I really enjoyed this book and listened to it in just a couple of days. It had all the elements I like in a story: suspense, mystery, a little Sci-fi, etc. Although I tend to think of Koontz as a B writer, I call this one an A. I thought it was creative and not too far fetched.
I do not agree that he forces his religious views on others or shows disdain for people who don't agree with him. The religious/spiritual parts of the book are small and appropriate.
I also do not agree that the book starts slow. The beginning is slower but normal as he builds the story into fairly quick action. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
The narrator was pretty good, although I smiled at his mispronunciation of a couple of words. Overall, great story, great listen.

Very interesting Koontz book, and I've listened to many of them. The first part of the book is very, very, creepy. It made me more anxious than I think any book has ever done. In fact, if I was feeling anxious about something else, I had to stop listening as it felt overwhelming. Eventually things level out when the "good guys" begin to fight back. Very interesting villains. I enjoyed the narration; he reflected the thought processes of the double in an intriguing way. Not my favorite Koontz, but one I certainly will remember.
