What in HADES has happened to my favorite author?????? I just can't keep track of all the disappointments I have had from Koontz in the last few years. I am a die hard fan and have been reading and collecting Dean for almost 30 years!!! Where did the master go??? Everytime I see a new title come out with his name, I gasp. I can't wait to get my hands on it and I pray each time that I will be sucked into a great story like Lightening, The Husband, Dark Rivers of the Heart, Servents of Twilght, Strangers, maybe even back with the Snow Man!!! Something remininscent of my all time favorite author and with this book, I couldn't even finish it. I was so utterly bored that I almost cried. There were glimmers of a good story...it was spooky and the characters were great...the bad guy...BAD...but what the hell was going on that it was dragging and dragging...I don't need to read about a shadow in a mirror for 200 pages...ugh...get to something cool already!!! I need that spooky sound in Phantoms to get someone's face off and make me want to turn the pages...not delete it from my Kindle. DEAN!!! GO BAcK!!!! Find that WRITER again...don't make me run away and read more teen fiction....agghhhh...I am hopind and praying the new Odd book is MUCH better...please....please, please!!!
