Eyes Wide Open by Ted Dekker

Eyes Wide Open

by Ted Dekker

A Novel

My name is Christy Snow.  I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.  I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete.  No one knows where I am.  My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me.  I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet.  My hands and feet won't stop shaking.  Some will say that I'm not really here.  Some will say I'm delusional.  Some will say that I don't even exist.  But who are they?  I'm the one buried in a grave.  My name is Christy Snow.  I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.

First in the newest series from Ted Dekker, a master of suspense, whose books have sold 9 million copies, Eyes Wide Open is a raw adrenaline rush from the first page to the last.

I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book to review.  I have to say it was a page turner.  I couldn't put it down.  I read the entire book in one weekend.  I loved it.  I haven't read Ted Dekker's work before but I am now a huge fan of his writing.  The book is excellent.  I hate predictable stories and this one is super suspenseful and never predictable.
