Not a waste of a credit. This book was not one of his best, but what I would consider "decent". Some of Koontz's books are very memorable (Intensity, Watchers, any of the Odd books) but this one I'm not so sure.
It's not one to avoid, but if you haven't "read" some of his others, I'd read those first.
This one kept me in my car and some times late to work..Yes, there are a lot of characters to follow, however I think he does a good job on captivating the readers attention. I would have to say this is out of his norm but none the less I'm glad I used my credits on this one.
For the most part the main story about the mysterious creatures was good. The other side characters and stories were distracting and for the more part didn't really go along with the storyline. The ending was very disappointing. I feel it was rushed. There were too many loose ends. I think Dean Koontz needs to rewrite the ending. This was my first Dean Koontz novel and while I understood what he was trying to do with it, I think that most of his readers/listeners could have ended the story better. Three stars for the first of the story one star for the ending.
true koontz style. Great listen. Was pleased all the way through.
Cant understand for the life of me the bad reviews. What were the LISTENING to???!!
Not the typical Koontz book. Ok story but a horrible ending that looks like it was intentionally left open to create a series. This was less than entertaining
Reading Breathless was wonderfully fun and entertaining. This book filled me with wonder, a reminder of the struggle between Good and Evil, Right and Wrong; as well as the beauty of whatever life each of us has.
I found this story very entertaining, fun and fast paced with strong characters and in some cases evil characters with confused hearts and minds. Dean Koontz has done it again.
