"Dekker pens an absorbing thriller that convincingly blurs the lines between fantasy and reality....The Christian symbolism woven into the story will delight readers of faith, and the intriguing plot will interest general fantasy readers." (Publishers Weekly)
Not nearly as good as "Black", the first novel in this trilogy, and you would have to read that one first to understand this book. "Red" has some very good scenes, but is mostly a long narrative, with not much happening. While it is entertaining, it's just not as captivating or imaginative as I had hoped for. Maybe Ted Dekker is saving up his best ideas for "White" - the third in this series?
BLACK and RED were just outstanding. Ted Dekker is an incredible writer. Rob Lamont does an excellent job at narration. Get these fast and then get WHITE when it comes out.
As with the first two books, I could not stop listening, it kept me on the edge until finished, and I am very sorry to think I am just about to start the final book in the series. The narrator was fantastic as usual
Truth and Love should always be found together and when I read I look for that.
I love trying to piece everything together as I listen. This one really has made me eager to get the next book and start reading it now. There was so much depth of character in this one even though there was so many details to the story, I really loved this.
Ted Dekker is an imaginative author and does an excellent job at combining truth with fiction. Rob Lamont 's reading brings an infividual life to each character
the obvious christian allegory is enticing and well worth study
the only downside is that the pronunciation of some of the names changed from book one
I have to admit that I had high expectations for this book after finishing book 1 - Black. The book was good but it just didn't move the story forward enough for me. I really feel like the main events in book 2 could have been added to book one or three. There are events in this book that the reader needs to know so I don't recommend skipping this book. As for the narration, Rob Lamont did a good job. I find Rob Lamont does rush the dialog a bit, but it doesn't take away anything from the performance. I still give him 4 stars. I can't wait to see how Ted Dekker wraps things up in the final book of the trilogy!
Pulled me in.
The back and forth between worlds keeps you going.
Just this Ted Dekker series. Didn't like him at the beginning of black, but he grew on me.
I did it in 2 legs of a round trip, totaling 14 hours.
Can't wait for Green.
