it was amazing

Thr3e by Ted Dekker had me reading into the night and sleeping with my lamp on (as if the extra light would keep me safe!)

Things I loved about Thr3e:

Ted Dekker is an expert at building suspense through an entire book. In over 400 pages, I never once felt that the story lagged. That's impressive.

I love that this novel is creepy without bringing gore or perversion into the mix. It entertains, yet remains clean. No swearing. No sex. No over-done bloody scenes. Just pure suspense.

And the ending! I never suspected it. (Don't worry. No spoilers here.) Oh, I figured I knew what was happening or was going to happen at certain points, but then, BAM! Ted would change things up again so that by the end of the book, I just didn't see it coming. After all that, I would have been disappointed if the ending wasn't believable; but it was a plausible surprise.

My one complaint:

The last two chapters seemed like an attempt to wrap up the themes of the novel. I felt like I was being spoon fed to make sure I had received the message. I'd rather come to my own conclusions as to what I will take away from a book. Other than this tiny annoyance, I absolutely loved Thr3e.

(As for letting a younger audience read Thr3e by Ted Dekker: like I said, the book remains clean. There is no specific content in Thr3e that I would be concerned about having my child exposed to. That being said, you may want to consider whether your child has reached an age where they can handle a psychological thriller. Therefore, my recommendation would be: ages 13 and up.)
