one of my favorite books of all time. I have read Dean Koontz for years and this book is (in my humble opinion) one of his best stories. I read it years ago and just reread it with my husband...once again I couldn't read fast enough, andyet hated for it to end. One of my favorite things about Dean Koontz has always been his character development...even the Other is a strong character that I felt so sorry for, in the end. So worth reading!
