Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

The population in the ski-resort town of Snowville, California, seems to have disappeared--everyone who's alive, that is. When Dr. Jenny Paige returns with her sister, the two descend upon the desolate town with an eerie feeling that is only reinforced with the uncovering of dead bodies throughout. But the signs indicate that the people's deaths--by an inexplicable force--were recent, so Jenny and Lisa scramble to find out what happened. Buck Schirner narrates with a deep, gravelly voice that is perfect for the kind of tense atmosphere found in Koontz's books. Schirner's pacing and pitch respond to the story's context, and his characterizations of female characters are impressive, considering his deep voice.

Review

“Scary and stylish.”—Los Angeles Times

“First-rate…scary and plausible.”—Publishers Weekly

“Gruesome and unrelenting.”—Stephen King

“Stunning. Phantoms is an instant classic.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“Koontz has outdone himself.”—Philadelphia Daily News

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 --This text refers to the mass_market edition.
