If you're the kind of person who enjoys the thrill of rollercoaster action, mindboggling mind games and fantastical plot twists, disdaining all regard to reason, you might find a bosom buddy in Ted Dekker. Thr3e is like Fight Club on steroids with a besprinkling of the Sixth Sense, with a curiously oddball spiritual message jammed into the mishmash like a pube in a toilet bowl. The plot might be a bit melodramatic and the dialogue a bit childish and prissy, but behind all the pyromaniacal hullabaloo, the moral significance rings true. What I found most interesting was the way Dekker changed the formula to introduce a mentally ill character with the magical power of animating his individual personalities in the flesh, with a sort of play on magical realism. An impressive read overall. Kevin reminds me of my own craziness sometimes with his talks with himself, but at least I'm not blowing up buses and libraries.… (mere)

This is a difficult book to review because I have so many mixed feelings about it. So to make it a little more understandable, here is a list of everything I noticed.
-Unique Plot, I have not read any book similar to this at all and I did like the imagery
-Drew me in but didn't hook me, sounds like an oxymoron, right? Well, I wanted to keep reading this but it didn't draw me in emotionally.
-Two-Dimensional Characters, maybe it was just because these characters were experiencing so many different things that what happens in normal, everyday life, but I could not connect to them at all.
To sum everything up, this was the first book I have read by either Dekker and I'm not sure if I will be reading more because this one was a bit of a letdown.

*I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the author. All thoughts are my own and a positive review was in no way required.
