And a girl is born from a brutal rape, her destiny mysteriously linked to Barty and the man who stalks him.

    Ric says: "Great Book"
    "One Momentous Book"
    Overall

    I have been listening to audible books for many years and this is truly one of the best. It is a blend of suspense, crime, and the ultimate goodness and humanity that we look for in the world. I know it sounds corny, but it works. Koontz brings the reader to a point of absolutely caring for the characters, and reacting to their times of tragedy and happiness as if they were family members. I was crying while driving at times during this outstanding book.

    Martin Stillwater has a vivid imagination. It charms his loving wife, delights his two little daughters, and gives him all the inspiration he needs to write his highly successful mystery novels. But maybe Martin’s imagination is a bit too vivid.

    "Very creepy..."
    Overall

    Very interesting Koontz book, and I've listened to many of them. The first part of the book is very, very, creepy. It made me more anxious than I think any book has ever done. In fact, if I was feeling anxious about something else, I had to stop listening as it felt overwhelming. Eventually things level out when the "good guys" begin to fight back. Very interesting villains. I enjoyed the narration; he reflected the thought processes of the double in an intriguing way. Not my favorite Koontz, but one I certainly will remember.

    A story of youth and promise, of loss and the search for love, of secrets and destiny, Blackwood Farm brings together the Vampire Chronicles and the story of the Mayfair Witches, and is Anne Rice at her mesmerizing best.

    K E Courchaine says: "She is back!"
    "Whiny adolescent protagonist"
    Overall

    I found this book difficult to get through, and often wishing it would finally come to an end. I have read almost all of the Anne Rice books, and have enjoyed them enormously--I have avoided listening to them in the past in order to savor the experience of reading the novels. Part of the problem is the protagonist--too adolescent and whiny to truly carry the plot. The story picks up in the framing portion when Lestat is present. And I wonder if the texture of Ms. Rice's books doesn't lend itself better to a read than a listen.
