Publisher's Summary

Who am I?

My name is Christy Snow. I'm 17 and I'm about to die. I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete. No one knows where I am. My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me.

I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking. Some will say that I'm not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don t even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave.

My name is Christy Snow. I'm 17. I'm about to die.

So who are you?

In a return to the kind of storytelling that made Black, Showdown and Three unforgettable, Ted Dekker drags that question into the light with this modern day parable about how we see ourselves. Humming with intensity and blindsided twists, Eyes Wide Open is raw adrenaline from the first page to the last pure escapism packed with inescapable truth. Not all is as it seems. Or is it? Strap yourself in for the ride of your life. Literally.

    "Waste of time"
    What was most disappointing about Ted Dekker’s story?

    This plot and the constant repetition of phrases and shifts in time and settings teamed together to make the experience a complete waste.

    Story
    "Annoying Listening"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Keeping the plot "some way" believable / plausable


    What was most disappointing about Ted Dekker’s story?

    The story changed direction eratically .... a bland enough start ..... gaining traction and direction, then became more and more ridiculous. I think I got to chapter 23/24 and simply, could not listen to it anymore. It was my first Ted Dekker experience and sorry Ted, unfortunatley, my last.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The Narrator did an excellent job with really bad material


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Dissapointment

    Story
    "Do not waste your time"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. As a writer myself I am perfectly aware of what incredible tales one can concoct -- Ted Dekker does just that in what seems like a very promising book. But when that same writer has no idea where he's going -- IT REALLY PISSES ME OFF. It is down right infuriating. Dekker paints an extremely interesting premise - two kids trapped accidentally in a mental hospital where all kinds of crazy things in and out of reality take place but apparently Dekker doesn't even know which is which himself. This book leads nowhere. This book should be arrested for being such a %^$@ waste of time.


    What could Ted Dekker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Figured out what he was writing about. What was his story? What happened in the end to the other central character -- my god there were only two - you'd think he could figure it out.


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

    N/A


    What character would you cut from Eyes Wide Open?

    The writer.

    Story
    "Juvenile"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    He must have written this in middle school after a born-again experience. Perfectly awful, horrible narration... a true waste of time. Sad, because Dekker usually writes well and constructs great stores.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    Story
    "Intriguing"
    Would you listen to Eyes Wide Open again? Why?

    I think so, because it's a bit of mind bender and sometimes they are fun to read/listen to again


    What did you like best about this story?

    The real or not real aspect.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    who's the crazy one


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, decent climax, kinda fun how the ending ties into another (several other) series of Ted Dekker - though if you've never read Showdown it probably makes little sense.

    "A Waste of Time"
    What disappointed you about Eyes Wide Open?

    The lack of story line...no plot. This book was a meandering through a drug induced hallucination and was not worth the paper on which it was written.


    What was most disappointing about Ted Dekker’s story?

    What story??


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Philip Hodges?

    Someone who could pronounce the word "couldn't" correctly.


    What character would you cut from Eyes Wide Open?

    All of them.

    "Fast forwarded through a bunch of this one"
    What disappointed you about Eyes Wide Open?

    If you like books that make no sense and take forever to explain themselves, this one is for you. I think I picked it out of the wrong section, or maybe it was filed wrong. It belongs in sci fi or fantasy. So if that's your thing...
