Green by Ted Dekker

Just a side note about my review.  Please know that this is my opinon only and I realize some people like these books.  Thanks for taking the time to check this out.

For my book review this time I selected a book by Ted Deker entitle Green. The whole premise of this book is that you can read it either as the first in the series or the last. The series in which this book belongs is called The Circle and the other books in it are black, red and white. A few teens in our church know how much I like to read and suggested this author. I have never read anything else by him and quite frankly probably never will. The book takes the settings of present and future. That concept I can handle but the rest of the book is just odd. Maybe my mind couldn’t take go on the journey the author was hoping for but I was lost and quite frankly bored. The story was unbelievable and the sensuality in the book is nothing that I would want my 13 yr old to read. The main character of the book in present times is Thomas Hunter but he gets swept back into the future and wakes up in the Black Forest. I see the analogy the used used in the colors black representing bad and green representing good but that is the only thing I understood or even enjoyed. I am thinking that this is one circle that should not have been reborn.

Till Next Time~
