Why did it have to end?

I have read most of Dean Koontz's books and this is definitely at the top of my list. I couldn't put it down. His other book that had this effect was "From the Corner of His Eye." I finished both of these books feeling so fulfilled by what I had read.

a BANG of a concept delivered with a barely audible thud.

There are too many story lines to keep the reader interested and they never come together with much of an impact. When the book is finally over, you may end up thinking, "hmm, that's kind of an interesting concept", but you're more likely to regret wasting your time. ...
There are too many story lines to keep the reader interested and they never come together with much of an impact. When the book is finally over, you may end up thinking, "hmm, that's kind of an interesting concept", but you're more likely to regret wasting your time. I would have stopped in the middle of it, but since I've read all of Koontz's books, I figured I might as well finish it. It falls far short of his talent. Better than "Your heart belongs to me" (which was a painful read), but not by much. I'm such a fan of his that I kind of feel bad for him.
If you want the real Koontz, read "Life Expectancy", "One Door Away From Heaven", "Cold Fire", "The Good Guy", "Dark Rivers of the Heart", "Watchers", "Intensity", or the "Frankenstein series". Those were Koontz at his best.
