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
-¿Pero puede un hombre ponerse personalmente fuera del alcance del mal?
El primer libro que leo de autoría plena de Dekker. Me gustó mucho. Me hizo acordar a El psicoanalista, de John Katzenbach.
Empieza muy bien. Ya en la primera página el autor nos salpica con el trasfondo del libro: la lucha entre el Bien y el Mal.
Es una novela intensa. Es un libro que me puso nervioso y me hizo sentir la adrenalina que vive el protagonista.
Algo negativo que tengo ...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.
Pueden decir lo que quieran de este libro, pero a mi me encantó!!!!!!!!!!!!! *O* (no leí muchos libros de este género y no puedo guiarme con nada, pero realmente disfruté mucho leyéndolo, los personajes me encantaron, creo que el autor supo desarrollar muy bien la trama y no me venía venir el final)
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
Wow, talk about edge of your seat thrilling! I was hooked from the beginning. My heart rate finally went down during the init ...more
Tuve buenos y malos momentos con este libro. Es un buen thriller, que empieza muy bien y muy intenso, pero que a la mitdad del libro decae un poco. Creo que con unas páginas menos hubiera estado mejor.
Aún así, "la resolución" levanta mucho porque cuando crees que resolviste el misterio, hay una vuelta de tuerca más y el escritor demuestra que el dió todas las pistas necesarias, solo que no nos dimos cuenta de lo que realmen ...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.
The guy reading this book has the worse reading voice I've EVER heard, he's reading it in a very low droopy ...more
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.
PG books with R-rated subjects. Like if there's a dangerous psychopath on the loose with serious anger and cont ...more

The job of any artist—writer, actor, painter, singer, musician, architect, and the list goes on—is either to entertain me, enlighten me, or both. Sometimes a piece of art does one or the other, sometimes it does both. Some examples from the movies:
Dead Poets Society. Here's a movie that both entertains and enlightens me, no matter how many times I view it. It's funny (come on, it's got Robin Williams in it, how can it not be funny?), it's dramatic (family relationships gone haywire), it's suspen ...more
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.
Kevin Parson is driving in his car when a man calling himself Slater calls his cell phone. He threatens Kevin and tells him he has exactly three minutes or his car is going to blow up.
Thus begins one of the best thrillers I have ever read. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and with each plot twist, my reader heart trembled. Who is Slater? Why ...more
Mi problema con el libro es que lo sentí mal escrito. Primero pensé que sería algo atribuible a una mala traducción, pero ya leí aquí en Goodreads otras reseñas en inglés comentando que la prosa no era mayor cosa.
Aunque más allá de la prosa y diálogos entre niños hablando como adultos (la conversación entre Kevin y Samantha sobre Balinda cuando acabab ...more
