“I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!....When you think of Dean Koontz you don't associate 'laugh out loud....funny....make you smile' type of books. Well this one.....while having some really intense events and some heartbreaking moments.....was really humorous. I loved that aspect of the book. Jimmy Tock has a crazy wonderful life as a baker but because of the events surrounding his birth.....he will have a lifetime of angst and danger and fear weave in and out of his everyday routines. His parents and grandmother are wonderful and the FOOD they enjoy is incredible....I'm salivating at this moment thinking of all the goodies they enjoyed. Jimmy's wife, Lori was amazing in her wit and strength and together they were a grand married couple who took on parenthood with zeal and worked around all the 'bizarre' happenings that fell upon them. Conrad Bezo was a freak of a dark character and sometimes the storyline was a bit out there.....and of course, having a creepy clown in the story line always will cause you to shudder a bit.
I loved this book for the fact that it looked upon family as the most important part of life and made you feel that they treasured it. I feel that way about my family and it was great to see this among the Tock's. It was very different from Dean Koontz's other books but I definitely enjoyed it 100%!....”
