    " This is a very interusting book,Ted Dekker did a very good job at getting the reader ito the the world of the book this is one of three books theres Black,Red,and White . For this book yu must read them in order so yeah good luck and happy reading "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisianna | 2/12/2014

    " This book pulls you in to the bizarre realities of Thomas Hunter. You feel almost as confused as Thomas as to which world is real, or if they both are real...either way, there's trouble in paradise and Thomas is at the center of it in both worlds! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tgirl | 2/11/2014

    " A great thriller, but I felt a slight shallowness to the characters. Otherwise, the experience was amazing, and I'm excited to read the next book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kailyani | 2/8/2014

    " really have to pay attention "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Mitchell | 2/5/2014

    " This is probably the most unique book I have ever read. Not to give too much away, but the element of the story that is unique is that the main character is transported to a post-apocalyptic future once he goes to sleep. One that is so real that he cannot figure out which "world" is reality. In the future, the veil has been lifted (partially) from the spiritual world and humans can see "angels" and "demons." What he learns in the future may help stop the impending apocalypse, but what he learns in the present helps him survive the post-apocalyptic world. I read Green first (which is called a prequel/sequel in the Circle Series). If I had it to do over, I would read Black first. Reading Green first was difficult because the author did not spend a lot of time with the setting and characters and there was no background for all of the characters in the novel. Black is Book 1 in the series and should remain so...read Green last! "

    " The Circle trilogy really captured my attention. I couldn't put them down. They have the elements of fantasy and adventure that I love. The correlation to Christianity was well done. I would highly recommend anything by Dekker. "

    " its really trippy but i like it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Tristam | 1/10/2014

    " Was a great read until it descended into trite religiosity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron | 1/8/2014

    " I highly recommend this along with the rest of the trilogy for fantasy fans. I do not, however, as highly recommend the fourth book, Green. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda | 1/8/2014

    " First 4-5 chapters were confusing but once I figured out what was going on...couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd Page | 12/24/2013

    " The circle series - right up there with the best set of books I've ever read - right up there with Lord of the Rings.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Mena | 12/17/2013

    " The start of one of my all time favorite series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 12/7/2013

    " I liked Black. I'm not usually a big fan of the fantasy type of book but Dekker did a good job with it. I liked the symbolism, and Dekker has a gift for coming up with original ideas and writing in a way that holds your attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly Bratton | 11/4/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laurie Frederick | 7/16/2013

    " Too weird and boring "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi Rhea | 6/15/2013

    " Interesting book with a spiritual, make you think aspect. Will read the next book soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 6/12/2013

    " I thought it was very clever. I liked the imagery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan May | 3/21/2013

    " A good idea but very poor execution. Where was the editor. Needs a lot of editing to polish it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekka K. Steg | 3/16/2013

    " I absolutely adore all of Ted Dekkers books. This series is absolutely amazing and mind-blowing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish Cooper | 12/3/2012

    " Ted Dekker is an author that I can't put down! Fantasy is not my normal genre, but he has a way of weaving fantasy, mystery, drama, and even romance into one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 11/29/2012

    " Great fantasy that takes you out of this world literally into the future. Mirrors the story of The Fall and gives a great meaning to having true love lead your life as God loves you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 7/12/2012

    " Interesting concept, but I didn't enjoy the delivery. After 100 pages, I have no desire to finish. I just couldn't take the alternate world seriously; it was a little too weird for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda Clubb | 4/15/2012

    " This book was a little hard to read at first, but so worth it! Great book series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karissa | 3/2/2012

    " This book is absolutely a good book...I recommend anybody to read this thriller series... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 11/4/2011

    " The Roush seem really cool. Lol but the guy who ate the black bats' fruit was stupid >:P on him! I love Thomas though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 10/6/2011

    " Like the allegory concept of the two worlds. Did not like the length nor some of the character names. Not sure if I will continue the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Short | 7/25/2011

    " An excellent work that reveals itself to be an allegory for the human condition in the end. The book brings to mind CS Lewis writing the Chronicles of Narnia. Thoroughly entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skip | 5/16/2011

    " Another great installment of the Circle Trilogy. There isn't a single book in this series that I didn't like. Dekker is one of those rare authors that can take Christian and spiritual themes and weave them in a story worth telling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayley | 5/14/2011

    " No proper word could describe it. I couldn't put it down!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mauricio | 5/5/2011

    " It was ok. But it could very well do without all the moral/religious stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 4/21/2011

    " A pretty good Christian fictional author. I'm reading RED (the next book) on my Kindle right now.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/12/2011

    " Good book. Beats christianity into your head a little to much, but still enjoyable if you can get past the eye-rollingly blatant christian references. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pen | 4/6/2011

    " This book grips you from the beginning. Ted is a master at suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffini | 4/6/2011

    " Interesting. A cliff hanger. I am anxious to read the next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin | 4/1/2011

    " this book was great, even my husband who hates reading is enjoying it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiersten | 3/28/2011

    " I loved all three of these books!!!! The were very compelling and extremely fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 3/28/2011

    " Interesting idea. Main character dreams of a world, but then not so certain which "life" is dream and which is real. And one begins to have connections with the other. "
