I would imagine this book would apepal to a young teen more than it did to me.
tedious and disappointing; i could not stand to even listen to the entire book.
strange, bizarre, unpredictable, not what i expected, preposterous, absolutely incredible and i highly recommend it.
this one by Koontz, and i am a koontz fan, is simply realy, really good. At first i felt the narator was just WRONG for the book, but came to realize how good he is in depicting the characters.
thank god its over. the author makes sure we despise every character. why is this a bestseller?
The book begins slowly, with seemingly irrelavent intermittant dialogues with a 'narrator'; presumedly the fictional author of the tale. Evenutally the book evolves into an enthralling story (as soon as the character takes to sea) that challenges preconceptions of reality, experience, and memory.
the premise of this novel was very promising, and even the first few chapters were engaging. the main character (the boy)never proved to be that interesting, though, and the one that is the most interesting (the storyteller), we don't hear enough of. Interest gave way to tedium. By the end, i was hoping for the end.
