It was a lot of repetition and I got tired of it. I almost stopped listening completely, but I wanted to see if the ending was any better than the rest of it.
I've read all of his books and this took me back to his earlier writings (I like his most recent better). Just didn't care for it.
I liked the narrator -- nothing wrong with his performance. He only had
I can't think of any.........
I was just dissappointed and hope his next one is better.
I stopped reading 1/2 way through. This book was boring, disjointed, and horribly illogical. I felt like there was no point in going on because there was no plot line that gave resolution. The characters were a mishmash of underdevelopment. And I just didn't care if they got eaten by the ghost in the sub basement. Waste of time.
Retired before he published thi one.
I am neutral
I am so disappointed, Koonts is one of my favorites. Im a book junkie, I read them all once, I read the good ones several times. It is so rare for me to get aggravated and stop reading midway through. But this time I just put it down, life is too short for that crap Dean Koontz.
Overall, it was an interesting story-line and had some good parts in it, but in places it seemed to drag along and you couldn't quite figure out where Koontz was going. Had the narrator been better, I might have enjoyed this more, but listening to this guy was tough.
I love to listen to books but I don't like short little books so anything under 10 hours thumbs down :)
in the beginning it seemed like a lot of charactors to keep track of but then it all comes together it does feel a bit underdeveloped but it was still a good listen
a book that had a story that both was presented logically and a decent story
an adventure, fiction probably a koontz book
good presentation of bad story
It can only make any other koontz book look great by comparison
of all the koontz books I've ever read or listened to ( and that's plenty) this is the only one that I ever quit on prior to completion, and the only one I would ever not recommend to others.
The reading was done well
I normally love Dean Koontz books, but this one was too hard to follow and was a little too out there. There were too many characters and I never bonded with any of them.
Dean Koontz usually keeps me on the edge of my seat for the entire story. But I found myself wishing this book would end. Character development is one of Koontz's strengths but how many times can you listen to each character describe the experience with the pogramites? I found myself groaning with eat new chapter. It finally came together with an interesting ending but I almost gave up on it before the end.
I love Dean Koontz but this wasn't his best.
Peter Berkrot is a talented narrator. I would listen to him again.
I was really disappointed int this book. Dean Koontz is better than this.
This book felt like an outline for a good idea without thought on substance. He could have accomplished the same in half the time.
Possibly, but I will read some of the reviews first. Should have this time, for sure.
Narrator needs to work on his pronunciation. ie., It's wall, not wool.
Koontz, if he indeed wrote this, has an excellent grasp of the language.
Save your dough...Pass on this one.
I didn't like this one at all. The reader was fine but the story was just aweful. It started off pretty good but then it took off in about five different directions and ended with some kind of off the wall explanation that was just ridiculous. Koontz has done a lot better than this. I would say this is one of his worst.
Another great story from one of my favorite authors and Peter Berkrot did a fabulous job with narration. 77 Shadow Street was suspenseful and yet in the Koontz style had very funny lines and situations. The mixer of spookiness and humor is great! I highly recomend this story.
