I'm a sucker for a sequel to a good story, that's probably why I picked this one. The Book One subtitle infers that if I like this one, I can try the..Show More » next.
Totally misleading. This title just stops, with a contrived cliff-hanger. Not a complete Book, One or otherwise.
On the plus side, the story is engaging and actually very original, which only contributes to the frustration at the end.

I would like to respond to 'low carb second serving's' statement, "Not nearly as good as "Black", the first novel in this trilogy, and you would have ..Show More »to read that one first to understand this book." Since this is a trilogy, of course it needs to be read in order. Yes, please read Black first! This is a series of books not to be missed and in my opinion the best Christian fiction I have read to date. I appreciate Ted Dekker's creativity and Christian insight. It is very innovative and a satisfying read!
The series is a must 'read'. Black, Red, and White takes the reader on two journeys. The reading is fantastic. The stories move quickly from one reali..Show More »ty to another, or was it all just a dream?
This series is a must have for fiction readers, regardless of religious background. Well done.
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, extr..Show More »emely fast paced and at the end you just say Ahhh! Read it.. Read the others first then read this one.
