Who am I?

My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen 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

The second book was as good as the first, and will leave you ready for the next "episode."

Dragging you deeper into a world in which you're never quite sure where delusion ends and reality begins, Christy and Austin fight to discover that line of fantasy and sanity.
Angela Bycroft
Thankfully we didn't have to wait long for the second installment of Ted Dekker's Eyes Wide Open book as we carry straight on with the action from Identity. With both Christy and her friend Austin both starting to question their very sanity and no seeming way out of this nightmare they have discovered themselves in, the action revs up a notch further if that's even possibe.

Christy's repressed memories play an important role and Austin's desperate attempts to reach her on the ominous 'second floo
As good as the first one.
Dekker's thrillers are so well written.

Simplemente increíble, como cualquier cosa de este autor.
En esta segunda parte ya no sabes si las cosas se están resolviendo o se están enredando mas.
Dekker sigue mezclando las dudas internas que cualquier persona llegar a tener con problemas psicológicos.
Algo raro, hasta ahora no hay referencias a nada religioso, lo cual es raro ya que siempre saca estos temas. En fin, buena continuación y buen final, veamos como esta el tercero ;
Not quite sure what to think... Is it possible that Christy and Austin are patients who suffer from delusions of grandeur?

Mental illness or an extreme cover up to protect what? Can the facility be a front for something sinister?

Dreams... real or fake?

I'll need book 3 to probe further!

Okay, so, I am really liking this series of stories by Ted Dekker. I have finished the second book of the Eyes Wide Open series, Mirrors. A ) I am still lost...LOL. But, I am starting to get an inkling of an idea what may be happening. Watch me be wrong!

The story has very dark drama and well written. The main characters are very real and you can sense their emotions and can actually relate with them. I am beginning book three and look forward to finding myself, soon. LOL. The greatest aspect I l
I could not put this book down! So many questions, are they really insane, is it a conspiracy...

Looking forward to the next one!

Splendid page turner with one twist after another. Dekker does it again. This second book reels you in for the third.

I wrote a review for entire novel on my blog and am posting at each book section. Mirrors was my least favorite installment because I was so confused, but you have to read them all and it all evens out.


Identity (Book 1), Mirrors (Book 2), Unseen (Book 3) and Seer (Book 4) are all part of a four episode thrill ride from New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker. Combined, these sections puzzle together an almost 300-page book called Eyes Wide Open. First lau

There's a little more character development in this "episode," but not a lot. It was pretty exciting, as are all Dekker's fiction books, but I am still having a hard time accepting a lot of what Dekker says goes on in a psych ward. He's making it out to be a terrible place where they kill patients, do lobotomies, etc., and I'm sorry, but that's not realistic.

I really like Christy and Austin, and I can resonate with both of them, but somehow they seem to be... caricatures of actual people. For
Book two of a four e-book saga. Ted Dekker slowly tips his hand.

With the first book, Identity, I relished the return of mind-bending Dekker storytelling. With Mirrors, I think I'm getting a slight grasp of where he's taking us but the joy of reading Dekker is that you will double back on whatever assumptions you make many times over.

I like the pacing of this story so far. I like how this book in unveiling more of the past for Christy ... I mean Alice...perhaps Christy. These chapters fly by too
Look in the mirror and what do I see the uglier me looking back at me. Christy is stuck on the 2nd floor or the psychiatric ward and is trapped in her room in the dark. The only light that she sees is in the bathroom that is full of mirrors. It's amazing how we see ourselves and are never happy with our reflection. If you are reading this series, you can't help but see the fear in yourself. LOVED IT!!!
Mirrors drives you deeper and deeper into the delicious suspense. So well-written, I'm not even sure what's real about this book anymore.
Also, Austin is awesome, though Christy is either kinda self-centered or somewhat unstable.
I'm still not sure how I feel about the marketing ploy for this eBook series, but since "Mirrors" was on sale for 99 cents, I HAD to pick it up to see what happened after Book 1! It certainly didn't disappoint and with its length, I finished it in one sitting.

Dekker has a way with keeping on guessing, and in "Mirrors" I just can't figure out how things are going to turn out for Christy and Austin, but right now I'm really terrified...

Now, just to decide if I want to purchase the next eBook (Unse

I read this in one sitting. I'm ready to start the next book. Decker is a great writer. His characters are believable. I feel like I'm part of the plot.

A suspenseful story that was difficult to put down. Not as predictable as the first one. I reached the last page with the pressing urge to jump into the next one with both feet!
This book was a bit different than the first, since we are really getting into the whole psych ward thing now. I feel that not all psych wards are as terrifying as all of these books and movies make them seem, but I don't want to end up in one to find out.

After Austin, aka Scott, kills Fisher and he comes back to life unscathed, and Christy, aka Alice, starts seeing herself as completely different than she is, I am beginning to wonder if these two really are crazy. I am getting the feeling that
Protagonists are getting deeper and deeper into trouble. All the time I am wondering if they started where they are or came in from the outside and got trapped.
Joy Wilson
Crazy stuff happening in this short episode, what is the truth? Delusion and reality are hard to tell apart and I can't wait to see where the story goes next.
Patrick Cox
These books were just too painful to read. What the characters were going through were just too horrific. I found myself skipping pages until I got to the end.
Freaked out. of the things we talk about for fun, my husband and I, is 'if you somehow got stuck in an insane matter what you do to get out...they wouldn't believe you and you'd be stuck there!' Well...Dekker wrote a book about it! I love reading his books, because I know...this surface he's created...will shatter and then the real stuff gets ya! That's where I am...I'm stuck with Christy and Austin...or is it Alice and Scott??? But, where are we stuck, really??? That's the q ...more

Read the book in one day. I just could not put it down. Cannot wait to find out what happens next.
This second book in the series was much better than the first and continued the story line with more of an esoteric vibe. The ending was unexpected. The writing in this one flowed much better as well. Now on to #3!
Review on Amazon:
Review on my blog (to be posted 2/17):

After finishing Identity (part one) I could hardly wait to read Mirrors! What a crazy ride (pun not intended)! I have no idea what is really going on and now want to read part three, Unseen, asap. Great read!

*I did not get this for review. Someone lent me their Kindle copy (thanks!). All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
Another great episode! Really enjoying them!
Mary Harrison
Great book very fast moving
I am liking this series.

Oh the wait till next week (January 7th), is going to kill me.

The plot thickens a bit as Austin runs into the original "Alice" and she tells him that he sees it too, that he can see the key. It serves to just confuse him, but prove that there is something much more going on.

Meanwhile Christy is given some hypnotherapy treatment to delve deep into her past. She discovers that something has happened but she just doesn't know what.

It all culminates in a little showdown between Austin and Fisher.
Phillip Lemons
Here in the second episode of Eyes Wide Open, the story is starting to take shape. Our heroes are beginning to have an identity crisis. They have been mistaken for patients in a mental ward and they are trying everything to get back to the lives hey knew. The story appears to be bringing us to think about the difference between how we see ourselves and how others see us. As with the first episode, it is difficult to give a full review until the story is finished.

Book 1: the storyline was decent. I was excited to see where it was headed.
Book 2: WHERE is this going? It's a nail biter.
Book 3: OMG this is dragging on forever, just tell us already.
Book 4: are you serious. THAT is what it's about? Possibly the most non committal ending ever. I feel so duped. Like its going to be legandary, fantastic. But no wait, let's just make it some vague Biblical ending and not really give any kind of reason for anything.
