it was ok
bookshelves: horror-thriller, fiction
Recommended to Carlotta by: gift given to me
Recommended for: no one
Read from August 05 to 09, 2010 — I own a copy , read count: 1

This book was given to me as a gift for my birthday by my boyfriend so I love that he gave it to me. However, Mr. Koontz could have written this story in half the pages. He spent more time beating the same jokes to death, describing nothing of interest, and repeating characteristics of his characters. The story could have been more interesting, regardless of how much it reminded me of some of his other works, if he had cut out about half of the pages. The book felt to me like he had a page quota to make, and by God, he was going to make it.
The only reason I gave it two stars was because of how interesting the daughter characters were, how much the parents loved them, and because my boyfriend, whom I adore, gave it to me and tried to find something I would enjoy.
