I'm an illustrator/concept artist currently living about an hour away from town via public transport. During these times, audiobooks, radioplays and podcasts are my best friends.
Koontz really has a way of catching your attention with the unpredictable nature of this book. I love how everything just all ties together. I love the moment when the words of the title make their appearance of this book. It's science fiction as much as it is faith.
This seems to be a book thrown together from ideas author had for more than one story for which he was searching for endings. A significant amount of the book is spent building up characters and plot. However, the ending is almost abrupt as if the buildup to climax was edited out.
OK, I have to admit I'm not even finished listening to this book yet. Only on Chapter 28 but just had to write a review.I can not put my MP3 player down! The beginning starts off just a little slow but just when you think that this will be a little boring - BAM all heck breaks loose! Koontz continues to lull you in with one twist and then another.Charactors are constantly being added and you wonder what they have to do with anything - but the DO. If the rest of the book is anything like these few chapters I have listened too, "From the Corner of His Eye" will be one of my all time favorite books I have ever read! I can't wait to finish it.The reader is EXCELLENT which only adds to the thrill of this book. I'll write again when i am done. It is a must read so far!
I loved this story and couldn't wait to get in my car to drive to work so I could hear more! it brought back fond memories of my childhood and reminded me that often children are so very wise.
This book was a moving,exciting web woven very well by Koontz. The addition of characters seems to be never ending and yet they become part of the fabric very easily. The poetic quality is excellent. Loved it.
I was a huge Dean Koontz fan, but lately have found his books to be a little too unrealistic and sappy. This book would drag in some areas and I found myself wanting to listen to one of the story lines, but not that interested in the rest. The end was hokey and too supernatural for my tastes. I didn't care much for the narrator, I recently picked up another audiobook with him as the narrator and realized that he's probably part of the reason I didn't like this book that much. I felt it was a little slow to get into this book and I didn't feel particularly partial to any of the characters in the book. I did however enjoy the plot twist and overall enjoyed the experience, but wouldn't necessarily recommend this book to others nor listen to it a second time.
I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
I am a HUGE Dean Koontz fan, have been for over 10 years. I enjoy his work very much, and I enjoy this story. I have heard other this narrator on another book and he did a swell job, but i did not like him as a narrator for this book. These people are from California and Oregon and they he has them with Southern accents, since I am from this region I know that they do not talk like this here so it was Very distracting.
Good Story Bad narrator though.
This book made me ready for the weekend to be over so that I could get back to work and finish it. There were several holes left that just seem to be asking for a sequel.
Intriguing story line, but verbiage trite at times. Story begs to be read, but there is a lingering desire for better prose to be used in the process.
