Not nearly as good as "Black", the first novel in this trilogy, and you would have to read that one first to understand this book. "Red" has some very good scenes, but is mostly a long narrative, with not much happening. While it is entertaining, it's just not as captivating or imaginative as I had hoped for. Maybe Ted Dekker is saving up his best ideas for "White" - the third in this series?
BLACK and RED were just outstanding. Ted Dekker is an incredible writer. Rob Lamont does an excellent job at narration. Get these fast and then get WHITE when it comes out.
Red was amazing, as was Black. I'm looking forward to listening to White next! In Red, the parallel to the ultimate sacrifice was creative and touching. Ted Dekker is a truly anointed author. May God give him strength in his life struggles.
As with the first two books, I could not stop listening, it kept me on the edge until finished, and I am very sorry to think I am just about to start the final book in the series. The narrator was fantastic as usual
Truth and Love should always be found together and when I read I look for that.
I love trying to piece everything together as I listen. This one really has made me eager to get the next book and start reading it now. There was so much depth of character in this one even though there was so many details to the story, I really loved this.
the obvious christian allegory is enticing and well worth study
the only downside is that the pronunciation of some of the names changed from book one
