    1. So when a student is excited enough about a book to bring it in to loan to me, then I do my very best to read the whole thing. This is sometimes a pleasure and sometimes quite painful (Eragon comes to mind).Well, I did read all of Saint. It starts out very well--confusing in a good way, surprising, intriguing, very suspenseful--then degenerates into repetitive ideas and phrases. Throw in the obligatory salvation scene (it's Christian fiction) and I found it very tiresome.Full disclosure: I'm Chr [...]

    2. What a second great installment to The Paradise series, and by far my favorite of the series. Such a profound read of hope, faith, love, and courage to be who we are meant to be. I was not going to read this one, I was going to skip to Sinner, book 3 of the series because I did not think this one fit in, but boy was I ever wrong. This book was the perfect fit.I love love love the characters that Dekker has created for this series. So real and so deep from the inside out. All people just like you [...]

    3. 4 of 5 people found the following review helpful:4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a Five, October 6, 2006Ok already. Apparently everyone else thinks everything Dekker does is a 5. But, I don't give out many 5's. It's kind of like when they started giving out perfect scores at the Olympics. What do you do when someone does better than perfect?Showdown was magnificent and Saint came somewhat short of that. Dekker does a very good job of creating heroes who aren't always heroic. Saint struggles with iden [...]

    4. Full of mystery, action, interesting and unique Christian supernatural thriller, that kept my interest from the very beginning till the end. Another page-turner from Ted Dekker! I like it much better than Showdown. It's not so weird ☺

    5. The book starts out with this guy, Carl, waking up, no idea who he is or where he's at. He sees that he is in a room chained to a bed with his wife. A man walks in the room and gives Carl a challenge. Carl must assassinate two targets in one hour with only two bullets without killing any one else. He fails, the man kills him, his wife, and their son. This covers the first few chapters of the book, it ends up going crazygonuts. The thing about the plot is that you have to read Showdown before you [...]

    6. As is becoming routine for me, I jump into the middle of a book series. Haven't read any Ted Dekker before; thought I would give him a read. TD is a popular Christian author. I say "Christian" because his novels are found in the Christian section of most bookstores. Christian themes permeate his writing, though I would guess that some Christians would find his writing sacrilegious. Faith, and zero-point field theory, governs the use of supernatural powers in this second book of the Paradise Tril [...]

    7. The second book in Ted Dekker's Paradise Trilogy, Saint, included amazing literature but lacked in plot depth. The story begins with a man named Carl who cannot remember who or where he is. He is ordered to undertake a secret mission where he has one hour to infiltrate a hotel and assassinate two important guests. If he fails, his wife and son will die. When he returns from the mission, he finds that the mission was a sham; in reality, he has no family - he is training extensively to become an e [...]

    8. From a purely sci-fi point of view, this story was good. It kept my interest with a multitude plot of twists throughout. From a Christian perspective, I thought the book fell short of its potential.(view spoiler)[ In a discussion about the possibility of the main character Carl/Johnny having his abilities linked to belief, it's never told what he's believing in, just belief in general. Without something connected to it, belief is a string tied to a balloon that isn't there. It has to be linked t [...]

    9. In Saint, Carl Strople struggles to find his identity as an assassin. He is not certain about who he is, but his number one goal in life is to find the truth. Since he could remember, all he has been taught is how to kill as a part of an organization called the X Group. His training takes place deep inside Hungary and he spends long periods of time pushing beyond his physical limits in order to be the very best sniper known to man. This story takes Dekker's readers from Hungary to the streets of [...]

    10. The book Saint was a thriller keeping you hanging at the end of every chapter. Got to keep full focus. If you like to guess what's going to happen in the next chapter then this book is for you, because it will throw you for many loops. The main character Carl is a loving assassin that has no memory of his past but a powerful mind. His mind was said to have been more powerful before he was taken from his previous life. He has trained himself to have total control of his emotions. Until something [...]

    11. First of all, there was no indication on the outside of this book that it was part of a series. Ted mistakenly assumed that I would retain the information from reading Project Showdown. Because I didn't, all of the self-important worldbuilding (read: jacking off) in this one kind of missed the mark. I mostly read Dekker books because I like to count how many times he blatantly rips off Stephen King, Dean Koontz, or Michael Crichton. The other main reason is to rate how misogynistic the book is o [...]

