The City: A Novel

The City: A Novel by Dean Koontz

Dean Koontz is at the peak of his acclaimed powers with this major new novel.
A young boy, a musical prodigy, discovering life’s wonders—and mortal dangers. 
His best friend, also a gifted musician, who will share his journey into destiny. 
His remarkable family, tested by the extremes of evil and bound by the depths of love . . . on a collision course with a band of killers about to unleash anarchy. 
And two unlikely allies, an everyday hero tempered by the past and a woman of mystery who holds the key to the future. 

These are the people of The City, a place where enchantment and malice entwine, courage and honor are found in the most unexpected quarters, and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart. Brilliantly illumined by magic dark and light, their unforgettable story is a riveting, soul-stirring saga that speaks to everyone, a major milestone in the celebrated career of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz and a dazzling realization of the evergreen dreams we all share. 

3.0 out of 5 stars A miss for KoontzJuly 28, 2014
This review is from: The City: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
A miss for Koontz. I love this author. I have read almost every book by him. But this one was awful. It took me days to get through the first 60% of it. The story was very slow, it dragged on and on and I couldn't enjoy it. Half the time I had no clue what was going on. The story rambled on here and there and all over the place. The ending was a lot better, but there's no way I'll ever read this book again. The end is not worth days of slow, awful droll. It's sad that this was such a miss for Koontz. He's on of my faves. I guess I'll just wait and check out the next release.
