I picked up this book because I love thrillers and after reading the synopsis I thought I'd give it a try. What a mistake. I can't figure out how this could be considered a thriller. It was such a boring book but I kept hoping. The book dragged on and on, focusing on details that were not only unnecessary but also dragged out the tale needlessly. You could tell the author was trying to create and build suspense everytime it got around to finding the "bomb", but it was just laughable. About two-t [...]
Did you see Adaptation? Do you remember that part where fictionalized version of real life screenwriter Charlie Kaufman's (totally fictional) twin brother Donald is telling him about the terrible-sounding screenplay he's written? Here's some :Donald: Okay, well here's the twist. We find out that, that the killer really suffers from multiple personality disorder, right? See, he's actually really the cop and the girl. All of them are him. Isn't that fucked up?Charlie: The only idea more overused t [...]
Ted Dekker, Thr3e (Thomas Nelson, 2003)Going into this book and knowing it was “Christian fiction”, I really have to admit I didn't expect a great deal (read: anything) from it. There are really, really good Christian writers, but in general, they are writers who happen to be Christian (Madeleine L'Engle is an obvious example, as is Francois Mauriac); as with every other type of message, the really good ones just kind of let the message come through subconsciously and don't beat the reader o [...]
Lectura conjunta con el grupo 221 b Baker streetEste es uno de los casos muy extraños de un libro que tiene todo para ser excelente pero que al final me hizo sentir que faltaba algo. No se si fuera porque gran parte del tiempo lo sentí como que ya lo habia visto en algun otro lugar o porque Kevin me desesperaba enormemente perono me encanto, simplemente me gusto mucho, pero más que por la trama en si fue por el trabajo que nuestroprotagonisgta se encontraba preparando. En verdad que ese aspec [...]
Más de lo mismo pero entretenido. Capaz vuelva al autor, dentro de todo me dejó una buena impresión, pero, como ya dije, no lo considero nada fuera de lo normal, e incluso me pareció, hasta cierto punto, mal llevado a cabo. De todas formas lo recomiendo para pasar el rato.
I really enjoyed this book. It was the first book that I read of Ted Dekker's, and I was so impressed with his knowledge and writing techniques. The story is thrilling and was a perfect page turner for my husband (who isn't an avid reader) and me. And I LOVE the endingg twist.
4,5Pueden decir lo que quieran de este libro, pero a mi me encantó!!!!!!!!!!!!! *O* (no leí muchos libros de este género y no puedo guiarme con nada, pero realmente disfruté mucho leyéndolo, los personajes me encantaron, creo que el autor supo desarrollar muy bien la trama y no me venía venir el final)¡LO AMÉ!
Let me open for those of you who don't know me by saying, I'm a Christian. I read a lot and am always on the look out for good fiction. I also like good Christian fiction. Ted Dekker has written several books and is a very popular writer and I wish him the best. If you're his fan and I see he has many more power to you and I'm happy for you. I see many liked this book.This is the fourth book I've read (tried to read) by Mr. Dekker. I am forced to the conclusion that I'm just not going to be a Te [...]
Based on reading Thr3e, I'd say that Ted Dekker is an excellent storyteller, but not the greatest writer. I couldn't put the book down when I was reading it because the story was so intense and gripping. I had to know what happened next and "what happened next" totally blind-sided me. I never saw it coming. If you're looking for a great suspense/mystery/thriller story that's clean but not preachy, this one does it for the Christian and non-Christian alike.However, the whole time I was reading it [...]
Wow! este libro me recordó porque amo los thrillers. No lo ví venir, si bien el secreto ronda, la explicación del título del libro me encantó. Y la reflexión muy precisa. Recomendado total!
One of the smartest things I've read.My Dekker-fangirl-heart needs a reread <3
my mind is still spinning over that ending. o.o
Don't read this review if you don't want the plot twist revealed.I can't believe I just spent 4 hours reading this book. 4 hours of my life that I can't get back. It's 352 pages that should have ended at about 175. If there is anything that I hate it's a "let's fill this in with something" "Three's Company" (no pun) miscommunication conjecture-laden spun up on crank plot. What I hate more is a "Three's Company" miscommunication conjecture-laden spun up on crank plot trying to inject sinister ove [...]
4 StarsWow! My brain could not comprehend that ending at all!This book is purely psychological and keeps you guessing about good and evil to the very end. This is a must read for those who love suspense, because I kept wondering, "What is the secret!!???" And when it was finally revealed, I just sat there with my mouth hanging open. It was hinted at, but too many clues in the book indicated otherwise. I think I have become a new fan of Mr. Dekker.
Wow. Pure genius. I wasn't expecting the ending. (All Ted dekker books will be 5 stars from what I see)
LEIDO PARA EL 2015 READING CHALLENGE: #11 A BOOK WITH A ONE WORD TITLETuve buenos y malos momentos con este libro. Es un buen thriller, que empieza muy bien y muy intenso, pero que a la mitdad del libro decae un poco. Creo que con unas páginas menos hubiera estado mejor. Aún así, "la resolución" levanta mucho porque cuando crees que resolviste el misterio, hay una vuelta de tuerca más y el escritor demuestra que el dió todas las pistas necesarias, solo que no nos dimos cuenta de lo que rea [...]
