Publisher's Summary

The story of how I, Julian Carter, and my precious two-year old son, Stephen, left Atlanta Georgia and found ourselves on a white sailboat, tossed about like a cork on a raging sea off of Australia's northern tip in 1963, is harrowing.
But it pales in comparison to what happened deep in the jungle where I was taken as a slave by a savage tribe unknown to the world. Some places dwell in darkness so deep that even God seems to stay away.
There, my mind was torn in two by the gods of the earth. There, one life ended so another could begin. Some will say I was a fool for making the choices I made. But they would have done the same. They, too, would have embraced death if they knew what I knew, and saw through my eyes.

More Than A Great Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Outlaw to be better than the print version?

This is the type of story that draws you into the scenes. Hearing it as an audio book was like being a part of the action.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Outlaw?

I was on that island with that tribe learning about myself just as much as the characters were. This was truly a journey of self-discovery.

Any additional comments?

I really love Ted Dekker and I enjoyed this book for the most part. It was a simple book well written. But, I felt there were a few holes in the book. We begin with a wonderful love story of self sacrifice and survival, and are taken to an intense slow build up to what seems like a very exciting climax. Then we are veered off to the right 18 years later. It felt like there was a whole section missing and some of my favorite characters were never heard from again or just mentioned briefly. I feel like I was left swaying in the middle a bit. I can honestly say I predicted the ending it kind of had the same feel that Green had for me. I don't know what I was expecting because I loved the spiritual context and the writing but it all felt a little rushed, what was a 10 hour audio book read slowly and deliberately by Nicole Barber would have been about an three hour read for myself . I am a huge audio book listener and I normally buy the hard back also, so I can take it with me wherever I might go until I'm finished. Ms.Barber is a fine reader but I just didn't like her style on this book- A Georgia southern belle with an English accent- just didn't work for me. In saying all of this I love the way Ted Dekker thinks this is why I love his writing, but this is just my two cents worth on Outlaw.
