This is my first time reading Ted Dekker and this is a great mystery. It took turns in the story that do not follow the normal path for murder mysteries. I have recommended to several friends and they all enjoyed this book. The author takes the time to go through the story and all the characters - making the ending great and unpredictable. It is not for all readers and does not hold any punches going through the story.

Thank you Ted Dekker.

Interesting but far out

I enjoyed the premiss but then became somewhat disenchanted near the end when the super natural began to happen. More into down-to-earth and realistic than sci-fi content. Up to that point I thought it was well worth the expenditure and the author certainly knows how ...
I enjoyed the premiss but then became somewhat disenchanted near the end when the super natural began to happen. More into down-to-earth and realistic than sci-fi content. Up to that point I thought it was well worth the expenditure and the author certainly knows how to grab the readers attention. Kind of the point I guess.

    Not worth the effort

    This book sat on the shelf for months just because the cover creeped me out. I finally read it. It was not very good. The story of FBI agent Daniel who is stalking the (male) killer named Eve who gives girls some kind of agent that is similar to meningitis. First chapter: enter the good looking FBI pathologist paired with Heather, Daniel's ex wife who still loves him. Thus, in cookie cutter style, you know the pathologist will somehow be tied to the killer. This book was a mess, Eve = Adam = Satan = Alice? 90% of the book was about a serial killer and then it turns into a dance with Satan? After reading this I realized I read Skin by the same author which I didn't like either.

    Adam by Ted Dekker

    I picked this book up because I am a mystery lover and the description of the book on the jacket was compelling. However, three or four pages into the book, I was howling with laughter and sharing one poorly constructed sentence after another with my equally amused husband. I am amazed that this is a best-selling author: the writing is clunky and poorly executed and on almost every page there are at least four or five sentence fragments. I spent my entire time not so subconsciously editing as I moved through this riduculous book with it's silly characters and as silly plot. Can't the publisher afford a decent editor? Of course, it's probably not in the budget to completely re-write the book...

    Pure crap

    Formulaic, self-indulgent, pointless, predictable. A waste of time.

    godly thriller

    Like house he follows a theme of a nice build up but at the end it has a very spiritual tone. i believe this is probably his writing style.
