    I read this book because I had heard alot about the author and wanted to see if I liked his style of writing. This book fits on my bingo board as a "fantasy book" This book was okay, I liked how the beginning was very hooking and mysterious and it had a good ending. I disliked the middle of the book because it was boring and the whole book anti-climaxed and went just went further and further down. The book is about a boy named Kit who gets wrecked on an island with his parents. He sees a mysterious man and is told to leave by the angry locals who are isolated from the rest of the "evil" world that are not from the same religion as them. Kit goes for a look around the island in the night time, and when he gets back his parents are gone. He spends the rest of the book looking for his parents with a girl who is an outlaw and conflicting with the natives of the island. The islanders speak of an apocalypse that will condemn the earth to hell, and when Kit is eventually rescued he finds out that the apocalypse is taking place. The book ends with him finding out that he was in the past, he sacrifices an item the outlaw gave to him, his last memory of her and the island and it is suggested that the apocalpyse may not happen.I would recommend this book for people who like mysterious and original fantasy novels.

    OMG.... This book is a very very good suspense thriller book. i just went to the library and the title of this book sounded good so i started reading and couldn't stop until i'd read every single word in this book.Apocalypse is about a family who are on holiday on a boat in the middle of the sea. A big storm comes and the main character (Kit) makes a mistake with the boat and the family finds themselves washed up on a weird shore on a remote land, at least that's what they think. (view spoiler)[... (hide spoiler)] Soon Kit's life is in danger because of the inhabitants of the island and a new arrival of evil beast who's presence on the island horrifies everyone including the islanders. He also finds a girl who is running away from the island as well but is not able to. Somehow she is the only one on the island who can speak english.I like everything except the middle part of the book because the author described it well but nothing happened. I would recommend this book to people who like books that have suspense and thrilling scenes. This book is a little confusing so 12 year olds and above should read it.

    La verdad no sé que esperaba del libro pero definitivamente no es remotamente parecido a lo que imaginé que sería.Esperaba un libro de aventuras y misterios, y aunque en cierto modo lo sea, es mucho más que sólo eso. Había visto muchas reseñas de los lectores, alegando lo terrorífico que era o que el final resultaba confuso. Siendo honesta, no me ha dado la sensación de tener miedo durante todo el libro; de incertidumbre sí, pero nunca miedo. Y en cuanto al final, la verdad ahora mismo no puedo recordar algo que me haya quedado más claro y que haya tenido más sentido que éste. Estoy totalmente abrumada y se que no seré capaz de pensar en algo más que este libro durante los próximos días. Al principio me molestaba un poco lo lento que avanzaba, ya que la acción verdadera comenzó a partir de la página 150 (más o menos), hasta aquél punto todo era una bruma de incertidumbre. Sin embargo, ahora que me he leído hasta la última palabra, me he dado cuenta de que todo fue escrito deliberadamente de este modo, y que a pesar de que en ese momento no lo disfrutara excesivamente, no cambiaría nada respecto a esta historia.

    I'm hard pressed to think of many other novels that I've read in my life which I enjoyed more than this one. I read a total of 50 novels in 2011 giving a score out of 100 for each one according to how much I enjoyed it. The highest score went to a novel called "The Map of Time" by Felix J.Palma to which I gave a score of 89. But I would give Apocalypse a score of 95. I would also say that it is better than the other books that Tim Bowler has written and which I've read -- even Starseeker and River Boy which were also both excellent.The novel is aimed at the teenage market but adults will certainly not find it too simplistic! It is an extremely profound novel.

    This book was not great but it wasn't bad. I found it to be quite vague and found myself having to re-read some paragraphs because I would get distracted. It was also quite hard for me to imagine the characters because there was not a lot of description of them, which is not necessarily a fault of the book since it allows the reader to use their imagination but it can help at times. There were also times where the book seemed to move from one topic to another which confused me. The plot, however, was quite original and I did feel the need to finish reading the book.

    Hummmm. This book had many moments in it that really grabbed me, and I found myself completely absorbed. Unfortunately, for me, they were just that...moments. While I was reading, and waiting for those times, I was bored or confused. Kind of like fishing for me...throw out the line, start getting bored waiting...then confusion on why your wasting your time waiting and about ready to pack it in when, BAM ya get a bite.

    Un buen libro, lento al principio y fue agarrando su trama un poco pasada la mitad. Resulto ser un poco Aura de Carlos Fuentes en los dos últimos capítulos. Me gusto el final al recordar a Ula y sus palabras de Ama todo lo que puedas. No me resolvió la duda del hombre desnudo y cada vez que aparecía me daba un poco de miedo. Si lo recomiendo.

    Este libro fue uno de las muchas lecturas que tomo así por que sí. En particular no esperaba nada de el, lo cierto es que me gustó la forma en que el autor me atrapaba con los momentos de adrenalina. Algunas otras partes no fueron de mi agrado y no por que fueron malas sino porque le faltó ponerle más énfasis a esas partes que estaba de relleno.

    Tim Bowler always manages to create a story that you have no idea what to think about, that even after you've finished the last page you're like "...what?" yet the words will still carry you on right through to the end. Even if you don't completely understand the mysterious events that happen... use your imagination! Or wikipedia.

    This is one of the best, and mist disturbing books I have ever read. No. One reads it in the library, but i dont want to sort out the book. I dont understand it. I still have angst because of the ending. But. Love it. It is so hauntingly written. (Suggestiv?) love it.

    Although written for teens, this book can also appeal to adults. Rather scary, it should not be read alone at night in the middle of a storm! Very strange book, with an even stranger ending. Time-slip fantasy.

    This is the only Tim a Bowler book that I couldn't finish. All the nautical and boat related descriptions just seemed to drag on for me and seemed unnecessary. If I had finished the book, I may have felt differently about it, but I just couldn't get through it I'm afraid.

    wow! this imaginative, insightful, mysterious, instrinsic novel cannot be praised highly enough. with lovely descriptions, believable characters and impresively complicated twist at the end, this is not for light reading! one of my favourite reads in a while.

    This was a good story line but it took a while to get going. I found that even though I wanted to find out what happened it was a chore to read. It dragged on for a bit too long.
