    1. I was informed of this book by a friend here on Good reads. And also was told that it was by Ted Dekker. I knew then that the book was going to be a the ride of my life. And I came up with a quote just from reading the first couple of pages. "I love a book, that when I open the cover, all the intensity and excitement rushes out to me drawing me into the pages." And the describes this book to a TEE!Dekker also makes use of small interudes in between chapters to further mold his charatcers, Jessic [...]


    2. The first of nine article installments placed throughout Ted Dekker's Adam shouldn't have compelled me to the degree that it did. Having read his epic Circle series, I'd familiarized myself with his unique writing style, therefore I should have had a general idea of what to expect. I couldn't have been more wrong. Not only did it compel me to keep reading, the horrific childhood events of Alex and Jessica Price fascinated me. What's more, I empathized with them, which is impressive on its own, c [...]


    3. This story is compelling, gripping, fascinating and amazing. It's clear to me that the author spent countless hours on research. I was at the hospital the other day and recommended it to a doctor who saw me reading it. I told him it had a gross autopsy scene with plenty of details and a mysterious illness they were trying to understand. I think he wrote the title down. Anyway, the natural realm and the supernatural converge in this impressive tale about good and evil. Who better to tell this fri [...]


    4. Serial killer chase with a twist of the supernatural. Couldnt wait to read the book. It was SOOOO bad. It is completely contrived, totally unbelieveable. The main characters are FBI agents, doctors and lawyers, but they all wander around like retarded 10 year olds. Its preposterous. Not becasue of the supernatural element, but becasue the author goes out of his way for the killer. The protagonists, all with doctorate or law degrees act like idiots. If you wouldnt encourage your 10 year old to ac [...]


    5. Ted Dekker does these stories that are all so similar in style and genre-- BUT THEY ARE ALL SO UNIQUE and carry these wonderful messages.


    6. Korkuyorum korkuyorum korkuyorum :SKitaba polisiye diye başladım sonuna kadar da öyle gitti ama son 80 sayfa da ne oluyor dedim :S Kitap Exorcist filmine döndü :S Tamam öyle inanmıyorum bize de ters ama bizde de onun adı cin çarpması benziyo yani :S Çok ürkünçtü beee :S Ben sevdim kitabı konuyu pek anlatmak istemiyorum arka kapak yazısında var zaten ama dediğim gibi polisiye değil Yüreğiniz dayanamazsa gerilime okumayın yani ben uyarayım :D Az önce bitirdim zaten hala et [...]


    7. I overlooked so much about this book. The fact that it was a Christian novel, or at least I realized it later when I read other critiques didn't really bother me or turn me off. Writing is writing and we learn from everything we see and or read. Nor did I ever feel preached too or that Dekker was beating me over the head with some 'higher' message. In that regard, I thought he handled the book fine. The book itself is about an obsessive FBI agent, a non-believing FBI agent, and as cliché as it [...]


    8. 4 StarsWhat in the heck just happened?? I was reading about some crazed serial killer, and news accounts of his poor, pathetic childhood; then a huge twist happened and we start reciting the Lords Prayer! By the end of this book, we all needed it. What a journey, and the inclusion of a series of news reports, really made the story interesting and feel 'real.' Yes, there were creepy moments; it's a serial killer for pete's sake; but creepy in "The Exorcist" kind of way. This fascination of Adam a [...]


    9. Reading this thriller during my husband's family reunion, I was constantly caught hiding underneath the bed trying to read another paragraphwas it due to my fascination with the book? or my distaste for large gatherings? You be the judge.From the first page, the reader is thrown headlong into a mystery:"New York Times best-selling author Ted Dekker unleashes his most riveting novel yet . . . an elusive serial killer whose victims die of unknown causes and the psychologist obsessed with catching [...]


    10. Adam is Ted Dekker's best and most compelling work to date, and also the most disturbing. If it were to be compared to a movie, 'The Exorcist' would be the closest. I quote Dekker when he says,"This is one of the only books I've ever written, where, honestly, I was so disturbed by what I discovered that I had trouble going to sleep at night."One of the editors who worked on 'Adam' commented, " by the way, I'm sleeping with the lights on as I'm reading this book. And when that doesn't work, I'm p [...]


