FROM THE BACK COVER:
Who am I?
My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.
I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete. No one knows where I am. My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me. I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking.
Some will say that I m not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don t even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave.
My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen. I'm about to die.
So who are you?
In a return to the kind of storytelling that made Black, Showdown and Three unforgettable, Ted Dekker drags that question into the light with this modern day parable about how we see ourselves.
Humming with intensity and blindsided twists, Eyes Wide Open is raw adrenaline from the first page to the last pure escapism packed with inescapable truth. Not all is as it seems. Or is it? Strap yourself in for the ride of your life. Literally.
Identity (Ted Dekker) Book Reviews
IdentityIt was just ok for me..Cgm5251949Score: 2/5
ShortWell written, captivating in a suspenseful way but too short..Russell0214Score: 4/5
IdentityI could not put it down. It left me wanting more. However... It leaves you in the middle of the story only to find you have to buy the rest to finish story. So bummed.. Now perhaps the library.Cher ElliganceScore: 5/5
IntenseTed Dekker has done an amazing job of introducing you to his characters. Immediately you can’t help but to root for them. Getting locked in a mental institution is everyone’s worst nightmare. From the cover art to the crazy descriptions “My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight towards me” this is an amazing start to what looks like a promising book. Identity is the 1st of 4 novella’s making up the book “Eyes Wide Open” While Novella’s are not for everyone these are priced to be equivalent to the cost of a book. Identity was free while Mirrors, Unseen and Seer are $2.99 each. However the entire book could be purchase at one time as opposed to the smaller novellas if preferable..Non/nonScore: 4/5

Bummer....don't botherFirst book was good, and I was looking forward to the second. It's was okay. The third and forth books in the series were sooooo disappointing. I kept hoping they would get better. Unfortunately, never happened. There is NO reason to break this story up into four separate books..Aisan pickleScore: 1/5

People please!!!I really wish people would stop rating a book by what it cost!!! It messes with the review ratings. If you don't like the price of a book, fine you can put it in the comments in your review but don't rate it based on your problems with the cost of the book!!!.MissyMay763890Score: 5/5

It's okThis story has potential but what is missing is inertia. It just plods along when it could be and needs to be compelling. Not every writer is endowed with the intuitive gift for suspense. Stephen King has it in truckloads. This writer is close but just lacks that magic..EarbuddudeScore: 3/5
This book is stupidSo contrived it is ridiculous..GregVMScore: 1/5
AmazingFor a short read its a gripping story. I'm not usually fond of these kinds of stories though this one I could not stop reading. If you Really pay attention then the end will through you for a loop while making you think about what you just read. Great introduction to the trilogy.IDanScore: 5/5
Eyes wide openWhat a bummer that you have to pay for four books. Started out great but not worth that kind of money..+can+Score: 1/5
Yes!!I’ve been listening to this all day while I was working, I’m a truck driver and this is definitely something I kept my mind off of what I was doing. I can’t wait to talk to me the other ones, it’s chilling, thrilling, and suspenseful. This is my type of reading, and I definitely give this read a thumbs up..MagicdwightScore: 5/5
Typical DekkerThis is an amazing book. I love his books because they make you think and they are so action packed. I just finished Identity and I must keep going. I would recommend this book to anyone. This is my favorite author, be sure to check him out..Disapointment3549Score: 5/5
Awesome story, terrible price!I didn't think I would like this first book when I started reading it. I was quite surprised. It left me wanting more in the series....BUT....at 2.99 a pop I seriously doubt I will finish it. What a let down. Very disappointing! I'm not going to pay three dollars for every eighty pages, that's ridiculous!.PookalouScore: 1/5

I hate reading BUT..I haven't ever liked reading but I've been so bored this Summer that I decided to download a few iBooks and this was one. I don't read the intro or the back summary of the book. I just look at the cover. I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover but I kind of have to. If a book that can keep me locked in when I literally know nothing about the story line then it's a great book worth finishing. First book I choose to read threw me for a complete loop (started good but then I was like, "Uhm, wow, no.") so I moved to this one and I LOVED THIS BOOK!! I'm so disappointed that you have to pay to read books 2-4. I'm hoping they have them at the library!! SO, IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, READ THIS BOOK :D :D.Eillem27Score: 5/5
IdentityGreat start to the series by Ted Dekker. The themes of this book really hit home for me and like all of Dekker's books it really makes me think about where my identity comes from. Do I get my identity from my appearance, my parents, how smart I might be? How does our identity affect us and if it is removed our changed what becomes of us? Great mind twister. I recommend this series and all books written by Dekker..Mary_1johnScore: 5/5
IdentityThis book kept me reading until the end! Very good and had to see what happens next. Unfortunately, it was the first book of the series and only 100 pages long. Of course, I had to order the next book and probably all of the series now! Very good!.Bookworm SueScore: 5/5
Perfect!.Ted Dekker is by far my favorite author for many reasons but this... This book he has really outdone himself with. I couldn't put it down!. Finished it within an hour.

No thanksTed Decker is always edgy, but this book is not his best. It simply doesn’t go anywhere and from what I’ve learned about the rest of the story (which I haven’t read) I’m not interested in going where he goes. But, to each his own..Mad Mic MarvinScore: 2/5

DisappointingI guess if this is your first Ted Dekker read, it might be OK. But after Bride Collector, Priest's Graveyard, Sanctuary (wow), etc. this is very disappointing. I was hoping for a lot better. Moving on now and not going to read the rest if this collection, but will absolutely read anything else he writes on his own and sounds more like Boneman's Daughter (chills!!). Sorry Mr. Dekker.DaniTatieScore: 1/5

As she was looking for her silver socket, along Saint Matthews Hospital in Boston, she sidetracked into the hospital and had gotten lost. She got mistaken by a girl named Alice.

Beyond RealisticWhen I read this novel, I couldn't help but feel as helpless as the main character. The author expresses this book in a strong sense giving the reader a picture-able reality. I had discovered a fear I had never noticed prior to reading. That is how realistic this novel is. Worth while..Oliver KowalskiScore: 5/5
