Critic Reviews

"A freak tornado drives five characters together in the little Nevada town of Summerville in this striking morality tale." ( Booklist)
"Listeners will tug at their collars and grip their steering wheels, and families will wonder why Dad is still sitting in his car in the driveway as Dekker delivers the chills that inspire a solid performance by Verner." ( AudioFile)

Koontz-style writer

Any additional comments?

This book is fast-paced and keeps you listening. Dekker's stories seem similar to Koontz-type stories with a more philisophical Christian focus. The writing (at least in this particular book) didn't feel quite as mature as a Koontz book. By this, I mean the characters and dialogue weren't quite as developed and felt more simple; however, the overall idea Dekker illustrated through his story felt well thought out and was intriguing. I look forward to listening to this story again now that I see the big concept Dekker explores in it.

Weird

Very strange storyline. I was left scratching my head at the end. Contains about every cliche you can think of.

Amazing!

This is one of my favorite books of all time. Ted Dekker does a great job of drawing you into the story and once you are in you cannot stop! Through the twists and turns, you think you have the story figured out but you don't. Buckle up and get ready for a wild ride.

Sophomoric book, but well read

If you're looking for a well narrated book where the scary guy shows how threatening he is by eating mustard by itself right from the jar <dun, dun, duuuunnnn>, this is for you. I wasn't sure what "Christian horror" really was, but now I know it's pretty much what I thought it was and uh...nope.

Skin

This book keeps you wondering what is going on and why. Makes for a good book all the way around. Ending is not what I expected either. Thank-you Ted Dekker.

The good and the bad

I hard a hard time getting into the story. The first half felt drawn out, which made it hard to comit to finishing. But, I paid for this book and I'm gonna see it through. Half way through, the story, pace, and tone shift. It felt like a different book. More engaging and evenly paced. The performance of the Audio book was good. He did an excellent job differentiating voices of characters, but felt unexpressive at times.

So push through the first half, and you'll be rewarded with a good mystery story the second half. Perhaps a Ying and Yang, good and evil framework...
