Going into this book and knowing it was “Christian fiction”, I really have to admit I didn't expect a great deal (read: anything) from it. There are really, really good Christian writers, but in general, they are writers who happen to be Christian (Madeleine L'Engle is an obvious example, as is Francois Mauriac); as with every other type of message, the really good ones just kind of let the message come through subconsciously and don't beat the reader over ...more
This is the fourth book I've read (tried to read) by Mr. Dekker. I am forced to the conclusion that I'm just not going to be a Te ...more
I couldn't put the book down when I was reading it because the story was so intense and gripping. I had to know what happened next... and "what happened next" totally blind-sided me. I never saw it coming. If you're looking for a great suspense/mystery/thriller story that's clean but not preachy, this one does it for the Christian and non-Christian alike.
However, the whole time I was reading ...more
Wow! My brain could not comprehend that ending at all!
This book is purely psychological and keeps you guessing about good and evil to the very end. This is a must read for those who love suspense, because I kept wondering, "What is the secret!!???" And when it was finally revealed, I just sat there with my mouth hanging open. It was hinted at, but too many clues in the book indicated otherwise.
I think I have become a new fan of Mr. Dekker.
It was thrilling, amazing, edge-of-your-seat thriller!!!! I couldn't put it down, I read it till late at night, and then had trouble sleeping! :D
I can't tell much of the plot, for that would give the story away, but here's a brief bit from christianbook.com:
Imagine answering your cell phone to hear a stranger's voice issuing a chilling threat: You have three minutes to confess your sin, or he'll blow your car to smithereens. You pull over and flee just in time---but the threats ...more

As going to review I currently have a yearly dose of conjunctivitis that I'm often plagued with but my love of reading isn't effected because (as said about CD) I have this book on audio but four disc's in and I'm sorry but I truly can't take another second.

One is foreshadowing the ending by telling you exactly what it is several hundred pages before it happens. So having a character say "Wouldn't it be crazy if...?!" and then telling you what happens 200 pages before the end just doesn't work for me. yes, that would have been crazy if it came out of nowhere, but it didn't.

How does Ted think of these things? My head is still spinning. And spinning and spinning and spinning.
I won't go into plot details here since I'm sure other reviewers already have, but let's just say that I did NOT expect the ending to be what it was. I highly recommend Thr3e to those who love gripping suspense. Actually, I don't think "gripping" is a strong enough word. I read this thing in two days, and it usually takes me a week or so to get through a novel. Whew.
It was a fascinating read, and the end was not what I had expected in the least! It took me completely by surprise.
In a lot of ways, this book was disturbing, but not always in a bad way. It challenged me to think deeply.

Y es que, ¿quien no cuenta con un secreto que desearía no rebelar a nadie, porque puede ser demasiado oscuro y perturbador para que los demás lidien con el?
¿Lo mejor del libro? Que cuando crees saber que está pasando Ted Dekker le da un giro de 180° a la historia.
Al final me alegro de haberle dado una oportunidad, ya que es uno de esos libros que amas u odias, defini ...more

I've been itching to read more of Dekker's books, so I decided to start with his first novel Thr3e. It had a great suspenseful first few chapters, but by the time I got to the middle, it became an extremely slow read. Too many unnecessary scenes, and clunky descrip ...more
Este libro en realidad me sorprendió. No esperaba tanto de este libro.
Al inicio del libro estaba emocionada porque, ¿qué es mejor que un buen crimen lleno de suspenso? Pero a la mitad me sentí un poco decepcionada porque se estaba convirtiendo en mucho de una sola cosa y solo se repetía y repetía. Hasta pensé que le daría tres estrellas. Pero los seis últimos capítulos fueron wow qué plot twist omg !!! . Ted Dekker es un GENIO. El final fue tan revelador y wowowoowow , eso. Lo amé.
