Book Review: Three
This weekend I tried to read some Christian fiction. Okay, I finished it, but I wasn't happy. I read Three by Ted Dekker. I'd heard a lot of good stuff about Mr. Dekker. I was disappointed. The plot was decent enough, but the writing was utilitarian, characters were fairly one-dimensional and there was no sense of pacing, expect to pause and theologize for a couple of pages. So I'm retreating back into the world of good fiction. Right now I'm reading Wicked by Gregory Maguire (yes, I've gotten caught up in the hype of the musical). Someone's going to have to do quite a bit of convincing to get me to try another book of Christian fiction.
