I read almost half of this book and had to throw it in the trash. The graphic details of murders committed by an insane individual were over the top. Although CBD was offering this book, I saw no relation to Christian faith, God's Word or anything that would have redeemed this dark, unprofitable storyline. There was no foul language, but that did not save this book. As believers, we should be careful about what we take into our minds--I saw absolutely no value in this book--I neither learned anything of value nor was I entertained in a fashion that was God-honoring or noble.
The Bride Collector was an excellent book to read. After the first 100 pages, it got really hard to put the book down. Ted Dekker did an amazing job putting the book together, it was a good christian thriller. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes thrillers. It also had a little bit of romance along the way which I admired.
I wasn't sure what I would think of this book because I don't read much fiction. However, I took a chance on this one for some reason and I did truly enjoy it. In fact, I couldn't put the book down after the first few chapters. I'm partial to psychological thrillers as movies to begin with and this was right up my alley. First read from Dekker but if his others are like this, I will be a return reader! Loved it.
