First I must say the Narrator of this book was excellent, unfortunately the book was not. I realie that Koontz is like King, wordy, and his descriptive powers are excellent, however......
I struggled over the ramblings and back and forth confusion of the first 4 hours and then became maddened by the gross charactors and finally, upon the beginning of the second part, after already suffering 9 hours of book, I QUIT! I Deleted! I suggest you avoid all the hassle and just go on to another book.
I don't know how he does it, but you believe his strange twists--there's just enough there to snag you. Got a little wordy at times, but never dull, and never easy to put it down.
I liked this book a lot. Koontz is elequent in his descriptions of places and things to the point of being too verbose and I hope his next book is not so wordy. It does distract from the story but not to the point of ruining the suspence. I couldn't stop walking around with the ear plugs for days.
I didn't like any of these characters. The setting is totally unbelievable. Koontz goes overboard with description. He seems to feel that he must state everything two or three times in different ways for the reader to get it. His descriptions are well beyond what is needed to give the reader a good feel for the setting. I also did not like the narrator, and if I had to listen to one more sarcastic "Ha, Ha" I would scream.
A little bit lighter than his books lately (not as gory!). Interesting premise about anarchy. One of his best!
Disappointing effort by Dean Koontz. He seems to fill the book with meaningless words and long, repetitive, overly colorful descriptions that contribute nothing to the story. I grew weary of hearing the weather described over and over with silly metaphors, and found myself wanting to just get to the end of it.
