The storyline had some promise, but it seemed to be mingled with a sappy love story that overwhelmed the story line at times. There was also some fairly unbelievable behavior, like how people in the story react to death, betrayal, etc., and this detracted from the story and caused confusion about the characters.
No, but I will watch for reviews about this kind of suspense/romance style of storyline in the future (I think I saw one before I downloaded this book on my phone).
More realistic interactions between the two main characters. Too much of the romantic aspect was highly predictable and unnecessary. This part of the storyline was not believeable and made me tune out on several sections. For instance, would a veteran cop who (in the beginning) barely knows this woman really insult her mother and comment on how badly she raised her daughter?
I enjoy reading most Koontz books but this one was an odd compilation of short stories, some of which were decent and some of which were utterly horrible. It sort of seemed like a collection of unrelated ideas that never were fully developed into complete stories.
Yes, I am viewing this book as an anomaly and will read other Koontz books.
suspenseful, addictive, spellbinding
Although it was a little slow starting off, once the story took off, I was hooked! The narrator (Simon Vance) is outstanding and the character development made me feel like I knew Mikhail and Lisbeth. I ended up seeing the movie before I was done with the book and I still listened to the rest of it because it was so good!
No, this was my first book that he narrated.
This books made me root heartily for Lisbeth and Mikhail!
