Book Description
A catastrophic, unexplainable plane crash leaves three hundred and thirty dead -- no survivors. Among the victims are the wife and two daughters of Joe Carpenter, a Los Angeles Post crime reporter.

A year after the crash, still gripped by an almost paralyzing grief, Joe encounters a woman named Rose, who claims to have survived the crash. She holds out the possibility of a secret that will bring Joe peace of mind. But before he can ask any questions, she slips away.

Driven now by rage (have the authorities withheld information?) and a hope almost as unbearable as his grief (if there is one survivor, are there others?), Joe sets out to find the mysterious woman. His search immediately leads him into the path of a powerful and shadowy organization hell-bent on stopping Rose before she can reveal what she knows about the crash.

Sole Survivor unfolds at a heart-stopping pace, as a desperate chase and a shattering emotional odyssey lead Joe to a truth that will force him to reassess everything he thought he knew about life and death -- a truth that, given the chance, will rock the world and redefine the destiny of humanity.

    IT WAS SO GOOD! I started this book on a Saturday morning and could not put it down. Seriously, I had finsihed the book by Saturday evening. It is the type of book that the story hooks you from the first line and you just have to find out what happens. If you are the type of person who likes suspense, mystery, and a little bit of science fiction this book will be right up your alley!

    Il problema con Koontz è che tu lo leggi, pensi "ah, carino!", lo riponi e due mesi dopo non ricordi più nulla. Scrive bene, conosce tutti i trucchi e sa spaventare, ma la sostanza è carente. ...continue

    Il problema con Koontz è che tu lo leggi, pensi "ah, carino!", lo riponi e due mesi dopo non ricordi più nulla. Scrive bene, conosce tutti i trucchi e sa spaventare, ma la sostanza è carente. Questo "Sole Survivor" poi mi ha infastidito per il pesante approccio - uso una parola di moda - teocon. Bah!

    This is my first book of Dean Koontz. I am not sure whether I will like this book or not. The first night when I started the reading, I fell into sleep before I even finished chapter 1.

    I don't really like the style, but hopefully the drama could make me stick with the book and awake most of the time. Hopefully.

    I don't like this book. The first half of the book is to establish the mystry of Flight 353 crash. Then suddenly the reader is introduced to the intellident design theory. This does not make sense to me. Even the search behavior of the parents who lost beloved ones is weak. It cannot help explain the no-mystry in this book. I don't get the book at all. Don't spend money on it.
