The Rapture


by Liz Jensen.

Quickie Recap: Bethany has already driven one psychologist crazy: she's a young girl in a high security facility because she stabbed her mother to death with a screw driver. And now she's predicting deadly storms culminating in Armageddon...or is she causing them? Her new therapist, fresh from her own wounds, has to sort out the difference while keeping her sanity.

Quickie Review: Oh man. This was intense. It takes extremes of religion and environmentalism and makes the end of the world sound all too plausible. It's light on psychological fare, surprisingly, and heavier on psychic abilities, so yes, suspension of disbelief is necessary. But fun.

Quickie Recommendation: Pretty okay.

That's one fabulous cover! I can suspend belief--I do it all the time at the movies.

suspension of disbelief is a breeze. It's how I got through life so far.

I've missed your book blogging. Here is a book that I'm reading right now that I'm liking very much: The Good Mayor, by Andrew Nicoll.
