Title: Obsessed

Author: Ted Dekker

Date I finished Reading: January 6, 2012

My Rating: 3/5

Ted Dekker is a christian author known for his gripping thrillers. Obsessed, however, was a bit disappointing. The book was okay, but very unbelievable and predictable at times. Stephen, a jewish man, is embarking on a journey to discover where he came from and what has been left behind for him. The story flashes back in time to show us bits and pieces of the story that Stephen doesn’t see. I consider this to be a positive attribute to Ted Dekker’s unique writing style.

The book is set in the 1970’s, a time not found too often in modern fiction. This provides a nice alternative! However, there are a few disturbing features. For example, the villain believes that drinking blood makes him powerful and thus drinks his victims’ blood regularly. Kinda creepy, huh?

Anyway, if you are wanting a good, clean, christian thriller I recommend Thr3e, another work by Ted Dekker. Obsessed, however, not so much…
