Reviews Soul Harvest (Left Behind, #4)

  • Amanda
    As one who always reads other reviews before reading and reviewing a book, I feel like I should respond to what some of the other reviewers have to say. First of all, some complain that the writing style is too sophomoric. Well, every writer has his voice, and how interesting would the world be if everyone wrote or spoke exactly the same way? Yes, the writing style is simple, but that just makes the book(s) easier to read. Secondly, as to the com...

    Book 3 ends with a bang…or better yet, an earthquake. Not just any earthquake, the mother of all Earthquakes: the Wrath of the Lamb. This is a world-wide earthquake that wipes out nearly a quarter of the world’s already depleted population. With our Tribulation Saints scattered world-wide, the need to know where everyone is will have you picking up book 4 without a moment’s hesitation. Rayford’s new wife, Amanda, is MIA. The last anyone ...

  • Esau Slodge
    Read this in the library so I wouldn't give the authors royalties. What a fraudulent piece of shit this series is.
  • Shannon
    Good things about this book:1. Ken Ritz2. Dr. Charles (mostly)3. Earthquakes and other cool judgementy actiony type thingsBad things about this book:1. The word "rascal" again. Why, God, why?2. Rayford still can't comprehend heathens actually caring about each other. Seriously dude, what kind of a guy where you before you converted? The fact that you were a douchey heathen doesn't make every other heathen a douche. Rayford sometimes reminds me of...

    Why I hate these books, in two sentences: "Sandy Moore had been at the table with her newspaper and coffee when a huge oak tree crashed through the roof with such force that it flattened her and the heavy wood table... Had not the rest of her body been compressed to inches, she might have appeared to be dozing."Compressed to inches? ah... ah... AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHATerrible, terrible writing. Terrible.
  • Oceana
    My favourite one so far! So much action for the Tribulation Force. Some sad goodbyes too but so compelling! I'm hooked. I definitely want to see how the TF's get to the end!

    Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins in their book “Soul Harvest” Book Four in the Left Behind series published by Tyndale House Publishers shows us The World Takes Sides."Soul Harvest," picks up after the wrath of the Lamb at the end of book three - a devastating earthquake that killed 25 percent of the earth's population. The Tribulation Force are dealing with the utter devastation the earthquake caused. Much of the book deals with, as the title...

    The world has been torn apart by an earthquake its scale previously unprecedented. People everywhere are left grieving and picking up the pieces especially Rayford who is torn between how to trust a loved one's motives just months before. Buck Williams is desperately searching for Chloe who was left in a building and might be underneath the rubble. What must the Tribulation Force do since this has been their biggest challenge yet and could the en...
  • Jennifer Defoy
    I've read this book before but I wanted to get back into the series and I couldn't remember the whole story so I re-read it.I have to say that I was very entertained by this book. I think that this series is so well written that if you don't believe in the Rapture that you would enjoy the story line. The characters in this story are so well developed that you can't help but to form a bond with them. The book jumps around a bit, but it is not dist...
  • David
    After getting wrapped up in the characters and feeling the need to find out what happens to them was the only reason I continued to read all the books in the series. The authors definately knew how to draw someone in and keep it just entertaining enough for them not to put it down and never think of it again - barely. I read the series for it's fiction appeal, not the biblical meanings, so was a bit disappointed in the writings. If the authors ha...
  • Grampy
    Due to my personal belief in the Bible, I have found this entire series to be extremely entertaining and sometimes a little scary. I strongly recommend reading the series in chronological order, or there will be a lot of details that won't make sense. I realize atheists, agnostics, other religions, and even some Christian sects will scoff at the whole concept of the series, and that is their prerogative. I still think they might find the books en...
  • Alexander
    This was the fourth book in the Left Behind series and it was really intense. The book built off of where the last one left off. The novel was so intense and filled with so many plot twists that it will keep you reading till the very end.

    You know a book series is good when you read one of the books in two days. Man! It just keeps getting better and better. So excited to see what happens next.

