Koontz - What the Night Knows - truly terrifying / 5 out of 5 stars!

What the Night KnowsWhat the Night Knows by Dean Koontz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I was about 100 pages into this book, a creeping sense of dread catapulted to abject fear for the people in the book. If this was written by another writer, I may have abandoned it entirely, but being a long time Dean Koontz fan, I pushed through the fear and an amazingly intricate plot. To say much more would ruin the story for others.

Koontz creates the characters of this book so vividly that they came alive for this reader. He does this well with his other books, but this is a particularly intricate story weaving the fate of those characters so unpredictably, that that I was literally on the edge of my seat through the last 100 pages. My trust in Koontz and his ideals in storytelling were renewed with this book.

If you are a delicate person who can't take the heat and terror in this book, then you should stay away from it. But if you are ready to take the plunge into a truly horrifying tale, you should indeed take that leap as I did.
