This was a joy to listen to. I was a little aprehensive after reading the description, but after hearing great things about this book, I decided to give it a try and was glad I did. It was a great listen, moved right along and kept you hooked right to the end.
The story line is realy great, and the narator is great
I wouldn't be so corny in calling the elders and the second generation vampires that are not really vampires.
No I have'nt, but he is good
No, not really
I realize that you would want to capitalize on what is hot. But vampires and vampires and no actual vampire in sight. I know, they explain what a vampire is in the book, yea yea, whatever. If your'e going to make stuff up, make it up all the way. All authors that write vampire stories should read Bram Stokers Dracula and Stephen Kings Salems Lot. Stick with a traditional vampire and if you feel the need to make something else up, by all means, do so, but give it a different name. Current authors have given vampires such a broad scope, next they will be saying "see that wall over there, its a vampire!!
But the book is a good read.
Brought earlier books into focus
All the pendergast books by Lincoln and Child
Awesome as always
These books move me from cover to cover, but there was one that i can't tell you about because it would be a spoiler
Must read for Pendergast fans
I would like to listen to this book, but it locks up my ipod classic at the end of each chapter
People that like corny.
Not make it corny, I know he can, because I have read a lot of his books. Either that or made a few small changes and turned it into a comedy. But then I wouldn't have purchased it.
Too many, but that would have left a short story instead of a novel, probably an improvement.
Just really disappointed.
Yes, someday. I don't like listening to books to soon because I tend to get ahead of the book in my head, but this is one I will listen to again someday.
As to why, its a great story, set in a great location with all the things a thriller needs to be great.
Yes! Although I did see some of the things coming, (a disadvantage to reading a lot), there were enough surprises to keep me guessing.
If I have one favorite character, I consider the book a failure. This book was not a failure.
What I liked best? I managed to finish listening to it. Now, mind you, I like long books, with lots of characters and a broad story line, but. This book was disjointed to the point that when you reentered a part of the storyline, you spent several minutes of listening going, Huh!
I think I just answered what I liked least.
Kept it more together.
I don't really pay too much attention to the narrator unless they are really great or really bad, he was neither. He could have been more distinctive between characters, sometimes you would lose track of who was who, but that could have been part of the writing problem.
It's obviously part of a series. I didn't realize that when I downloaded this book, and for the first time in a long time, I won't listen to the other books in a series I started.
No, I can't say that it is. But it is a great listen. It is Salem's Lot after all.
They are all great and part of the story, not many books integrate the characters like this.
When Danny came to the window, I won't say who's window or when because it would be a shame to spoil it for you.
They did. And My tag line would be "Read the Book" or listen to it.
I read this book over 25 years ago, while living in a not so good neighborhood downtown. Read in the evenings and late at night, when the neighborhood came alive with screams and other noises. It was great, the best bump in the night book ever, and the listen is great too!
If you read this, don't forget to read The Shining too.
The writing style of Dean Koontz
The Cristopher Snow novels by Koontz. Christopher and Odd both have something weird about them.
Don't think I had a favorite, Koontz just came through again.
No, I just liked the book.
I avoided this book for a long time, the description didn't really capture me, but I was in the mood for a Dean Koontz novel and decided to try it, and like others of his that I was hesitant about I was very pleasantly surprised. Glad I listened to this book.
I think I will need a SciFi after this.
Probably, I don't really notice the narrators unless they are really good or really bad, he was average. Maybe the fact that the story was not that great, made him seem not that great.
Yes. I usually don't care for movies that come from books that I have read, but in this case I think a movie version would be a great improvement.
If you are a fan of thrillers or horror on the ice, I think you may be disappointed, I was.
Sherlock Holmes again.
It brought back that style that Doyle used and kept me going to the very unusual end.
Elementary my Dear Watson, Sherlock Holmes.
Not laugh or cry, but made me feel hopeful that we will see more.
You have to hear the solution to this mystery!
