Publisher's Summary

Who am I?
My name is Christy Snow. I'm 17 and I'm about to die. I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete. No one knows where I am. My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me.
I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking. Some will say that I'm not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don t even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave.
My name is Christy Snow. I'm 17. I'm about to die.
So who are you?
In a return to the kind of storytelling that made Black, Showdown and Three unforgettable, Ted Dekker drags that question into the light with this modern day parable about how we see ourselves. Humming with intensity and blindsided twists, Eyes Wide Open is raw adrenaline from the first page to the last pure escapism packed with inescapable truth. Not all is as it seems. Or is it? Strap yourself in for the ride of your life. Literally.

Horrendous story - makes me angry I wasted money

I kept waiting for this story to evolve. The psychological thrill just set me on edge (and not in a good way). I pushed through it hoping it was for a good reason and that the plot would become clear - it never really did. When the book FINALLY ended, it made me feel as though I just wasted time for a fantasy that was just plain stupid.

I truly love much of Ted Dekker's writing. He's given me scores of hours of listening pleasure. While this one didn't suck, it also just didn't resonate with me. I found the story to lack action and intrigue and even dialogue...mired in thoughts and observations. The general premise is interesting, but I didn't find the whole story to hold my interest (although I did slog through), although there were definitely places where it was pretty good. I wouldn't be interested in hearing more from this series...but based on his track record, I will still buy most anything Dekker releases.

Regarding the narrator, Philip Hodges has a decent voice and is a somewhat capable reader, but he's very inconsistent and sloppy. He needed a producer holding his feet to the fire to make his performance what it should have been. As it was, I found his sloppiness distracting and felt that it detracted from the story...whereas a narrator should at worst be transparent, if they are unable to enhance the story.
