I've loved Peretti's work for years, original ideas, engaging mysteries, with logic reasoned out to a strong finish. I recommend his work to anyone that loves to read and think beyond the storyline. He is a Christian author and one of the reasons I started reading his work but I strongly recommend this book for science fiction lovers! You won’t be pounded by his Faith but you will get a feel for his depth of character. The science this story takes a person on is a roller coaster for sure :)
This was the first time I listened to a book read by the author, it was such fun to feel the story and excitement knowing that it was truely the way he would have wanted it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I'm a HUGE Frank Peretti fan so when I heard this was out, first long trip this was getting listen to for sure. I was wildly disappointed and discouraged even. Has Frank spent too much time with Dekker? Me thinks so. I think girls will love this book as for me, it was painful to listen to, long and boring and the conclusion was disappointing. I thought at least if I made it to the end it would be good but he failed big time in accomplishing his "six sense" story, I had it figured out long before and the twisted craziness you can get all day long from Ted Dekker. I'm wondering where the Frank Peretti of This Present Darkness is? Where is the Christian writer writing with a mission to bring to life the Bible and Christian life with words? Where is the one that tells a great story but also leaves me hungry for God and desiring to be a bolder, more Christ like, prayer warrior...???
What could Frank Peretti have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
He needs to go back to his first 3 books and wounded spirit speech and ask why they were so huge, why they moved people so much... back to stories that reach the soul of men and women and cause them to want to rise up, want to be closer to God, stronger in their faith
What does Frank Peretti bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Did Illusion inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
Please Mr Peretti, please come back to us, get back in the Word, find whatever it was and draw close to God that you might through fiction lead us through a great story but also one that speaks to our soul, to what we know will come or is there. That causes us to want to remember who we are as Christ followers. Please!

I couldn't stop listening! It gripped me from beginning to end. I loved that the author was reading it himself. I'm off to find more of your work, Frank Peretti!

Normally I dislike authors reading their own books as there are so many excellent narrators available but Frank Peretti is an exception. He is a really good narrator and this is an unusual and entertaining novel.
