it was ok
Read in December, 2009

Well, it's the lowest rating I've given a Koontz book. I guess part of the reason is the expectations I've created for the series.

Things I didn't like about this one:
it seemed too drawn out. 100 pages for the first scrum with the bad guys...and it didn't seem that important, even in retrospect.

no bodachs

Sinatra was okay, but I liked the way Elvis was addressed better, and that it was over three books instead of one

would have liked a return to Pico Mundo instead of here...characters had less time to develop, and arrival seemed less congruent than previous venues

On the positive side, I still enjoy Odd as a character and his humor. I like the addition of Boo as a constant, and the climax of the book laid grounds for the series to fact, I enjoyed the ending more as to what could be forthcoming than for this book.

In spite of my disappointment here, I will continue to read the series, not unlike a fan of James Bond movies who will always go to new releases regardless of dislike of theme or the latest Bond actor.
