Wow, after reading the last of this trilogy, I feel as if I’ve been on a massive rollercoaster ride! First of all, let me tell you that “No Religion” is a fast-paced work. It moves constantly and you are hard pressed to keep up with the action.
The author moves to weave together all the pieces of the mosaic he has created: the story of the Jesus two thousand years ago, the reorganization of the Catholic church, the political machine in the USA, the current nuclear threat, and the final confrontation with the one called Carl Eagle.
He ties it all into one harmonious, beautifully crafted denouement that will especially appeal to those of us watching the current American political landscape with sorry hearts. When I read names like Senators Paul Randall, Ted Cruces, Richard Santini, Mike Duncan, I had to smile.
I do believe author Lex Allen wrote a brilliant and telling series. Those of you who find reason to hate it, remember: it’s only fiction! Those of us who love it, remember, fiction is often based on fact!
