“The Last Prophet,” a compelling story, focuses on the end of the thousand years, after the apocalypse, as J.E. Spelman sees the events unfolding. This book hits the mark, and then some, as this well-written story will transform you into the futuristic setting.
- A wonderful captivating story
- Although a fairly simple straight-forward plot line, very interesting
- Some interesting Sci-Fi elements
- Travel between Mars and Earth in a manner of hours
- Food dispensers (like replicators in Star Trek)
- Dome living on Mars
- Vivid descriptions common throughout the book
- Really make be feel like I am in the scenes.
- “At lunch, the group of friends rushed to their usual table with one accord, desperate to talk through recent stories. As they slammed their trays down and lurched into seats, everyone started talking at once.” (110)
- Great characters which help bring the story to life
- I could sense Erik’s conflicting mindset, as I was allowed to get inside the minds of the characters, especially Erik.
- “Erik was ready to scream with frustration. “Get on with the story, woman!” he thought silently. He exchanged anguished glaces with Tonio, who struck his forehead with his pal in a gesture of aggravation.” (274)
*My opinion: what I didn’t care for or do not prefer. This will not lower a rating unless it overly distracts from the story.
Who really knows if there will even be a thousand year reign (It’s debatable if the 1,000 year reign will happen and whether it’s only symbolism. Should we take it literal?), but if there is, I would hope the events would unfold like this story.
