Listener Opinions

    " A little different for Koontz. Lot's of humor with the usual excitement and eeriness. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marian | 2/1/2014

    " Eh. The storyline was interesting and had potential. It also had some super scary moments. But, the banter between the characters was almost unbearable. It ruined it for me. I found myself scanning through pages until the dialogue ended. Not a shining moment for Koontz. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 2/1/2014

    " All I have to say is: don't we just all love our mothers? I sure do :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Book Him Danno | 1/27/2014

    " I'm not a horror fan and this scared me to death. It had its funny moments and then the really freaky ones. I may read another book by Koontz, my sister in-law loves him, but I hate not being able to sleep due to fear of nightmares. I don't like to be scared, enough in real life to keep me up without the silly things I read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brian Carr | 1/23/2014

    " So far I've been putting in all the books I like so I thought it was time to switch things up. When I was a kid I loved Dean Koontz so I picked up this book for old times sake. I don't know if his writing has changed or if my tastes have changed but this book did not do it for me. "

    " Time is limited , but you know that by the tick tock of the clock...I liked it ,even it made me think about life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary Alvey | 1/18/2014

    " Very good, I wish I could dream some of this stuff up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martip | 1/9/2014

    " Very enjoyable book. So far I find Koontz's books really rank high in the area of characters that are both memorable, and people you enjoy getting to know. I can't say I've done much reading of 1st generation Americans with living immigrated parents since my Amy Tan days over a decade ago. This story's foundation rests on that cultural conundrum, and it seems the guilt might make Tommy lose his mind. We meet Tommy just as he's bought his dream car, a Corvette, which represents him reaching the pinnacle of being truly American. Yet, one phone call to his mother-who uses his Vietnamese name, and Tommy's racked with guilt. Instead of sticking to the family business, Tommy is a successful detective novel author. His mother is not impressed, and she predicts much doom and gloom for Tommy including a crash of his car, and a warning not to get mixed up with blondes. It doesn't take long for either to occur. I've never known a BOOK to be considered "slapstick" but the character development and comedy of this book is something rare to me....and right now, slapstick will do for a description. I wholeheartedly suggest this book. You won't be disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 1/5/2014

    " Dean Koontz, in my opinion, never fails to entertain the reader. This book was exciting and a fast read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 William | 12/25/2013

    " This constitutes a horror novel? Nothing scary going on here except that I paid to own this book. Oh, the horror!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake Harrison | 11/15/2013

    " TOTALLY dark humor, I laughed almost through the entire book. I'm not sure if Koontz set it up that way, but I just couldn't help it. It was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 10/25/2013

    " Years ago this was the first Dean Koontz book I read and one that has led to a love of this author. Hilariously horrifying you won't be disappointed with this action packed novel. A perfect novel for a quiet night in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 10/14/2013

    " Very good.It little SciFi which I usually don't like but works in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Flow Wampfler | 9/3/2013

    " Kind of a strange story, but this was my first Koontz experience and I'm sure it'll get me to come back for more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 8/29/2013

    " A tad slow to start. Interesting characters. Ending was a little of a cop out I thought. Overall, entertaining read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 5/6/2013

    " This is a quick read and a funny story. It is full of zany chacters and interesting plot twists. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eugene | 12/14/2012

    " This was my first Dean Koontz book (which I picked up at a local library on a whim). I found it an extremely enjoyable trip that left me wanting more. I loved the ending! "

    " Good story that mostly keeps you on the edge of your seat. The characters and their interactions did cause me to laugh out loud a few times. I would recommend this to those that enjoy creepy stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Dillon | 1/14/2012

    " Anyone who thinks a horror novel can't be funny needs to read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bria | 12/6/2011

    " I was pretty young when I read this, but I did really like it at the time. This in no way, however, leads me to believe I would ever like another book by this man, so do not be alarmed. "

    " I have read several Koontz books and have liked them but this I am not too fond of. I understand that he was using a different style but I think I like his other stuff better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joe | 6/29/2011

    " Koontz’s attempt at screwball noir is just plain lame. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 6/24/2011

    " The protagonist's mother is a blast in this book; so funny. Koontz was going for a humorous suspense tale, and he suceeded. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either. 3.5 stars! "

    " This book was really good, and I am sorry it took me 3 years to finally get past the first chapter. I have a fear of dolls, and the first chapter scared me to pieces each time I tried to read it. I'm glad I finally did though, and adored the characters. "
