The Ugly: Okay, there were several points in the book where Dean Koontz just went into a wild tangent of explaining foods, surroundings, and what not. Yes, description is nice and all, but leave a bit to the imagination. All he really did was take away from the main story.
The Bad: Aside from the distractions in descriptions, Mr. Koontz didn’t really build any supporting characters. It was more they were there, but they didn’t matter in the total story. The story was all about Alex and Joanna. Major lack in supporting cast for this book.
The Good: There was a point in the book where you realize there is a major conspiracy going on. As I said above, I believe I read one of the later versions of the book. I do believe that helped in the overall story. How this conspiracy worked in the original version is beyond me. The twist and turns are what helped.
Final Thoughts: I’m glad I read a recent version. I don’t think I would have liked the original version as much. Yes, the distractions hurt quite a bit, but if you tough them out you’ll be okay.
My only complaint is in this eBook throughout the book usually at the beginning of the chapters there are words and spacing that is incorrect. You can always figure out the word or the statement, but when I pay for a book I would not expect see these types of errors, especially for an author like Koontz.
