The Ugly: I loved this book, I am putting that out there right now. But there is one aspect of the book that hurt me. It started out real quick, the pacing was amazing. Then all of a sudden when the action did begin to pick up and the killer was chasing Graham the book just became slow. Fair warning, it slowed way down.
The Bad: There is one part in the slowness of the book that’s not as bad because it does help with figuring out the end of the story. What seemed to be a throw away character at first turned out to be the one to figure out what was going on. He was a medical examiner in the vain of Ducky from NCIS. The point of the part to get the audience thinking for the rest of the book as to what could be going on.
The Good: Everything that Koontz did when it came to explaining. He went into great detail, and unfortunately, that also slowed everything down. Now, granted, that is the ugly of the book, but it is also the best thing of the book. Not everyone is a mountain climber, so when he was telling what was going on, it only helped that he explained everything. Nobody would have known what he was saying if he didn’t go into explanation.
Final Thoughts: All this book did was make me want to try my hand at mountain climbing sometime. I did really enjoy this book, probably more than a lot of people would have.
I had to slog through the book, thankfully it was not that long, and the ending was not even a real shock. The same snow storm/blizzard scene really got boring and repetative. I will continue to read Koontz but I would pass on this one.
