It's rare that I win a book from The Reading Room, but when I don't win an actual book, I'm gifted with ebooks and pdf's. That's cool, I can dig it. Last week, I won two and this is one of them. This Is Not THE END by Jesse Jordan.
So this novel is about James Salley, the antichrist. Yes, the emissary for Satan, I kid you not. He's a sixteen year old kid who wants to just die, but he's set for bigger and better things! He just can't see it...
He's bullied and despised by other kids (they don't realize it's not their faults. It's like his pheromones just bring out the ugly, and he's always being watched by folks that actually turn out to be Roman Catholic Antichrist killers, determined to stop him. Then there's the librarian and others who know and are simply waiting on him to do his thang! lol
What I liked about this story is that, James had a choice in everything he did. He tries to research through the bible on Revelation (which can be difficult for the best of Christians) and listens to Ezra. And he's left confused! I loved it! He's a kid; how else was he supposed to be?
I enjoyed this story, but I have to say, the footnotes... No dude! Way too much information, even when it was helpful. I understand why Jordan wanted to share particular locations and stuff, but as an author and reader, somethings need to be left for the reader to research. When I don't know a word, I find my dictionary. If I can't envision a location, I pull it up on a map- don't boggle me down with footnotes! Maybe that was a one time thing for this story, I don't know. I hope it's not his style in all books though, because that could get old really fast!
So yeah, check out This Is Not THE END. You may enjoy it. On to the next ebook win!📚
