The Bride Collector is an edge-of-your-chair thriller. It never lets up. In addition to that, Dekker's characterization is amazing. Not only do we see into the mind of a serial killer, but we also see a wide variety of other personalities, what they are like inside, and a little of how they got that way.
The usual Dekker good vs. evil is there, but it is both an external battle and an internal struggle. Each person is both good and evil: human. He presents that internal dichotomy in a very matter-of-fact way, without judgment, even of the serial killer. The characters represent good and evil in the external battle, but are themselves neither perfectly good nor perfectly evil. This allows us to identify with all of them in one way or another, including the killer. He is deceived, but not all his beliefs are lies. In his mind, he is trying to deal with evil and move toward good, as are all the characters. Seeing how each is deceived can help us see our own deceptions.

I couldn't find out how to review the book either so I guess I will put it here as well : What is insanity? Who says I am more important than someone labeled as insane. What does that mean anyway? Those are some important questions I felt were raised by this book. It was one of Ted's more gruesome books, but it was still a great read in fact there were many points in this book that kept me so hooked to it that I did not want to even answer the phone! I do not think it is for all though, as it is very violent. I do not want to give up much of the plot but I will say this, if you have read his other books you will love this though the young, beautiful woman glued to walls and having their blood drained almost made me not read this. I think it would be a mistake not to as like his other books, it has a very important lesson. Never judge a book by its cover.

You couldn't review the book because Amazon doesn't let non "Vine" members review books that aren't released yet. You should be able to review it now.
