The crazy twist near the middle.
The voice of the narrator of the monster.
Absolutely, but since I know it would still be there, I was able to walk away from it at times.
But that's the chance you take with Koontz. One book captures you from beginning to end and then next can be sooooooo weird. This wasn't my favorite Koontz.
I expected it to be longer. It's excellent like Dean Koontz is.
He was incredible. Really has a wonderful knowledge of acting out parts.
I did listen to it in 1 sitting. It's only and hour and 1/2
I would love to read more short stories form Mr. Koontz. This story had a message, a feel, and a life of its own.
Can't go wrong with this story.
The World According to JimG944
I rate Darkness Under the Sun 5 of 5 stars. A short story but every bit a Koontz story. I can summarize this book in one word: CREEPY. Highly recommended for a quick read.
Good story. Short. Creepy.
When the bully was confronted
No. This was my first time listening to Steven Weber. I would definaltely seek other audio books with him performing.
Watch whom you befriend
Overall It was a good book. Wish it were a little longer.
I always love his books, this just didn't get ahold of me until deep into the book.
Books brighten the soul - reading is never a waste of time...or in this case being told a story.
I've always loved Dean Koontz, and this story is no exception. It ties into another novel of his, and the two dovetail beautifully. Koontz always tries to get the readers to appreciate the nobility of the human spirit, but to see that it has to deal with the everyday world, and sometimes make compromises. Beautifully done story.
I hadn't read Koontz in years. I've kind of gotten away from the genre, but I enjoyed creepy tale. The introduction really grabs you, and the main character is likeable.
I think Steven Weber's voice acting skills make him a superb narrator for audiobooks, and he never fails to deliver. His work on this short story was very compelling. So, in that, I rank it highly. Now that I've listened to a couple of Koontz's short stories, I think I see where this form is good for him. He can tend to 'wax poetic' a bit, so the short form keeps him on his toes and keeps the story moving. This one was enjoyable and lifted characters and storyline from a previous novel of his, which is always fun to connect the dots.
