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.
This book is excellent, as is the second. I couldn't put my iPod down! The sequel, Red, is an inevitable listen - you just get hooked. As for the people saying that the writing is "sloppy", etc., don't listen. I'm about to download White, the last of the trilogy. Just know that downloading this book is like downloading 3 (you'll definitely want the next two)! I read the review complaining about bad writing, and am very happy that I ignored it. It far surpassed my expectations... it's of "DaVinci Code" caliber.""
Having read "A Man Called Blessed" which was a gift - I was anticipating a good listen. However unless you are into horror books/movies the start will totally turn you off. Quit listening at chapter . Won't get the others. Really disppointed and a waste of money as far as I am concerned. Won't get any more of Ted Dekker's books.
