Great Dean Koontz book! Very entertaining! Well worth the credit! This is my 4th Dean Koontz book, and it is my second favorite next to Twilight eyes.
Except for a slow beginning - lots of time spent with characters hovering over dead bodies - the story is great. Good suspense, scary (& sort of plausible) idea.
Kneel Before Zod!!
Wild ass story.
Very good, at times I thought there was more than one person. He does a very good job changing his tone and pitch.
No extreme reaction, but it was a very interesting story.
It took a long time to figure out what the monster was, and how to try and defeat it. Koontz gave clues, but not obvious ones. Made the story more interesting.
The pace at which it developed.
When the were talking to the monster via computer terminals.
I'd take the English guy who wrote the book (book title "The Ancient Enemy")
Good, solid Koontz book. You can't go wrong.
My taste vary. I love a good, blood stained horror, but also a well written kids story. Lots of Sci-Fi, but also Hist. Fiction. No boring!!!
In our history there have been several Mass Vanishings and this is Koontz spin on that.
Like in most Koontz books, I am amazed on how much and many different things he throws into one book. This story as aspects of John Carpenter's The Thing, The Blob, Ghost Busters and Sphere in it. You will meet Prehistoric Animals, Demons, shape shifters, Mythological Beasts, bloated corpses, mutilations, etc. There are discussions on Mass Vanishings, Religion, First Encounters, Mythology, Biological Warfare, Poltergeists, The Ancient Enemy, Genetics, The Bermuda Triangle, Voodoo, and Devil Worship.
I liked the book and would recommend it as good entertainment. What kept it from getting five stars was that there got to be too much shape shifting and finding of bodies. That got a little old and there was one really stupid part in the book, which he should have cleaned up. This giant evil moth the size of an eagle attacks the window of a house they are in and then minutes later they decided to go outside and of course it attacks and kills a man.
Some have complained about the narrator, but I thought he was very good and did not notice what they were complaining about.
My favorite Koontz books are: The Bad Place, Lightning, Dragon Tears, By the light Of The Moon, Life Expectancy, Forever Odd and Frankenstein: Lost Souls.
I liked the story very much. The movie left so much out that it could have been a two part movie.
I'm a fan of Koontz so I'm surprised I don't like this book. I actually stopped listening about halfway through. I think the characters are boring and the plot was slow. I think part of my dislike is the narrator. He drags out the words which was so annoying. I read reviews before I buy a book, almost everyone liked this book so it could be me. It's still on my ipod so I might give it another try later on.
The narrator does sound like Daffy Duck! Like Daffy doing a 40's era radio drama. Because of this, the story was less scary and more campy.
Ridiculous story narrated ridiculously. Poorly developed characters finding bodies all over a California town. Dissapointing story by Koontz. Narration was hammy.
