Normally I really like Koontz. I have read all of his books. The narrator was fine, it was the book that was disappointing
The book was very enticing in the beginning and really got me wanting to find out more about the characters, but in the last third, it just lost steam and it just couldn't end fast enough. There was no real ending, just way too many coincidences as Koontz was trying to wrap up the book. Normally he ties things up neatly......the protagonist is wealthy, knows how to use guns, can escape from hand cuffs, that sort of thing. But this time around he tied everything together too neatly and it just made the entire ending of the story ruin the entire book.
The narrator was fine. Although his female voices leave a bit to be desired
Unfortunately not really. But if bad endings are your thing and you enjoy having no real plot then give it a whirl.
I think that this was the worst Koontz book I have ever listened to. Go back to Odd Thomas or Christopher Snow, Mr. Koontz. Those characters are enjoyable and likeable, the ones in Innocence just made me what to scream in frustration.
a different author. The whole process of the story was so disjointed. He bring in characters and then never mentions them again. Nothing connected, it was as if he was struggling to take an ok idea and turn it into something that would never meet expectations
Gone back to journalism school
He was fine, I have no issues with him. Unless he gave writing pointers to the author, then he should be shot
Total and utter disappointment. Waste of time and credits
Don't bother, everyone dies.
check the bathroom
The Haunting of Hell House. Same kind of story line, this one has a modern day twist.
He needs to work on his female voices.
See my three words above.
Normally, I have had trouble getting through Bentley Little's books. This one started slow, but built up speed and kept it there. I enjoyed this and made my husband check the bathroom for about a week. The narrator is not the worst I have heard, but not everyone can be Scott Brick. Any way, I did like this book. Once it got going, it kept you there till the end
The narrator. While he isn't as horrible as some out there, he does have the inability to use different voices/inflections/cadences for each character.
Probably at the end, something happens to the main character Aaron. It made me pause and think "Is this was going to be like every zombie novel out there?"
See above about what I would change
Yes, but keep in mind that the narrator is not the best
If you are a zombie fan, the book and plot are fairly enjoyable.
Since I don't have the print version, I can't say. But since I joined Audible, it is hard to "read" a book, I love having them read to me. I like how the narrators try to have different voices for the characters.
Susan and Archie are my favs. Susan because she is just plain awesome. She is smarter than the average bear. I like Archie because is just a normal guy. No super powers to get the job, he has faults (some that cost him dearly), and he is just one of those likeable guys.
Not sure, she does pretty good with all of them. Altough I really liked the way Caroline McCormick would have Gretchen say "Archie" and "Darling" and "Sweetheart". Kinda breathy Marilyn Monroe-ish.
Parts or it were funny and parts were can't stop reading because I gotta find out what happened
You really have to listen to these in order, they do follow a story line and characters from the other books make appearances. I really liked this series and can't wait for the next.
Yes. The story is pretty good. It gives yet another twist to the classic vampire tale and one that could actually be plausable in this day and age
I think it would be right at the end when Joe is in the school basement. to say anymore would give away part of the story.
Sure, I would love to see who would play Joe Pitt
The series itself is pretty good. The last two were a little tough to get through, but I think that had to do with me really wanting there to be a happy ending with Joe and Evie. Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators and he does not disappoint on these books. I would give them a listen, if for nothing else than to learn some slang, hear a white guy try to sound black and have a good chuckle at the sarcasim that is throwm around in the series.
Having never read the print version, I have no clue. However, I did like this book. It was a little slow to start, but it picked up speed and I found myself really liking the characters
I liked the main character and his wife. They both started off as not being so interesting, but then they took off and became people that I wound up rooting for and really identifying with them.
All of them
Yes and no. There were parts that I just couldn't stop and I really had to find out how things were going to turn out. Then there were others that seemed like a good point to take a break
Not a must read, but worth a credit!
I love this book. I got it in paperback years ago for Christmas. The TV version was ok, but this digital version is awesome. Having someone else read it to me allowed me the opportunity to pick up on things that I had missed and interpret characters and situations differently. This is by far King's best work. Great adaptation on the battle of good vs. evil. A must listen!
I think that my favorite characters are Stu Redmond and Larry Underwood. Stu is down to earth and Larry proves that people can learn and change.
The whole book
I would love to take Nick Andros. It would enable me to be more creative in getting my point across
Best book ever in my opinion
I got this book because I love horror. The pretense is good, a nice little take on vampires, however there are extra characters that aren't needed, graphic sex scenes that really don't need to be in the book (perhaps the author gets off on grossing people out) and other scenes in the book just act as useless filler. The book moved slow, made no sense in parts and was very tough to get through. I was really hoping that I would enjoy this book and would be able to write a great review, but I can't. Just listening to the book makes me feel very disjointed and scratching my head as to what was just said and why. It was as if the author had trouble transferring his thoughts for the book to paper, somewhere in between the connection got lost.
had the author taken just one more day to think through this story, the ending would have made sense and the reader (listener) would not be left scratching their head wonder just what the hell was meant by the ending that really wasn't an ending by I have to stop writing this book because I need to get it to the editor because I am at my deadline and I need the money ending.
