Book Review – Identity by Ted Dekker

Identity (Eyes Wide Open, #1)Identity by Ted Dekker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This book sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go. Identity started with a killer hook. The protagonist is trapped underground with no way out. Death is inevitable. Things go downhill from there.

This novella is the pilot episode in a series of four that will make up a ‘season’. Ted Dekker has drawn on his favourite TV dramas to create a thrilling episodic story.

The set of circumstances that lead the the two main characters ending up in a world of trouble are unlikely yet completely believable. In lesser hands the implementation might not have worked by Dekker shows clearly with this book why he is one of the best.

This is a short snappy read that gets the adrenaline pumping. The characters are developed deeply and quickly so that you really feel or them when the unthinkable happens.

Identity is must-read fiction.
