For those who know Koontz and love him, this book will meet and likely exceed your expectations. For those just becoming acquainted--you have a LOT of shopping and reading to do LOL. Koontz is one of the finest word smiths we have in literature in general at the present time, and all of his books are keepers.
Another wonderful read from the highly creative mind of Dean Koontz.
Dr. Frankenstein's "clone" is back to cause trouble, this time with a plot to destroy the entire world.
Two escaped convicts by the name of Nummy and Mr. Lyss inadvertently stumble across a "malfunctioned" creature of Victor's creation, who tells them of Victor's present location.
This information is passed on to Deucalion.
Deucalion looks up Victor, exchanges pleasantries with Victor for a couple of pages, and then destroys him.
The rest of these two books was nothing more than filler and drivel. This series should have stopped after book 3, because books 4 & 5 were just essentially the same type of story being rehased again, except this time there was too little substance and it was spread WAY too thin. Parts 1-3 are worthy of reading.. 4 & 5, not so much.
Buy all five and settle in, turn off the TV, and get ready for a roller coaster ride that only a master story teller can lay on you. cause if you only buy one at a time, you are going to have to wait to find out what the hell else could possibly happen.
Do it, do it now.
My partner at work and i share books.
I finished Book one, and gave it to her. She reads faster than i do, she's looking at me two days later, sayin "you done with book two yet, next day are you done yet.
I'm not a slow reader by any means but, I bought her the series for her birthday, before she exploded.
Like others I waited for each book in the series with baited breath, like so many others I too found this book to be the greatest disappointment of the series.
There were so many new characters add that when you put it down for a bit & picked it up to continue reading you got lost trying to figure out who was who. The names were difficult to remember as well as the character. It seemed to me that Dean Koontz was rushing when writing this, especially after the middle of the book. Like he was impatient to get it done so he kinda threw things in there to make it longer so the price could be put higher, which it wasn't worth the 10 bucks. Of all his books I've read I've never found one such a hard read.
The others in the series I couldn't put down, this one I put down a few times for a few weeks and almost dreaded having to pick it up again.
I'm sure that other followers will be anxious to read this, if only to put closure on the series.
SO sadly disappointed with this, if I was a first time Koontz reader this would probably be my one & only read of his. Since I've read other books by him I will probably read more of his writings.
