This book sucked. Koontz keeps putting out garbag book after garbage book. Nothing scary about this book at all and I didn't get the ending at all. Not waisting anymore of my money on these boring books
This just might be the scariest book by Koontz that I have read to date; wow!
As always, Koontz delivers on suspense, unique characters, humour, and overall excellent storytelling.
Yes the story is good and the narrortor is good keeps your attention.
story line is good
no but certainly would again.
I've enjoyed Koontz books in the past. However, this was one of the most predictable, cliche', and artless books I've ever suffered through. It is the sort of book one can clearly see is a rip-off of the 90s movie Fallen. That movie, although not great, was much better than this "story."
I usually like Dean Koontz, but this book was terribly slow - so slow it was really hard to pay attention to what was being read. All of the action happened in the last hour, and it took way too long to get to that point.
I appreciate that a young girl was showing off a big vocabulary in the book, but Dean Koontz also seemed to be showing off his love of big words and lofty descriptions - all completely unnecessary and just adding to the number of hours it took to get through this.
Steven Weber did a great job as narrator - I would listen to him again. Big fan! :)
I have really enjoyed Dean Koontz's books in the past and have read probably most of them. But this... is so boring and stupid. This is the first time I have almost given up on a book and it took all my effort not to. I'm giving myself a pat on the back for finishing because it wasn't worth it - a complete waste of time.
Certainly not his best, Koontz simply provides an entertaining and spooky break from any "heavy reading". A Girl Scout campfire could have produced the same.
I have always been a fan of Dean Koontz but this book was terrible. There was barely any dialog, it consisted almost entirely of the characters thinking and dreaming. I stuck it out to the end but it never improved, My sister couldn't make it past the first half. I miss his more exciting books like Phantoms, Lighting, Mr. Murder, Watchers and so many others. The first Odd Thomas book was good but after that they also became less dialog and too much introspection. Pass on this one, save your credit.
Don't bother. I hate the fact that I wasted money on this. Listened to the first hour and thought it was the biggest bore ever. Darn, I've got a long drive ahead and nothing to listen to,
