I'm so happy that Dean Koontz can still write a suspense/horror novel with esoteric undertones. This book isn't his very best but is written so in his style that anyone who loves his work will love this great effort. All the characters had depth and the story makes you think about good and evil in only the way Koontz's work can.
Dean Koontz is the master of building up suspense...and this book is no exception. Though the book is very long, the story and plot is very good. The ending in my opinion was a little bit of a let down after all the buildup. However, I recommend it to all Dean Koontz fans and those who love this style of writing!
I found this title unworthy.
Way too many adjectives!
put you to sleep.
Koontz is a great writer, but this was like an attempt to see how long he could draw out a 200 page book....too long is the result.
Not believable. Hard to understand the path when the ghosts move time back and who is alive and who is not!
I wish I could get my money back on this one. Not recommended.
A great book is what I would expect from Koontz and that's what you get. The narrator, Dylan Baker, delivers a excellent performance that makes this 19 hour book worth it.
The style of writing is ludicrous; the plot requires abandonment of all common sense; the ending is ridiculously mushy sentimentality. There are a few redeeming features, but not enough to make it worth one's time to listen to this book.
... you'll like this book. I don't. I didn't. Rather contrived story line. Not particularly interesting. Too much gratuitous "horror". The only reasons I finished listening to this book: 1) It was one of my two monthly selections -- I'm a new subscriber and hated to waste my "investment", and 2) I was at our cabin and didn't have another audible book with me!
It's unfortunate that a great book has to be ruined by the seller! The Face is a great read once you get past the burps and glitches in Part 1 and Part 3. I've been waiting 3 months now to get a new download for this book. Hold off ordering until you check and make sure you can really listen without the burps and glitches.
