The most gripping book I've ever read! Keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. You will find yourself holding your breath. Truly intense!
the book grabs you and keeps you at the edge of your seat. its a must read!! if you love mystery murder twisted but yet hopeful and love books. not love between a boy and girl but a love like family
Love gritty mystery thrillers.
This book went beyond my expectations. It was fast paced and thought provoking all the while disturbing. I loved the balance between darkness and light. If you like psychological thrillers about serial killers, this book is for you.
You know, stuff and what-not.
Yes, because I enjoy spoken word over print.
The battle with the dogs.
The narrator added inflections at the end of lines, didn’t change her tempo to match the situation. she read at a fast tempo, and seemed to read too much in one breathe. Kate is no Mare Winningham.
It was, but the tempo made it easy to stop and take a brain break.
This is my first Knootz book, and it was decent.
I like history and biography, novels too. I do have a thing for zombie books as well. I need crappy thrillers now and then.
Some intense moments, but long. Actually, I like Koontz attention to detail. Parts of this are good. But I'm tired of authors telling us the crazed or quirky thoughts of serial killers. I don't really buy it.
No. Goes on far too long. Too much detail on trivial things - like the Aspirin isn't just on the spice rack but we need to hear every single other spice jar. Really?
Yes. There's been a number of good books from Koontz - this just isn't one of them.
Almost anyone. She reads in a fake whisper that is annoying. Her clippy pacing and then drag out the last word is also repetitive and irksome.
Intense wild ride.
Chyna, was great but so was Vess.
I have read about 25 of Koontz's books and I never cease to be amazed at how different he can be. One time soft and family kind of stories and the next so off the wall or intense it seems like another writer. This is one of the most intense I have read and it almost never lets up. Everything perfectly in line and so well executed that I could see it all happening. Took my breath away.
I like books that are thrilling, spooky, funny, bloody, deep, mysterious, smart, or any combination.
This story is certainly intense, from a few pages in, all the way to the end. It's certainly not for the squeamish.
The narration (audiobook) is spot on! Ms. Burton was perfect for this story, with attitudes and inflection, and the creepiest whispering that I absolutely loved.
This Koontz book had the fewest characters and story lines that I remember, but no supporting cast was necessary. One female lead, with nothing to lose and a single goal - saving someone that she has never met, and unsure that person even existed. One male bad guy. The worst of the worst that people couldn't see coming. Good looking, pleasant, RV driving psychopathic serial killer. Again, not for the faint of heart.
The twist near the end had me yelling "no, no, no...!" even though I knew all would be ok eventually, I was so caught up in the escape scene that I felt like I was right there, in the middle of the intensity, ready for the relief from sustained anxiety... but one more twist! It was perfect.
I highly recommend listening to this as an audiobook. I'm sure that down the road I'll listen to it again.
If you read my reviews of Dean Koontz's vast library, you would know I am a former fan of Koontz's work. Most of his books are redundant and inane, however this book is one of his finest.
This book is one of the best edge of your seat books that I have ever read and listened too. The narration also gets top marks,
