A good idea, spoiled when the author remembered he was Dean Koontz. A very strange and facinating early novel by Koontz Highly enjoyable. This seems to be a bridge between Koontz s Sci Fi early stuff and his signature horror ofrecent vintage I didn t really care much for this one though, there was no one to like or root for Every character in the book was either evil, self serving, or undeveloped I guess I m like Bonnie Tyler I need a hero. I have read many of the early Koontz novels and this is my favorite of those This has always been one of those I wish he would have decided to update and redo It is an interesting premise and a well told story. It s only a short story, but it flows well, without the Eclesian chatter and is a pretty good spooky tale. Not 100% sure about this book I didn t think it was one of Koontz s best, even among his early works that I have been reading recently If I was to categorize it I would have to say it was a sci fi horror The basic plot is that sometime in the future there is a very sparsely populated planet earth with the majority of the population having left once the environmental problems with the planet got too bad On the planet is a puppet master who uses alien tech to create puppets for use in perf Not 100% sure about this book I didn t think it was one of Koontz s best, even among his early works that I have been reading recently If I was to categorize it I would have to say it was a sci fi horror The basic plot is that sometime in the future there is a very sparsely populated planet earth with the majority of the population having left once the environmental problems with the planet got too bad On the planet is a puppet master who uses alien tech to create puppets for use in performances These puppets are in essence living entities created using some kind of clone technology At the end of the performances they are returned to their constituent parts and new ones created By the end of the book these puppets have developed their self awareness to the point whereby they begin to turn on their creator There are a lot of pseudo religious passages about the man god conundrum and the perils that lie in wait for man who takes on the god like qualities of creation There were some definite parallels between the puppets becoming self aware and the fears of AI in current society and what happens if the creation becomespowerful than the creator This was an OK book which heled to pass the time on the train, but it was nothing special Ok then I don t know what I read At the end it seemed to parallel the death of Christ I was not pleased and for the majority of the book nothing made sense to me The only thing that was clear was Sebastian had a mental disability that no one probably understood and it was to their detriment Also, Bettina was a stone cold bitch. A very early book by Koontz The central idea, of living puppets who overthrow their puppet master is quite interesting and the story was basically good Koontz certainly developed into a better storyteller later, however. Ok So, I got this as a birthday present and despite the fact it s novella length at best, took three months to read it I loved it though Koontz really works in nice biblical references Of course I had to knock off one star for being slightly politically incorrect. I didn t hate this While I do think it could have had 20% or so cut, it held my interest, and the characters didn t make me want to see them all dead sooner rather than later And that s pretty unusual for me and Koont s work so far Certainly the best thing by him that I ve read thus far.
