This is a typical Koontz book and I find them all a very good listening experience. This story did not hold many surprises for me as I could see where it would go but, despite the horror story itself, which was creepy, I did find it a relaxing listen and worth the effort.
This reveiw will be biased as I am not a fan of Neal Stephenson. I know he writes well and has done his reaearch most thoroughly but I do find his books very long and take ages to actually get to the point. I tried to see if listening to it would be better and I am afraid that it still takes a long time to get anywhere. However, its a roller coaster ride and the characters are interesting and the humour very tongue-in-cheek and it is delivered expertly by the narrator, Oliver Wyman. If you like Stephensons books then you will certainly like this. He does write good adventureous stories even when based on political shenannigans. He also always has a point and it makes you think about it long after the book is finished. Which really is the point.
This was a good story and worth a listen. It is not only about bedbugs and the twist using these creatures was interesting. It has a rythm that makes you want to find out what happens next, so be prepared for a good long sit down. You will find it worthwhile
The story appears to be well read and a typical EA Po for fans. Unfortunately one cant hear it as the background music is too loud
