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.

Couldn't make it through the book

I really enjoyed Dekker's earlier works, but his newer works have been a let-down. I couldn't even make it all the way through Skin. The dialog was just too painful. It was cheesy and unrealistic. Also, the plot (at least as far as I got) seemed to be very derivative of House, the book he wrote with Frank Peretti. Dekker needs to slow down and put more thought into his books and stop trying to put out several novels in a year.

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.

Unpredictable twists

Mind bending story. Possibly too slow at parts but the gradual hints of something deeper going on in the story keeps you intriguing. Perfect wrapup at the climax with even a slight cliffhanger to leave you wondering even further

Weird

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

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.
