"First-rate suspense, scary and stylish." (Los Angeles Times)
As usual, this thing scared the willies out of me and my wife. It was exciting and troubling that there may be people that do such things. We haven't finished it yet, but I hope the guy gets his "come up ins"
Sad, Exciting, Awesome
The power the girl obtained
Not yet. But wouldn't mind. Loved his voice variations between characters.
The moments the girl cried for her mom in her dreams
Very good book. Recommend it
Kept me interested all the way
suspense and even some romance
good narrator- he did the little girl really good!
whenever the room got cold, I "felt" the chill too
great book- recommend
Excellent reading by Mr. Guidall of a story that rocks the soul! Who knows what happens in those unknown places by those unknown scientists...in the real world!
I found this book to be entertaining despite the fact that I figured out "whodunnit" very early on. The mystery of why and how kept me going. And as always, Koontz wrote characters who drew me in. While not the best sample of his work, it was nevertheless enjoyable.
Sit right back and suffer through the monotonous ride of misery that is Dean Koontz’s “The Door To December”. I am a huge Dean Koontz fan and have even liked some of his less well received books in the past, but this one is a complete and total dog. The premise of the novel had potential, but the quality of the writing sucked (for lack of a better word) and was overly melodramatic. With the help of a skilled writer, it could be made into a daytime soap opera. To add insult to injury, the book was read by one of the worst readers that I have heard in the industry. “The Door To December” is a door to disappointment and misery. My advice is that you pass on this one. Sorry Dean- it was that bad!
Pretty disappointing - it lacks the wit and intimacy of the other Koontz novels I've read. Also some uncharacteristic mistakes, like referring to the "Waco family in Texas". Waco was the town, not the family. I also associate the narrator with more run-of-the mill mysteries, and that may have clouded my impression.
