Having heard great things about Ted Dekker's works, I was highly disappointed with this one. The writing was so bad, I couldn't read past the first two chapters. It was so full of cliches and corny phrases, I couldn't pay attention to what was happenning. The characters were shallow and stereotypical. I seriously could not go on. I wonder if all of Dekker's writing is this bad; I seriously hope not.
I usually read fiction as a mental distraction from my work on my lunchbreak. I had no idea,when I picked up Thr3e, that I was about to get a front row seat, into a world where spiritual warfare with all it's tenticles was going to take me for a mind-blowing adventure. This was my first Ted Dekker book, and I'm hooked. Great to meet you Ted.
Awesome, I was totally surprised at the end and somewhat disappointed because I was rooting for Kevin and was so shocked at the outcome. I kept saying to myself this cannot be real. I really could relate with the three personalities since I see myself in a similar but not so extreme situation as we all are.
This book is wonderful!!! I highly recommend it! Now below someone said it was awful that Mr. Dekker has a dark mind and does not (think) like a Christian should. I beg to disagree. He is definitely a Christian. His writing focus on the battle between good and evil not just around you but inside you. He write from the characters angle the characters beliefs and you are able to watch their faith grow from learning to trust in God. A very good book this is.
This was the first book I ever read of Ted's and now I'm a die hard fan!!!!!!! This book does a great job at keeping your attention and this book seriously has the BEST ending EVER!! It was so surprising. I never could have guessed it. But I won't spoil anything. Ted is my all time favorite author. I like unusual stories and he is perfect for that. Some of my friends are obsessed with like western love stories. That bugs me. Those can be good stories sometimes, but honestly, I'd rather spend time reading a story that really makes me think. And its really hard to find good suspense/mystery/scary stories that keeps a christian focus. Ted Dekker does a perfect job of that. He's the best!! :)
