    I actually wound up reading this book because I got snowed in one day and needed something to do, and it was one of the only books on the premises I hadn t read Since the story sounded intriguing, I gave it a go, and spent the next couple of weeks on the edge of my seat.If there s one thing Dean Koontz is good at, in my mind, it s psychological writing Odd Thomas being his only other book I can recall reading, I

    This is one of my favorite Koontz books and I m glad I took the time to squeeze it in right now It s also one of the ones that is an example of how often his books are misshelved He hardly ever writes horror these days and his books areoften a blend of the fantasy mystery that he writes in this one.We have a series of mysterious happenings in this one, from Ethan experiencing his own death, to somebody who pulls himself

    I am a Dean Koontz fan who has enjoyed some great books but this book did nothing for me A 2 star it was ok is all I can give this book It has some entertaining parts which is why I gave itthan one star I enjoyed the last 40 pages the most as the story came to a powerful close which many Koontz books do You can call this book a mock thriller or a voyage of half baked characters but I just call this book kind of boring I am s

    What s not to like I won t get into the story itself, it can be read elsewhere, but come on The descriptions, the plotlines, the characters, the riddles, everything This has to be The Masterpiece of Dean Koontz s career thus far This is a perfect story, almost as perfect as they come, it even outdoes my faves such as Whispers , Intensity , Sole Survivor and From the Corner of His Eye To those of you who didn t even get through
