I had read other Peretti books before, but this is by far the best. I read the whole book in 2 days and it is one of my favorite books. The plot is very good, and the spiritual twist at the end was completely unexpected. This book also introduced me to Ted Dekker, who is now my favorite author.
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.
This book was absolutely amazing! It's my favorite book! It was a book I couldn't put down. It had supsense on every page and it gets you thinking. It makes you want to figure it out,but you can't because things can change in an instant. I definately recommend this book.
I was very disappointed with this book. I've come to expect a message of truth and hope (something that sets them apart from the world) when its by "Christian" authors, but I might as well read Stephen King!
Even though this book started out well it was easy to guess where it was going after awhile. Mostly I (and my husband were/)was disappointed because it was not the excellent job that I have come to expect from Peretti. If you are a Dekker fan then it might be okay. If you are a Peretti fan, maybe not.
House is one of the best books I've read. If you like this book you will also like other books by Frank Peretti such as The Oath or Monster. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat until you finish it.
I love Frank Peretti's and Ted Dekker's work. I read this book in a day-it was so hard to put down.It was spine-chilling, but had a good message about salvation and good vs evil. There were so many twists and turns-you didn't know what was going to happen next, which is a standard feature in both Peretti's and Dekker's novels. I think that is why I like these authors so much."House" is not for everyone, but for fans of Peretti and Dekker, it is a great read!
I started the book the day I received it. I had a hard time putting it down. The story line kept my attention and I wanted to know "who done it." It highlighted how each of hold onto things instead of turning them over to God. Excellent reading.
I love this book! I read it in 2 days the first time and now I've almost finished it again. Can't wait for the movie. I just hope they don't screw it up and change the story alot. If they do a good job, it should be a great movie. :)
This book was great!!!!! I waited for a couple months to borrow this from my friend, and was so excited to read it! It actually took me a whole entire week to finish it, but that's because I'm a slow reader. My brother finished it in a day or 2. This book freaked me out. It was sooo scary. But in a good way.
This is my first time reading a Dekker/Peretti book and I was terribly disappointed. The story rambled, was disjointed and at the end, left a LOT to be desired with a lackluster closing that was vague at best.
