I finished the book and I enjoyed it. It was sort of pleasant to only have tow or three jarring moments in what could have been tragic. On the other hand, it was a bit idealistic.Wish they had someone else reading it, her voice was a bit much.
I am going to buy the other two books in the series.
Voice a little too 16ish for me.
It has two and I will buy them.
I love Dean Koontz books. Have read most, but I am going back to find those I have not read and this is one of them.
First, I did not like the performance, his female voices really irritated me, but all were just a bit off somehow.
The story itself was just ok, part of the way through you knew what was coming and it just became going through the motions at that point. I wanted more, more from the characters, and more from the story. So much possibility, but disappointing.
Now I remember why I liked it so much the first time I read it. It is a good story. Koontz is admittedly an idealist at times, but I just loved the story.
I really enjoyed the narration and the characters. Most of the story was original and fantastic; it did drag on in some places though.
Overall, I enjoyed and would recommend. However, I did not like the ending.
There were parts of this book that scared to heck out of me. I was so creeped out at times I had to stop listening for a bit, I listen a lot while I am running, alone, yep, could not do that with this book, at least not my early morning in the dark runs.
My only wish for this book, a better ending. I will not elaborate on that.
Knowing it was the sequel to The Shining.
Dan, he is awesome.
I enjoyed this from beginning to end, the story and the characters. Really wanted it to keep going.
In my top three. I loved it! I will go and listen to his other books, this was my first book by Joe Hill.
Really not sure.
I have not listened to her before, I did enjoy her though.
I liked the idea of the book, I found it unique.
I really wanted to like it, I enjoyed Swan Song and although Speaks the Nightbird is not something I would normally read, I wanted to give it a try.
Here is my problem, the main character, Matthew Corbett is a bore, and whiny, and I just did not like him.
Some things were just too much and unnecessary.
I will say that I loved the performance, Edoardo Ballerini is fantastic, he is the only reason I kept listening.
I would listen again, and just might do so right away. The narrator was good and the story was lovely.
Sister - because she was strong but flawed and a realist.
When Sister and Paul connected
I really enjoyed this book. There were things about it that were dated, but the story was lovely and haunting.
Said in a few other reviews, and I have to agree. Dean Koontz is back. This book had me from the beginning. Frightening and supernatural as his past books, I really enjoyed it and it certainly kept me entertained during a long road trip. Happy to still be a Koontz fan!
