I love the characters, the dog, and the story. Also, the villains are just too believable!
Koontz, a remarkable storyteller, manages to convey many truths about government and politicians in America revealing many layers of ideas as the story unfolds. Dark Rivers of the Heart is not only entertaining but thought provoking in its entirety.
I first read this book back when it was first published, and when I saw that it was available on Audible I jumped at it. The story is just as good as I remember it. That said, Anthony Heald is a terrible narrator, ok maybe not "terrible" but his style of reading and "flighty" tone of voice seems better suited to reading a children's book than a Dean Koontz novel.
I'd give the story itself a solid 9/10 but the narration only a 6/10
less perverse sex and foul language. I used to love reading Koontz but this is the last book of his I will buy.
The main character's voice was wimpy;like a little old man; not a strong young herol.
disappointment. Both in the story line and in the narrater,
Audible needs to provide a rating system re: sex, language & violence.
The story and the narrator.
All of them.
I have listened to many audio books and this is by far the most disappointing.
No, I prefer audio
Yes, well enough
Loved the description of the storm in the desert.
No, Koontz has other books that are much better
This one is on the low end
She was okay
No, this book is boring to a degree
This book just goes on and on plus the pervs make it gross.
I have listened to almost every Koontz book. My favorites would be Watchers, Lightening, Seize the Night, Fear Nothing, Velocity, Life Expectancy, From the Corner of His Eye, The Bad Place, The Face, Trixie the Big Life of a Little Dog, The Husband, By the Light of the Moon just to name a few
Riveting, entertaining, captivating
Keeping you on the edge is what Koontz does best. This story is full of every type of suspense you can think of. Spencer is not your typical hero having baggage that comes with him everywhere he goes but you can't help rooting for him.
Anthony does a good job of inflections when they are needed, it helps to really get involved in what is happening in the story.
Definitely a one sitting book - glad I had it on my IPOD.
This was your typical Dean Koontz - he of course as in all of his stories has a dog hero in the story, you gotta love it.
Though the book was written a while ago, it is timely given the recent developments regarding an out of control government (NSA) spying on its own citizens.
