The Final Hour

on February 3, 2012

The Final Hour is a the fourth book in the series where Charlie West is the main character and the hero.  It is a fiction book written by Andrew Klavan.  I did not read the other 3 books prior, but I’m guessing that you don’t really need to as I get the point.  In this book, it is Charlie’s goal to save New York City from terrorists destroying it.  This book is geared more towards kids than adults. 

It is filled with a lot of action, and frankly, I’m not much of an action person.  I found parts of it a bit scary and I’m not all that big into government stuff.  So, those were minuses for me, but for those that like scary action, have at it.  My brother convinced me to get this book.  And, it came in eBook format.  This is my first eBook and I don’t have one of those Kindles or handheld book devices, so it was sort of a pain to read it on my computer, which I’m not at a lot.  It would’ve been nice to have been able to get a hard copy of this and carry the book with me.  That’s why it took me so long to read.

Charlie West has a lot of flashbacks, and I don’t really like that as it was hard for me to keep track of in my head.  Maybe as I read more books like this, I’ll get used to it.  That’s another new thing for me.  Not sure if this was meant to be a Christian book or not, but there wasn’t a lot of that in this book.  It seemed like Charlie relied more on his karate stuff than on God.  I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to be.

There are questions that came to my mind:  Does faith really matter and does it really help you out in the end, when the going gets really tough and things look really grim?  How do I feel about people who want to harm my country?  This gives me a better direction as to how to pray.  So, the book wasn’t a total waste.

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
