    This was hard for me to get through. I liked it but it was very slow and not what I would call worth the time investment.

    Well I love Dean Koontz. I have listened to maybe 8 of his books thus far. This one was the worst of the 8. Maybe it's just me but the fist 6 disks were grueling and slow. The male narrator had a very deep monotone voice and described EVERYTHING! It didn't capture my interest much. The story was kinda stupid as well. Again this is just my opinion. I would listen to much better ones such as the Odd Thomas series, Life Expectancy, Intensity,Velocity, Darkest Evening of the Year etc.

    Although I thought that most of this book was pretty good, it began so slowly that I almost gave up on finishing it. Much like "The Taking" another Koontz book that starts very slowly, this book goes through almost 4 CD's worth of too much detail. For instance, instead of saying "It was raining" he'll go on for 20 minutes, sometimes more, about how rain was formed, the temperature, the chemical make up of the rain, the speed at which it fell, the lake from which the water evaporated, the fish in the lake, the state where the lake is located etc. It bogs down a great story with irrelevant facts. I like the fact that Koontz paints a very vivid picture in all of his books that I've read, however, keeping it relative like he does in Odd Thomas and most of his other books is what has made me a huge Koontz Fan. If you can get past the fact that the first 4 CD's should have been compressed into 3/4 of 1 CD you'll find that the book finally takes off, just as "The Taking" does.

    While in the process of listening to the 13 disk of this book I happened to catch the made for tv movie with Jeff Goldbloom. As usual with movies based loosely on novels it wasn't anything like the book. The book is MUCH better. This was a great book.

    I love it when a writer can actually make me gasp out loud. The villian was one of the most frightening characters ever created & the hero/heroine were just the way they should be - just good, decent people. The ending was fantastic. I need to read more Koontz books!

    This book was a very good read. Typical Dean Koontz twists and turns and surprises. Kept me interested all through it and not wanting to get out of the car at times. Highly recommend!

    Excellent book. Unfortunately, I have only been able to listen to disk 1-4 since they are broken up and Simply Audiobooks doesn't send all of it at once. That is disappointing. The first four disks are very good. I am just getting into the story and it is bone-chilling. Great readers also. I do recommend this book.
