    Three by Ted Dekker (atdCross)
    atdCross: For me, 'Three' is the best of all Dekker's books. It is very, very fast-paced, definite page-turner, unique plot, and a twisted ending that just blew my mind away!

very interesting indeed. I love it. Thumbs up Ted ( )

Un libro che si lascia leggere, senza infamia e senza lode. Piuttosto piatto, per essere un libro d'azione/thriller. La trama è piuttosto scontata e di colpi di scena se ne vedono davvero molto pochi.

Sinceramente mi aspettavo qualcosa di meglio da questo autore visto la fama che ha in America.

In alcuni punti è perfino illogico! Come se fosse possibile che il padre si lasciasse abbiandolare per anni... ANNI... per poi, improvvisamente, riprendersi.

I personaggi sono ben costruiti ma, per quanto mi riguarda non affascinano il lettore, nè positivamente nè negativamente. La stessa Shauna non si lascia amare, nè odiare... semplicemente la seguiamo, piuttosto passivi.

Lo stile di Dekker è buono, non posso dire il contrario ma manca di passione e di suspance. Per un thriller è essenziale!

In ultimo, ma non per questo meno importante, in molti punti mi sono ritrovata a fare dei paragoni con altre opere come The Giver oppure altri film che ho visto in passato. Non voglio assolutamente dire che sia un bel bricolage di altre opere ma semplicemente che la sensazione di "già visto" è forte per tutta la durata del romanzo e questo, sicuramente, non è un bene.

Peccato, una buona idea sviluppata male.

Kiss is the story of Shauna McAllister, who is the daughter of a very influential, presidential candidate. The book starts with Shauna in a hospital in a coma after a horrible car accident. As she starts to awaken from the coma, she realizes that she has lost about 6 months worth of memories. Throughout her recovery, she is constantly trying to figure out what is truth, what is a lie, and whom she can believe. Shauna also discovers she has very unusual powers of the mind, being able to take memories from those whom she connects with.

This is one of Ted Dekker's best books as a single. It captures your attention immediately and carries you along with the tension for the whole read. Some very interesting and unexpected twists are involved. ( )

The victim of a drug-induced amnesia begins to display side effects of being able to 'steal' memories from others, simply by touching them. What will she learn? Is this a gift or a curse?

As much as I can remember, most (if not all) of Ted Dekker's protagonists are male, while this one is female, and a very well-fleshed out one, too -- perhaps because it's co-authored with Erin Healy. In that light, I'm looking forward to reading the subsequent (but not linked) co-authored novel titled, 'Burn'. ( )

A good book but a bit mass market for a Ted Dekker book. ( )
