Wow, should have had more faith in the other reviewers. What a waste of time. I thoroughly enjoyed two of the "Odd" books, I hope this author isn't a "one trick pony". Buy something else, even watch the road while your driving other than waste your time.
The story was good, a little overboard with some descriptions of plants, trees, etc. The narrator was slow, paused in places not appropiate. The story line was also "wordy". This was my first Koontz and I was not impressed.
Poorly written and poorly narrated. Koontz writes likes he's using a Thesaurus to replace words -- unnecessarily. It would read better if he wasn't trying to impress us with his vocabulary. It would read better if his characters weren't so implausible. It would be hard for any narrator to read this naturally.
I like listening to books because I can escape in my mind easily if it is read well ... I enjoyed this book and it was read well it was like I was watching it in my head ...
This was a wonderful book. If you like Koontz style this one is absolutely supurb. I liked it alot, and have read more than half of his books.
I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
Again Koontz writes a great book with an interesting plot, a situation that you can envision yourself in.
The characters were believable and the pace was well maintained throughout the book.
I didn't give it 5 stars because I thought the narrator could have done a better job with some of the passages and voice he portrayed for some of the characters.
I found that during the book I kept thinking; 'This is happening in 1 day?' hmmm
It is an interesting concept but it was a little 'wordy'. I had to rewind a couple times because a change of thought happened too quick.
I agree with Simon (Luxemborg) I couldn't wait for this book to be finished. I am very disappointed with Koontz's writing this time. He just went on and on about things that had no meaning in the story. And as far as the story being engrossing or exciting as some others pointed out I found it to be neither.
I just wished I hadn't bought it.
