I don't know what it was, but this read seemed less than I've become accustomed to from Mr. Koontz. Although I haven't read all of Koontz's large number of books, I have read enough to compare this one to (including the prior 2 books in this series). I couldn't shake the feeling that this was a HAD TO book, instead of a WANT TO book. It dragged on and on, and it seemed flat, uninteresting. I can't blame the narration, that seemed fine. I like Koontz, he's one of my favorite authors, I hate to write a review like this one, and maybe I should stay quiet (if you can't say something nice), but that's not my way. Koontz is better than this, don't judge his work by this one. Save the credit and wait for a sale.
I am not sure what planet two of the previous reviewers come from, but they must not have been listening to the same book I was. This book was splendiferous. I laughed out loud with many of the sequences between Jocko and Erica. The descriptions and narration created such a vivid image in my mind's eye that I simply could not listen to the book while driving, for fear of having a wreck. I got so tickled hearing the voice of Jocko talk about his urge to juggle, and twirl that I would rewind certain sections to hear them again. The narrator did such an incredible job through vocal dynamics of adding dimension and character to the voices. I loved this book, and the only thing I regret is that it is apparently the last in the series.
Wow, Koontz ran out of steam on this one! Seems like he was obligated to write the third & final installment to this series, and with great reluctance and absolutely no thought threw this together. Or maybe he just needs a co-author to produce something worthwhile. Don't bother.
Not up to the last two Frankenstein novels but a definite must listen. A wonderful threequel and a great story. A little weaker than one or two but still a great story.
It's simple really, I am just a guy looking to enjoy the writing and reading talents of others while raising my family the best I can, just Like most everyone else!!!
I loved the first two and this was in line with those!
One thing that stuck out was that some of the characters are strange and can seem childish but I have to accept that because the new creations are childlike in there desire to find things out! At first I had to remind Myself of that since it had been so long between the releases of 2 and 3. Even with this I give it 4.5 to 5 stars. I loved it and wish the series went on!
I had read the first two books and was excited to see the 3rd one in audio. However, the narrator left a lot to be desired. There was just something missing. Some characters were great, but unfortunately when he voiced the main two detectives, they came of as extremely hokie.
