More exciting than the first 2. Lots of action and detail. The city of LUD was interesting. The computer, Blane was haunting.
My wife and I really enjoyed this book. We are Dean Koontz fans forever. Dark Rivers of the Heart intertwines Big-Brother, high-tech, ultimate evil, innocence trampled, and the truth that freedom has a price; it is not a given. The characters are superb. The notion that "Love at first site" can happen to anyone was a wonderful twist to a story that grabs you and never lets you go, even when the book is done. We hope that there will be a sequel to this book. This is as entertaining as the Odd Thomas series, but with a lot more action. This is definitely a keeper.
I teach Computer Science and really enjoyed this book. The narrator is wonderful. No character is safe; which makes the action even more intense. You don't know who will survive, who is good, and who is bad. The concept of infecting millions of computers with your daemon project to protect it from being dismantled reminds me of the SETTI project which utilizes the processors of many off-site workstations all over the world to distribute the load. And tapping into the world wide networks of security cameras, PC cameras, etc to help keep track of your friends and enemies is frightening.
I would recommend this book to anyone. You don't need a degree in computer technology to enjoy this book. We are all exposed to techno-babble everyday on TV and in the movies. Just enjoy the story and glaze over the detailed technology blurbs if you need to and you'll be just fine.
This episode really puts you in the "Old West" Sci-Fi style. I loved the way he brought the "Salem's Lot" priest to life. There is no stopping King. I became attached to the towns people and felt their courage and was touched by their losses. Highly recommended!
Best so far. Roland became human. We were finally able to see into the heart and the mind of the gunslinger. This one keeps your interest from the begining to the end. How does King do it?
Even better than the Dark Tower 1. It makes you wonder what goes on in Stephen's head. What ever it is, it's bizzarely interesting.
Very well written. Typically Stephen King. The images are so well described that you believe that you're standing right there.
