This episode was intense and if there was a line between a tiny bit scared and really intrigued I’d have one foot on each side. For whatever reason, I was expecting to read a book about Christy Snow, who is going to find herself and somehow the locket on the front cover is tied into that journey. Instead, I read an episode about Christy Snow getting trapped in a hair-raising predicament with a dangerous enemy that’s a bit unrealistic.
This is the first thriller book I’ve ever read (by accident) and it was good. The writing was great, little to no mistakes, with description that made the situations become vivid. However I had a few issues with it (three omitted for spoiler purposes).
Christy finds “ten pounds” to be fat. While I do understand that girls struggle with accepting their weight, ten pounds? I’m not sure why Dekker decided to slip that in there, but I wish it was explained a little more.
Does Dekker understand how psychiatric wards work? Because I don’t. But, I do know this, unless everyone in the psychiatric ward is in on this scheme, the way they go about confirming patients is inefficient and ridiculous in this day and age (assuming it’s this day and age).
There isn’t much to say about it since it’s only about six chapters long, but just to add, on Goodreads this series is tagged as Christian fiction. I’m not sure how he’ll tie Christianity into it, but I hope Dekker won’t mess it up. I would recommend this episode, it will take you about twenty minutes or so to read (depending on if you’re multitasking).
Christy and Austin each have tumultuous pasts, beginning with forgotten beginnings. But that is what caused them to be close to begin with--neither could remember what happened to them, what caused them to be like they were. As teenagers living on their own they both have become well adjusted, well- as well adjusted as you can be without knowing a large portion of you life.
Christy has a locket with the photo that came with it that acts as a reminder that one day she will find the family that she cannot remember. Austin fills his head with knowledge, simply because he can.
After having lost her locket in the day before Christy returns to the hospital storage room that Austin enjoys exploring with the hopes that she will find her lost treasure. Instead Christy finds herself trapped, down a hole in the floor. After reaching out to Austin through her dying cellphone she continues to try to find her way out of the lower basement floor. Instead of finding her freedom she walks into another trap--one that isn't going to be easily escaped from and to make matters worse her call brought Austin along as well.
Something dark is happening below the hospital. Something suspicious... something evil?
Trapped, alone and in complete darkness – what could she do? But worse was to come…
Identity by Ted Dekker is #1 in a four part series of novellas with the complete set titled Eyes Wide Open. Heart stoppingly tense and fast paced, the adrenalin raced as I made my way to the end of this short story. An interesting and intriguing plot, Identity is worth recommending.
Identity, part 1 of a 4 part series, sets the stage for two characters who are suddenly faced with the dilemma of mistaken identity. This premise is very Hitchcockian in terms of the psychological harm that is done to these 2 young people to convince them they are not who they think they are.
In order not to reveal any spoilers, I won't divulge too many details into the story. The characters, Christy Snow and Austin Hartt are two young, smart individuals who are brought together by their unfortunate past. Christy, who is very self-conscious and desperate to understand her past, has a strong attachment to a locket that contains only the sample picture that came with it. She has no family that she can remember. When she realizes the locket is missing, Christy sets out to retrace her steps to find it only to put herself in a very difficult situation. She and her friend Austin, who also has no memory of his past but is brilliant to a fault, end up in St Matthews hospital as patients in their psych ward. The rest of the series will continue their journey as they discover the secrets of St. Matthew Hospital and the secrets of their past.
Ted Dekker has once again proved to be the King of creating a series that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire ride. Identity is fast-paced and addictive. I read the story in one sitting and quickly purchased the next book, Mirrors, to pick up where Identity leaves off. Bravo to Dekker's promotional team as well for how they have presented this series. Offering the first book at a deep discount is sure to attract many NEW fans as well as Dekker veterans.
