Dean Koontz’s Lost Souls-Frankenstein 4

Overview: And it only gets better. Erika Swedenborg, formerly Erika Five, has just had the shock of her life. She just saw a dead man walking. Victor Frankenstein died in New Orleans, Louisiana, so how is he still walking around in Rainbow Falls, Montana? And why? One thing is for certain. It’s time to call in the re-enforcements. Luckily for all involved, er most of time anyway, Deucalion has also started having suspicions that Victor has returned. Will killing him twice end his reign of terror? Or is this Victor Frankenstein worse than the original?

Story Telling: Once again, we’ve gotten a science-fiction tale, complete with robots this time.

Likes: Oh, how cute. Erika got flirted with. Even cuter? She’s not even aware of it.

Jocko has become the world’s greatest hacker. I call it cheating. He uses all four limbs.

Carson needs help. Her mommy instincts are getting in the way of her nerve. It was kind of cute when she used her instincts to get information out of the editor.

Dislikes: I just thought that the original Victor Frankenstein was egotistical. I was wrong. His clone is much worse. But, you have to give him credit. He is dedicated enough to soprano-ize himself. Poor deluded idiot.

The Builders are gross. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

Oh, I had a problem with how Carson and Michael dealt with Chrissy. I don’t know how to handle that situation, but there had to be a better way than lying.

Nummy’s Grandmama didn’t do him any favors. Yes, according to the world, Nummy was incapable of thinking clearly, but that doesn’t make him stupid. Everyone can learn. Nummy can have some responsibility. It’s my belief, I guess. Everyone is a genius in his or her field, and an idiot in another’s field.

Favorite Character: So many of the townspeople had good hearts. Also Erika has proven herself to be a good mother.

Favorite Quote: Deucalion would make a wonderful mystic. ““Like life everywhere,” Deucalion replied. “Meaningful from top to bottom, but mysterious in every direction.””

Favorite Scene: This one is a little tricky. Mainly because there were two…chapters. And you get the best effect by reading the whole chapter.

The first one was when Erika returns home with the Jim James Bakery cinnamon rolls. To put it mildly, it’s Jocko’s antics that make the chapter.

The second is when the Builders tried to crash The Riders in the Sky Church Social. Tried being the operative word. That’s all you’re getting. Just remember, this is small town Montana. The only thing worse for the Builders would have been small town Texas.

Conclusion: This one kind of ended on a cliffhanger. But I liked it. Come on book five.
