If you read the trilogy you will love this book and how it all ties into them. And you understand how it all comes together. Beautifully written, extremely fast paced and at the end you just say Ahhh! Read it.. Read the others first then read this one.
Another great book for Dekker in the series. I really hated to hear that this is the end of a great series. I just couldn't stop listening to it, when I got to the last CD I sat in my car for over an hr just to listen to how it would end. This is a must listen for all Dekker fans.
I barely made it through the book; if I had heard one more chant of "he tells the truth," I probably wouldn't have although earlier ones should have tipped the balance. Visually, the story is powerful, but the language and plot line are weak - melodramatic and stilted.
If you've read the trilogy you know it ends with a ton of questions left unanswered. Even so, that ending would have been more than satisfactory had
the author not seen fit to write this, book zero for the Circle trilogy.
As in the other books, we follow the same major characters but this time, spend much more time in the future.
A great listen/read great story of loss, love, war and faith but, the end makes me think there will be another installment.
Really enjoyed Black, Red, and White. But, Green was really different...so dark and strange at times. A lot of excessive blood, gore, and sexual references that made Green feel really different from the original 3 books. Suddenly vampires and excessive references of consuming blood, and unnecessary seductive actions from characters that seemed so out of place when compared with the other books. Some parts of the story were creative and entertaining, but kept taking really dark turns that were disappointing. The reader of the 1st 3 books was fantastic. The reader of this one was different, and although he was OK, he wasn't nearly as engaging as the original reader. If this one were a movie, it would be rated R in the horror section rather than PG13 in the thriller section like the originals. Just my opinion.
The Circle Series was incredible!!!! What an imagination Ted Dekker has!!! I am looking forward to enjoying more of his books!
This series comes to an exciting and well executed conclusion in this closing novel. I enjoyed the narrator as well as the story. I would recommend this to anybody that enjoys Christian fiction.
This book was an excellent listen. It held my attention throughout. In Green, Ted Dekker truly brought this series to its full Circle. He made a brilliant move by writing this addition to his trilogy.
"Great addition to the series"
Do yourself a favor and read the entire circle series. This is the last in the series I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did but it as good as all the others. Fast paced, lots of action while still managing to be thought provoking.