    12. Great insights from Dekker:Unless you embrace you alien status and step willingly into the role (Ephesians 2:8-10), you will fade into powerless obscurity – so it is with all the faithful.Accepting your true identity means understanding that you are a stranger to this world. A freak, ostracized by the very people you want to help.I don’t think you really care about anyone other than yourself. You’ve had to focus almost exclusively on yourself in order to survive. As a result, you don’t c [...]

    13. A young man is recruited for Black Ops. He is then given invasive procedures, so he will forget his identity and all that came before the X Group. He is given the name 'Saint" and exposed to the most brutal training a human can endure. Through all these efforts to erase his past fleeting memories start to reveal a more ominous reality. The love of a woman and unbroken loyalties to his past are all he needs for survival. From Hungary to New York this book is full of action, government cover-ups, [...]

    14. This is a very exciting action packed book. It starts out with a man who is trapped in a room and doesn't know who he is. Throughout the book his memory slowly comes back and he realizes that he must kill or be killed along with the rest of the ones he loves. I would recommend this book to all readers who love mystery and action.

    15. Reseña en español completaI really enjoyed, the message was GREAT butGreat job Kelly! Because I didn't like you, I rate this book with 4.9 stars!

    16. I've read ALL of Ted Dekker books and this one just does NOT live up. It's good from the beginning, but kinda looses you 1/3 of the way through, and I was REALLY let down at the ending. It's a good story line, but just a let down.

    17. Actual Rating: 4 StarsHalf the fun of these books is theorizing over what is actually going on. Unlike the last book, I didn't guess correctly until about 2/3's of the way through the book, but I still guessed it! I have been reading this trilogy at the insistence of my boyfriend, and honestly I love being able to discuss them with him. Ted Dekker has such complex plot that can be open to interpretation. The big reveal about Carl hurt my soul a little. The death at the end of the book crushed me [...]

    18. This was the only book outside the Circle series that actually made it into the (Not So) Great Dekker Reread. Much like the Circle series, it was good, but not as great as I remember. The emotional high I remember wasn't there, and while the plot was good, I couldn't engage enough with the characters to enjoy it. That said, I actually really like the Englishman as a villain. I'm not sure why; maybe the way he plays with cliches and peoples' perceptions, or maybe the fact that he's confident with [...]

    19. Wow. An interesting plot and premise. Scary, too. We all know there is evil in this world and the forces of Satan and God are in battle with each other, but this story is riddled with twists, turns and surprises right to the end.

    20. Since becoming a published author, I've realized how important reviews are. So, when I ran across this book, Saint, I simply HAD to review it. It was amazing. This book didn't reach the level of attention his other books like Three but Saint so deserved an exceptional review.The main character Carl comes alive in the beginning and holds your interest, curiosity, and sympathy until the very end. I was so intrigued by this book that I couldn't put it downI read it in one sitting. It's a good thing [...]

    21. “Saint”-By Ted Dekker By: Kevin Tran A killer he is, killing to survive, to keep his lover safe. Carl, a 23 year old man who is trained to be the best assassin. His love, the only protection he has, and the only person whom he can trust. The key to his strength was his mind, the greatest weapon of them all. Surviving through fear, remembering the past, controlling his abnormal powers, all of this brings his life to the brink of death. “Saint”, a paradise novel of two lovers who fight to [...]

    22. Yeah, this is my favorite in The Paradise Trilogy. I remember loving it a lot the first time I read it, but not as much as its predecessor. I've really come into what I enjoy when it comes to literature. Ted Dekker balances espionage and sci-fi in a delicious way. I really enjoy it because it's believable when it shouldn't be because supernatural powers don't exist in real life and all of that good stuff. However, there's always a deeper message that Dekker wants to get across and he's used the [...]

    23. This probably wasn't the best book to read as my introduction to Ted Dekker. But it was staring at me at the used bookstore, and nothing indicated it was a second book in a trilogy, so I picked it up. I regret doing so.Carl is an assassin for a shadowy group. That group does bad things to him in order to keep him under control. He kills some people, and eventually he is sent to kill the President of the USA. Meanwhile, David Abraham (who has a son Samuel, no less,) is warning the president about [...]

    24. He is the best sniper in the world, at least thats what they tell him. Carl can't remember anything about his past, not even who he was. Ted Dekker's book, Saint, is a catching thriller that leaves you hungry for more. Following Carl, the cruelty of the X-Group, and the mystery behind Englishman will lead you through a story of thrilling action, adventure, and faith as Carl struggles to find his past. Carl is no ordinary soldier, he's been employed by the X-Group, and organization of the best as [...]
