©2007 Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti; (P)2009 Oasis Audio
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I love suspense and fantasy, but most books ignore God and His mercy. This book combined everything I love to read and also combine it with the miracle of God's love for us, and how He is willing to lead us on the path of forgiveness as long as we are willing to trust and obey Him. The main characters are two couples, all with issues from their past, and their struggle to overcome their personal fears and weaknesses, while struggling to stay alive in a house filled with evil; the worst of all being stalked by a serial killer. This book is gripping and thought-provoking. A must read for every Christian who loves this genre.
This book starts off quite good you can picture the scene so well but as the book goes on it gets a little confusing and i found myself drifting a bit but the ending as ab it of a twist its a good 10 hours so be prepared to concentrate
"It's a fabulous book but warning..."
House was a well executed storyline with characters that had well defined, yet abstract, back stories. The way in which the story unfolds keeps you wrapped up in each page. I must warn you though it does cause you to take stock of the contents and conditions of your own heart. it begs for inflection.
The tension and the conflict of the characters. The good vs. evil plot.
The battle between Susan and White.
The peak of the Susan vs. White battle
No. I always like to savor a good book.
Kevin King is an excellent narrator.
I read about this book before I read it, so I knew the surprise going in. With that said, I didn't find the story confusing. Though u had to pay attention. I loved the message and the cause of the haunted house was pefect!
"I liked "House""
I am a fan of all Frank Peretti books and liked this just as much. Very good book ... much to think about as the book ends!
"The "House" that Peretti/Dekker Built"
These are two of my absolute favorite authors, but this book just never got off the ground. The story was weak and it lacked a lot of the tension I've come to expect from both these authors. A better narrator might have helped, as this one was a bit monotone, but all in all the imagry and suspense I was expecting from these two heavy-hitters just wasn't there. I'll keep reading their individual books though. Those are incredible!
I enjoyed this book. I had to go back a few times to make certain that I caught everything that was going on. But I did enjoy it!
"Absolutely the Worst: Not Christian Literature"
We liked several of Perretti's novels and recently purchased House for a long car trip. This was not Christ-like literature by any stretch of the imagination. The characters were very shallow and the constant back and forth between them was tedious and annoying. The plot was ridiculous, boring and gory. It was non sensical. We actually listened up almost the end and could take no more. Not sure what's going on with this author to think that somehow this story glorified God. It was nothing short of a poorly written, secular, horror novel.
Good for the time of year (october) a bit intense although it is a Christian based book.
Dekker and Peretti do an excellent job of crafting a horrifying, engaging story with well made characters. King did such an excellent job narrating, I can't see anyone else doing it. Very well done.
"Rooting For The House"
Too many conflicts and I wasn't convinced by the characters. Predictable.
