Co-authored by the masters of "Christian suspense", "House" is the story of four couples stranded in the backwoods of Alabama, fighting an evil killer demanding violence and death from their group, and a house which seems to prey on their worst, inner fears. Very suspenseful and demented, but with a positive message about hope and survival in the midst of trial and tribulation. Powerful analogies to the sacrifice of Christ, too, although nothing explicitly Christian in nature is ever mentioned. Do read this book if you're the least bit interested!
This book was a 6 out of 10. It was a quick, easy read. The plot was a bit bizarre, definately creepy, and completely outside the realm of reality. I thought it was kind of predictable... I could see where each twist was going before it went.
All in all, it was entertaining. I like Christian fiction that is a bit meatier on creative communication of truth. This book read more like a mild horror novel where Jesus shows up at the end.
I really like Peretti and Dekker. I was expecting more.
Like all books by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker, this one was a page turner. The chapters were fairly short, which I liked. I finished the book in under 2 days. However, it was not as good as "Prophet" or some of the others. The plot was really good, but I thought they could've done alot better with some aspects of it, and perhaps not made it so disjointed. Still, I can't say that my time was wasted. I'm looking forward to reading more by these authors.
This book was okay. It pulls you in to continue reading it, but there are much better books in this genre. Plus, the writing style is a little strange.
I kept reading wanting to find out the "why" of the whole story. In the end, I was disappointed. Yeah, it was supposed to be about good vs. evil and the wages of sin, and blah blah blah, but it felt so full of holes. This was my first Peretti or Dekker. I was not impressed.
