This book was amazingly suspenseful and a great read. I loved it. Since the age of fifteen I had been a big Stephen King fan. While at the public library one day I was looking for the book THE SHINING by Stephen king but they didn't have it. Bummer. So I went to the P section of the hardcover novels and low and behold I find House. I started reading it as soon as I got home and finished it by the next week. House is like the novel Desperation by Stephen King in the way it begins; a young married couple driving down a backwoods road looking for their destination and then they get pulled over by a state patrolman, but that's the only thing similar between the two books, besides that their two totally different novels. I strongly urge this book to re fans of the supernatural genre and Stephen King fans. Good job Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker.
This book rocks! i love Peretti and Dekker, and together they rocked the house with it. i got it for christmas, and i stayed up all night reading it. read it all that night too.:) the message is great; look inside yourself and see how evil your mind can become when you don't keep your guard up, thoug you may think you are. Mr. Peretti and Mr. Dekker, keep em' coming!
This is a great supernatural thriller that mostly felt like a Dekker book to me. I can see a little bit of Peretti's influence, but I heard Dekker most of the way through. Mind-bending reality that doesn't make sense for quite a while (and it's NOT supposed to) combines with spiritual warfare and a little bit of romance to make a great Christian read! The ending was a little inconclusive(and took a half star off the review), but the point was VERY Christian and pointed readers directly to the cross for mercy. A thrilling book that kept me up all night and thinking about it for days. I would most definitely recommend this to a friend.