READ THIS BOOK!!!It was thrilling, amazing, edge-of-your-seat thriller!!!! I couldn't put it down, I read it till late at night, and then had trouble sleeping! :D I can't tell much of the plot, for that would give the story away, but here's a brief bit from christianbook:Imagine answering your cell phone to hear a stranger's voice issuing a chilling threat: You have three minutes to confess your sin, or he'll blow your car to smithereens. You pull over and flee just in time---but the threats kee [...]
Al inicio del libro estaba emocionada porque, ¿qué es mejor que un buen crimen lleno de suspenso? Pero a la mitad me sentí un poco decepcionada porque se estaba convirtiendo en mucho de una sola cosa y solo se repetía y repetía. Hasta pensé que le daría tres estrellas. Los seis últimos capítulos me dejaron con la boca abierta. Un final inesperado, un gran plot twist. Aplausos para el autor.
I picked this book up because I liked the cover (at the time it was just white with the word Thr3e on it). (Yeah, I judged.) but as soon as I started reading it I was instantly hooked. It was incredibly suspenseful, but not scary. I was on a hunt after I finished for more by him, he is an AMAZING author. I found out later he was actually deemed a Christian book author, and yet I would have never known based on the books. They are not preachy or faith oriented at all, which is a good thing. Give [...]
Este libro es una lastima total Se va volviendo cada vez mas aburrido luego de la trama inicial que te atrapa y promete mucho. Su principal argumento (la confesión del protagonista de su pecado mas oscuro) se torna bastante caricaturesca de parte del autor, y el final bastante insuficiente la verdad. Sin embargo aporta bastantes momentos entretenidos pero sin llegar a ser una obra de 5 estrellas.
Oh Brenda, oh Brenda at WV Stitcher, you reminded me not to judge a book by its cover. I would have bypassed this book because the cover's too freakin' scary!! But you were so kind to offer it to me and since it traveled over 3,000 miles to get to me and three being one of my favorite numbers, well, I took a deep breath and avoided looking at the cover as much as possible.Wow, talk about edge of your seat thrilling! I was hooked from the beginning. My heart rate finally went down during the init [...]
I can only hope that my one star rating will help nudge this book's overall rating below a 4 because as it stands now (4.02) it is severely inflated and misleadingSo much so that initially I had no doubt in my mind that I would find some level of enjoyment in the book. My dear friends, this is the first time you have lead me astray. I'm not a book snob by any means, and typically I can find at least something enjoyable with each book I crack open, but this is by far the worst book I've read in [...]
I'm struggling writing this book review. I'm struggling with my decision to not finish the book. I wanted so badly to love this book - to even LIKE it, but it failed me. Or I failed it. I'm not sure. The book starts out with a brief and shallow discussion on the nature of evil in mankind. I think this was meant to be a foreshadowing device, but there was nothing profound in the discussion so nothing resonated or stuck with me. Right away we're thrown into some action by immediately being introdu [...]
I read this because it was recommended on The Ultimate Reading List, which I've been working through. It was listed in the "Inspirational Fiction" section (the Christian Fiction) section, but one of the fairly good things about it is it's not at all preachy even though the man-in-peril in this one, Keven Parson, is a seminary student. The bad thing though is that its basically a routine suspense/thriller with a twist--that Well, I didn't see it coming, but once it arrived I rolled my eyes, becau [...]
Wow what a roller coaster of a ride. The beginning reminded me so much of the movie speed. But that ending I still can't believe it! Great read and I will certainly try another Ted Dekker book.
my first Ted Dekker novel. I have many on my shelves, but for some reason I never have picked one up. maybe because he's a 'Christian writer'? a member of my book club highly recommended this book and she wasn't wrong. it took me longer to read, and I admit it did drag in parts, but if you like a psychological thriller that keeps you guessing, give this one a try. recommended: I would never have known he is a Christian writer.
This book is to literature is what some niche metal band is to music. If you like it, you probably are a committed Dekker fan. My reactions can be described thus: "oh dear" "did Dexter come out at the same time?" "I'm sure the author is a nice person" "um." "what do I do with this book now? There is no satisfactory answer"
If the measure of a good book is creative prose or fleshed out characters in a realistic world - this is a 3/5.If the measure of a good book is how hard it is to put down - this is a 10/5
A friend of mine introduced me to Ted Dekker ages ago where I procured The Circle, which didn’t appeal to me much. So I tried Heavens Wager and that was a great book. Thr3e was in the backseat of my car for some weird reason, probably didn’t take it out since I bought it 6 months ago, and I decided I might as well read it. I’m so glad I did.It begins with quite a philosophical question regarding the nature of man/humans/people. Is man good or evil? Does our capacity to do evil make us inhe [...]
I have a lot of pet peeves in literature, and this book hits a few:One is foreshadowing the ending by telling you exactly what it is several hundred pages before it happens. So having a character say "Wouldn't it be crazy if?!" and then telling you what happens 200 pages before the end just doesn't work for me. yes, that would have been crazy if it came out of nowhere, but it didn't books with R-rated subjects. Like if there's a dangerous psychopath on the loose with serious anger and control is [...]
