Dean Koontz is wildly successful at bringing Frankenstein's monster into the 21st century. The familiar mix of tragic, heroic, and always compelling Koontz characters will keep you turning the pages--or glued to your iPod.
Koontz once again proves me is not only a brilliant writer, but a master story teller. Whereas Mary Shelly tells the tale, Koontz puts faces and lives to Shelly's creations.
I couldn't wait to find out the next part of this series when this book ended. Koontz, unlike his other books, does not go on and on with extended descriptions, which got annoying fast. This book painted it's scenes so visually and cleanly, I was engrossed from first chapter. The reader is excellent and performs this reading so well, I want to hear other books from him.
Written and read well with limited awe. Blended well new and old, introducing easily loved characters and exponding on the familars. Suprising science fiction undertones with expected horror genre backdrop.
I expected this to be an update of the original. I was very surprised to discover that it is more like a sequel. Excellent characters and an ending that made me mad as hell that I have to wait for part 2! Scott Brick, as usual, is an outstanding performer.
I like Dean Koontz and I will read more of his work. The Frankenstein Prodigal Son ended with a
His voice inflections kept the characters distinct and the story interesting.
Read the book, you may find it interesting.
In a nut shell, this book is just not that good. However, there are some entertaining aspects. The narrator in Prodigal Son makes listening to it at least bearable (I am a fan of Scott Brick narrations). I am partially writing this review to ward readers off from the whole series. If you are like me and have an almost obsessive compulsion to finish a story, don't start reading this series. You will waste time and money. The second book was atrociously hilarious and the only way I could get through it was to pretend the narrator was Patrick Warburton and this was an eight hour joke.
