A great accomplishment!

I believe that this novel is by far one of the best I have ever had the privilege of reading. as for some of the more unappreciative readers I would recommend reading Strieber's 'Communion' and 'The Grays' to truly understand the mind of Whitley Strieber. In all honesty...

In all honesty this book was a great read and I would highly recommend giving it a chance, though I would also recommend reading Communion and The Grays before judging the creativity of this novel.

How can this get good reviews?

I'm very shocked at the good reviews I see here. I read this book right after "The Grays" and wow was I disappointed. The plotline is very poor, straight out of a second rate "Tales from the Darkside" episode, or a movie that the SciFi channel would make. The characters...

The plotline is very poor, straight out of a second rate "Tales from the Darkside" episode, or a movie that the SciFi channel would make. The characters, with the exception of Martin, are very poorly defined and seem to change personalites from chapter to chapter. I just didn't care what happened to anyone in this book, or where the story was going. Do not read this expecting it to be along the same lines as The Grays.

    Not even a TINY bit as good as I thought it would be.

    I ordered this book for reading material while I recovered from back surgery. My husband read it first. This book was all over the place. It goes straight into stories about Earths in other dimentions, but the only way you can figure it out, is on your own, and because there is a font difference. Once that confusion is done, you are well into the book. The book seems like it is randon chapters of 3 books. It jumps HUGE amounts of time and just goes on, like you should already know what happened in the chapters that aren't in to book. I would have stopped after the first few chapters, but my husband bet me that it would be too bad for me to finish. I stuck it out, hoping it would get better....IT DIDN'T!! A few chapters later my hubby asked how it was going, and it said it could turn out ok as long as......and I rattled off a cheesy senario and ending. (I won't tell cause you might still decide to buy it) Well, more than 75% of my rant really happened in to book. If you like books that sit on the fence between really out there and a really weird dream you have when you eat something wrong before bed, then this is your book. I'm just really glad that I got a bunch of other books to read too.
