The Left Behind series for adults has been said to be okay, and having read it, I'd agree. But the kid's version is wonderfully written, and I thoroughly recommend it to all readers who are looking for something good. The downpart, however, is that it is a very Christian book, and you must understand that before you read it. It is about the Rapture, when all the good people go to heaven and the bad people are left behind (thus the title). So read it, but know that it is Christian and frequently talks about the Bible and the Antichrist, who is named Nicolate Carpathia.
