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.

Had a hard time getting into story, almost put it down several times. There was excessive descriptions of scenes and places that I felt added no value to story. I am an avid fan of Koontz, just wasn't a favorite.

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. :)

A little too weird for my liking.

Several hours of my life wasted that I can't get back.

A lyrical, novel within a parable, with a blending of life philosophy and artful prose. This novel seems to be the logical evolution after "The Good Guy" and "Relentless" - - might be too heavy for some expecting only entertaining fiction, but to the long-term Koontz fan, it is a reader's feast!

not one of the best books he has wrote

Not unusual with Koontz's books, this was a strange one. Always trying to figure out what was so terrible about the main character and his father. Had to plough on to the end to find out what the 'problem' was. At that point, one was compelled to contemplate the human condition.
