Koontz-style writer

Any additional comments?

This book is fast-paced and keeps you listening. Dekker's stories seem similar to Koontz-type stories with a more philisophical Christian focus. The writing (at least in this particular book) didn't feel quite as mature as a Koontz book. By this, I mean the characters and dialogue weren't quite as developed and felt more simple; however, the overall idea Dekker illustrated through his story felt well thought out and was intriguing. I look forward to listening to this story again now that I see the big concept Dekker explores in it.

The good and the bad

I hard a hard time getting into the story. The first half felt drawn out, which made it hard to comit to finishing. But, I paid for this book and I'm gonna see it through. Half way through, the story, pace, and tone shift. It felt like a different book. More engaging and evenly paced. The performance of the Audio book was good. He did an excellent job differentiating voices of characters, but felt unexpressive at times.

So push through the first half, and you'll be rewarded with a good mystery story the second half. Perhaps a Ying and Yang, good and evil framework...
