Not one of his best books but it was still pretty good. It took awhile for me to really become hooked - the second half was A LOT better than the first half. It started slowly but ended really well.

This one slows down a little in the middle, but the beginning grabs you and it picks back up for the last third of the book or so. It made me cry at the end (just a little - it is John Saul). Overall a well written work with a satisfying ending.

Alex Lonsdale was one of the most popular kids in La paloma. Until the horrifying car accident. Until a brilliant doctor's medical miracle brought him back from the brink of death.
He seems the same. But in his eyes there is a terrible blankness. In his heart there is a coldness. And if his parents, his friends, his girlfriend could see inside his brain,if they could see his dreams, they would be terrified.

Boring, silly, and annoyingly slow.

Strange book, but interesting enough to keep your attention. He was the star of high school until he had an automobile accident. The doctor brought their son back from the brink of death, but at what cost? Do they really want to know? Kind of chilling storyline.

I felt this book, besides the ending which I felt was a little weak, was compelling and satisfying. The plot flows well and keeps up pretty well until, like I said, the final chapter. Otherwise, I was pretty engrossed in this book.

A cry for vengeance pierced the night. That evil still lives. That vengeance still waits. Waits for Alex Lonsdale. Waits for the...Brainchild.
