SEER (Eyes Wide Open, Book 4) is the stunning conclusion to the four-episode digital series from New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker.Who am I? My name is Christy Snow.

I'm seventeen and I'm about to die. I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete. No one knows where I am. My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me. I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking.Some will say that I m not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don t even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave. My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen. I'm about to die. So who are you? In a return to the kind of storytelling that made Black, Showdown and Three unforgettable, Ted Dekker drags that question into the light with this modern day parable about how we see ourselves. Humming with intensity and blindsided twists, Eyes Wide Open is raw adrenaline from the first page to the last pure escapism packed with inescapable truth. Not all is as it seems. Or is it?

    OOOOOOOOOH, so that's why his next book is called "Outlaw" So glad I read this stories then.Dekker never fails me. Great thriller mix with a fantasticaly well written philosophical plot. Start seeing yourself with eyes wide open. Otherwise, she thought, where do the corrections end? What is good enough? Can perfect be measured by a scale or a law of better or worse? Esta serie de libros cortos te enseñan a verte tal y como eres frente al espejo y sonreír, a dejar de perder el tiempo intentando verte mejor para los demás y empezar a sentirte mejor contigo mismo. La perfección encierra todo, virtudes, defectos, sueños, miedos, mentalidad.Be perfect, don't try to become perfect The eye is the lamp of the body. Turn it on, and you’ll see that you have no problem. That you’re full of light. That the dark sea below you can’t swallow you at all. But take your eyes off the light and you’ll drown in the darkness you see. Darkness as well as beauty is in the eye of the beholder.Tu decides que ver, hacia que lado pertenecer, sentirte fuerte y con valor para salir a la luz, o temer por siempre en la oscuridad.There are times when the challenges of living in this world feel like more than you can bear. When nights all alone in your bedroom seem to turn your heart into a stone. When the mirror tells you that you’re not good enough; when the words of others say you never will be. The ‘law’ of this world tries to keep you trapped in its prison of condemnation, but in truth, that law is now dead and you are made whole, a new creature with more beauty and power than you can possibly imagine.Lo malo no son las dudas que uno llega a tener de si mismo, eso esta en nuestra naturaleza, lo malo es no saber como volver a ver las nuestras mejores partes, y junto con las malas, aprender a aceptarse.Un giro como de 180 grados que dio la serie con esta ultima entrega, me gusto, y pues como que te abre el panorama para el nuevo libro de Dekker: OUTLAW, obvio lo leeré, ojala lo traigan pronto a México, porque sus libros siempre se tardan en llegar, ¬¬ malditos.No, pero en serio, lean a Dekker, tienen unos thrillers muy buenos y todos tienen enseñanzas muy bonitas.

    Book 1: the storyline was decent. I was excited to see where it was headed. Book 2: WHERE is this going? It's a nail biter. Book 3: OMG this is dragging on forever, just tell us already. Book 4: are you serious. THAT is what it's about? Possibly the most non committal ending ever. I feel so duped. Like its going to be legandary, fantastic. But no wait, let's just make it some vague Biblical ending and not really give any kind of reason for anything.

    Overall, I enjoyed the Eyes Wide Open episodes. The series left me guessing most of the time which is fun but I expected a wild conclusion to book four and ultimately I was left wanting.I spent the first three books feeling that our protagonists were in great danger and as episode four plays out and our characters encounter someone new, everything changes. All of a sudden the danger is absent and it never returns. Instead it's an all out sprint to the unsatisfying end.In truth, SEER, felt safe. It felt rushed. After the pace and danger of books 1 - 3, I just expected more. And it would seem that the unsatisfactory ending is so abrupt because it is, in fact, just a beginning. A new series begins called Water Walker: The Outlaw Chronicles. It would appear that at least some of the characters from this story will continue in that book.I just wish I would have known that this was more or less a "prequel" or "stand-alone" book in a larger series. It may have helped me deal with that ending a bit better. I would have known not to expect a conclusive ending because it was just a jumping off point.So that's my take on SEER. It's probably the weakest of the four episodes. But as a whole, it works for what it is.

