What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Phenomenal Story - Intense"
    If you could sum up Red in three words, what would they be?

    Pulled me in.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The back and forth between worlds keeps you going.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Lamont’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just this Ted Dekker series. Didn't like him at the beginning of black, but he grew on me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did it in 2 legs of a round trip, totaling 14 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for Green.

    "Worthy Sequel"

    Red continued the "Circle Trilogy" quite nicely. I found the story quite gripping and I happily downloaded "white", the next and final installment, immediately, even though I had no credits left. I'm glad I did.

    "WOW"

    This trilogy was unbelievable! I had no idea what I had gotten myself into when I downloaded the 1st book--BLACK. It took me awhile to get through that one, but then RED & even WHITE, I couldn't wait to go on trips to hear what was going to happen next. I was in tears as the correlation between the Bible & these 3 books became clear.
    If you are trying to decide if or if not, give it a chance---it will amaze you and cause you to think. I know that there are times when something from one of the three books will come back to my memory and all of a sudden it clicks as to what it REALLY means.

    "Red"

    This wasn't quite as good as the first book in the series, but it was still entertaining. It was a decent continuation the "Black".

    "Only for fans of"

    With BLACK, this trilogy got off to an interesting, if not entirely-original, dual dimension/reality premise. But the sloppy writing (frequently-repeated descriptive words in the same sentence, too-easy obstacle resolutions for paper-thin characters, and derivative Biblical "parallels" which feel more like laziness than homage) combined with amateurish, clunky narration (which sounds to me like a minister moonlighting as an audio book reader) made this "epic" trilogy feel more like an over-hyped, thinly-veneered sermon on the mount that anything approaching engrossing fiction. And WHITE is, by far, the worst offender of the three books in this regard.

    I felt compelled to offer this opinion because many reviews of the Dekker books have been so over-the-top glowing that I now believe that the author's primary readership must be among the ranks of hard-core "believers". About half-way through book two, RED, this occurred to me and after a web search, I could find not a single review of a Ted Dekker book that did not originate from a "Christian" site. And - surprise, surprise ? not one reviewer had a single criticism.

    Don't get me wrong, there were some very imaginative elements to the story - and I have nothing against "Christian Fiction" or any other genre of writing. I'd just prefer to have a bit more truth in advertising. This is a Christian story for Christian readers who are so glad to have anything to read that even pretends to be suspenseful or exciting that they are happy to overlook the author and narrator's shortcomings, and will praise this trilogy to high-heaven . . . no pun intended ;)

    I love cozy mysteries, historical fiction, autobiographies, and biographies. I enjoy getting lost in a great book!

    "Good But Not Great"

    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!

    "Breaking out of the BOX"

    I must say that i have enjoyed reading this series. It is great to get stretched in our view of our wonderful and holy GOD. The story has a little bit of a slow point in the middle but comes right back with a great end. I believe the "lull" is due to the reality that most people do not have 11 hours to sit down at one time and listen to the book as a whole.

    It is most obvious that our Brother in Christ who is writing this targets both saved and unsaved. The believer will cherish these ideas than an unbeliever. We all have the choice to accept the truth or reject it. In the end God will be Elohim. Thank you for your ministry of writing!
