This is a wonderful scary/thriller novel with a wild mix of humor as well. This is one of the most lighthearted Koontz novels imo while still being scary in his usual way. The main character is an naturalized American that came from Vietnam as a child with his family. He unlike any other member of his family has embraced the American dream with a vengeance though he still loves his family dearly. His desire to become so American causes stress with his family but especially his mother and results in shall be say unforeseen consequences for him and a young lady he comes across while running for his life. Coming home this day he brings a doll inside he finds on his outside porch and it sets in motion the beginning of the end of his life as he knows it.
I hate romance novels but adore love stories, like this one. I give it only four stars because it did get a little lame once it got going about the doll he found on the porch. Honestly though I don't think this was so much about the doll anyways. I love the story that unfolded with tommy and del. I think Koontz is a just a hopeless romantic :) many of his leads are reminiscent of his earlier works. But of course all writers usually lead back to their old stuff anyways.
Either way, I highly recommend this book. If you can over look the silliness of the doll you get a great love story, also love how he throws in the E.T. stuff. I like seeing he's not afraid to step in either direction easily talking about something spiritual, biblical, or about the unknown.
I feel alot of the older reviews are far too harsh about this book, I say take a read for yourself and you'll find it's not even half bad as some would say.
