books of which this is one.The overall premise of this book is that [...]

    3. Despite not being religious, or perhaps because of it, I'm intrigued by thrillers with an end-of-the-world bent. Here, thousands of people gather in Mexico. A small group of them -- each from different walks of life and religious (or non-religious) backgrounds -- claims to have been instructed by differing messengers to travel to Mexico to receive visions or experience miracles. Afterward, each predicts certain apocalyptic events that come to pass. Father Michele Deauchez, on assignment from the [...]

    4. I went into this book with an expectation of 'an end-of-the-world' scenario with suspense and a solid plot. This novel is a better attempt but it has several lapses in keeping up the suspense and trying to add too much. At one point, biblical prophecies,secret societies, religious organization-engineered plots, aliens, political power plays, economic, natural, and social upheaval are all thrown into the mix. All this confuses one and makes one stop reading to try and find out the direction of th [...]

    5. Could someone actually fake the apocalypse, and could they have a good reason to try? A young Italian priest is sent by the Vatican to Mexico to investigate a Marian apparition and becomes involved with a diverse group of religious visionaries from around the world who are all prophesying the immanent end of the world.

    6. Everybody needs to read this book. it's so amazing how Jane Jensen write and create a big story with many beliefs. you can't stop to read and the most important, how 15 years ago was published a book with many things that are happening just right now. it's like read to Orwell, Huxley

    7. This was one of THE BEST books I have ever read. Kept me wanting to turn every page! I've recommended this to a lot of people. Scary, thriller, nerve-wracking has everything that a reader could want in a book and has no slow downs. This book starts at page 1

    8. I rather enjoyed this novel in spite of its silliness. I especially enjoyed the information on how the Vatican goes about investigating cases of stigmata and visitations from Mary.

    9. I tried 3 times to get into this book, and I just couldn't. I enjoyed her book "Dante's Equation" but this one had too many threads that just didn't connect quickly enough.

    10. Add this to your wish list if you enjoy "end of the world" books. All the signs are there. Is it time for the world to end or is it just mass hysteria? A perfect beach read.

    11. It’s the apocalypse! or an elaborate diabolical conspiracy? Either way it’s a dark commentary on modern times and revisionist history.

    12. El padre Deauchez busca desenmascarar "el fin del mundo" para lo cual deberá sufrir la pérdida de otros y cambiar sus planes.

    13. Very interesting. It wasn't your average apocalyptic novel. I found much of what I used to believe about the world.

    14. Horrifying, suspenseful, and emotional. I was riveted by Jane Jensen's spectacular story of the end of the world.

    15. WOW! This one had me practically running out and stocking up on food and provisions, just in case. Then the plot thickened and it was good! This one will make you think, for sure!
