Who am I?

My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.

OOOOOOOOOH, so that's why his next book is called "Outlaw" So glad I read this stories then.
Dekker never fails me.
Great thriller mix with a fantasticaly well written philosophical plot. Start seeing yourself with eyes wide open.

Otherwise, she thought, where do the corrections end? What is good enough? Can perfect be measured by a scale or a law of better or worse?

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.

Overall, I enjoyed the Eyes Wide Open episodes. The series left me guessing most of the time which is fun but I expected a wild conclusion to book four and ultimately I was left wanting.

I spent the first three books feeling that our protagonists were in great danger and as episode four plays out and our characters encounter someone new, everything changes. All of a sudden the danger is absent and it never returns. Instead it's an all out sprint to the unsatisfying end.

In truth, SEER, felt safe.

As the final of four parts of the book Eyes Wide Open, this review will cover the story as a whole.

Intriguing characters? Check. Wild fantastical tale? Check. Vivid setting/environment? Check.

In typical Dekker fashion, this tale was woven into a much bigger story -- and the connections you'll make by the end are thrilling and exciting connections that tie back into the larger Dekker mythology.

Can't wait to see how the continuation of this "new" saga unfolds. :)

This is a terrible book that clearly outlines the brain washing that is so prevalent amongst any religious group. Even the ones who claim, "It is not a religion but a lifestyle." I am appalled that this was even published. Austin's story is probably the most problematic as he is highly intelligent and is scrutinized until the end for being so. Only because he was unwilling to believe the ridiculous and false information that Christy fell for. The fact that we have these polar opposites, one who ...more

I loved this book!!! Loved the allegory of Christ that sees us as beautiful no matter what we see, illusion or not. This really hit me in a personal way as I sometimes allow fears to become my reality, when its just letting my mind be overtaken by lies from satan. Great little series!

The ending wasn't what I was expected, but kept me reading and wondering right until the end.
By the end of the book I was still left with questions. I think if I read Outlaw first, somethings would have made more sense.

Ted Dekker send me on a roller-coaster ride with this series. It was the first time, but not the last, that I've read a book by him. This book/series will keep you on the edge of your seat, finding yourself reading page after page and sometimes left totally confused.

**spoiler alert**

Perhaps I missed something in my following of Ted Dekker's publication notices, but while I anxiously had awaited the debut of this series, I did not realize that this conclusion to his four part "Eyes Wide Open" series would rather not conclude, but rather send his readers down a twisted turn back into a place I have missed: The Books of History Chronicles. The conclusion of the series was wonderful. Ted has created two very vibrant characters yet again in Christy and Austin, a

Really good, fast-paced read...if a little bizarre.

This final book brought the inevitable tie-in to Dekker's other works and also brought in a bit of allegory into the mix. By the time you get to the end of this one, you still feel a little unresolved on some points and I found myself kinda wondering, well...what was real and what wasn't. Which I think is the point. And I hope that some of those questions get answered in ensuing books as the final page of this one lets you know that this is the

I'm just gonna post a few thoughts on this last "book" in the Eyes wide open series. I never cease to be amazed at the richness of allegory that Ted Dekker creates to show truth,the battle of good and evil and the love that God has for us. I really enjoyed this series of books. I can't wait for the next one. I would follow that Outlaw character anywhere!
Jan 29, 2013 Kelli rated it it was ok
I found book four to be a confusing mess. I was not satisfied at all and have no clear understanding what Christy and Austin's experience in the mental hospital has to do with figuring out their past. Disappointed and moving on to read "Unbroken".
May 30, 2013 Jason rated it it was amazing
At first, the story, in Identity, began as just another strange psychological thriller, but here, in Seer, it turns out to not only be full of major twists and turns, but part of an extended universe of Ted's own handimaking. Now for the outlaws to take over.

Classically Dekker. The satisfying conclusion to the four part tale. I found each installment to be a mind-warping, creepy, adrenaline rush. Truly good and thought provoking.

Immediately following: "I found this book...done in four parts with this being the last be a wild ride of mental disturbance that was so suspenseful and made me really think. I loved this last part....what an amazing message of hope for life. Christian or not I think everyone can open their minds to this. Looks like there will be an even bigger story coming. A more in-depth review to come."

I gave Seer 5 stars and the rest 4 stars because this last installment was the very best.

Full review is available here.

When this, no, wait, these books came out, they were done in four parts. One quarter of the book was released each week until you finally had the entire book. I found Identity, the first part of the story, on Amazon for free (kindle edition). In fact, you'd have to look, but I'm pretty sure I saw it there last night, still for free.

