Can't Put It Down: Red by Ted Dekker

by Donna Huber

February 2006; Thorndike Press
audio, ebook, print (637 pages); suspense
The thrill, nor the confusion, lets up in the 2nd novel of The Circle Trilogy. Thomas Hunter uncovers life-threatening secrets and ever-lasting love. Somehow the two worlds are connected, if injured or killed in one world it means the end of you in the other.

My adrenaline was pumping fast by the end of Black, or so I thought. But it was nothing compared to the rush I got from Red. After finishing Black, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next one. Instead of waiting for my church's library to be open I rushed to the public library to pick up Red and couldn't put the book down. Whereas in the first one I wanted nothing more than for Thomas to stay in the other world, I found myself just as intrigued in what was happening in "our" world where bio-terrorist were plotting the release of a deadly virus.

I finished this novel in record time and I couldn't wait to pick up the next in the series with the hope that there would be explanation and closure with the final book in the trilogy. However, White was elusive as I had holds placed at my church's library, public library, and university library in hopes of getting my hands on a copy.

Are you a Ted Dekker fan? I think the Circle Trilogy is my favorite (which I will talk more about as I review White and the new book Green in the coming days). What is your favorite Dekker book?

  1. My favorite Ted Dekker is definitely Three. I have read all of the Circle books except for Green. It's on my list!

  2. You should be a book editor, found you on twitter. In a vast world of technology it is nice to find someone who likes to just open a book. Good for you!!! I just started to blog about my unpublished book. It is my biography. Although I am not a writer, as in no formal education, I do have a story to tell. Maybe you would be interested in reading me==>

  3. K.B - I enjoyed Three as well. Though it doesn't top Circle series on my list. I am loving Green.

    Suzetta - thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I will take a look at your writing. And just because you don't have formal education it doesn't mean you aren't a writer. I have met many authors at the publishing house that are wonderful writers and their only training is through everyday writing and reading.
