I am an occasional Dean Koontz fan, I've read several of his books and have had mixed opinions about them. I like his novels that have a more serious tone, like this one does. Not a lot of "boy-meets-girl" crap and corny dialogue, as in some of his novels. This is just a very well-crafted story that moves very smoothly along, with suspense in all the right places. Classic Koontz. I'm very glad I got this one, it was a good use of a credit.
The narrator did an excellent job, too. It was the first time I'd heard him, and I was very impressed with his skill.

I would not call this a horror, it is more in the line of B movie stuff. It reminded me a little of Life Expectancy and of the Frankenstein books, only better. When I say B Movie I do not mean stupid. This is intelligently written. By B movie, I mean he brings back all those things that you used to wonder about and go wow.
When DK is hitting on all cylinders such as in this book, then he throws everything in except the kitchen sink, and you never know which direction he is going to take you next. This book has Time Travelers, a Guardian Angel, Nazi's, junkies, lots of guns, lots of lightning, an eel, orphans, and a love story. DK even gets the love story right.
This is the best book I have listened to in over a year.

My husband is the Dean Koontz fan. I bought this in order that we could sit and listen to this together whilst I was knitting and he was not knitting! I fould it an excellently thought out book if a little 'strange' at first but coming to a fast paced finale. It was excellently read and I have to admit to a 'go faster, section that did my knitting no good at all. Really enjoyable.

I haven't read a lot of Dean Koontz over the years and was pleasantly surprised at how much his writing has improved and matured. This is a great story - quite original and believable. I loved the characters... well all except for grown up Thelma. She could never have been a successful comedy act in the real world because she was painfully UNfunny. At the start I had to keep rewinding as I felt the narrator spoke quite quickly but I got used to it.
All in all, a great story and I would recommend it.

It is not my habit to write a review, after all who am I to criticise a professional writer. I enjoyed the story and the performance.
