"A freak tornado drives five characters together in the little Nevada town of Summerville in this striking morality tale." (Booklist)

Couldn't make it through the book

I really enjoyed Dekker's earlier works, but his newer works have been a let-down. I couldn't even make it all the way through Skin. The dialog was just too painful. It was cheesy and unrealistic. Also, the plot (at least as far as I got) seemed to be very derivative of House, the book he wrote with Frank Peretti. Dekker needs to slow down and put more thought into his books and stop trying to put out several novels in a year.

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.
