    I Was Extremely Disappointed

    Note: Possible Spoiler Alert
    I am a HUGE Ted Dekker fan, and have read dozens of books from him. This was, very easily, the worst. To begin with, it's only 100 pages, 80 of which are actually the story. I read through it in about 30 minutes. The story itself is just bizarre. It begins with an old woman named Eve, and a young, insecure girl names Marci. When Eve walks up to Marci and tells her that she is ugly, and that Eve can take her to her store and make her beautiful, Marci is angry and doubtful, but she shows up anyway. Then, Eve takes out a book, and begins reading to her about a small Serbian village. One day, 5 soldiers showed up to this village, and one of them brutalized the people-namely the priest, a young girl, Nadia, and the women. Because the villagers would not renounce Christ, the soldier killed Nadia and the priest, but at the end, the people stood up against him, and one of the soldiers escaped to tell the story of the other soldier's evil to the rest of the world. It turns out that Eve was Nadia's mother, and that Marci has a "connection" with Nadia through the story, and becomes beautiful through Christ. The characters were extremely underdeveloped, and even the Christian message was really fuzzy. I love Christian fiction, but this just didn't live up. To me, it was definitly not worth the $10, or the 30min. I will continue to read Ted Dekker, but I ddon't reccomend this particular book to you. Instead try White, Black, Red, Green, Obsessed, Three, Blink of an Eye, or one of Dekker's many other, much better choices.
