This is my very favorite book of all of his books. The ending was surprising and so perfect that I cried. Koontz seems to be moving away from such horrific scenes and giving us hope for a better world.

Though I liked this book, it isn't one of the author's best. It does follow his usual theme of two people finding romance during bizarre circumstances. If you like Dean Koontz, then you will like this book. If you haven't read him before pick up "Whispers" or "Watchers" instead.

Hugely successful horror writer Koontz turns instead to a much more sensitive, and even Christian(!), story about a young man whose appearance disgusts anyone who looks at him meeting up with a girl who cannot stand anyone touching her.

Once again Mr. Koontz hits it out of the ballpark with another winner!!!! Loved the complete innocence & purity of the two protagonists. Makes me wish for a sequel please!

Slow and boring until the half of the book. I kept reading as I wanted to know more about the main character. Ending was not what I expected and I didn't like about the truth of the main character much.

I always give a book at least 50 pages before I ditch it. This one was a little hard to get into at first but I followed my rule and finally got into it. The ending did not deliver like I expected. It was an ok read but not something I would recommend.

I loved it. I loved Addison's view of the world and the creative sci fi feel. Mr. Koontz, you have officially gained a new fan.

Somewhat similar to Koontz's Odd Thomas books, the story's main character is an affable outsider for not immediately known reasons. The writing is lyrical and profound at times, and at others is fairly brutal. He handles both deftly. The story took a turn that I wasn't expecting and it certainly has an ending. This is clearly not a bridge to a future book. I suppose I would descibe this book as...different...and thought provoking...but definitely different.

I really never read this type of subject matter however I kept at it. I was disappointed with the ending but otherwise it kept me intrigued throughout. :)
