A good listen story but...

A good listen story but...you will have to suffer through some toe-curling sex descriptions (pink flowers, turgid nipples, his hardness, etc). In addition Dean Koontz is unfortunately unable to be subtle with his characters - if a character likes to paint - they are suddenly THE ONE AND ONLY AMAZINGLY TALENTED undiscovered artist EVER. If a character had a tough upbringing - not only was it THE WORST CHILDHOOD ever but they also find a reason to bring it up in virtually every situation to the point of teeth wrenching annoyance. He is also guilty of the American authors habit of being European pretentiouness - especially with Italian food - which is always found in THE BEST UNDISCOVERED BUT SMALL AND COSY AND WARM AND PERFECTLY AUTHENTIC ITALIAN RESTAURANT ever, which is obviously run by a friend of one of the main characters (who is always very generous with his/her PARM-E-ZHAAAN 'shavings'). Take it as a given that the wine compliments the food perfectly (and is never drunk, always... savoured) and the meal will always be gratis (but the AMAZING ARTIST CHARACTER will promise an INCREDIBLY WELL EXECUTED oil colour as a gift to say 'Tar'). In the same way John Grisham is guilty of shoe-horning Italy in to everything he can as well - just so he can rattle on about RICH DARK THICK SWEET COFFEE, PERFECTLY AL-DENTE PASSST-TAH and of course PARM-E-ZHAAAN SHAVINGS not grated, but SHAVINGS (of a brick sized block of cheese by the way, of course).

But...

If you get past that it's a very good and gripping listen equal parts horror, disgust and psycho nasty business. I nearly stopped listening at the first bedroom/sex scene. I am glad I did not.

Koontz delivers the goods again.

Good book, some interesting twists in the story but that is a trademark of the author. The suspense, horror and mystery that Koontz fans expect is all here. So far as I?m aware this is the only Dean Koontz novel released as a movie, I can?t say the adaptation was good at all and really didn?t like the film, but the book is great!
