I've read many of Dean Koontz's books and have liked them. Unfortunately, this isn't one of his best.

I love Dean Koontz - usually I have to have a dictionary handy to look up some of the words he uses, but that's one of the benefits of reading. This novel was very enjoyable, a story of wonder and hope that some how, some way, something will come and save us from ourselves.

Not sure where Koontz was going with this 'new-species-arriving-out-of-thin-air' thing. I found it to be a long winded burble about the loss of innocence, trying to recapture Eden, blah, blah, blah. Started out OK but then wandered off into Rainbows-and-Unicorns country. Wasn't my cup of tea but may be yours.

I like his books, and found this one interesting and, as usual, unique. It was a little slower than his usual suspense thrillers, but a good read.

Not one of his best, the bad guy seemed too far out there to be believable.

While all his books read like they are written to become a movie, this plot is good, with animal innocence and a world you wish would happen.

not one of his best... it seemed a bit slow and honestly some of the characters added absolutely NOTHING to the story... I was a little disappointed

VERY Slow. Not one of my favorites, and I'm usually a big Dean Koontz fan. I really wouldn't recommend this book. It seemed to drag and the climax (in my opinion) happened in the last 10 or so pages.
