Green by Ted Dekker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Finally finished this one! (Not that it's boring, I read it in spanish and that takes a little longer...). Love this series, but I have to say i was confused really by the end of this book. I was hoping for a final that left you satisfied, but this wasn't it. I guess that's what you get when it says the "beginning and the end". I don't know if I missed something due to the spanish (i am a fairly fluent spanish speaker) but I just don't understand the ending at all (I don't want to spoil it for you so that's all I'll say). I also was a little confused at the lack of emotion/discussion of the daughter of one of the main character's turning out to be the a priestess of the devil. Good story line, and more of the good and evil personified of the series, but the ending really ruined it for me... This book in the series (I believe it's said by the author that you can read it either at the beginning or end of the series- I read it as the 4th book) eventually gives the explanation of how Thomas ends up in the situation he ends up in, but really is the story of the apocolypse and the end days. I love Ted Dekker's books but... hmmm. Maybe I'll have to re-read in English and see if it makes more sense. Definitely would still recommend this one, just be prepared that it might be unsettling at the end!
I would definitely love to hear any comments you have if you've read the book. should i re-read in english or is this just the way this book is?
Also, Another reviewer on goodreads.com suggested reading the circle trilogy, then the one with showdown, and sinner before reading Green as he was very confused. I had read them so wasn't as much, and would recommend the same if you've not read any of the series. Good luck and happy reading!
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze®.
