I’ve read many Dean Koontz books, and listened to several audio versions. There are some that I read and re-read and there are others that, while interesting, are not moving. This is by far one of Koontz’s best!
I find print version slightly superior, I read it prior to purchasing it on Audible However, it is great to see the nuances that I missed the first time through.
Grandissimo was what Super Casino by Pete Earley could have been had Earley had the passion for Las Vegas that David Schwartz displays. After reading Super Casino I always wondered about this Jay Sarno guy, he seemed far more interesting that Bill Bennett and William Pennington. To finally get the whole story and find out the truth - not that Jay Sarno died after a night of satisfying a dozen prostitutes - allowed a much broader view of how ahead of his time Jay really was, and the fact that had Jay not been a "hotel man" Las Vegas would not be place it is today.
I thought Eric Martin did a very good job, however some details and pauses made it seem a bit over the top.
There is so much information you can't really make it though in one sitting but is certainly a book I will listen to over and over.
I can't wait to see what Dr. David Schwartz does next!
