Black: The Birth of Evil

Black: The Birth of Evil  - Ted Dekker This is the first book I have read by Ted Dekker and I thought he wrote horror novels. Black is for sure not a horror novel.

The horrific idea of a virus that can take out the world in days is scary and hopefully will always only be part of the fiction world. The character of Thomas Hunter was excellent. A quirky, funny guy who gets caught inbetween two worlds, literally! The interaction between him and his sister is good for a few laughs that help pull the story along.

All the jumping between realities got to be too much for me and I did lose interest and skimmed to the end. It's a book about good vs evil and how the choices that we make touch so many people.

If you want to read something different with a strong Christian theme give Black a try.
