Doomsday Eve

Gelesen von Mark Nelson

(4,268 Sterne; 228 Bewertungen)

In the midst of the war—that terrible conflict that threatened humanity's total destruction—the "new people" suddenly appeared. Quietly performing incredible deeds, vanishing at will, they were an enigma to both sides. Kurt Zen was an American intelligence officer among the many sent to root them out. He found them. Taken captive in their hidden lair, he waited as the enemy prepared to launch the super missile, the bomb to end all bombs—and all life. If only he could find the source of the new people's power, Kurt alone might be able to prevent obliteration of the Earth....

Entertaining, but...

(4 Sterne)

Mark Nelson performs admirably. The story is entertaining, esp. if you enjoy 1950s sci fi sensibilities. But... I am a Bible-believing follower of Jesus Christ, so I found this story missed the mark on its central premise. The author posits the existence of a "race mind" that evolves from the collective consciousness of enlightened individuals over a galactic timeframe. The idea of joining with the race mind upon death is called "going to Heaven." When asked how to do this, the race mind answers that it is by "faith"--the text actually uses that word. As a Christian, I find these ideas a shallow parody of Scriptural truths. What the book presents as a bland merging together in "heaven" is weak in comparison to the soul-filling, joyful unification that Christians are promised (described in Revelation as a wedding feast). The race mind acts like a personal intelligence, but it is so devoid of feeling as to be cold and uncaring; by contrast, the God of the Bible is lavishly loving and inviting.

Good concept

Enjoyed this story. Like this authors writing style. It does portray the attitudes of men of the 50's which the politically correct of today who are obsessed with being offended will certainly be offended. However, if you understand the era and WWII, you'll enjoy this too. As always, Mark does a great job of reading and book choice. Thank you

Bravo from Borneo

(3,5 Sterne)

Really enjoyed this sci-fi tale so sublimely read by the great Mark Nelson. The plot explores how war is hell and how a benevolent race want to ultimately bring an end to it forever.

Well read, average story

(2,5 Sterne)

Well read as always by this narrator, but the story is average at best. Other reviews are gushing five stars, as always! Believe what you will.

another excellent reading

(4 Sterne)

This story was way too much like 2020 Era. Without the odious sjw's.

Poorly written

(1 Sterne)

absolutely horrible! I generally never leave bad reviews. if it's a bad egg, I'd rather not even bother. But this was a complete waste of life! Even taking into account the old style of writing, it felt like a 9 year old boy wrote it. Great narration by the way. Listened to many of his reads. I would rate no stars, however, then people would assume I forgot to rate it.

Not bad.

(5 Sterne)

I would say that while the science-fiction elements of the story are dated, it does an excellent job of serving as a cautionary tale to those who think neutrality is an option when faced with evil. Let's go, Brandon

fair story, great reading

(3,5 Sterne)

I found the protagonist a bit of an ass at times, probably “hero alpha male” of years gone by. There are interesting ideas here, well paced and generally interesting
