He is back....
He is hunting her with a sick desire more terrifying than hatred could ever be. And he is in her house again.
He is back....
He is on the stairs, and he can't be stopped. Hilary killed him once and he keeps coming back. Again and again.
He is back....
He is at her bedroom door.

I read this book when it first came out, and I haven't read any book since that terrified me more! It was very intense and I had to have the lights on to listen. Awesome book and awesome narrator. Definitely credit worthy.
Dry and predictable. Way too much emphasis on the sub characters. This book is also slow. Just when the story starts to get good, it switches to the dull and boring sub characters lives. Not his best work. I'm sorry I wasted a book credit on this one.
This is one of the best Koontz audios I have listened to this year. You can visualize each part as if it were a movie and identifying with the main character's position is mind boggling.
I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
The story is uncharacteristically predictable. The characters, both good and bad, were less well rounded and fleshed out than the best of Koontz. I did not have any audio drop out problems, but I found the action scenes and conclusion somewhat uninteresting.
This is my 6th Koontz book so I think I am familiar with his "out there" style which can be very interesting for some and a "Oh brother this is so stupid" for others. I am somewhere in between on this one. I will still continue to be a fan because some of his books are so good.
I do not written reviews but this was so bad I could not believe it was koontz. In the story you have to believe that smart people can not think of the obvious but jump to the extreme.
I was delightfully creeped-out by the ending!
I have been a listener for many years and have never written a review. I have read all or most of this author's books and was appalled from the start by the amateur quality of the work. I had the plot in the bag in the first hour. The sex scenes were over the top and added nothing to the story. The dialogue needed serious editing. Even more annoying was the technical "dead spaces" that appeared several times throughout and the annoying whine of the narrator. I kept wondering if Dean Koontz was allowing someone else to write in his name. WHISPERS is a far cry from his brilliant "Odd Thomas" stories. I purchased the book excitedly because with a recent release date, I assumed it was his newest work . Ah....it all made sense at the end when we were told it was a work from the 80's.
As an artist, myself, I would be ashamed to sell my very bad early work. It would ruin my current reputation. I would suggest that Mr. Koontz reconsider his permission to sell his very bad early work. If this were my first Dean Koontz, it would have been my last.
