Let me first address why I feel ripped off. After over 8 hours of listening, the end was a huge disappointment because nothing in the story was resolved. It seems to me that the reason for this is to make way for another sequel.
In my view this can be good & not so good.
Good because Christopher Lane is an excellent narrator. I am always amazed when narrators are able to remain consistent as they give voice to characters. The only exception would be Michael and Madison. Since both come from the south, I would expect both to have a distinct southern accent. Neither do.
Good because this book is really funny in parts. As I drove and listened, I laughed out loud. Sometimes Mr Koontz is downright silly, and frankly I enjoy silly when it doesn't become stupid and tedious.
Good because the dialogue is always interesting and it's real. I like that too.
Not so good because I tend to wonder if I will maintain interest long enough to see the saga of Victor Frankenstein (or whatever alias he uses--this one is Immaculate, which IS kind of stupid.)
Not so good because frankly I think this is purposeful to keep me coming back--and so far I'm falling for this age old tactic. I guess I enjoy it enough that, despite the not so goods, I continue to be entertained.
Finally, I would recommend this book if you want an entertaining, funny cliff hanger and you're willing to get sucked in. Mr Lane's narration is really engaging enough when added to Mr Koontz' humor to be worth the cost/credits. I'd do it again, and I'll probably find myself listening to #4--or is it #5. See! You just lose track.
