I had to stop listening when I just didn't care if the main character made it or not. The gory details kept repeating themselves and the general content could not hold my attention. If you like the style of Stephen King you will probably not like this listen.
This book is what I expect from Koontz in the best way. The only negative is the loose ends from all the destruction were not tied up very well at the end.
Never have listened or read a book like this. Loved the fact I didn't know what would come next. I would have given a "5" except it got a little slow in some areas.
I stuck with this just because of the good reviews but only liked the last 2 hrs. Much too slow of a build into the story.
I have never read much of King's work but this book had a great story line and just enough paranormal to be believable. Never knew what to expect and the grief expressed by the author made you emapathetic. Didn't take me long to get through this book.
Not my usual style of book but it definitely kept my interest and was unpredicitable. I was ready to end listening.
May be too slow for some but very hypnotic and poetic. I was thinking about the characters weeks later. I love it when a book does that to me!
I enjoyed listening to this book although it was fairly predictible. When I got book 2 at the library it just was too light for me. I have no interest now in listening to the others.
