I don't think I have ever been disappointed with one of his tomes, this one kept me on the edge of my seat. Hated it to end!!!
I loved the way Dean Koontz tied up all the loose ends.
I'm a believer of reincarnation so for me this really was a good read.
Thriller plus reincarnation, what more could one ask for.
The story seems rushed and cumbersome. He stays way too long using up all the adjectives he can recall to describe every nook and cranny of a scene, but leaves the plot empty where more information or character development would help the reader to feel more "in" the plot. I like a story that transports me there, not just by descriptive scenery, but also with being able to feel the characters emotions etc.
The Mask felt like the first draft of a real novel. I usually have to tear myself away from a Dean Kontz novel because I am excited and curious about how the plot thickens, while at the same time not wanting to get to the end and finish my exhilarating experience...not this time. I completed The Mask in one sitting and the only jolt I got was when I got to the end.
The abrupt, untidy ending wasn't even the sort that made you feel like maybe there is a part 2. Au contraire, the ending felt like Koontz got annoyed with writing this annoyingly written novel and just decided to end it there so he could go on to spend more time on his better written novels.
However, the book was well written and interesting. I would go a far as to call the book a page turner. Maybe, I missed an important point in the book? But, I don't think I did.
I recommend that you read the book. Maybe, you will have a better understanding of the book's ending than I did.
