Comments Messiah

  • Charlaralotte

    Good lord! There are 33 pages of books with "The Messiah" in the title.Anyway, seeing as my religious background is spotty at best, and relies heavily on Monty Python and Mel Brooks parodies, I enjoyed this book. Though I'm sure many evangelicals may have problems. Loved the nunnery/orphanage in Jerusalem, with its visiting religious scholars. Loved Andrea's character, and the dissection of her charisma.At first I enjoyed Amelia and her "uncle," but once the plotting got hot and heavy, I became [...]

    Y2K.Individual years don't often get their own abbreviations, especially not ones as stark as that, but the Year 2000 was a major milestone in many respects. It may be hard to believe now, especially for younger readers, but in the late 1990s, the looming rollover from 1999 to 2000 A.D that odometer effect—when all the digits would change—had a lot of people worried. And with good reason, some of 'em; there really were some computer programs which, if they had been left uncorrected, would ha [...]

    I haven't finished it yet, but so far I'm enjoying it immensely. More irreverent than Good Omens, sexier than American Gods, more myth-ladden than Snow Crash and more New Orleans-ian than A Confederacy of Dunces.While based on a whole mesh of myths and folk, from the oldest time to contemporaneity - the cyberspace plays a very important role - it feels fresh and original and bursting with vitality. The atmosphere is luxuriant and the style rich without being cloying.Plans are afoot for an apocal [...]


  • Daryl

    This novel is organized in a traditional way, with two separate storylines in alternating chapters. Unfortunately, like most books in this style, one of the storylines (Felicity’s) is far more interesting than the other one (Andrea’s), so I found myself looking forward to those chapters, and just wanting to get through the others. When the two stories connect, about 2/3 of the way through the book, it becomes more and more odd, using characters from history, as well as religious/mystical/mag [...]

    I can't get over how the jacket picture nowhere near fit the image of Andrei I had in my head based on the essays he reads on NPR.The story will twist your brain as to how you have perceived any versions of the rapture or the coming of a messiah it is hard to swallow and yet very revealing on so many ways about perceptions in our current culture I also get the feeling he tries the Eco route of obscure sources of knowledge, and doesn't quite make it.


  • Frances

    This started out good, but I didn't really like or I think even understand it. I'm not really sure what happened. I love alternate reality in books especially a good armegeddon book. I had high hopes for this, but I don't think it came through. Too bad.


  • Sarah

    Years ago, Andrei was a great commentator on NPR, loved to listen to him. So when I see this book for a dollar - cannot refuse.I should have. Possibly the worst book I've ever tried to read. And I did try, truly read the first half, then skimmed second half. Awful.


  • Polack

    I read this contemporaneously with its publication back in 1999. I recall it as being a very enjoyable read, set in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans. Felicity's uncle, the gourmand, was an unforgettable character.


  • Andrea

    It was hard to get through, but once I finished I could appreciate the story.


  • Jerry

    His essays trump his novels, but this one is quite engaging. Great ideas. Still, I kept thinking that I liked the movie Dogma better.


  • Lori S

    This is the greatest book of all time!!!