    11. Looks like a lot of people like this book. The person that forced me to read this REALLY LOVED this book, but I pretty much hated it throughout. Characters were terrible and one-dimensional; plot was stupid and unbelievable (besides the tantalizing newspaper articles that were every other chapter); the end set up really made me hate it--mainly b/c the idea was very interesting but was like 1/100 of the actual book. The author obviously cribbed a great deal of the plot from Hostage to the Devil, [...]


    12. This is the first book I've read by Ted and I really enjoyed it. I slowly worked my way through it when I wasn't writing to kind of give my brain a break. Pure joy reading.The story was told masterfully; really great writing style, painting haunting and sometimes gruesome images (especially near the end). I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of this type of fiction, but the story drew me in, and where the author took the plot at the end really fit. Even though I knew it was coming, the culmination of a [...]


    13. Absolutely fuck this book. At first it was just so much Koontzian twaddle, which is okay. I listened to it, and insufferable writing has the edge taken off a little that way. But it started dragging in the middle like a fat dog's belly, and the what a tweest at the end was the deal-breaker. And then Dekker spends the coda straight up proselytizing about the dangers of being an atheist. It puts me in mind of the Filter lyric: " makes me want to stick my dick in your face."


    14. This was a great, great book. Not only is Dekker's writing far and above most others, the plot twists and turns were layered so well I didn't see them coming, including the big reveal at the end. Very well done and highly recommended!


    15. This book grabbed me and didn't let me go till the end. This is the first book I have read by this author, and wow! I will definitely be reading more of his stuff. Apparently he is known for his battle between good and evil in his books and it is definitely evident here. What suprised me most was that it was in the Christian section of the book store, and up until the end, I did not feel that shoved that in our face. He beautifully crafted his Christian views without making us feel like heathons [...]


    16. Asla olmaz, inanmam dememek lazım bence. Sonuçta insanlar dışında varlıklar da var. Ama şu bir gerçek ki bazen insanlar kötü doğar bazen de çocukken yaşadıkları yada yaşatıldıkları şeyler onları kötü yapar.Ted Dekker ilk kez okudum ama sanırım son olmayacak. Yazım dilini çok ama çok sevdim. Bu arada Jessica tam bir süpriz oldu benim için


    17. This book was recommended to me by a great friend and I'd like to say thank you (you know who you are! ;-))This book was fantastic. The story grips you from the very beginning and doesn't let go until the end. My heart was pounding the entire time; a non-stop thrill ride.This was my first book by Ted Dekker and I'm happy to say that I'm now hooked. I can't wait to read his other work.


    18. Una vez más, Ted Dekker nos guía por una historia trepidante en la que desde el primer momento sabes quién es el asesino y, aun así, te mantiene pegado a las páginas y deseando sacar un rato para seguir avanzando.(view spoiler)[Me ha parecido muy interesante el reconocimiento implícito de la Iglesia Católica como la autoridad a la que consultar en temas relacionados con el demonio y que la deje en muy buen lugar, algo que me ha sorprendido gratamente.He dicho anteriormente que se sabe des [...]


    19. This is not book reviewbut a short synopsis for my future reference!!! Author. TED DEKKERLocation Los Angels, California, OklahomaCharacters Daniel Clark, Alex Price(aka)Eve, Heather, Jessica, Lori Ames, Father Seymour and othersGenre Thriller // HorrorPLOT This story is divided in to two parts. First part is reporter, Annie Rudolph's narrative account of the tragic past of the killer, known as "Alex Price", from 1964 to 1992,titled "MAN OF SORROWS: JOURNEY IN TO DARKNESS" written for Crime toda [...]


    20. Esperando encontrar un libro de Novela negra, terminé por encontrar algo que no esperaba, un libro de terror tan bien escrito que me parece que es la primera vez que leo algo que me da miedo, buenísimo. Excelente si es que te gusta el género del terror.


