Total misery

Sit right back and suffer through the monotonous ride of misery that is Dean Koontz’s “The Door To December”. I am a huge Dean Koontz fan and have even liked some of his less well received books in the past, but this one is a complete and total dog. The premise of the novel had potential, but the quality of the writing sucked (for lack of a better word) and was overly melodramatic. With the help of a skilled writer, it could be made into a daytime soap opera. To add insult to injury, the book was read by one of the worst readers that I have heard in the industry. “The Door To December” is a door to disappointment and misery. My advice is that you pass on this one. Sorry Dean- it was that bad!

Doesn't seem like Koontz

Pretty disappointing - it lacks the wit and intimacy of the other Koontz novels I've read. Also some uncharacteristic mistakes, like referring to the "Waco family in Texas". Waco was the town, not the family. I also associate the narrator with more run-of-the mill mysteries, and that may have clouded my impression.
