Ouch! After a great start, full of potential with a great story developing, Koontz pulled the rug from beneath my feet. It was almost as if the author was bored with the project and abruptly quit. This is the first Koontz novel that I did not love.
Story one put chills up my spine while making me laugh out loud in admiration of the story!
Four good stories all about the "person within the person". Three stories are good--one story is exceptional. It takes a lot to give me the creeps but Stephen King reached out, grabbed me and said boo!
I think that Dean Koontz has lost the formula. Maybe he is bored with the old sharp witted thriller. Maybe he is just running out of ideas. The Frankenstein series started out average and kept getting worse. I will not purchase another.
I saved one of Greg Iles' first books until last. It is a little dated with reference to the computer technology but this is a great listen. It starts out fast and keeps going. Plan your listen for when you have some time When you start this one you won't want to stop.
This is a good read. Very well worth the cost or credit. Swain's character, Jack Carpenter, kind of grows on you like Grippando's Jack Swytech, or Patterson's Alex Cross. This story is well crafted and keeps you wondering.
Another great book by this author. All of Greg Iles's work has kept me totally into the story and not willing to shut it off. Iles captures the essence of the deep south in his stories of Natchez and the Mississippi River. Dick Hill's narration is superb. Keep them coming Greg Iles and I will keep buying them!
I think P.T. Deutermann is my new most favorite author. Lots of action, lots of story. I am looking forward to more. This was very much worth the credits.
I have read and listened to hundreds of books. This is the absolute worst. Disjointed and corny. Don't waste your time.
