Innocence by Dean Koontz.
Okay, first off, put Dean Koontz in the category with Stephen King. I LOVE HIM. I have read nearly everything he has written, that I have been able to get my hands on so far. (Again, google play books gift cards are ALWAYS welcome *giggles*)
I do have my favorite by him, In the Corner of His Eye, and when I drag it out for the semi-annual re-read, I’ll post a review. It is such a complex and interwoven story, I wouldn’t be able to do it justice without a fresh read on my mind.
So, hubby surprised me with this one. I had zipped through the latest book for my book club in a couple of days, so, I get a message, “check google play books.” I’ll admit, I squealed like a little girl. *blush* Okay, onto my thoughts, and as usual SPOILER ALERT!!
I will actually say, Mr. Koontz confused me a bit on this one. I couldn’t quite figure out where we were going with our two main characters, Addison and Gwyneth, for a good chunk of the book. It’s a very fast paced story, going back and forth between Addison’s past and what was currently going on. Several interesting twists and turns throughout tho. Is it his best? No, but like I said, I already have a favorite. But, since I typically always do this, especially with newer works by any of my favorites, when I read in the letter from the author that the story was inspired by someone who wrote him after reading In the Corner of His Eye that gave me a bigger appreciation. I think as it typical with most Dean Koontz (or really any author) you either love it or you hate it. I still put it in the love category, and still give it my personal 5 stars, but I think if you’re reading Dean Koontz for the first time, choosing a different book to start is a better option. Go try the Odd series (which I still need to catch up on, again, play books please? giggles)
Onward to more reviews and post! Thank you for reading! Smile!
