January 8, 2010 | Leave a comment 3.5/5 I just got done reading this book again after 10+ years for a book club. It’s not the best writing in the world, but it is a really cool and original story – and has some obscenely creepy characters. I’m also a word nerd and Koontz comes up with some doozies. Here is a small sampling: terpsichorean, epicanthic, threnodies, fulgurate, scruted, spavined and crepuscular. I have about 20 more but didn’t want to overwhelm anybody 🙂 If you like horror, I really think this is worth the time. A very original and scary storyline, forgive him for some of the writing.
