2012: Seeking Closure by Gregory Bernard Banks, ISBN: 10-0982436103, WheelMan Press, review by ellen george


Gregory Bernard Banks wrote a powerful novel based on Tom Townsend's short story.

You will run the gamut of emotions reading this book - horror, hate, panic, love, forgiveness, and so much more.

Let me ask you to think - What would you do if you were told that the world would end in 3 hours and you had no control over it? How would you react?

Hold those you love closely?
Find revenge on those who wronged you?
Pray to God to help?
Seek a false God to exempt them from this event?

Mr. Banks follows a number of people dealing with the news that you only have 3 hours to live. It also gives pause - The President and those in power (all others in power around the world) have known for a long time that a series of comets will come near and probably hit the earth and do catastrophic damage - they build huge bunkers way underground and take the 'elite' who when the comets have done their thing, can rebuild civilization!!!

But the John Q. Publics don't know that the leaders are broadcasting from safety...

As I was reading 2012: Seeking Closure - I remember my brother either read or watched the film On the Beach - for those of you who have never heard of this, Australia is the last place where folks are living - the rest of the world has perished because of atomic radiation, and that radiation is coming towards Australia. You know these people will be dead soon, and the effect on you is, like my brother's reaction devastating.

Those are the emotions I felt reading 2012.: Seeking Closure.

Is it an easy book to read? No - but it surely will get you thinking - with all the buzz about 2012 - from complete destruction to spiritual awakening - what will happen?

I remember when I was a little girl, the newscasters said that some ancient civilization predicted the end of the world a particular weekend. My parents were leaving out of town to go to a wedding. I was upset that my parents would leave my big brother and myself when the world was going to end.

But you know, they came back and the sun was still in its place.

It's a matter of trust -

While I hope 2012 opens a spiritual awakening, I trust we can work things out.

2012: Seeking Closure by Gregory Bernard Banks certainly will make you think. And hope we can behave differently if/when the time comes.

A great read.
