I bought this book for my 12 year old son. He would have loved it, but I did a preview read and decided that he needs to wait until he's older. There are themes of romance, though no overt sex. But mostly, the main character, a genius college age guy, has unresolved questions about God and religion, and these never truly resolve for him. And he remains fairly hostile to (all) organized religions. This is fine for me, but I would prefer more "religion neutral" or "pro-Christian" themes in material for my younger children since I am a Christian. Otherwise, if you are an adult, this is an entertaining thriller. I enjoyed it.
This story grabs you in a vice-like grip and doesn't let you go! Its a fascinating ride between cultures and religions that doesn't overdo it, but really sends you on a learning curve to Saudi Arabia! Dekker doesn't disappoint!
Now, i'm a redneck christian country boy who loves good action and good realistic violence, while also a good message to find inside a book. not too big on love stories, that is the stuff for girls to read. but this book was so good i went out and bought it after borrowing it from a lady who reccomends books for me. the way he combines love, good action, suspense, and a message of how true love really is, i reccomend this book to guys. show them how to really take care of and love girl THE RIGHT WAY, and still stay true to who you are. good job Mr. Dekker
I loved this book! It was fast paced and . It is a book that after a while when you forget the details you want to go back and read it. I am a huge reader and I want to read more of Ted Dekker's books. He is a Christian, suspense author that is definitely worth reading!
I really love reading Ted Dekker novels. He has such a creative grasp of spiritual truth and I truly appreciate the metaphors he uses which so aptly express my own spiritual journey. I have been saved by grace have become "horde" and washed anew by Jesus' blood. Thanks Ted, God has given you a gift to minister to me and others I of whom will share these truths.
A very exciting read! A very well written story that had me staying up late and not being able to get very much of anything else done because I couldn't put the book down until I finished it. Ted Dekker is an excellent writer and the plot plus the unique gift of the protagonist fascinated me beyond measure. A writer of less calibre would have butchered the story. I have bought untold number of books based on a fascinating synopsis only to be bitterly disappointed because the writer was a hack and butchered the story. Ted Dekker is a masterful writer and when I buy a book written by him I can be confident I will enjoy it.
This book remains one of my favorites. I have also read the first version of this book "Blink". It has the same story line as Blink, but some parts of the book go more in depth or are more condensed. The main characters of this book are Seth Borders, a genius college student who begins to see the future and various possibilities of futures; and Miriam, a Saudi Arabian Princess. This book has a great storyline and it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it! :) I highly recommend this book!
