More Praise for Dean Koontz
“Dean Koontz is a prose stylist whose lyricism heightens malevolence and tension. [He creates] characters of unusual richness and depth.”—The Seattle Times
“Tumbling, hallucinogenic prose....‘Serious’ writers...might do well to examine his technique.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Lyrical writing and compelling characters...Koontz stands alone.”—Associated Press
“In every industry there exist ‘artists’ that are not only unforgettable, but know their craft better than the rest. Dean Koontz...is among these artisans.”—Suspense Magazine
“[Koontz] has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match.”—Los Angeles Times
“Perhaps more than any other author, Koontz writes fiction perfectly suited to the mood of America...novels that acknowledge the reality and tenacity of evil but also the power of good...[and that] entertain vastly as they uplift.”—Publishers Weekly

Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The story is also about the power of true love and will and commitment to redeem a troubled soul.
Everyone has their own taste of book reading but not something that I would like to go again with.

After the first couple of scenarios with Jim and his mysterious rescues I was really hooked. However...the flitting between the two main characters views meant that when it was the female perspective (Holly's) that it was too much like a romance novel at times, despite how she drove things along, but the number of times she was declaring her love for Jim in her head or eventually out loud felt over the top and premature given how briefly the characters had known each other that it got on my nerves a bit and nearly abandoned the story.
Also the final few lines made it feel just like a cheesy adventure film or tv series setting itself up for a sequel, which again dropped it a notch for me.
