    "This fiction book about spirituality, Siddhartha, was very difficult to understand due to the poor translation. I looked forward to reading it but really did not enjoy it due to the poor translation. I guess it would have been better if someone read it to me! "

    "Everyone has their own tastes for novels and literature. I prefer books who's writer I have learned about or experienced from others. When it comes to it, this is a difficult question to relate to our readers looking for the best books out there unless the review and solution is coming from a credible source. 2 stars."

    "I need to get some fiction books about spirituality for an upcoming business trip, but I'm not sure what is out there. The Shack looks like a viable option. It is well rated by thousands of users, and definitely has the spiritual aspect at the center of the story. I will be getting this book."

    "I found this book to be a bit superficial in that it didn't dig deep enough into Buddhism to help me understand it. I'm not a fundamentalist christian either so I didn't always relate to the author's views. This one isn't exactly my cup of tea."

    "I got chance to read the book loved this series. It is making me realise too just how easily we could be living in end times, it encourages me to watch and wait prayerfully. I know some people have made comments about other series being more biblically correct, but I haven't read those series and I find it quite scriptural. Am already reading the next book and am very pleased that there are a few more good reads awaiting me when I finish the current one. I am also enjoying being walked through Revelations - the mysterious and yet quite readable and in places flat out bizzare book of the bible, and being reminded of what is to come. Hope there is such thing as the Rapture... debate still rages in Christian circles and I don't have to be one of the ones living through it. "

    "This is not my normal reading fare but I found the book to be a quick, enjoyable read due to the fast paced dialogue, good characterization and excellent writing by the author. Some of the subjects written about, and the language used, make this book a definite book for mature adults; and not for children. I found myself feeling a tad uncomfortable in in places due to the very adult and sexually oriented nature of this book."

    "In my opinion, all religion and spirituality is fiction, so Nicolae (Left Behind) fit right into this category. The written was poorly done, and the characters are one-dimensional and unbelievable. Nicolae is supposed to be the Antichrist, yet his dialogue is like that of an old Sunday school teacher."

    "This book definitely puts into question about spirituality, especially in a society and family context. This fiction seemed very much like a "based on a true story", so I found myself getting heavily invested with the main character. This is a good book, but can be a little depressing at times. You need to have a strong will to get through it."

    "I must admit the Left Behind books aren't really my style; i'll read them if i'm bored and the housemate's left them lying around but won't pick them up for myself. Assassins isn't an exception. It carries on the story of the Tribulation well enough, and there's some important plot points which are bound to be critical later in the series, but unless you're already a Left Behind fan it's it's probably not worth reading."
