What is the term for worse than awful? I had high hopes for this book given the reviews. The plot was inspired but the execution was just plain bad. By the end of the book I wanted to kill them all off!
THE ABSOLUTELY WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER DOWNLOADED FROM AUDIBLE!!!! The writing is terrible, none of the characters are likable and the person who is reading the book is awful. It is torture to listen to, and I have chosen not to finish the book. I really gave it a try. Don't waste your money or your time. If I could give it less than one star I would.
Someone who is very wrapped up in murder mysteries and don't really think about the book content.
Probably not - not a good impression. If I did, it'd be through the library and I couldn't find anything else
They were all blasé
Hard to say - wasn't that attention getting
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
I PROBABLY WILL. IT WAS VERY TENSE AT TIMES. THE FIRST HALF WAS NOT THAT GOOD BUT THE SECOND PART WAS GREAT.
IN THE SECOND HALF. TENSION GALORE.
ROWDY. BUT THEY WERE ALL DONE WELL.
THE WHOLE SECOND HALF WAS ENTERTAINING.
OFTEN WHEN READING WE LOOK FOR THE PROBABLE EVEN IN FICTION.
THIS BOOK IS NOT PROBABLE. BUT I LIKED THE BOOK VERY MUCH.
I have never listened to such a piece of crap. Completely unbelievable and mind-numbingly repetitive. Waaaay too many characters, some of whom do nothing at all. Coulda been great--creepy villain, inventive way of killing--but just totally illogical actions and dialogue of and between characters. I will NEVER listen to anything else by Dekker.
I have read and listen to a few different Ted Dekker books and they are not my type. They start out good and plausible then spin out to fantasy land. They turn into a religious/higher being books. The books go from a believable book to a, you must believe in a higher power, blind faith book. I personally like realistic fiction books, not fantasy books. If it wasn't for the mentally-ill characters in The Bride Collector, I would not have been able to finish listening to this book. I don’t believe I will be reading or listening to any more of Ted Dekker’s work.
This book was so far-fetched with unbelievable characters that I can't believe I wasted my time listening to the entire book. I kept thinking it would get better &/or more believable. Don't waste your time or money on this book.
I agree with Betty & Kerry. It is poorly written and poorly read. Don't waste you money unless you like gruesome scenes.
I agree with "Betty" 110% except I did finish it. I actually laughed during parts that were hard to believe. Do not waste your money on this book.