    As the final of four parts of the book Eyes Wide Open, this review will cover the story as a whole.Intriguing characters? Check. Wild fantastical tale? Check. Vivid setting/environment? Check.In typical Dekker fashion, this tale was woven into a much bigger story -- and the connections you'll make by the end are thrilling and exciting connections that tie back into the larger Dekker mythology.Can't wait to see how the continuation of this "new" saga unfolds. :)

    This is a terrible book that clearly outlines the brain washing that is so prevalent amongst any religious group. Even the ones who claim, "It is not a religion but a lifestyle." I am appalled that this was even published. Austin's story is probably the most problematic as he is highly intelligent and is scrutinized until the end for being so. Only because he was unwilling to believe the ridiculous and false information that Christy fell for. The fact that we have these polar opposites, one who is incredibly insecure and one who is highly intelligent, is interesting. More interesting though is that Dekker makes it clear that religious groupings prey on those who are insecure and win them to their side hoping upon hope that one day the intelligent ones will turn to them too. Disgusting.

    I loved this book!!! Loved the allegory of Christ that sees us as beautiful no matter what we see, illusion or not. This really hit me in a personal way as I sometimes allow fears to become my reality, when its just letting my mind be overtaken by lies from satan. Great little series!

    So the first three books are physiological thrillers and this one launches out into spiritual metaphor. At first it felt like a big jump from the other books but by the end I appreciated the metaphor.

    The ending wasn't what I was expected, but kept me reading and wondering right until the end.By the end of the book I was still left with questions. I think if I read Outlaw first, somethings would have made more sense.Ted Dekker send me on a roller-coaster ride with this series. It was the first time, but not the last, that I've read a book by him. This book/series will keep you on the edge of your seat, finding yourself reading page after page and sometimes left totally confused.You can read this book as a novelor as 4 separate episodes of a series

    **spoiler alert**Perhaps I missed something in my following of Ted Dekker's publication notices, but while I anxiously had awaited the debut of this series, I did not realize that this conclusion to his four part "Eyes Wide Open" series would rather not conclude, but rather send his readers down a twisted turn back into a place I have missed: The Books of History Chronicles. The conclusion of the series was wonderful. Ted has created two very vibrant characters yet again in Christy and Austin, and I look forward to revisiting Project Showdown and the events surrounding what happened in the monastery and Paradise Colorado. I am excited to learn more about the Outlaws and The Tribe. Ted has done another Thomas Hunter for his loyal readers and I am very excited to be at the beginning of the ride this time through.

    Really good, fast-paced read...if a little bizarre.This final book brought the inevitable tie-in to Dekker's other works and also brought in a bit of allegory into the mix. By the time you get to the end of this one, you still feel a little unresolved on some points and I found myself kinda wondering, well...what was real and what wasn't. Which I think is the point. And I hope that some of those questions get answered in ensuing books as the final page of this one lets you know that this is the first intallment in a new series.I'll keep reading. These were quite entertaining.

    I'm just gonna post a few thoughts on this last "book" in the Eyes wide open series. I never cease to be amazed at the richness of allegory that Ted Dekker creates to show truth,the battle of good and evil and the love that God has for us. I really enjoyed this series of books. I can't wait for the next one. I would follow that Outlaw character anywhere!

    I found book four to be a confusing mess. I was not satisfied at all and have no clear understanding what Christy and Austin's experience in the mental hospital has to do with figuring out their past. Disappointed and moving on to read "Unbroken".

    At first, the story, in Identity, began as just another strange psychological thriller, but here, in Seer, it turns out to not only be full of major twists and turns, but part of an extended universe of Ted's own handimaking. Now for the outlaws to take over.

