I'm admittedly, a huge Koontz fan, readily downloading his latest books as soon as they're available. 77 Shadow Street, however, fails to live up to his normal edge of your seat style. There are far too many characters, a strange scientific twist that's all too reminiscent of Michael Crichton's "Prey" and in the end, the book labors over description with far too much detail.
Sure, it's got some great lines and the normal Koontz morality about good and evil. Sadly missing was a canine protagonist. All in all, fairly disappointing. Sorry Dean!
Suspenseful, intriguing and even has a love story thrown in. Very good book, kudos to King for mixing it up a bit! There is also a message at the end of the book from Stephen himself, his thoughts on the Kennedy event. I'm not into political books, but this one was really a good listen.
