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.

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

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.<br/>

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...

Crashed my Kindle

Would you try another book from Ted Dekker and/or Philip Hodges?

Although I really enjoy Ted Dekker books, this download crashed my device. I can not review the story because of the error. I am afraid that I should not have downloaded from a site that I was not familiar. Now my device is unusable.
