Koontz did it again.......

The over all book was great. Koontz did it again. Giving full characteration and not missing a beat. It felt a little slow in places however it gives the second half that much more life. This is worth purchasing.

First of all, congratulations to Stephen Lang, for doing such a superb job with the book, I enjoyed him the second time now, he also reads "by the light of the moon" by Dean Koontz. This book, together with "The face" ranks among my top 3 Koontz-books, absolutely world-class. The audio book breaks down pretty much in 3 seven hour parts and I can honestly say that the middle part represents the strongest I have come about in the thriller-genre. While some argue that the book is too long, I think that everybody who brings an appreciation for creativity to the book, will fall in love with this one, leave alone the suspense. Is the book too long? Sure it is, Koontz-novels almost always are. However, I would have to contain myself not to call this book the work of genius. While I do not want to spoil anything here, let's just say that the evil force behind it all has been fleshed out in *creative* (the key-word to the book) detail, keeping the listender mesmerized and literally sweaty handed. The way Koontz ties up the loose ends are brilliant, tongue-in-cheek and even good for a laugh. The characters are extremely likeable, a former weakness of Koontz, and just a certain form of "literature" that shows up again and again throughout the book shows, Koontz still has a deep, playful passion for writing and the fact that he is kind of a mass producer does not take away from the quality at all. The plot unfolds a bit slow at the beginning, but this time there is a method to the (descriptive) madness. The horror gets so real. The listener will get over-compensated for a not so spectacular beginning. This book will split the critics down the middle one more time, as they will love or hate it, this one is more complex (like "the face"), and less linear than for example "the husband". In my opinion, this 700 + books is merely about 50 pages too long and he should have taken it out of the last third, but who am I. It's the journey that counts and this is a MASTERPIECE
