I love Dekker's book, and have read or listened to a great majority of them; but I must confess this was the best one EVER! Any further said would destroy the magnificence of this book. I highly recommend it!
I actually haven't read the book, but boy the audio is incredible!
Choosing a favorite character is a tough call to make. They all have a certain 'depth' to them.
I was particularly moved by the sacrifice and love that drove Heather and Jessica.
This riveting tale kept me at the edge of my seat and gave me reason to ponder. The birth place of evil is many a time innocuous-or perhaps, appears so to untrained eyes.
I'm not sure I could call this book enjoyable. It was very intense and thought provoking. It made one think about the nature of evil and how we relate to it. Dekker is very talented in that he combined both a riveting story and a treatise on evil in one book.
The narrator was very good. I enjoyed his portrayal very much
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in spiritual thrillers. I loved the set up of the book. It went from a news reporters account of the story to the events of the story. Really good fiction.
I loved how the story played back and forth between the ongoing FBI investigation and a future news story about the life and creation of the serial killer. It was a clever way to give background facts and even build some sympathy for the killer. The ending twist involving his sister was brilliant. I didn't see it coming.
This book was a challenge and the narrator did a masterful job of creating diverse and some truly creepy voices.
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
Now that is a question I cannot answer. I am not a writer & the book already exists.
I guess the brother & sisters relationship
Yes he did
I don't think so.
Even in fantasies I want some reality. I can embrace Near Death Experiences(NDEs) and exorcism, but I want the everyday to be connected. When out of cell tower range so that the heroine can't call for help, how can she call a priest? There were many such discrepancies. And locating the killer by means of the hero's having several NDEs was over the top. And then we have his possession by the Devil in the killer.
To me, the book lacked unifying flow of story.
I have read most of Ted D's book and especially like this one! Very believable plot making it seem like non-fiction than fiction!!!!
