First of all if you are a Ted Dekker fan… READ THIS BOOK. Yes it is that good. I am so amazed that one man can do this with a series that he started over 5 years ago. I also have to confess that at first I was a bit disappointed that he was going to write another book for a series that he said ended 4 years ago. I hate when authors do that. Well I was wrong, this one so needed to be written and if you haven’t read the Circle trilogy, the Paradise books or the Lost Books, you may want to do that first, but you don’t have to. I will explain that later.
Ok now the review of Green… sort of. This is one of those reviews that is a bit delicate to write. I am afraid that with anything I say I may give the entire book away and I really don’t want to do that as the best part of the book is not knowing what is happening.
I can safely say that all our favorite characters are back in all their glory. There are some new and exciting ones which makes this even better yet. Thomas Hunter is the one who got this all started by crash landing in the black forest and he is once again completely in the center of it all.
This is listed as book ‘zero’ of the Circle Trilogy, and it fits. It didn’t make sense to me until I read it so you are going to have to trust me on that part of it. 🙂 But the subtitle “the beginning and the end” is completely correct. Do you feel like I am talking in circles yet? lol. (This is why you don’t really have to read any of the other books first) I really feel that if Ted wasn’t a writer than he would have serious mental problems and at least 7 personalities. 🙂
Ted won me as a fan with his books Black and Three and this year he reminded my why with his books Boneman’s Daughters and now Green.
