A disappointing read..The "build up" was really scattered and could predict the outcome. Quite disjointed though I did read it to the end.

In my opinion, this was a good read. It was really nice seeing how the story came together! The releasing of some clues here and there made the book seem like a mystery story. It was nice finding out who the girl Carol ran over was. It was a good twist. I wish they added another chapter explaining what happened next.

This is quite possibly the worst book I’ve ever read. The foreboding imagery is so thick that you choke on it. The premise is so silly that you hope terrible things happen to the characters. The explanations are so bad that you wish you can erase all memory of this book from your brain. I don’t know if any of Koontz books are better, but this one book was enough to turn me off him for good. Read at your own peril.
