For sure, busy buying another Dean Koontz one now. Peter Berkrot did a good job, though admittedly I compare all narrators to the Ron Perlman when he did the The Strain - which was brilliant. Mr Berkrot did a good job, his voice changes per character help identify who;s who in heavy dialogue - without overacting their parts.
Works well as an audiobook. The plot is unchallenging, so don't expect any thing more than a good ride. Perfect to listen to when stuck in traffic without incurring a fender bender.
Odd, i did think this could become a TV series, though limited to a 10 episode single season. The plot's unchallenging enough and bounces equally between characters for it to be comfortably cast with B-Grade actors.
There are some tough reviews on this book, but if you can just enjoy it for what it is (a typical Koontz yarn), then it's worth the download.
The book was narrated perfectly and it was an enthralling story that I just couldn't put down. Dean Koontz is by far my favorite author and I hope others enjoy this book as well
A solid Dean Koontz, though not his best. I don't know why the earlier works of Koontz hold a magical place in my memory, but they do. The last 10 years of Koontz have been less than magic, although his writing remains captivating. There seems to be a trend of starting off with a bang, and fizzling out a little by the end. This one fell into that category for me, even though an average novel of Dean Koontz's is far better than the best works of other horror writers, with the exception of Master King, of course.. You get a little of his supernatural, a little mystery, and a little violence in 77th Shadow Street. As always, Koontz is worth a credit
The narration by Peter Berkrot was very good. The story had potential but lacked something. I enjoyed it but!!!!! There was just so much description of gore in every room. You already knew it was there but yet he went on and on about it. Maybe he was trying to fill up pages. I'm not sorry I read the book, it just wasn't one of my favorites.
Not DK's best, but interesting none the less. As they say on these interwebs ..."meh..."
I would never have published such a poor book
Waste of time would like money back.

Characters felt too juvenile and superficial.

Professional, versatile, and skilled.
I listened to half the book but found it little engaging. The characters were juvenile, the story depends sooo much on visuals that it would work as a mini series or movie, but not as a book the way it is written. THE ONE, the evil in the book is kind of silly.
The first Dean Koontz book I read was Lightening - Loved it. I've enjoyed many Dean Koontz books and several he wrote under pseudonyms - but this book was a total disappointment. I'm sure I'll read and / or listen to more DK books. If this had been my first, it might have been my last. Narration was good.
I think there were pieces of what might have been a good story but nothing held together - I began to wonder if DK really wrote it.
There was no favorite scene since the scenes seldom connected to anything except the next scene - jumped around so it was hard to keep track of what was happening where and when.
