Up to the chapter that I stopped at it was an absolute page turner!
I'll be back with a full review once I finish.
Happy reading to all...Enjoy The Three Doors!
The tale is a classic good vs. evil tale as each group tries to stop the other. Thrown in here are demons, posession, gruesome murder, drug use, rape and implied sexual abuse of children, so the book is not perhaps for all audiences. However, you can't honestly convey a sense of the true depths of depravation, perversion and evil of the group if you can't tell the reader of their acts, so that the reader can generate their own sense of revulsion for the group. So I can understand the author's intent in including some of this content.
For the most part, the book reads quickly, with fairly short chapters. There are a couple of typos, but nothing earth shattering. I should mention that the first page is overly descriptive and florid - from the "cerulean sky", the "bellfry's carillon melody" and the "ever so jovial Reverend William Lockwood" as a few examples....I was afraid that the rest of the book would be bogged down with descriptions, but fortunately this was not the case - the rest of the book was fine, so I urge you to continue on and not be put off by the first page.
For the most part, the characters were fairly believable, although there must be some element of suspension of belief in some of the creatures and powers that are used in the story. Did it do well as a supernatural horror story? Absolutely! There were definitely a number of creepy moments in there...and I thought the interaction between Jared and his car was neat, and vaguely reminiscent of Stephen King.
The only reason that I shaved off a star is the heavy religious/Christian message/references at the end of the book. I respect the author's religious beliefs, but not everyone is as enthusiastic concerning religion.
That being said, it was still an enjoyable book and would recommend it.
The images that this book brought to my mind were very creep, to say the least. Demons are peering at you from dark and hidden places. I got could just picture it in my mind. However, the characters of Jared, Iris, Eric and the others save you from complete darkness. Their strong sense of goodness and morals saved them from true evil. They can't be corrupted. I liked that these characters are not yet adults but still have inner strength so strong that they can defeat evil.
The villains of this book are truly evil. There is no redemption for them. They pay for their complete depravity. Joe and Alex are examples of what a desire for power can do to a person. It totally corrupts and destroys the soul. There is no way that anyone can sympathize with either of them. You feel no sympathy whatsoever with their plight.
Good versus evil is such a strong theme throughout this book. Mr. Holland did an amazing job personifying such a battle with his characters. I liked how Jared experienced temptation but was able to overcome his desires in order to see what is good and not get swallowed up by true evil. His girlfriend, Iris, is a perfect match for Jared. Both are so strong in their sense of goodness and fairness. They truly want to do fight evil and do what is right.
The Three Doors is an incredible story about belief and survival. When you go to bed at night, you will not want to turn out the light nor will you want to look out your bedroom window in fear of you might see. It is definitely a book to be read with the lights on and in broad daylight. It took me awhile to read it and I blame it on its complete creepiness. This book will definitely stay with you for a long time.
