Ted Dekker marathon

After being immersed in books from the list, I took a break and read some Ted Dekker.

Having read the first in The Circle trilogy (Black) last year, I was eager to complete the trilogy. The timing was also good since I knew I’d be traveling, and would enjoy some light fare.

I enjoyed Red and White (categorized as science fiction and fantasy by Amazon and as suspense on the back cover), but I wasn’t terribly engrossed in them like I expected to be. Fun reads, but not impressive on a deeper level, or something. I do like the story, though. The first book, which I read last year, I think I finished in a day or so. These volumes I was able to walk away from. Still worthwhile reads, and they did serve the purpose I set for them, a relatively breezy break from heavier tomes.

I also read Dekker’s Thr3e.

This book and its premise was intriguing. It was made into a 2006 movie, but I haven’t seen the film. I was interested in how it addressed mental health (or illness). This book had a small tinge of sadness that I wasn’t expecting. Again, it was an enjoyable read, though; not too sad.

  2. Yeah, I’ve only read the Circle trilogy and Three. I’ve heard really good things about a couple other of his books, but I can’t remember which titles they were. Of what I read, I did really enjoy Black.

  3. His Blink is also very good.

  5. I’ve read the Circle Trilogy and nearly all of Dekker’s other titles, and must say that every one has been incredibly hard to put down….
