At this point, I've heard so many bad audiobooks, if one keeps me listening, I'm happy. Although the story is pretty out there and sometimes a bit stupid, Dean Koontz knows how to tell a story. I was entertained and this book held my attention the entire time. The narrator was great. Not the best Dean Koontz but good and I gave it four stars because I wanted to keep listening. A good, not great, paranormal story that was worth the credit.
Good solid story
John Calvino was a good investigator and family man who is conflicted with the normal facts and things he can sense but not explain.
At one point when the spirit of blackthorn is moving throughout the house room to room and each person rationalizes the unexplained.
I read the short story Darkness under the Sun and when I saw this book I decided to give it a go. Plus I think Steven Weber is very talented narrator.
Very similar to the movie The Fallen. The ending was weaker than I would have expected and the spirit of the family dog was an expected contrivance. How would you communicate something that cant be explained to those around you?
Dark, Intriguing and on the edge of my seat
Nicki the detective's wife.
There was a lot of whistling on the S sounds but other than that his voice convinced me of every character!
At the end where everything comes together and answered are realized without even saying them.
Loved it. It was dark and a little hard to stomach but was interesting and a good interesting story.
This book had entirely too many characters in it. Just when you got into one of the characters another one popped up. Book did not flow and was difficult to follow. Would not recommend it.
Very well done by Steven Webber. I enjoyed. I had gotten away from Koontz as I was did not care for a few of his offerings. But I enjoyed this story and enjoyed the reader's presentation.
I run my business at home and listen to music or books when I'm working.
I wasn't going to order this at first. I'm so happy I changed my mind. Even my husband who truly dislikes audio books was even hooked on this book. I downloaded onto my Iphone so it was easy for us to listen to it when doing errands and at home doing chores.
This book grabs you from the start and holds you until the very end.
I wanted to know more about Alton Blackwood. Other than that the book was an up and down interest book. Ending was not a strong one, but Koontz does not know how to end a book. Read with trepidation.
