Sometimes you cannot avoid what has been prophesied no matter what you do. Michael Koryta weaves story within a story with fitness. Each character is well defined and integrated into the story.
When I read that Dean Koontz loves this authors books I had to try them and I was not disappointed! Really intense characters, great plot and the actors portraying the parts did a really good job! Michael Koryta is definately on my must read list from now on!
I know a lot of people liked this book so maybe it's just not my cup of tea. Too macho. Too predictable. Too beautiful people.
This story was just not that exciting to me. I think its more of a "man's" story. It was easy to finish but was glad I could move on to something else. The narration was good.
After reading Michael Koryta's Lincoln Perry series my husband and I were eager for more from this author. Unfortunately this is as far from Lincoln Perry as can be. This is a paranormal tale and not at all what we were expecting. If paranormal and not murder mystery is for you this might be good for you, but we didn't like it at all.
I just couldn't get into this book. The sound effects drove me nuts, the characters weren't people I could relate to or understand, or even like just a little, and I just kind of thought the whole thing was... overwrought.
The closest comparison I can think of is either 'Key Largo', or 'Lisey's Story', both by Stephen King. Like those two, this book is well-written, and based on interesting ideas, but overall, the only appeal is that I like the author enough to give all his books a try, but this one just didn't pan out well for me.