    Immediately following: "I found this book...done in four parts with this being the last part...to be a wild ride of mental disturbance that was so suspenseful and made me really think. I loved this last part....what an amazing message of hope for life. Christian or not I think everyone can open their minds to this. Looks like there will be an even bigger story coming. A more in-depth review to come."I gave Seer 5 stars and the rest 4 stars because this last installment was the very best. Review from blog, www.hookofabook.wordpress.comIdentity (Book 1), Mirrors (Book 2), Unseen (Book 3) and Seer (Book 4) are all part of a four episode thrill ride from New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker. Combined, these sections puzzle together an almost 300-page book called Eyes Wide Open. First launched at the end of December with the free Identity, it continued at a one book per week serial pace and are now all currently available in e-book format separately. In February, all will combine as Eyes Wide Open for purchase as a paperback. I love the covers of each book too, which I'll show throughout the post. They are amazing and fit the story perfectly! Great symbolism!Ted Dekker is one of my top five favorite authors of all time in any genre. When he sent out an e-mail asking his loyal readers to sign-up for an exciting release, and offered the first section free, I jumped at the chance to check it out. Identity really held my interest and I moved through it in an hour or less and couldn't wait for the next installment. The action was intense and I felt like the main character, Christy, fell through the proverbial Wonderland rabbit hole and into a milder version of an evil asylum all to end up popping through (instead of in) a coat closet to Narnia. My head was spinning throughout Mirrors and I was as confused as the characters were. The Wonderland analogy in a demented and diluted sort of way kept appearing to me as well as similar allegorical themes such as sometimes illusions can seem so real that they become real. I was really confused and a little horrified (which is a good thing) by the beginning of Unseen, but parts of it also really touched my heart and I could relate to this message. It's one I struggle with. It is a Christian message, more clear than in most any other book I've read by him, but for me, so endearing. Really, anyone can use a reminder on the message of hope and beauty. It is about humankind and love. I wish so much I could tell you, but I don't want to spoil it for you.I couldn't wait for Seer to hit for purchase this week and luckily enough it came early. And with it, as I read it, came an enlightenment on the entire book, as how we stumble sometimes upon an enlightenment in our life. I was so happy and fulfilled. We need to sometimes not just "take off our rose-colored glasses" but also put on our lenses (or lamps as in the book) and see our light and "the" light. Dekker, through the other characters, reminds us that everyone's timing and road is different. Just as some of the other characters weren't complete by the end, I was also left hoping for more about a mysterious stranger we are introduced to in book 3 and 4. At the end of Seer, I was pleasantly surprised and excited to see that he announced a new novel (maybe a series) focusing on this character and probably some of the other characters we already grew to know and feel compassion for.I will always want to read anything he likes and I won't judge if I'll continue to read him or not based on any certain book or series. Why? Because he is always pushing his own boundaries as well as ours as readers; he's trying new things and taking risks. Sometimes that works better than other times, but he always entertains as well as makes a reader think (as long as that reader is willing to think).He is a Christian author and sometimes his books are allegorical in nature, but many of his suspense thrillers can be read by anyone who just loves straight mind-bending psychological suspense. He doesn't always sell himself as a Christian author. However, in this series none of the marketing materials or content (plus he self-published using his Outlaw Studios so there isn't any Christian publisher involved) mentioned that there would be a Christian message. He already has some secular horror and suspense readers up in arms over there being no "warning." Is that something that needs to be done? What do you think? I thought the message was an important one, whether you are a Christian or not, and anyone of any belief could find inspiring and motivational insight behind the message he presents in this book. In regards to his marketing choices as well, he also didn't really announce it as a young adult novel. Reading his other books, I felt the writing style was plainer and thought it didn't quite feel like him. Anyone reading him for the first time should not judge his other works on this. I felt that he either rushed this plot and prose and didn't polish it up, or he meant it for young adults. Without him saying which, I struggled with the whole book on this point since I was caught off guard. Again, as with the point previously mentioned, maybe he wanted to gain as many readers as possible to get to a #1 Amazon spot, but I feel he did himself a small injustice as an author.Also, I bet if he announced as young adult appropriate, which it was, he would have gotten more readers. Many of his books teens probably shouldn't read due to their nature so parents wouldn't know to purchase for their kids too. It is totally teen appropriate and the message such a good learning point for them. It needs on a YA list! When doing research for this blog (there is nothing up on his website as of 1/15/2013) it took me days to find any reference to it being a young adult genre, which I finally spotted on an Amazon synopsis (you can see for yourself on the synopsis I posted from there).The only other final thing I have to remark on, and I hate to do it to my favorite author, but he really needed to slow down with this book. He really needed to hire an editor and if he did, he needs his money back. This was the most awful display of missed words and errors that I have ever seen in a bestselling author. Many times I got held up on a word that was missing and I am fast reader who skims. I don't know how many times I remarked on this. It made me feel as if he just didn't put the care into it. Yes, the first book was free but his reputation is on the line with new readers. What kind of impression is this? Also, the next three books were $2.99 each for about 100 pages each...that is quite a bit of money for me to spend--$10 for a 300 page e-book. We have a collection of his books on our shelf too, if we wanted to get the combined paperback in February it would be another $14.99 and how do I know that the errors will be corrected?? He may get away with leaning on the fact that people like me who are dire hard fans will purchase anyway, but really we should still get our money's worth. If you are going to self-publish more works Ted Dekker, please hire an editor (I'm available!!).That said, readers and Ted too, don't take me wrong. I am a marketer and PR person by trade and I tend to have an eye that looks towards these issues. I know that Ted Dekker took a big gamble on self-publishing, which means he has to write and market his own books. (I'm happy to offer advice!)Overall, it was a great new endeavor in taking a risk and trying several new things which are serial e-books, making a prequel so huge that everyone wants to join the club for what's coming up next, offering his first free e-book section to create a buzz, and for him, self-publishing. I'm glad I was paying attention to his Facebook page and was already signed-up to receive his e-mail messages. It's how I knew about the book coming out...his website doesn't have any info. He really does treat his loyal fans well, so if you are a fan, be sure to sign-up on his website to get email notices or follow his Facebook updates.I loved the story overall. It messed with my mind and made me think and cry and wonder all at various times. It felt surreal and yet real and it took ahold of my thoughts for weeks. I'd recommend the read and I really can't wait for the next novel.

