This story was great. I listen to/from work and I had a tough time putting this down. He is a master.
This is in contrast to a review I just made of the Lake House. The Lake House was the worst audiobook (out of about 100) that I had ever downloaded. I couldn't finish listening to it. The Face, on the otherhand is one of the best downloads.
I highly recommend this.
I did not find this book uplifting, provoking, nor did it make me laugh. The author's play on extraordinary happenings seem very real in other books he has written. But this one, I just couldn't buy in to it.
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!
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.
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.
