FROM THE BACK COVER:

Who am I?

My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.

I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete. No one knows where I am. My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me. I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking.

Some will say that I m not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don t even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave.

My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen. I'm about to die.

So who are you?

In a return to the kind of storytelling that made Black, Showdown and Three unforgettable, Ted Dekker drags that question into the light with this modern day parable about how we see ourselves.

Humming with intensity and blindsided twists, Eyes Wide Open is raw adrenaline from the first page to the last pure escapism packed with inescapable truth. Not all is as it seems. Or is it? Strap yourself in for the ride of your life. Literally. (Young Adult)

    Great book, Ted delivers as usual.  side note: Amazon already has the next book in the series, Mirrors.  Get on the ball Barnes and Noble!  My nook is 2 years old and i'm thinking of upgrading.  Don't give me a reason to go to Kindle!

    Good to have him back.

    After reading, what, twelve of his books already, I have to say that that's exactly the kind of story-telling quality I've come to expect from Mr. Dekker. That was one of the most painful cliffhangers I've ever experienced. Whoo!! Who's up for Round 2?

    Boo.

    Not entirely honest about what kind of book it is. Could have been an amazing story, but the author doesnt follow through. Disappointing and ridiculous. Zero stars.

    You can get this book for free

    On Amazon you can get this for free. I would say this book is or teens but other than that it was pretty good. It kind of leaves you hanging.

    First of all, this isn't my kind of book, and I will admit after

    First of all, this isn't my kind of book, and I will admit after finishing it, I literally did have a headache. This book constantly made me think, and I usually like that, but not when its this confusing. I understood that Christy based her identity around the locket she lost, but I can never imagine going through all of that trouble just to find it, especially considering it only cost $20 and was from Target. I found that unbelievable.

    The plot is different and not typical. I've watched movies like this, but I haven't read books like this. The book is short, but it doesn't feel that way. I can identify with Christy's insecurities, and I like that the story is in both Christy and Austin's point of view.

    If you like psychological thrillers and books with twisted plots that leave you constantly guessing and wondering, then you should definitely read this. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Plot: I found the plot of this book to be very entertaining and thought provoking. I find the notion of this predicament to be highly enticing. In a way, we can all relate on some level with the situation that Christy finds herself in.

    Characters: You know absolutely nothing about the characters in this book, but it is completely imperative to the story that you don't. It adds to the intrigue of the plot and keeps you on the edge.

    Themes: As the title itself lends to, the theme of this book is identity. Who are the characters of this book? Who are we all? Sometimes, even if we think we know everything about ourselves, situations and circumstances will force us to really examine if we know who we are at all.

    Emotion: As you read, you can feel the panic, fear, and confusion that Christy feels. Since this book is so short, it's not enough to leave you wondering, but it's enough to keep you engaged and connected with the characters.

    Overall: This is a nice short read. One that, if desired, you could easily continue on with the series, or let yourself have time to mull over what happened before continuing on. It was a very fast paced book and while it wasn't over involved and the plot was simple, it was an excellent read that keeps you thinking.

    Cant put it down!

    Wow this was a great story that sucks you in right away. I have no clue how anyone could not like it. Whoever said they felt tricked needs to realize cliff hangers are a very impotant literary device authors use to get readers to keep reading. You were tricked as much as you where when you bought any sequel to any book
