BoneMan's Daughters by Ted Dekker {book review}

by - April 12, 2010

This book broke my heart. It was horrifying and gut-wrenching, chill-you-to-the-bone, hard to stomach but impossible to put down. It crawled into my mind and made me squirm. Ted Dekker has created characters that will take me a long time to forget. The BoneMan is a terrifying monster, and the fact that he's loosely based on a real predator from Dekker's own life makes him that much more frightening. The love of a failed father for the daughter that coldly rejects him propels the plot as it twists from a bunker in Iraq to a basement in Texas. It's a heart-pounding, adrenaline fueled ride that left me breathless and blinking at tears. The best $5.99 (Costco special!!!!!) that I've spent in a long time.
Ted Dekker continues to surpass my expectations and has earned and maintains his spot in my all time top five!
There are two things I love about Ted Dekker; nay, three that I would abandon all obligations to lose myself in.
One: He is a master of suspense.
Two: His exploration of the human psyche, in all it's flaws and glory, blows my mind.
Three: The tales he weaves are so brilliant, so vivid and riddled with that timeless theme of good verses evil (without seeming ordinary and redundant) that I can revisit his stories over and over again and always be surprised, always entertained and always convicted on some level within my own character.
