Review: Eyes Wide Open by Ted Dekker

Eyes Wide Open by Ted Dekker
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:

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 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.

My thoughts:

Wow! Loved Identity! Such an interesting story with two great main characters. The ending was fantastic and I can hardly wait to read the next part, Mirrors!

My thoughts:

After finishing Identity (part one) I could hardly wait to read Mirrors! What a crazy ride (pun not intended)! I have no idea what is really going on and now want to read part three, Unseen, asap. Great read!

My thoughts:

Sooooo good! Just as crazy a book as the first two! No idea what is really happening to Christy and Austin! What a great read! Unseen's ending is a cliff-hanger. Can't wait to read part four and finally know what is going on! :)

My thoughts:

Seer was a really good read! I was a little disappointed with/didn't like a few things that happened in the book, but it was still a great read. The ending was not what I was expecting and I liked being kept on my toes. It was also nice how Ted Dekker tied this book's story to some of his other books - I love how he does that! Makes me want to go back and reread them. :) A really good book and I look forward to reading more of Ted Dekker's novels in the future.
