This is by far the best D. Koontz book I've read thus far! I reread it every few years and its like reading it for the first time! I love the wit
It's really hard to say-- I love Dean Koontz and my own ability to imagine, but Stephen Lang does a fantastic job and I would be lying if I said his interpretation hasn't colored my reading.
I can't think of another book off the top of my head I would compare this to, honestly. It's such a complex story and so developed and personal, it's hard for me to find one that could match it.
He definitely helps in personalizing even the minor characters in a way that I probably wouldn't have one my own.
Absolutely, and I've listened to it many times over the years.
I would definitely recommend this book-- I already have to a lot of my family. It does some have some adult themes, some violence, but it also has some of the best in humanity in it.
And he does it again! Here is yet another really great book by the Koontz. He really makes you fall in love with the characters and gets you inside the story. The storyline is fun and entertaining but I think we all really need to give it up to the narrater on this one too. He did such a great job in keeping portraying each character so well. Very good narration and I look forward to listening to more from him as I believe he is one of the best I've heard. Great job guys! Thanks for an exciting audio.
My favorite character was Junior. Koontz did a great job in getting inside the head of a psychopath and the narrator was awesome in raising the intensity in his voice while doing Juniors parts.
The basic plot of the story is interesting but it's written as if being paid by the word. I found myself fast forwarding frequently – especially toward the end of the book. At times, some of the exact words were repeated and events described again as if it were written as a serial. A lot of the time is spent espousing the author's beliefs and philosophy. While that may have been interesting the first or even the second time, by the 30th or 40th it was really old. I like a lot of Dean Koontz's books, but this is definitely not one of his better ones
