Publisher's Summary

Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real. Slowly he realizes that each reality dramatically impacts the other. In each world unspeakable evil is unleashed and millions of lives hang in the balance. The fate of two worlds depends on the actions of one man: Thomas Hunter.

Narrator speaks at double speed without pauses…

Would you try another book from Ted Dekker and/or Rob Lamont?


What was one of the most memorable moments of Black?

Still trying to get through the story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Rob Lamont’s performances?

Doubtful. The narrator read clearly enough, but did not pause at all between sentences with various characters talking. Conversations sound like one big run--on-sentance that is difficult to tell who is talking. This is so frustrating, that I find it hard to believe the book was produced this way at all.

This is perhaps the 30th or so audio book I have listened to from Audible, and I never imagined this style of reading was out there. I will have to listen to the previews for every book now just to make sure I don't get another poor reader like this again.

writing made this a slog

Story is interesting enough but the writing is pretty amateurish and makes it hard to truly engage with the subject matter.

the religious bent of the story is about as subtle as a sidewalk preacher and I found myself rolling my eyes a few time.

book still had some profound moments and was well narrated
