    1. 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 too read. Secondly, as to the complaints that the books are sexist, that's just si [...]

    2. Okay, so another reason to dislike these books is the good math. Ready? Alright. One of the main characters is pregnant, right? And has been for lets give them the benefit of the doubt three months at the beginning of the book. Okay. Now: There is a five-month plague of demon locusts (just take it at face value) and anyone stung by them will be writhing in pain for a) the rest of the five months that the plague exists, and b) for five whole months after that. When does the main character give bi [...]

    3. This is the Left Behind book that made me the maddest. However it did not dissuade me from continuing the series. You'd think with a book called Apollyon: The Destroyer Is Unleashed there would at the very least be a character names Apollyon in the book. Sadly, no. There is not even a "destoyer." The name Apollyon is mentioned twice but no demon lord arises as I mistakenly believed. There are however these ridiculous demon hybrid locusts. They're 3 to 4 inches long with the 12 part segmented bod [...]

    4. The beginning started off slow but quickly built up towards the middle and held strong all the way to the end. A very satisfying fifth installment to the Left Behind Series. ProsIntenseSuspenseClift hangersPlot twistsCharacter developmentPlot developmentConsNothing

    5. Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins in their book “Apollyon” Book Five in the Left Behind series published by Tyndale House Publishers takes us to the events of Chapter 9, verses 1-12 in Revelation, the last book of The Bible.In the Bible book of Revelation an Angel is dispatched to the bottomless pit with a key. Once the pit is opened out pour locusts upon the Earth unlike any ever seen before. And their sole purpose is to torment for five months "only those men which have not the seal of God i [...]

    6. In this, the fifth book of the "Left Behind" series, the writing has definitely improved, for the most part. Another big improvement is a noticeable lessening of illogical actions and events that were so annoying in earlier volumes. That is not to say that is is completely lacking, though. In this book, we are reminded of the revelation in the "Soul Harvest" that Carpathia had Bruce Barnes poisoned. The question is, "Why?". At the time, Bruce (and the "Tribulation Force" as a whole) was no great [...]

    7. Book #5 of this series has Raymond sneaking out of Israel to save his life and Buck, Chloe, and Tsion going to Israel to hold a huge conference for the witnesses. I never figured out why and that theme held true through most of this book. So much of what happened in this book left me thinking why would they do that or how could they do that? The main characters are constantly putting themselves in situations that noone should survive, yet they do things that if the world conditions really were a [...]

    8. This one drove me nuts because there was still a lot of recapping and with the new seal of God on all the Christian's foreheads, there's less worry about who to trustbut don't worryere are still some impostors around! Hattie: I still cannot stand this woman, but as a believer, I get how passionate they are about trying to win her to Christbut some are so hard hearted, there is nothing you could say. They have to either choose to believe or not. My gut would be telling me to cut her loose and pra [...]

    9. pretty boring book. I forgot I was even reading the book. I have read a few of the DARK-HUNTER series and am reading STONE OF TEARS right now. I will go back and finish the book one day because I can't advance a story without first reading what comes before. all series must be read in order is how I read and I do want to know what happens in the rest of the series. maybe I will enjoy the book more in a year or so but I doubt it. as a whole so far the series is pretty good; I just haven't got int [...]

    10. Here in Volume 5 of the Left Behind series, authors Jenkins & Lahaye prove that even a book can have bad CGI. See, if this was a big blockbuster movie you'd be thrilled by the possibility of seeing some really cool monsters. The title says Appollyon and the tagline says: The Destroyer is Unleashed. Sounds truly epic, right?Yeah Right up until the part with the little demon locusts with little angry faces. Bad CGI strikes again! So you leave the theater ruing the wasted expense of popcorn, so [...]

    11. POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD! !Don't be deceived by the title of this book. The monster you may remember from Pilgrims Progress doesn't appear - he's only mentioned by the strangest locust demons you'll ever read about - UNTILL you realise that's exactly how the Bible describes them! (Rev 9:7-11) As I've said in previous Left Behind reviews, these books are great for bringing Revelation to life & making you turn again to the Word, the Truth, to see if LaHaye's depiction matches up.Also brought t [...]

    12. Apollyon (Left Behind #5) / written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins -- Wheaton, IL : Tyndale House Publishers, c1998. (403 pages) -- RANGE 9 -- ADULT BOOKS FOR YOUNG ADULTSSUMMARY: The Tribulation calendar moves closer to the halfway point and the fourth Trumpet Judgment strikes the solar system and cripples the earth. and then the fifth Trumpet Judgment brings the plague of scorpionlike locusts led by Apollyon, chief demon of the abyss. The judgements are getting worse and worse and the Trib [...]

    13. I enjoyed this book and it was very exiting. However, it did disappoint me in select areas. *SPOILERS AHEAD*. Okay so Hattie loses her baby, we all knew it was going to happen. This was a very sad event and I feel like it happened and then everyone except Hattie moved on. Chloe and Buck got home and they didn't even acknowledge this significant event. Poor Hattie, she got hardly any sympathy. Also, why is Ken dead? He was such a likable character and he will be missed. I know these things are su [...]

    14. Starting this review is well, easy to say the least. I started reading the first book in this wonderful series just as soon as I heard about them. Being from a christian home life growing up and as well as my husband and family this was a no brainier. I am going to do one review including the whole series. From the first page of the first book to the last page in the last book, I was not able to put these books down. I grew hunger so to speak for each page. I have always had a great belief in th [...]

    15. The fifth chapter of the Left Behind series can be divided in to two halves in regards to the plot. The first, which centres around a conference and Nicolae's approach to it is lacking any real action until it wraps up, and although there are some character developing motions, it is largely redundant. The second half drives the story forwards in line with the expectations laid out in Christian literature. The writers ensure nothing can be predicted other than the general predictions and their ar [...]

    16. I am absolutely riveted by these books and when I am reading one I cannot put it down. I tear through it, page into page, and am always disappointed when I reach the end. The character development continues and the authors do not make the mistake of painting them in black and white (except antichrist, of course,) but you see the humanity - theirs, and ours. Our pettinessess and our greatnesses, our selfishness and our self sacrifice. The next book in the series is on my shelf and it is next on m [...]

    17. This was my favorite book of the series so far. There was a definite bone chilling factor that is encountered in this book that was never present in the previous ones. The thought of Apollyon, a a torturous creature that makes you wish you were dead while never actually killing you? And all because you are not a believer? I have to say Tim Lahaye has taught me so much, and all through the voices of fictional characters. I can't wait to read the next one!

    18. The believers from the unbelievers have been marked with the cross on the forehead. locust come and attack anyone not protected by the Lord. they must suffer this judgment for 5 to 10 months giving the Tribulation Force time to plan and prepare for the next seal and judgment. You have to read this series. I'm in love with the characters and I just can't seem to put these down once I start them. I'm raving about this series

    19. This novel, fifth in the Left Behind series, is a very realistic take at the Tribulation period, particularly at the time the first Trumpet judgment has happened -- the locusts and Apollyon. The characters are real people to me, making me care for them. Thank you Lord for this novel.

    20. I am taking these for what they area story. Several points I thought to myself.h oh my, yeah right, and so on, but it is simply a story I keep going to say I have read the series and it isn't bad, something keeps pulling me in even after the ugh.

    21. Very good bookThese books go hand and hand and i love reading each book to discover everything they have to offer. I look forward to completing the series.

    22. Pretty good, odd ending. The locusts were, um, interesting. At least I know what the title means now.Overall I liked it, but it's not as exciting as some of the others.
