1.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awful, May 7, 2007
I have listened to every Patricia Cornwell book in audio version on the market. Hearing the reader's familiar voice (Kate Redding), I settled back to enjoy another Patricia Cornwell intrigue. What a letdown this book is. The characters are dull and ridiculous, the plot is fluff - no substance - a real yawner!

Very disappointing! Bring back Kay Scarpetta!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous, November 18, 2005
This review is from: Odd Thomas (Hardcover)
Dean Koontz must be running out of subject material. He went from writing edge of the seat thrillers to verbose novels that get bogged down in minutia. I listened to half of this book on CD and finally gave up.

Odd Thomas starts out to be an interesting character and the idea that he sees the dead and spirits of the underworld is very intriguing. At first I thought this would be a different kind of thriller. However, Odd's obsession with Stormy and his constant sappy conversations about and with her are lame. Then, for him to see a dead little girl who was raped and killed are one thing; when he sees Elvis (who keeps changing outfits) weeping and looking down a woman's cleavage - it borders on the absurd.

Most happenings in this book takes so long to unfold, they become anti-climactic. I saw a lot of the other reviews who gave this a 4+ star rating and all I can say is everyone has their own taste.

I am going to stay away from Dean Koontz for a while as long as he keeps writing this kind of drivel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Story - but Long - Long - Long..., June 22, 2005
This review is from: False Memory (Audio Cassette)
A fabulous story and plot ruined by the minutiae of seemingly endless nonsensical dialogue. I could not wait to get to the last tape of this audiobook, but almost gave up many times in frustration. What could have been a gloriously diabolical intrigue has been spoiled by sheer boredom.