This isn't my normal reading material and I had never read anything from Ted Dekker before, but

Well we made it to the end of this rollercoaster of a series and was it worth the ride? Oh yes and a little no.

The final installment has the same thundering suspense and physical horror that we've come to know in the first three installments, and somehow manages to be even more mind bending if that's possible.

We subtly shift from straight horror to a more aligory in it's take. Reality and fantasy collide and it's all we can do to hold on to our own.

This is one of those tales to really makes you

Review on my blog (to be posted 2/17):

Seer was a really good read! I was a little disappointed with/didn't like a few things that happened in the book, but it was still a great read. The ending was not what I was expecting and I liked being kept on my toes. It was also nice how Ted Dekker tied this book's story to some of his other books - I love how he does that!

Longtime fans of Ted Dekker will leap for joy after completing this book. If you enjoyed the twists of Thr3e and the turns of The Circle series and the Showdown saga, you will fall head over heels for the mind-altering aspects of Seer.

It's been written for so many reviews that it's become cartoonish but this is Ted Dekker in his element. When he can string you along at break-neck speed and offering just enough answers to keep you doubling back on your assumptions.

This is actually a short review of the four book series. As always with Dekker, there is a huge push for you to come to Christ. I personally really appreciate the way in which he is capable of sharing the word to those outside of the church family. In this story, it is difficult to determine what is real and what is illusion, or delusion. You buy into the issues because the characters feel so real. Dekker's strength is writing a taut story that begs to be read cover to cover as fast as you can. ...more

How annoying! What I thought was the end of a mini-series actually turns into being a prequel to a much larger series, and I for one, will not be reading.

What the hell just happened here?!? All of this was a figment of their imaginations? They were all trapped in their dark feelings, unable to see the beauty of the world? And a monastery?! Enough already. I get the point. This book was supposed to serve as a beacon of hope for all of those who feel lost or not good enough. That we are all perfec

I quickly read through all four parts of this book soon to be released as one book. it was awesome! Two young adults accidentally stumble into a hospital ward for mental patients...but they can't get out. The staff seems to think they are two inpatients that recentally escaped and that they're dilusional. the doctors use some forms of treatment that are pretty barbaric, and the minds of our two friends begin to slip. Until, one day, something wonderful happens, and you begin to understand what's ...more

I am almost at a loss for words! I just finished book four of the Eyes Wide Open series and I would have to say I am in a bit of a shock.

Seer, Book 4, was fairly action packed and a lot of questions answered. I can honestly say I did NOT expect the outcome of this book. I would highly recommend reading either the individual books are get the entire novel at once. You will be hooked and will want to read the entire thing.

I will not give too much away, but I will say this. In this book and in life

This is the final installment in the Eyes Wide Open Series. This one was a big let down from the other three books. First, the plot slows down considerably from the other three books. There is another character that's introduced in the book and I thought it was awkward the way he was brought in. It really upset the balance of the plot up to this point. I thought twice about finishing it but I couldn’t read the first three books and not finish the fourth. The ending was a little weak and was I de ...more

Today I finished the last book of the series, which was the best of the four. I've read many of Decker's series' and know his works are sometimes strange. This series tops all others, in fact at times I found it very disturbing. The story is suspenseful and sometimes tends toward the horror genre. It does have a very important message that is evident by the 4th book. I think it should be all one book because some people may be put off by book 1 and decide no to read the others. thereby missing t ...more

Wow... just... wow. This whole series has been probing, thought-provoking, adrenaline-laced, and so, so deep. I loved the suspense and mystery. And to be honest, I'm still a little unsure of what happened, but I think more will be explained as the Outlaw Chronicles goes on. Can't wait for it!
As far as the characters, Christy annoyed me some for a while, but by the end, I was totally rooting for her. Both her and Austin were phenomenal protagonists and I will definitely be reading more.

Ok, here it is. I bought into the promise, I paid for it in four separate volumes excited to take it in episodic doses and this is where I'm left, REALLY? I thought it a dark little treat that sent itself to the depth of despair and then I'm handed religion. Some may say the author is known for his religious content I do now.
I have a very strong opinion of religion, but it is that "my opinion" and will remain such as this is no more the forum for it than in a book I began reading for the fear fa

So -- Eyes Wide Open is one book. It was split into four smaller bites (Identity, Mirrors, Unseen, Seer). The first couple 'bites' completely hooked me. It seems this is a new series Dekker has started, which is entertaining - and I'll probably read the other books when they are released. I'm interested in the characters and curious about what else will happen to them. BUT - the ending was a little bit of a let down to me, but I'm willing to take the rest of the ride in hopes that the rest of th ...more
