It is so bad I was wondering through the entire read if this was actually ghost-written.
Some have said Koontz keeps reinventing himself as if this were in the vein of, say, The Husband or Relentless. Not in a long shot.
It reads nothing like a Koontz novel and I felt like it was a complete waste of time. It gives you the full-life story of a boy named Jonah and his relationship with "The City" (or is it a woman?)
It used to be that Koontz could keep me riveted to the pages without having to resort to Dan Brown-ian style ending to chapters; i.e. "And then the horrific happened..."
Do yourself a favor - skip this book - if you're a Dean Koontz fan, reread Sole Survivor or The Taking.
