[Conlan Brown] È The Firstborn [banks PDF] Read Online  Eh, it was an okay read I might be picking up the second book.
I read this book and its sequel The Overseer back in high school, and they continue to be the best that contemporary Christian novelists have to offer Set in modern day, we have three secret factions, the Prima, Ora, and Domani, all part of a collective group of Christians called The Firstborn, blessed with the ability of hindsight, insight, and foresight, depending on their faction For instance, the Prima can only see visions of the past They are seen as useless and less impactful by the other factions The Ora can see visions of things in the now, and they are seen as reckless and impulsive by the other factions Lastly, the Domani see visions of the future, who pride themselves with being the most important faction of The Firstborn, as they can see things yet to unfold Ever since Ch If a book can t grab me within the first 35 pages, then I throw in the towel There was a LOT of back and forth between storylines and a LOT of characters in the first chapter It was choppy and confusing and I felt like there was some forced religion coming my way, so I abandoned ship.
I m really disappointed that I didn t like this book all that much The writing was great, the story fascinating Why, oh why, Mr Brown, did you flip flop between the different characters every other paragraph or so I m exaggerating a little, but it did feel that way reading the first couple of chapters, which is all I managed to do I m okay with learning about the perspectives of different characters, but not at the expense of flip flopping through too many narratives in a single chapter If you had paced out the chapters to one character at a time, it would have been MUCH enjoyable and it would not have ended up on my Did Not Finish book list.
I m really upset I didn t like this book, it had such promise Eh, it was an okay read I might be picking up the second book.
