Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

With the murderous Kimball clan’s evil power plays finally put down, Dr. Jacob Christianson begins to embrace his role as leader of the Mormon polygamist community of Blister Creek, hoping to slowly bring his people into the modern age. But then the world around Blister Creek begins to fall apart: An international crop failure and global starvation. Freezing temperatures and active volcanoes. Fuel and medicine shortages. Widespread lawlessness and looming war. The residents of Blister Creek suddenly find themselves facing the very end-of-the-world scenario they’ve been preparing for. Years of stockpiling guns, ammunition, food, and fuel are paying off: They are ready to wait out whatever God has in store for them.

Unfortunately, their preparations have not gone unnoticed. A newly empowered government agency and a vengeful governor have their sights set on Blister Creek and are plotting to take control of their supplies. Can Jacob defend his community, calm his terrified people, quell an armed rebellion, and keep government forces out of his people’s business? Only God knows.

Set in a dangerously beautiful landscape against a backdrop of apocalyptic worldwide collapse, The Gates of Babylon is the sixth book in Michael Wallace’s acclaimed Righteous series. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition MP3 CD .

The plot line is a bit too dependent upon the reader's prior knowledge of characters and events. Characters development is less stressed and I could not determine what the focal element was. Book was more like extended chapters but did succeed in advancing the original plot and setting the stage for the next installment.

I started reading this series with Book #1, The Righteous, 2 years ago when it first came out. It was one of the "freebies" on Amazon. I remember thinking at the time, man...it is not going to be long before some big publishing company picks up Michael Wallace and we're paying big bucks for his books. While they are still very reasonably priced I can honestly say Michael Wallace and the "Righteous" series rivals any author I have ever read and the latest in the series "The Gates of Babylon" is no exception. I will say that it is not really a stand alone novel though. Readers should really start with #1 and read all the series. I promise by the time you get to #6 you will be so invested in the plot and the characters that you will be longing for #7. In this latest novel the hard work, frugalness and the saving of food, grain, and fuel by generations of the Blister Creek families could be enough to save them from the turmoil and starvation associated with a total government collapse that is on the horizon; a result of a volcanic eruption on the other side of the world that affected the weather and consequently the food crops. The reader is quick to see however, just what really happens when people are faced with losing their homes, families, jobs and ultimately starving to death. Even the worst bandits, robbers and killers have a hard time competing with the government's corruption, greed, ruthlessness and total disregard for the citizens of our nation --- especially the polygamists that had the forethought to save for the things necessary for survival. In this novel we see the women of Blister Creek getting stronger, which I liked. There are factions in the Quorum and could it be that even members of the Blister Creek community could turn on their own people? As in the previous five novels, there is violence, suspense and wonderful insight into polygamy. I highly recommend this entire series to any reader. Mr. Wallace's other novels are all excellent as well. He seems to be an author that does his research on all of his novels.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Michael Wallace has done it again! 18 février 2014

Here is yet another amazing addition to the Righteous Series. The end of the world seems to be coming and not only are Jacob and his family trying to survive, they are also wrestling with matters of faith versus survival. If you have not read any of the books in this series, I would not start with this one. There are many events that are referred to in this book that occurred in previous books. However, all the books are quick reads and you certainly will be glad you jumped into this series. If you are hesitant about reading a series with "crazy polygamists" I assure you that you will find these books fascinating as well as suspenseful and you will quickly grow fond of Eliza, Jacob, Fernie, and many of the other Blister Creek characters. I highly recommend this series and if the last 2 books continue to be as good as the rest have been, this will turn out to be an amazing, 8 book series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Is this the end? Only Michael Wallace knows 18 février 2014

The sixth book in the Christianson family saga. I have read
all of the books and have become very vested in the lives
of Jacob, Eliza, Fernie, and the other characters that joined
the family through the book years.

Poor Eliza always seemed to be in the middle of some sort of
trouble with those nasty Kimballs. At last they are finally out
of the picture so the family should be able to live in peace.
But where is the fun in that?

In this final book, to the members of Blister Creek, it seems as
if the end of the world has started. So we have the story of the
ant and the grasshopper. But this time the grasshopper has
automatic weapons and armed soldiers. Not a good mix for
some of the hot headed elders that reside in the valley.

Definitely a great read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read ...the Whole Series! 19 février 2014
Par Terrie A. Truitt - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book gives the reader a glimpse into to the ‘what if’ the world is coming to an end! Is the Mormon prediction coming true? The group in Blister Creek lead by Joseph with his sister Eliza second in command try to save their build up of fuel and food rations in light of government and army forces trying to take everything away to feed the rest of the country, meanwhile lining their own pockets when and if everything returns to normal. Power, internet are all gone and they are re-learning age old ways of travel, food and clothing without the modern conveniences. This book keeps you reading wondering how they will get themselves out of various predicaments and survive. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series (which I hope is very soon).
