It all was rather silly.

Left Behind Not Just Kooky. It's Badly Written Too.

I knew that the theology would be kooky, but I didn’t expect that the characters would be so flat, and the writing would be so awkward. The weirdness of things like fetuses rapturing out of their mothers’ wombs aside, Left Behind is painful to read. [...]
