did not like it
Read in March, 2009

So far reading like a straight, fairly awful, romance novel (why this from Koontz I don't know). Still on audio CD 1. Hopefully it will get better.

Now on cd 3 and the dialogue is pure drivel. A woman in peril story, oh and the woman is suppose to be a physicist but speaks like a complete idiot. Plus, the woman narrator (audio version) doesn’t help with her impressions of the older nurse, who she makes sound like Mother Goose. This doesn’t remotely read like a Koontz book. Plot is slow and flat. Characters not believable in both stubstance and manner of speech. Lifetime TV movies must be better than this. the end of the 3rd CD I had to stop. Having read a lot of Koontz books it seems like someone else wrote this and put their name on it. Don't waste your time; zero stars.

Neb Sounds like you had the same recording I did. I did a LOT of skipping.

Tiberius Bones A bad narrator can ruin a good or decent book...
