More About Ted Dekker
Ted Dekker (born October 24, 1962) is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty novels. He is best known for stories which could be broadly described as suspense thrillers with major twists and unforgettable characters, though he has also made a name for himself among fantasy fans.
Dekker was born to missionaries who lived among the headhunter tribes of Indonesia. Because his parents’ work often included extended periods of time away from their children, Dekker describes his early life in a culture to which he was a stranger as both fascinating and lonely. It is this unique upbringing that forced him to rely on his own imagination to create a world in which he belonged.
After leaving Indonesia, Dekker graduated from a multi-cultural high school and took up permanent residence in the United States to study Philosophy and Religion. Upon earning his Bachelor’s Degree, he entered the corporate world and proceeded to climb the proverbial ladder. But his personal drive left him restless and, after many successful years, he traded corporate life for wide range of entrepreneurial pursuits that included buying and selling businesses, healthcare services, and marketing.
In the early nineties while visiting a friend who had just written a book, Dekker decided to pursue a long held desire to be a novelist. Over the course of two years he wrote two full length novels before starting from scratch and rewriting both. Now fully enamored by the the process and the stories, he realized that storytelling was in his blood and a new obsession to explore truth through story gripped him anew.
He sold his business, moved his family to the mountains of Western Colorado and began writing full-time on his third novel. Two years and three novels later his first novel was published.
Dekker’s novels have sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Two of his novels, Thr3e and House, have been made into movies with more in production. Dekker resides in Austin, Texas with his wife Lee Ann and two of their daughters.

I checked this book out from the library in hopes that it would live up to my expectations of a horror/thriller book because I am a hardcore horror/thriller fanatic. However, the beginning was so boring my brain felt like it was caving in. All I can say is that after three boring uneventful chapters, i couldn't go on reading it. Save yourself the time and read something else.
Incredible! May 26, 2008
You will love this! You will have to tell yourself, " It's only a book, it's only a book!"
House May 22, 2008
Excellent read. Don't read it in a storm though. I don't remember ever reading a suspense novel that I had to put down. This one I did. I enjoyed this book.
What I Thought May 18, 2008

Great Christian Horror and Suspense May 17, 2008
I didn't think it was possible to create a Christian horror/suspense book until I read House. This was very well done. I was on my toes the entire time, waiting for the next turn around the hall to see if something unexpected (and otherworldly) would show up. I became a fan of both authors when I was done with it. Yes, there is an excellent moral underneath the action. Sin needs to be removed by the redeeming work of Jesus Christ on the cross. This was very well done through the analogy of Susan. No, I didn't take it that Susan was supposed to be Christ but she is a good representation of Him.
I love suspense and I love to get spooked once in awhile. This book did that for me and it's a great relief to see interesting Christian books out there for a change. I can't wait for the movie version of this book to come out!
