“i say that i liked this book but it still sort of confused me. you never really get a proper answer to what the people have become or why there are different types of people things apart from the life and peace machines but i really liked how you never really knew where the story was going.
Also another question that never was answered was how come the earth 'healed' so quickly. i mean 2 hours that a little on the extreme side don't you think?
Yeah i liked the twists and that the writer wasn't afraid to go philosophical on us and kill people. great story. even if i have more questions than answers”
“Excellent thriller with a decent ending. It's certainly worth the buck I paid for it.”Digit wrote this review Wednesday, December 28, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's just something about the whole book that just didn't sit right with me.
It has all the ingredients for a great post-apocalyptic story, nuclear war, survivors, a bit of religion/supernatural...it should have been great.
Maybe it was the religious/supernatural bit, I didn't quite 'get it'.”
“Well, second book and still waiting see why Luce is in hiding. Something is preventing her from getting killed this time but we still don't know what. She has been sent to a schhol in California full of Nehpilium. She still loves Daniel but Miles is also playing a part. again not much happened. although Cam (satan's man) is on their side and seems to like Luce's friend Callie.”Leeann Z wrote this review Thursday, June 16, 2011.

“Despite a few typos (or perhaps formatting issues), I thought Torment was a great read! The premise is believable: the end of the world by nuclear war and the aftermath. A small cast of characters in the White House cheat death by way of the government's Earth Escape Pods which launch them into outer space. They return several hours later to find hordes of zombie-like people roaming cities and suburbs alike destroying anything that happens to get their attention. The action is literally non-stop as the survivors race to avoid certain death, but it soon becomes clear that death may be their only escape.
Besides the creature theme, this book poses challenging questions about heaven, hell, and being truly prepared for death. However, this is not a religious book, thankfully, and should appeal to fans of horror, monsters, zombies and high action.
“Wow, what a surprise. I have to say I picked up the book because it was a great buy at 99 cents, and the story line sounded pretty good. i could not put it down, Bishop has a way of crawling into your head and putting your nightmares right down on the pages in black and white. ”Ann237 wrote this review Friday, March 18, 2011.

“This book really starts off with a bang and never quits. The action is constant throughout but also has an interesting take on the post-apocolyptic story. I read this in only a few sittings because I really wanted to know what was going to happen next. This was dark and sometimes brutal but written very well. I would recommend.”Zach wrote this review Tuesday, November 9, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
