Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 2/17/2014

    " As I say in all my Koontz reviews ... well worth reading so long as you don't mind a quick wrap-up of the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Mcclure | 2/5/2014

    " Where are you when you are standing next to the doorway to Heaven? Here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina | 2/1/2014

    " I loved this book! I was surprised that I hadn't read it since it was published back in 1985 and I've read quite a few of Mr. Koontz's books. It was a bit predictable but I still thought the story was intriguing, compelling and horrible all wrapped together. Classic Koontz! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 BeamMeUpScotty | 1/30/2014

    " This was my first Dean Koontz book, I had high hopes for it. This book started out well but soon became predictable and at around page 230 I started skimming right through the rest of it. Very boring. I will try more by this author though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 1/30/2014

    " I used to love dean koontz as a novelist, he can build suspense brilliantly. But I always find that's his endings fall flat, they nearly always disappoint me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Pham | 1/19/2014

    " My favorite Koontz book ever "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/17/2014

    " one of the scariest books i have ever read, it kept me up at night "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina Schmidt andersen | 1/14/2014

    " Not my favorite read. I thought it was predictable and left you hanging. I only finished it because I bought the book, but it was a struggle to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rue | 1/14/2014

    " Dean Koontz is the most gripping and horrifying author ever. It is as though, the reader, as the victim is thrust into the moment, into a scene with a ghastly wind and a terrifying fathom of sorts. A fantastic read that l would recommend to those who love suspense and gruesome plots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya Patrice | 1/2/2014

    " Suspenseful, intriguing and loads of action. The only reason this is not stars is because I wanted more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vic | 12/15/2013

    " Smooth, entertaining & captivating read as other Dean Koontz "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenni L. | 12/12/2013

    " I enjoyed this book a lot as well. The way the charaters interact, and the detail of the strange things happening to them. The detail was great, and the plot good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 12/9/2013

    " First Dean Koontz book I read and hooked me on him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charity | 11/18/2013

    " Dean Koontz has always been hit and miss with me. This was one that was a hit. The characters were likable, and the premise was enough to keep me reading until it came to a conclusion. If you are a Koontz fan, this is one of his better efforts; not to be missed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Edney | 11/9/2013

    " Typical Koontz, about a young girl who had been missing for years and had been subject to pscological torture with the aim of cultivating supernatural powers. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jill | 11/5/2013

    " This book started out okay and then it just didn't really go anywhere at least for me it just stayed at the same pace. It was pretty boring for me. It didn't really impress me at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Shumway | 11/3/2013

    " Not my favorite of his. Really predictable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Yang | 10/28/2013

    " You can predict the story once you finish part 1 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helene Healey | 10/21/2013

    " Not one of his better books although the synopsis sounded like the book was going to be awesome. It lacks depth I guess "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris | 10/20/2013

    " It was a good story but kind of dragged. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirby | 10/16/2013

    " this time I read it, I decided it was really a little too long...he could have told the same story with a lot less words. even though I lowered my original rating, I still enjoyed the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kel | 8/30/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cece Baez | 4/14/2013

    " the author dragggggged this story way too long.....too many minute things mentioned instead of just getting to the point. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 10/22/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danielle Alexandria | 1/15/2012

    " The fascinating premise of this book carried me about 3/4 of the way through without much objection to the C grade prose and style. The last quarter of the book was disappointing to say the least. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 12/29/2011

    " An intersting suspense thriller which kept your attention. Especially loved the way Koontz leaves you hanging at the end of each chapter, wanting to go onto the next. But the story line seemed to parallel "Firestarter" by King. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 12/26/2011

    " I wish there was a 2.5 star option. This book was so intriguing, the end got a little weird, but all in all, I liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tritra | 10/9/2011

    " GOOD READ. I DIDN'T LIKE ENDING IT NEEDED A MORE CLIMACTIC ENDING. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE KNOWN IF THE CHILD HAD ANYMORE SPELLS DID SHE MAKE IT? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 10/6/2011

    " Great book. Full of suspense and keeps you guessing until the end. Very cool. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 6/24/2011

    " More than any other novel, I sort of developed my writing style and tone from this book. Good romantic scenes mixed with sci-fi and suspense. I liked it enough to maybe give it 4.5 stars. Still, most readers won't like it as much as I do. "

    " took too long to get to the gist of the story. too much unnecessary backstory & details muddied it. could have been 50-100 pgs shorter. figured out who the perpetrator was long before the characters did. but still a good, compelling thriller. "
