5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book, 1 Aug 2014
I loved this book. Its storyline twists and turns revealing the characters’ intimate lives and terrible secrets.
I‘m not a great fan of poetry but I found myself becoming fascinated and obsessed (like Andrea the MC) with the legend of the great Rimbaud. Greedily I turned the pages, eager to know more about his volatile love life, wonderful prose and whether Andrea had really discovered one of his lost masterpieces.

The book has so many delicious strands which weave together as the story grows and reaches its final and unexpected climax. If your fan of great writing, characterisation and entertaining stories – then buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pacing, 23 July 2013
Intensity is probably my all time favourite Koontz novel and in pacing, this book gets very close to it. It's an easy read with some great twists and turns that keep you turning the pages at speed. I wasn't terrified (as I was reading Intensity) but I was entertained.

Character wise, I thought the protagonist's parents and brother were great creations and very chilling. Looking forward to some more fast-paced action, Mr Koontz!
