1.0 out of 5 stars Weirdly stupid...., 26 Sept. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Deficiency (Paperback)
...or perhaps stupidly weird. I bought this thinking it was a mystery but it's more like bad science fiction with a big dollop of woman-in-distress thrown in. The plot's just stupid beyond belief and the writing simplistic and dull. Maybe vampire and werewolf fans would like this, but I had to skim after about page 25.

2.0 out of 5 stars The basic idea is ok, but it doesn't deliver, 26 Jan. 2006

This review is from: Deficiency (Paperback)
I am a crime and mystery fan, and bought this book based on the synopsis, not having previously read anything else from Andrew Neiderman.
Its hard to explain exactly what I didn't like without turning this review into a spoiler, but basicly the main character of the book, the murderer, who and what he is, is just not explained good enough to be even nearly believable.
And because of that, this book has no real underlining story, except of being a 370 page manhunt, but without any attachment to the characters a manhunt is never really that exciting.

1.0 out of 5 stars pathetic rubbish, 16 July 2006
This review is from: Deficiency (Paperback)
Dean Koontz thinks of an outline for a story, but decides it is too silly to turn into a book.

He sends the outline to Dan Brown's 8-year old son, who has asked him for advice on writing a novel to give to his father as a birthday present.

If such a thing were to happen, the result would be something like this book.

However, it would probably be better!

It might have been written on a bad day, so I gave Neiderman another chance and read another one of his books. If anything,it was even worse.