    This series was a hard one for me to read. Episode 1, while poorly written, introduced an interesting story line - 2 people wrongly admitted to a psych ward. It felt with each episode the story line got less and less interesting and the writing worse and worse. it also seemed like the author did zero research and left things very unclear. For me, there wasn't a single likeable or relatable character. I will not recommend anyone read this book.

    Full review is available here.http://eagerreaderreviews.blogspot.co...When this, no, wait, these books came out, they were done in four parts. One quarter of the book was released each week until you finally had the entire book. I found Identity, the first part of the story, on Amazon for free (kindle edition). In fact, you'd have to look, but I'm pretty sure I saw it there last night, still for free.This isn't my normal reading material and I had never read anything from Ted Dekker before, but if you check out his Goodreads profile he has written a ton of books! I think this was categorized as a psychological thriller...if I'm correct in that then I would have to say I agree.I was constantly questioning what was real in this book. Have you read The Hunger Games? Do you remember when Peeta has ask Katniss "real or not real?" That was me the entire time I was reading this! For that, I give Ted major props...I'm generally the girl who has the entire story mapped out by the end of the first chapter. There are two main characters, contrary to what the synopsis leads you to believe and they both narrate the story. Christy and Austin are friends who have no memories of their childhood. You don't learn very much about their everyday life before they accidentally wind up as patients in the psych ward. Each book (of the four listed above) will bring you closer and closer to the truth about who Austin and Christy are, why there are there and what is going on...at least, that's what you are lead to believe.Read the rest of my review here: http://eagerreaderreviews.blogspot.co...

    Here's the thing you need to know about Ted Dekker, and I did know this going in, but was sucked in anyway. He's a Christian author, and his publishing company is a Christian book publishing company, so it makes sense that there will be religious overtones to his work. That in of itself is just fine. What I have a problem with, and this series is a good example, is where he just uses it to tie up the book without actually "resolving" anything.The first 3 parts were really top notch suspense, and it kept me coming back each week. Book 4 however, didn't really tie anything up, and the whole circumstance of the whole mental ward being a figment of their imagination as a way to truly see who they are, just didn't sit right. He tried to tie it up, but for me, it just left the door open for more questions, and the whole circumstance could have been handled so much better.I guess was wanted more of a Shutter Island type of ending, with an answer rather than a "faith" type of ending.

    Well we made it to the end of this rollercoaster of a series and was it worth the ride? Oh yes and a little no.The final installment has the same thundering suspense and physical horror that we've come to know in the first three installments, and somehow manages to be even more mind bending if that's possible.We subtly shift from straight horror to a more aligory in it's take. Reality and fantasy collide and it's all we can do to hold on to our own. This is one of those tales to really makes you think long after the last page is turned and the last word read. There are a few connections to Dekker's previous title, Showdown (which not having read - I know shame, will rectify) but this did not detract from the overall conclusion. This tale is definetly not yet done entirely and one feels gently admonished to keep your 'Eyes Wide Open' as the tale continues.

