Please don't watch the movie!

I can honestly say that this is the only novel so far that has gave me chills. I have to say that the part where the police officer goes into the freezer realy did it for me. That image should be stuck in readers minds forever (read the book and you'll get it.) There are also many references to God, which really add to this paranormal experience. The dark tone of the story and the town being completely 'deserted' REALLY sets the mood and the characters are the best I've ever heard of in a book. Seriously, go get it.

This book is awful

I really did not like this book at all. It is not good horror. If you are looking for a ghost story, this isn't it. This is some weird sci-fi stuff that was just annoying. It was like Dean Koontz just decided half-way through the book that he needed to hurry up and ...
I really did not like this book at all. It is not good horror. If you are looking for a ghost story, this isn't it. This is some weird sci-fi stuff that was just annoying. It was like Dean Koontz just decided half-way through the book that he needed to hurry up and write the ending, so he just hurried through it and made all these impossible conclusions. It was really bad. Don't read it unless you like that sort of thing.

    A hmm moment...

    I love Dean Koontz and although this book makes you think about what could have happened to the colonies that have disappeared in history, i just didn't like it. There were too many stories about characters that didn't need to exist. I was curious about all of the back story so I continued to read it until the end. Fantastic writer...definitely not my favorite book of his.
