What did you like best about this story?
The story kept me interested most of the time. The plot was never predictable and kept my brain working.
What about Suzy Jackson’s performance did you like?
I liked the way she delivered the sentences. It was as if she was just as excited about the story as the reader.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The narrator made me cringe. Somebody teach her pronunciation of the words too big for her. I had to listen with gritted teeth.
Other than that, overwritten and schmaltzy, as expected, but a rattling good tale, as expected.
Dean Koontz is a brilliant writer who has a tremendous way with big words. But they can be distracting and his overly verbose style sometimes detract from the story. Ashley Bell is a good story with an interesting twist, which is germane to Koontz's books, but it is simply too drawn out and gets lost in the verbiage. I give it 3.5 stars but rounded up simply because I like Dean Koontz in general. Also the narrator is top notch!
Loved getting to know characters with depth and warmth.
Only Mr. Koontz can do this.
Was cheering for BB from page 1.
The character of the Captain is hauntingly captivating.
And as usual, you get to the end of a Dean Koontz novel, and you think.......what if?