    Review on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2F9IAN5...Review on my blog (to be posted 2/17): http://christianbookshelfreviews.blog...Seer was a really good read! I was a little disappointed with/didn't like a few things that happened in the book, but it was still a great read. The ending was not what I was expecting and I liked being kept on my toes. It was also nice how Ted Dekker tied this book's story to some of his other books - I love how he does that! Makes me want to go back and reread them. :) A really good book and I look forward to reading more of Ted Dekker's novels in the future.*I did not get this for review. Someone lent me their Kindle copy (thanks!). All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

    Longtime fans of Ted Dekker will leap for joy after completing this book. If you enjoyed the twists of Thr3e and the turns of The Circle series and the Showdown saga, you will fall head over heels for the mind-altering aspects of Seer.It's been written for so many reviews that it's become cartoonish but this is Ted Dekker in his element. When he can string you along at break-neck speed and offering just enough answers to keep you doubling back on your assumptions.As best as you can, try not to figure it out before the unveil; just flow with the storytelling. You need to read the first three e-books before tackling this one - everything will make sense if you do that.Ted will not let you down with this conclusion to Book 1 of The Outlaw Chronicles!

    This is actually a short review of the four book series. As always with Dekker, there is a huge push for you to come to Christ. I personally really appreciate the way in which he is capable of sharing the word to those outside of the church family. In this story, it is difficult to determine what is real and what is illusion, or delusion. You buy into the issues because the characters feel so real. Dekker's strength is writing a taut story that begs to be read cover to cover as fast as you can. Many will not appreciate the view of Christianity that runs through his work (because he writes fiction to teach truth), but he does without doubt show that we serve a loving God. These short books are a great albeit short read, but be prepared to hear real truth in the end.

    How annoying! What I thought was the end of a mini-series actually turns into being a prequel to a much larger series, and I for one, will not be reading.What the hell just happened here?!? All of this was a figment of their imaginations? They were all trapped in their dark feelings, unable to see the beauty of the world? And a monastery?! Enough already. I get the point. This book was supposed to serve as a beacon of hope for all of those who feel lost or not good enough. That we are all perfect the way we are, made in the image of God. Dekker wasn't preachy, but I get where he was going and honestly, if I had known, I wouldn't have wasted by time. Oh well. A quick read for all four parts. Overall, I'd give the series 2.5 stars.

    I quickly read through all four parts of this book soon to be released as one book. it was awesome! Two young adults accidentally stumble into a hospital ward for mental patients...but they can't get out. The staff seems to think they are two inpatients that recentally escaped and that they're dilusional. the doctors use some forms of treatment that are pretty barbaric, and the minds of our two friends begin to slip. Until, one day, something wonderful happens, and you begin to understand what's really going on. Ted Dekker is a Christian author so those of us who are Christians pick up on the truth at the end, although I admit that initially I was confused. I hope he makes these books into a trilogy, which I believe is his intention. Really look forward to reading more!

    I am almost at a loss for words! I just finished book four of the Eyes Wide Open series and I would have to say I am in a bit of a shock.Seer, Book 4, was fairly action packed and a lot of questions answered. I can honestly say I did NOT expect the outcome of this book. I would highly recommend reading either the individual books are get the entire novel at once. You will be hooked and will want to read the entire thing.I will not give too much away, but I will say this. In this book and in life there are those who we think are strong, but are really trapped by some demon we cannot see and then, there are others we expect to fall on their face and quit at any moment, but they stand in the face of adversity in a way we never thought possible! That was part of the shock of this book.

    This is the final installment in the Eyes Wide Open Series. This one was a big let down from the other three books. First, the plot slows down considerably from the other three books. There is another character that's introduced in the book and I thought it was awkward the way he was brought in. It really upset the balance of the plot up to this point. I thought twice about finishing it but I couldn’t read the first three books and not finish the fourth. The ending was a little weak and was I definitely hoping for more. This book leaves it open for additional series. Even though I was less then thrilled with this last book I will be more then likely check out other books by the author.

    You've done it again, Mr. Dekker! You suck me in and I love the way you make me see things! I am reminded I am an outlaw! THANK YOU!This is the last in these short books...that are, well...they leave me speechless. I can't tell you. You have to read them. The first three are classic Dekker scary/weird but if you've read anything by Ted Dekker...you know he's got a message for you. ..and this one is BIG folks! As with all his books, it stems from another...I will not spoil! But, the message of this book...beautiful. You should read them...if you start you. must. FINISH. I pray you will SEE! :)I AM AN OUTLAW!BE AN OUTLAW!
