Summary

An ordinary parking lot in southern California. Christine Scavello and her six-year-old son are accosted by a strange old woman. "I know who you are," the woman snaps at the boy. "I know what you are." A scream, a threat - and then a grotesque act of violence. Suddenly Christine's pride and joy, her only son, is targeted by a group of religious fanatics. They've branded him the Antichrist. They want to kill him. And they are everywhere.

End a little dissapointing

Good book overall, interesting story line. Performance by Angela Dawe great. Unfortunately ending wasn't great. Readers ability to change voice for characters was very impressive.

Good story until the end!!

Where does The Servants of Twilight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've not been that lucky with audiobooks I must confess, so this one is up there, but that's not much of a benchmark!!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Rubbish!! It was the ending that spoiled it for me - felt rushed and was an anticlimax.

Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You can run but you can't hide!!

Any additional comments?

Really good story right up until the end.

A Good Listen!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I wanted to. It hardly seemed like 15 hours. The suspense kept me engaged. I read this many years ago when first published and I've seen the movie but the audiobook still had me glued to the earphones. If you are a Dean Koontz fan it's a must listen. The narrator's voice seemed a bit shrill at first but I soon forgot all about it. Overall a very good experience.

Exciting but Simplistic Old Koontz

I had read this many years ago under the title Twilight and I did not notice this was the same book before I ordered it. It is pretty early Koontz and, although the writing is better than most in the genre, this is substantially below Koontz's best work. The characterizations are somewhat weak, and the story, although exciting, is a little simplistic. I really did not like the narration which was a bit nasal and really grated on me. I did learn to live with the narration, but never liked it. The story and characters kept me interested but not really engaged. The end was very mildly unexpected and unlike most Koontz is mildly enigmatic. There is one R rated sex scene which might bother some people and some treatment of religion that some might find sacrilegious. I certainly would not listen to this again with this narrator.
