Dean Koontz never disappoints... A riveting read... Excellent characters and the performance an easy listen.
Bending Nature: A new kind of vampire novel
Probably my second favorite audio book.
The monkey scene, when they are chasing Christopher Snow. It was very intense.
He really brings the characters to life, especially the main character. He also does great with female voices.
It held my attention. I never cried, but I did laugh a few times.
The audio book is outstanding and a must listen to, IMO.
I love Koontz's humor. For me, this is a mystery story with quirky and intelligent characters -- much like all of his books.
Have, Do, Will Again. I have given it as gifts on CD and Tape and also Audible. Truly love this story.
Bobby Halloway is very believable. Keith is a fantastic reader. He MAKES this story so much better, and it is a great story. If the often rumored 3rd and final book ever gets written and published, PLEASE, dear God let Keith agree to read it too. It just would not be the same with a new voice. If He doesn't want to, Dean contact me, I do a pretty good impression!
Have done it.
Buy it. Buy the Sequel. Write a letter to Koontz and request the third book to be written!
The author assaults you with the internal thinking of Chris at times where quick action is required. I take it that it was meant to build tension, but all it did was make me mad. I already knew that his tormenter was a monkey from earlier dialogue, but he seemed stupid to that fact.
Believe me, if I were one of the characters in this book and knew there as danger that my friend didn't know about, I wouldn't be wasting time with inane descriptions about how I was so upset that I couldn't have children or how the monkey sat there eating a tangerine; I would cut right to the chase and give my conclusions and warnings.
I quit the book because listening to it felt too much like punishment and I had better things to do with my time than waste it by listening and getting madder by the minute.
If this is what passes for good writing, then I will pass on anything more by Koontz.
Had high hopes based on reviews, but this story took too long to get to the point - and not in a suspenseful way. I felt like the plot was very matter-of-fact without the usual twists and turns I expect from Dean Koontz.
I really like both this book and the second one (Seize The Night) and have always wished Koontz had finished the story.... Maybe he will someday.
This is one of Koontz milder tales, but with enough mystery and gore to keep you going. The narrator does a fine job with it, his mellow, soft approach fits the characters.
great book but I really wish there were more books in this series. The plot and characters are compelling and when Orson went missing I couldn't stop listening.
I really liked the story line; however, I got a bit board.in the middle of the book. it quickly got me back when Snow was talking with the Deputy at his house.