  • Amy T.
    This series is stellar. Its turning into one of my favorites. I had to sit in my car to finish sequences sometimes because it was so riveting. You feel like you know the characters and my heart grew so attached to them!! Having read the previous three books in the sequence, I would have to say this book was not only the best story so far but it was the most well written of the books. There are two supporting characters that make decisions to beco...
  • Nicole
    I read what I did of this series because it was one of the few books my then-husband would read, and I wanted to be able to discuss books with him. I won't be reading more of these books, or re-reading any of the ones I already read, and reading them didn't help give me and my ex-husband anything interesting to talk about anyway since he didn't want to hear the ways in which my opinion on the series varied from his.
  • Neil
    This was a crazy-fast read for me, to be honest. It moved at a quick pace. It takes place directly after the massive global quake at the end of the third book. The entire book focuses mostly on the Tribulation Force trying to find love ones in the resulting destruction. It does move at a fast pace; the authors are doing a better job of mixing "action" and "non-action" moments in the book. It also introduces new minor characters and builds upon ot...
  • Renee
    The events in Soul Harvest , book four in the Left Behind Series, are a continuation of the action begun at the end of Nicolae. The world is reeling after a devastating natural disaster. Buck and Rayford are searching for their wives, making new friends along the way, and leading folks to the Savior as the opportunities arise. Important lives are lost. But eventually those of the Tribulation Force who are left gather for encouragement and to mak...
  • Naomi Bowen
    Soul Harvest is the fourth book in the Left Behind series and it has to be one of my favourite so far. Picking up where the last book left off,we find two of the main characters desperately searching for loved ones in the aftermath of a devastating world wide earthquake. You can feel the stakes have been raised. No one is necessarily safe. You have daring rescues, more people coming to Christ, astonishing plot twists and breathtaking images lifte...
  • Jessie
    This novel, like the two before it, dragged in some places. At the end, it sped up very quickly. It was like the authors were rushing to get to the end. It was mostly about Buck and Rayford trying to find their loved ones. Rayford discovered some disconcerting things about Amanda that he refuses to believe until he finds proof one way or the other. After a massive earthquake tore apart the land and killed many people, Chloe is left with broken bo...
  • Melissa
    This book was ok, not great but not bad just very in between. There was what should have been more action/suspenseful moments but the writing just didn't leave me feeling like I was reading something dramatic so it was a bit of a let down. You did see more of some of the interesting characters, like Ritz, from the other books which I enjoyed. The writing and some of the way things happen in this book seem off to me. There was a world wide earthqu...
  • Mike (the Paladin)
    In this installment of the series a mark appears on the foreheads of believers which only other believers can see. Again I don't know if this is actually the way God will work out this prophecy (I'm a Christian and have no problem with accepting the truth of the book of Revelation). The books attempt to give a literal interpritation of the Book. It's (their) only real failure as far as I'm concerned is that the writing itself isn't all that great...
  • Kevin
    I personally liked this book. I loved the drama and suspense in this one. Is Amanda really a plant by Nicolae? I'd like to think not. Buck and Rayford are still my two favorite characters, albeit they are the 2 main characters. I also liked the addition of Mac into the cast, especially because Rayford really needs a friend. I especially loved the scene between Rayford and Mac when Ray discovers Amanda's body. It was realistic, moving, and touchin...
  • Tyler Sellers
    This book has been a great read. I love that for over half the book both Rayford and Buck are looking for there loved ones. The devastation of the earth quake and the prophecies that unfold in front of the readers eyes brings an excitement and suspense to the story and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. I love this book and how the accuracy of the biblical prophecies gives you a look on how the end times might actually happ...
  • Reyna
    Oh man-it left me on a cliffhanger. Thank God I already have the next book on my shelf. I wouldn't want to wait to go buy it or check it out! It was the best of all the past ones. Rayford is left wondering the truth about Amanda, and more seals and judgements are coming true. Hattie has secrets that she told the rest of the Tribulation Force but Rayford has not heard. He thinks it's about Amanda, and he doesn't want to believe that she might not ...
  • Sandy (WI girl at heart)
    Finished this book but forgot to do a review on it. I loved the book enough to give it 4.5 stars. It was a great stepping stone in this very interesting series.This book had it "oh yeah" moments but could have gone a bit further in explaining a few details which would have filled out the main theme. It is the good VS evil being stomped into your brain, very effective indeed. Would I read it again: yes. Would I recommend it to others: yes.
  • Stephanie F.
    This is the fourth installment in the "Left Behind" Christian book series. I find these books to be quick & enjoyable reads. These novels are something that I find a person reads entirely for plot or because it falls in line with their belief system. The writing style is not outstanding or very advanced. However, I do enjoy reading these novels. The action is exciting and I grow attached to the characters and want to find out what will happen nex...

    Ridiculous Fun.

  • Shelley Alongi
    OK now I am starting to recognize these guys formula. More car chases kind of like a movie. The central question does not get answered reason is satisfactory manner in this book so I guess that means we have to find out in the next book or the next day or the next or the next. I still contend that the writing is very good although I think it’s time to take a two day break and get some things done but I have finished four of these books and I th...
