This book "Black", is the first of many I read by Ted Dekker. He's got a real nac for alternate realities like no other author. Intriguing story line snagged me from the get-go, so I had to listen to the next two books in this 3 book series. I highly recommend Ted Dekker for his orginality in unusual yet highly interesting story telling. Refreshing, new, and wonderful.
well I listen to this and it was strange- I bought it on sale, which was good.
I like fantasy and Sci Fi but this was a little far out for me
enjoyed it but will not read any more
This book was great! It held my attention, and made me want to keep listening. It also made me want to check out the sequels. I thought it was innovative, well written.
Great Book Like it very much. It is a book that makes you think about some of our own DREAMS. Wonderful bought all three books, I know I will not be disappointed.
A breathtaking book that picks up action and suspense as it moves forward. Ted Dekker has produced another masterpiece. This is truly a stunning allegory where 2 worlds depend on one mans actions. Highly recommended.
Maybe it is just me but I felt the book was lessened in audio form. The narrator was't awful but I felt the audio book lost a lot of the depth of the written book. The main character especially came off better in my imagination.
Semi Audio nut
A total waste of time and money. The 4 star average rating doesn't appear accurate and certainly isn't deserved. The story is too schizoid, awkward and full of shallow, unrealstic, dull characters and situations. The fairy tale "Good v Evil" world isn't even a good retelling of the Garden of Eden and Original fall from grace. Satan(Teleel -sp?), black bat devils, white bat angels, Mikel(the archangel?), etc, etc - give me a break.
Dekker should have stayed in the jungle and out of writing.
Can I get an Amen?
For the life of me, I could not get into this storyline. It was fantasy and reality mixed and the character was so, so boring. I simply could not finish it and am sorry I used a book credit to purchase it. The characters are unbelievable, false and too simple. I would not recommend this book to snyone for fear they would resort to suicide.
