These two books on Chris Snow, true or not are wonderful. I would like to know if there will be another book or and ending book? Don't just leave us us hanging. They are wonderful books, and your writing is outstanding. Thank you
The characterizations are wonderful, the story is interesting, and there is plenty of levity for what is a somewhat gritty story
The twists and turns... things I didn't see coming made it really engaging
No holds barred
It started out fast, hit a lull, then scorched through to the end... hard to put down once the lull was over
Read the first book first, so you have more background. :)
Not really. The first novel in this two part series was absolutely phenomenal, one of the best works of literature I've ever read. Not just a "horror story" or a "mystery", but truly great literature, up there with the very best of Stephen King (i.e. Hearts in Atlantis) or even older greats like Fitzgerald. This book, however, is just a typical crappy kinda-horror story.
It should have lived up to the first story or never been written.
Wasn't really a great scene.
Not a chance. Even reading it was a mistake. Kind of the literary equivalent of Highlander 2, or the Matrix sequels, or the Star Wars Prequels: A work so bad it damages the enjoyment of the earlier works.
Rumor has it that Dean wasn't happy with this novel either, and that he's waiting to finish it with a third when he can really do it justice. I hope so!
Maybe in the future. It was a really good book.
I loved the time travel aspect. I was wondering what would happen next at every turn.
He didn't talk too low, I hate having to turn the volume up really loud to hear the narrator over road noise.
I found myself sitting in my garage not wanting to get out of my truck after my commute.
The plot was not jaw-dropping, but the writing was what I always expect, and get, from Mr. Koontz.
The story line was fine, but the writing brings the reader into the extra-ordinary world of the characters, defining the world of the paranormal in the readers mind like Koontz and a few others do so well. Good read.
Keith Szarabajka " voice on "Christopher Snow" Character .was spot on.
The Atmosphere and uncertainty was crafted so good , i felt as if i was on a Journey with "Christopher Snow" and all the elements that came his way i felt it .
The Monkey Scene , cause "Mr Snow" Character shows sympathy for them in a way and their unfortunate faith .
at the very end , but am not gonna spoil it .
Dean Koontz" created such an interesting "Character" Christopher Snow is one of the Koontz best .
I would absolutely recommend this book. It's a wonderful tale. Koontz brings you into a world that could be, and sends you through the mind and heart of a true hero.
I wouldn't say on the edge of my seat, but it most certainly kept my interest. My concern for the characters felt real. I found myself in my truck, telling the characters to watch out.
His tone of voice really fits the character. At least my vision of him. He's very low key with a big heart, and Keith brings it out for you to identify with Chris.
Yes, definitely. Rarely do I wish my commute were longer, but, this was one of those times.
I love the Easter Eggs. I read the Odd Thomas series before this, and now I'm waiting for Oddy and Chris to meet.
Live near Yosemite National Park. Listen to Audible books while hiking.
Dean Koonz writes horror novels. Some reviewers have indicated this story is a sci fi story. It isn’t. There are some interesting sci fi ideas and scenarios described in the story, but nothing is made of them except horror. Think “Freddie” from another dimension or another time or another something. No effort is made to portray the sci fi ideas realistically. They just happen, like magic. How can this be? “Paradox,” we’re told. Mongo Jerry thought this was crap. Mongo Jerry is correct. As far as the reader is concerned, he has a nice voice and inflects well, but he reads each sentence too fast. He pauses well between sentences, but reads each sentence so quickly he sometimes slurs his words, especially during exciting narratives. Get ready to slew back to re-listen to what the reader just said to make sure you got it – especially when things get really exciting. That is the very last thing you want to do during exciting scenes. The book is worth the price but don’t be mislead: Dean Koonz writes horror novels.
I love to read a well written book! Audible has made my life ever better by having process that allows me to enjoy a good book on the road!
I never get tired of Dean what a great read can't put it down again
I have listened to this book several times. One of my all time favorites!
If you like other Dean Koontz books, you'll really like it. It has the scary fantasy aspect that Stephen King's "It" has.
When Christopher Snow is investigating the empty base housing.
No, I didn't want it to end!
