I really liked this book. The main characters are likeable and the pace is fast enough to keep you turning pages, but not so fast that you get left behind! I believe anyone interested in the spiritual aspects of the book will be well pleased. Seth and Miriam both progress spiritually throughout the story even though it remains a conflict between them through most of it. The story of the Saudi princess trying to escape the bondage placed on women by her faith and her country is a pleasing one and you will find yourself rooting for her from the beginning! Great story and well worth the read! You won't want to put it down so it should be a quick read, but pleasing!
Up all night with this one, I was actually holding my eyes open with my fingers to see what was going to happen next!
Seth Borders isn't your average graduate student. For starters hehas one of the world's highest IQs. Now he's suddenly struck by an incredible power - the ability to see multiple potential futures.
Still reeling from this inexplicable gift, Seth stumbles upon a beautiful woman named Miriam. Unknown to Seth, Miriam is a Saudi Arabian Princess who has fled her veild existence to escape a forced marriage of unimmaginable consequences. Cultures collide as they're thrown together and forced from an unstoppable force determined to kidnap or kill Miriam.
Ted Dekker not only has a great imagination he has a great understanding of the Arab world and their culture and creates a very true and real tale that will leave you hanging on the edge of your seat!
Unlike any book I've ever read. Action packed!
This is the first Ted Dekker book that I have read. WOW! Loved the storyline, loved the character development, etc. Gives one insight into the life of women in Saudia Arabia. Makes me very thankful to live in the United States.
Ted Dekker's books are always page-turners, and this is no different. Seth, an exceptionally brilliant young man, starts experiencing precognition events, one of which warns him that a young Arab woman in a bathroom will be attacked by a man. Rushing to that bathroom, he saves her, and that begins a wild journey of evading her enemies. Called into question during this journey is God's very existence, based on whether or not there is only one possible future or many, depending on the choices people make. Seth eventually loses his power of precognition and has nowhere to turn but prayer. A fascinating book peopled with vivid characters involved in a world-changing plot.
Oh my goodness, this book is good! This is the first book by Dekker that I have read, and I found it very hard to put down. I made the mistake of swapping my copy on this site a while ago, so I have now gone and requested it from someone else so I can read it again! I don't usually reread fiction books, but it has been about a year since I read this one, and I was really wishing I hadn't swapped my copy. Go ahead and request this book, but I don't think I'll turn loose of my copy again any time soon!
This is Ted Dekker at his best. He kept my interest all the way through even if it is a little different story line than I usually read.
I really enjoyed this book. It is fast-paced and has a good plot. Maybe not super realistic but a great story!
Fairly good, though a bit preachy at times. If you like Dekker, then this should be a good read.
Ted Dekker weaves an impossible tale and somehow makes it seem possible!
Ted Dekker is not my type of writer, but his books keep drawing me in. They are great Christian mysteries. You'll never guess the ending.
Seth Borders has a world-high IQ. Then he gains an incredible power-the ability to see multiple potential futures. He uses this gift to save a beautiful Saudi Arabian princess...and himself.
The future changes in the blink of an eye...or does it?
Some more Christian fiction from a friend. Here's the synopsis: An intoxicating tale set amidst the shifting sands of the Middle East, Blink touches on geopolitical conflicts as ancient as the earth itself. The page-turning plot follows a Saudi Arabian princess fleeing a wretched forced marriage for the promised land of America. A brilliant American graduate student discovers a mysterious power-giving him glimpses into the future. Thrown together, they become pawns in a struggle for power and must manipulate the very future in order to save themselves. In his most riveting novel to date, Dekker brings the story to a dramatic climax that will change the future of fiction in the blink of an eye. Ted Dekker is Christian fiction's hottest author, with applause increasing from fans and reviewers alike with each new release.
Excellent Christian thriller. I couldn't put it down.
Don't blink while you read this one - concentrate.
Good story, interesting plot.
Amazing story. Wowed by it. My first of Ted Dekker and definately not my last.
This was a great book! Ted Dekker did it again! I found it difficult to get into at first, but once you get past the 2nd chapter, you are HOOKED!! You have to love a "Happy Ever After" type ending!
Edge-of-your-seat suspense. Very good!
This was the first book I've read of his, and I loved it! Very good!
A lot of action in this story that really keeps you wanting to read without stopping till you've reached the end! Really do enjoy most of Ted Dekker's books and this one doesn't disappoint!
