I wasn't sure exactly what to expect but I was pleasantly suprised. It kept my interest and I enjoyed the twists and turns. Definitely recommend.
This is a good book and I enjoyed the reader as well. I find Dean Koontz to follow a similar style and formula for many of his books, yet they are still entertaining. This wasn't quite as good as "Odd Thomas," but still enjoyable. I found myself rooting for the main character and his family on many occassions.
This is a really great "listen", I always enjoy most of his books, but, this one goes to the top of my list. When I listen to a really good book, I feel like I have met new friends, and I am always a little sad when the book ends. This book falls into that catagory.
If you like Dean Koontz, you will love this one!
This book has tongue-in-cheek humor, sumptuous language and imagery and suspense. His joy of writing will awe you. I am never disappointed by Koontz's style and content, and the narration is terrific. I highly recommend Life Expectancy to both neophyte and Koontz regular readers. It's a fun read and/or listen.
EACH DEAN KOONTZ AUDIBLE I LISTEN TOO I AM MORE IMPRESSED. I LOVED READING HIS BOOKS BUT MOST OF ALL I TRULY ENJOY LISTENG TO THEM. I READ THIS BOOK BEFORE BUT ENJOYED IT SO MUCH I HAD TO GET THE AUDIBLE. THERE WAS SO MUCH MISSED THAT IT WAS AGAIN LIKE A FIRST TIME. WITH MY BOOKS THAT I TRULLY ENJOYED READING I USED TO DATE THEM FOR FUTURE REFERENCE TO READ AGAIN. NOW I JUST HAVE TO TRANSFER TO MY LISTENING DEVICE AND TAAH DAAH I AM LISTING TO IT AGAIN IF I WISH TO. PLEASE KEREP WRITING YOUR DELICIOUS BOOKS THAT KEEP US TURNING PAGES OR BETTER YET POPPING ONTO OUR LITTLE MP3'S. I TRULY ENJOYED THIS BOOK AGAIN. MAZIE >^..^<
This is one of the best and most enjoyable books ever.
good production values, great relationship with the reader -- just enough clues to keep you happy and just enough surprises to keep you amazed.
Yes this book was a tad slow at times, and a bit more unrealistic than most, but it was just as addicting to listen to as all his others.
I listen to books while doing housework. The more interesting the book, the more housework gets done!
By the time I finished the first half, I couldn't take any more.
This is a book of disasters, one after the other. It is a prime example of what is considered a good modern novel. Things keep getting worse and worse for the hero. I guess at some point it will get so bad that you think he must fail, and then he recoups and wins the day.
Aargh. I can't stand it. I like to see a hero have at least a chance of coming through. And the hero is so likeable and charming.
It is masterfully written, with powerful imagery, and a punch you in the throat plot.
But I'm not going to finish it now. Maybe after a long spell of quieter books I can screw up the courage to come back to it.
I could NOT get past the beging 45 minutes or so. That was before I went camping and everyone left me awake. Captive listener out of bordom. This book was so silly, funny, over the top, and good. I will never look at a clown or high flier without remembering this book and wondering about the happy-v-psycotic idea. I really would love to hear the story of how this book got thought up!!
