Awesome, dastardly characters are my favourite! :D I've had this book on my shelf for the better part of a year, but I was putting it off until I'd finished school so that I would have the time and energy for all those characters etc. My husband also has been nagging me incessantly to read it - he's a big fan of the show, and since I've always intended to read the books, I won't let him watch it when I'm around LOL

well, by-george, you must hit a UBS and get them!! i highly recommend these books to everyone. i don't think it's fair to pigeon-hole the books under sci-fi, fantasy or what have you... they have a little of everything. I didn't think they would be interesting; especially after attempting and failing a reading of Outlander by Diana Giabaldon; i felt it was a lost cause. I was wrong. The writing had me hooked immediately and i instantly bought 2 more books...

do not be overwhelmed with the amount of characters; believe me, you can't forget them...

I have been watching your progress and wondered how you were liking it, Janie. I may need to add it to my ever-increasing TBR... :)

It is actually much better than I thought it would be. I tried reading Peretti before 'The Visitation' and could not get into that one. Dekker is far better. But this one is really very good! I am pleased!

That sounds like a great book Kathy, I've added it to my ever expanding list.:)


message 26: by Kathy (new)

Kathy (bookgoddess1969) Mine keeps expanding, too, Tracy. Just when you think you are making headway on your TBR list, it just gets longer and longer and longer. lol

Just wait until you do give Dekker a go.. you're sure to love his style! May I highly recommend Adam?

I dont think you would be sorry Alondra. Dekker is quite good. I would start with Adam or Thr3e. Both very good!

Thanx, Dustin and Janie; Both are on my list!! :)


message 33: by Janie (new)

Janie Johnson Awesome! I have so many more Dekker books to read. And I am looking forward to it. One of his newest, The Sanctuary, I am really excited about but have to read The Priest's Graveyard first.

Janie- I have many more Dekker books to read, as well! We should do a buddy read or something, what do you say?


message 36: by Janie (last edited Nov 25, 2012 11:36AM) (new)

Janie Johnson Would love it Dustin! How about this next month? I only have 3 buddy reads for December. I am really wanting to read "The Priests Graveyard, and The Bonemans Daughter. Also I have House that Frank Peretti joined him on. Also I wanna do a reread on Thr3e! So any of those suit me just fine. Hehe this will be a great read Dustin, ty for asking. :)

The Priest's Graveyard and BoneMan's Daughters are two of my faves. I kept having to sit the latter down to regain my composure because some of the scenes were THAT disturbing, but oddly I found myself cackling at certain parts that may not have been intended to be funny. But then, fictional serial killers do tend to crack me up sometimes.

Thr3e made my head spin so much that it dang near unscrewed from my neck.

You are very welcome, Janie!

I have no idea when I could do it, because I'm really hoping to be a part of the Atlas Shrugged buddy read, and that's going to take awhile to get through. I'd be up for any of the titles you suggested, though, thank YOU! Also, we have a copy of Kiss and I've been dying to read it!


message 39: by Alondra (new)

Alondra Picking up Bad Moon Rising and Thr3e..all for a little thrills and chills, ladies and gentlemen. :D


message 40: by Rosalie (new)

Rosalie Turner I'm reading "Some of My Best Friends Are Black". I just started but I think it will be a most interesting book.

I can see that about Thr3e. It was super crazy! And I loved the twist! I look forward to a lot more books from Dekker!

You just let me know when you are ready to start any of them and then we can get started. No rush! And yea I have not bought Kiss yet, but it will be one I read in the near future.

All right, sounds great! I am really looking forward to doing a buddy read with you, Janie! And you know I can't wait to experience more of Dekker's brilliance!:)

message 46: by Jason (new)

Jason (Jokers_Knight_Out) Tartarus and it's already like the one before it (A Hideous Beauty), then it's going to be filled with quirky humor and thought-provoking mentions of the spiritual realms and sciences.
