A page turner
on 6 July 2010
I'm a big fan of Dean Koontz and so far this is one of his best stories yet. His writing style is brilliant yet simple to read and understand. With other authors, they tend to get carried away with big words and endless sentences that seem to run on and on with metaphors that run into other metaphors and so on. By the end of some sentences you lose track completely. With Dean Koontz it's all clear-cut, and easy to follow, rather like watching and absorbing an incredibly detailed film.
This book was a real page turner. On one hand you've got the worries and dangers of L.A and in the other you've got the dangers of the deep, dark wilderness in Montana. The stark contrast between the man-made dangers of L.A and the other-worldly, spooky dangers of the Montana wildnerness is really well done.
The imagination that went into the book - the storyline, the imagery, the descriptions - make this, in my opinion, one of his best books I've ever read. If you love horror and deep-thinking and you love that fear of the unknown, then this book is definitely for you.
