Overview

Frankenstein: The Dead Town by Dean Koontz, Christopher Lane

FRANKENSTEIN: THE DEAD TOWN

The war against humanity is raging. As the small town of Rainbow Falls, Montana, comes under siege, scattered survivors band together to weather the onslaught of the creatures set loose upon the world. As they ready for battle against overwhelming odds, they will learn the full scope of Victor Frankenstein’s nihilistic plan to remake the future — and the terrifying reach of his shadowy, powerful supporters.

Now the good will make their last, best stand. In a climax that will shatter every expectation, their destinies and the fate of humanity hang in the balance.

“Koontz is a master of the edge-of-your-seat, paranoid thriller and perhaps the leading American practitioner of the form.”
—The Star-Ledger

“Koontz writes first-rate suspense, scary and stylish.”
—Los Angeles Times

“A rarity among bestselling writers, Koontz continues to pursue new ways of telling stories, never content with repeating himself. He writes of hope and love in the midst of evil in profoundly inspiring and moving ways.”
—Chicago Sun-Times

I really got into the "new" Frankenstein story that D.K. started. Purchased the first book on a long flight from New Mexico because I didn't have the time to charge my Nook. Man...after the first book I bought the rest and couldn't wait for the final installment. Finished it in 2 days! What a let down! D.K. gets you moving in the first hundred pages and you start to think "Oh, no...I see I'm going to have to wait for ANOTHER installment if I'm going to finish the storyline." No worries there. D.K. got lazy (or deadline...publisher hounding him??) and packed in the last 20 pages with quick notes about each character and then your done. NO CLIMAX!!! Hello! We readers...well.. if you haven't heard...we kind of like those things! I felt like D.K. got sick of writing the story and finished the end as quick as possible! Quite disappointed. Trust me, you will finish this book thinking, "Really? That's how ya gonna do us!"

Dean Koontz has a few books that I would give at least 4 1/2 stars, but The Dead Town isn't one of them. Koontz too often wraps up the plots quickly at the end. In The Dead Town he broke a record for swiftness and happy endings. At the same time, the plot bogged down in places when some actions were repeated with different (and new) characters. Example: scenes of the Builders doing their stuff, or Communitarians obsessing over something. The repetitions could be dropped and the ending be given greater development. The evil villain of the piece is a disappointment--arrogant and boring. But then, evil often is. The final scene between Deucalion and Victor Immaculate isn't particularly dramatic. And there is a last minute revelation about a replicant on a gurney that doesn't go anywhere, even though it's huge. (Is Koontz leaving the door open for a future novel?) The happy endings in the last two pages came fast and furious, and weren't all believable. I had to read the book to see how Koontz resolved everything, but found it disappointing. It felt as though Koontz was tired of the subject and wanted to get it over with. One light note was Jocko. He's always fun. And I have to say that I liked the reason for the breakdown of the Xerox Boze. So, read it, but don't expect great entertainment.

Loved the characters, and the book - up until the ending. Like the other reviewers, I felt the book may have been rushed, resulting in a terrible ending.

The book was pretty good. After four previous books in the series I felt pretty comfortable with the lead characters. This book though spent a lot of time on extra descriptions and information other than developing the characters though the climax and ultimate conclusion of the entire series. I don't know, I guess for me it was kind of a rushed finish leading into a minor personal let down after spending the time to read all five books in the series. Carson and Michael didn't have a ton of time interacting in this one. Their banter was pretty cool in the first four books. Deucalion was such a unique reinvention of the typical Frankenstein monster. In this one he just kind of did his thing and we had to kind of accept the fact that it was his destiny and that the ending was as it should have been. I'm okay with that I guess. I just wish this story could have gotten us there a little better and had a bit more of a fitting ending for a five book, six years in the making series. That's a long time to devote to a series of books and be left wishing that it could have given just a bit more. If you're a fan of Koontz, I am a big fan and will still read anything he writes, then give it a go also. I will say that I hope that he leaves this series here. It was originally supposed to have been a trilogy. The third book was a bit of a letdown too. The fourth book definitely redeemed the series and third book. The fifth book left something to be desired though. In the end I guess that if you've taken the time to have read the first four books then definitely go ahead and read this one so you can have the whole story. If you haven't read them all then make your own decisions on wether to embark on the journey.

I liked lost souls and dead town quite a bit but i feel they arent as good as the first three, the first three were alot more twisted and dark.

I liked this final volume in Dean Koontz's Frankenstein series. It is packed cover to cover with action, horror, and fringe-type science. He is highly creative and imaginative, and I'm curious to watch the movie based on the first book in the series. The Builders are both a curiosity and soul shattering creepy. The Communitarians are tiresome in their OCD tidiness and everything being in perfect order. Victor Helios's clone is perfectly mad. I mean that he is too smart in his building a perfect world that he is both crazy and brilliant. Jocko is one of the best characters ever created. I never get tired of reading about him. Ultimately, it all comes down to not only stopping Victor Immaculate's plan/mission, but who will survive the confrontation between father/creator and son/monster, Deucalion or Victor?

This book ends a series that began very well. It is timed as the "second half" of the fourth book. Neither the fourth nor fifth book is Koontz's best writing, and they are a let-down from the first three books of the series. Buy this if you want to know what happens, but don't expect the best.

I really loved this series. Characters you can really care about. A monster who is not really a monster. The monster is a man who made him. Koontz did a fine job in retelling an old story. The five-book series must be read in order to make sense.
