I really like Koontz but I think this may be a bottom of the barrel scraper to keep Koontz' editors happy. I wished I would have listened to my gut reaction and stopped listening because this story was so ridiculous that it was ignorant. It borderlines on Big Brother mentality which some may enjoy.
The author got it right when he hired Samuel L. Jackson to narrate this short story. I laughed until I cried.
King is a master in his craft and I really enjoyed this book. I'm still in awe of King after all these years.
I don't what was worse: the story or the narration. I'm not sure why it received good reviews but I hope this review saves someone some money.
Stephen King is the best storytelling author of them all and this time he had a decent ending. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of King's but every since the Dark Tower series and its awful ending, I savor the stories but dread the endings until now. On one hand, this story is a little far fetched but on the other hand, I live in small town and it has made me think twice about being ready for a disaster. Doesn't everyone know a James Renny (sp?)? This story definitely plants King's paranoia roots pretty deep. But what do you expect from a little gonja, either past or present?