    21. Daniel Clark is an FBI psychologist on the trail of Eve, a serial killer who has killed 15 woman by poisoning them with a disease very like meningitis. When Daniel catches Eve in the act of his sixteenth killing, Eve shoots Daniel and kills him; kills him for about 20 minutes anyway. Daniel is resuscitated by his new partner, pathologist Lori Ames. After being resuscitated, Daniel doesn't remember what Eve looked like, and when Daniel's ex-wife Heather becomes Eve's next potential victim, Daniel [...]


    22. Well, this was ok, I guess. I suppose. Some of the gushing 5 star reviews are confusing me. It starts off as a run of the mill catch-that-killer, but then goes off some strange tangents, which are not quite successful It's just so dry. There is absolutely no humour, I have no idea what the characters are like outside of their job description, and the twist could have been handled better - I just tossed a coin to decide which female character was Jessica. And the protagonist is boor-ring. I know [...]


    23. I started the audiobook. Interesting synopsis and cover. So far it is hard for me to get into the story until like chapter 4 or so. (I had to restart the audiobook since I was bored)This reads like a legal thriller which I wasn't anticipating with the culprit being a supernatural being, or someone who just used the name loosely, and is it this EVE character who is killing women from 15-24 yrs old spontaneously. I have an idea who it is, but will see how this plays out.This reminds me of James Pa [...]

    25. I am a fan of Ted Dekker. He always has a surprise in store for his readers. He obviously did a ton of research for this book and it shows in some of the detailed explanations and action sequences that he presents. He gives the reader interesting peeks into the motivation of his characters without giving away too much and was certainly inventive in coming up with the way to utilize the near death experience of Daniel, the main character. I think that the portion of the book kind of went against [...]


    26. Parts of this book were actually somewhat interesting. However, they were all eclipsed by the several ridiculously stupid plot "twists" throughout the entire novel.From bringing a man back to life after being dead for twenty minutes and having that same man being able to not only wake up the next day without any brain damage, but to also walk out of the hospital. Or perhaps killing that SAME man- twice more with a big dose of epinephrine for the sake of maaaaybe recalling a face that he saw once [...]


    27. Kitapta iki farklı bölüm paralel olarak ilerliyor. Birinci bölümde bir gazetecinin Havva adı ile anılan Alex Pricfe'nın öyküsünü gazetede yayınlanan bölümlerinden oluşuyor. Diğer kısımda ise bir seri katili yakalama çabalarını anlatıyor. Biz ise hem yakalama çabalarını hem de yakalanmak istenen seri katilin trajedik öyküsünü okuyoruz. Aynı anda iki farklı pencere. Çocukken kaçırılan iki kardeş ve hayatın onlardan aldıkları ve ruhlarına işleyen acılar Di [...]


    28. Ted Dekker is a genius.The end.No, not really the end. I just like to say that. :P Anyways, this bookwow! I love Ted Dekker, big time. He's one of my all time favorite authors. This book just made me love him more. Adam sucked me in as soon as I started reading it. It was compelling, suspenseful, brilliant & even a bit scary at times! For years Daniel Clark has been trying to catch a serial killer known as Eve. Before Daniel realizes it, he has become obsessed with Eve. After an accident tha [...]


    29. This moved along well and was an enjoyable read but I didn't find it particularly gripping or particularly profound. There was s slight surprise at the end but not momentous enough to thrill or chill. In the end I felt like I was reading an evangelical tract warning people about the dangers of demon possession. Whether these are real or not, I felt like the descriptions were technical rather than personal and I can't imagine being motivated to adopt a different view as a result. Part of my issue [...]


    30. It had suspense and a good story line but it just didn't end well for me. I am not sorry I read it but I could have used another 20-30 pages to give me satisfaction. I will read more of Dekker's books in the future but only after I finish with the books I already have. This book was a gift from a good friend and I am glad they gave it to me as I would probably not have bought or checked it out based solely on the jacket description.
