Now let me preface this review by saying that I am a hardcore Koontz fan. I've read so many of his books, both old and new, over the years that I have lost count and I frequently try and persuade others to do the same.
I am not the most eloquent writer and I can't quite put my finger on what exactly my problem was with this book but I can try and explain the feeling it gave off to the best of my ability. First, it felt like the plot lacked the finesse and scary suspense that his books usually have. It seemed almost like this was one of his earlier works and it was written before he had established a style for himself as a writer. On top of that, it also felt like maybe that he wrote this because he had to as he had a deadline to meet and no other works to present. It felt like he was bored writing this almost whereas in his other books his excitement for the storyline is almost palpable in his writing.
Obviously this is just my opinion but overall because of those reasons I found the book to be just okay. I finished it is one sitting as it is short (I'm having a hard time believing this was unabridged.) compared to some of his work.
