77SS started out good, mysterious and intriguing. I thought it was a haunted house story but it's not. Which is cool too.

However, in the mid-way point, I was tired of the same long winded descriptions of grotesque and nasty things, the same thing over and over. I lost my momentum and found myself putting the book down more easily and not in much of a rush to get back to it.

It wasn't a bad book, just not one of Koontz's best.

Dustin Crazy little brown owl I felt the same way.

Amanda D i agree, midway it gets really slow and you have to really make an effort to continue. I am almost finished now and feel that the book could have been quite a bit shorter.

Bridget Anaya Having the same problem. Loved the first part, but now waiting for something to happen.

Niel Same here. Really into the first half. Seemed a chore after that.

Fawn I agree completely. It wasn't bad... perhaps long winded? I kept falling asleep, I had to renew at the library to finish.
