The humor in the story made it a good read that was different than most Dean Koontz books. I especially liked Del in the story. Scooty Wootums was an interesting character too. I'd recommend it to anyone, though it isn't the best Dean Koontz ever, but it is definately worth reading.

I loved this book. It was fast-paced and exciting and funny. I have always thought Koontz should make a series of this, I would be interested.

That would be a good idea. With Del and her secrets, it would be a fantastic series.

Although not the best DK book in my opinion, I still thought it was great. It was definately one of the more "impossible to happen in real life" books, but I thought the chemistry and dialog between Del and Tuong Tommy was terrific. It was a little scary and very funny, and Tommy's mother stole ever scene she was in. Tommy's mother was my favorite character. One thing I didn't understand was this:

At the end, when the monster broke the rules by breaking into the house, what stopped him from breaking the rule about dying at sunrise? But overall a fun read

i loved the beginning of this book, then it started getting weird and i was disapointed in it. looking back it was a good book just not what i expected after reading the first few chapters.
