I haven't read any Koontz in years but I decided to check out the Moonlight Bay stories. The plot was great. Supernatural, scifi, Government conspiracy. However the the books contain way too many highly detailed interjections. You could fall asleep reading the paragraph long description of how the grass sways when the breeze hits it. Otherwise a very good read. Keith Szarabajka did a great job bringing the book to life. Great emotion and seamlessly jumped from character to character maintaining each ones intonation.
It's possible the inability to quickly skim through the slow parts, made me give a lesser rating. I feel like I may have enjoyed this more if it was paper in my hands.
I stopped listening for a week around chapter 12-15 I think.
I was annoyed with the details and grew impatient that the story wasn't progressing quickly enough.
When I finally committed to finishing it, I was happy I did. I liked the characters and the story overall.
I have many more favorite Koontz titles over this one. I will read the next one in this series should there be one.
Should have stopped with the first, a bit sloppy here and replayed the monkey/ bungalow scene. I hoped for better.
Audiobook addicted norwegian. There can be only one King, and his name is... Stephen :)
Koontz has crafted a nightmare scenario in Moonlight Bay, and this sequel to "Fear Nothing" is just a good.
Thos only thing that is a little irritating is two sequences that go on for far too long, one early on and one in the middle.
But all in all a good scifi/horror story, and it's well read.
I have listened to the Christopher Snow stories several times over the past few years. I really wish Dean Koontz would finish the next book in the series
Keith Szarabejka is a terrific reader, great voice, pacing etc. Of course, Dean Koontz is a compelling writer, but the buildup went on for a very long time and then we never really found out much about the strange goings on at Wyvern. The ending was a bit of a fizzle. Still, I am judging Koontz by Koontz, he's a 5-star writer no question. Even so, I would have preferred another 50 pages to answer some very intriguing questions.
Geek, FanGirl, into Supernatural Horror and the Macabre. Favorite authors: Mark Tufo, Stephen King, John Sandford, Darynda Jones, Z. Recht.
I have been reading Koontz for years. I love almost everything he writes, but this little series is great. Things I didn't expect happen throughout the book. Makes me think twice about beach living.
The voice was excellent for this story. As for the story ? Hey... It's Dean Koontz! He had the ability to take it right to the edge and not completely overload you with too much gore. great suspense. Xlt story!
Numbingly boring. Endless description of minute details. Sophomoric metaphors out the wazoo. Monotonous narration. I can't see what anyone likes about this dull-as-dirt book. I might just ask for my credit back.
