One of his greatest

I thought that this was one of the greatest ones that he has written. I didn't want to ever put it down. It is worth the time to read.

This is one of Koontz's first novels, written originally under a pen name. It's definitely not up to par with his latest works but it wasn't bad either.

A mother looses her son to a tragic accident while he's on a scouting trip in the Nevada mountains. A year later and she's coping....until two words show up on her dead sons chalkboard. NOT DEAD. Lots of mysterious paranormal incidents occur that lead the mother and her new flame on a hunt to uncover what has been covered up and to discover why.

The Eyes of Darkness was a good story but it didn't have enough depth. Why the events occurred was explained but the how part was left a mystery. The characters were very cardboard with very little background. If this was written by the Koontz of today I think it would make a great book.

    I Loved It But It Took Too Long

    When I started the book, I couldn't put it down but towards the middle, it got a little drawn out and lengthy. I put it down for months before picking it back up. However, the last chapters really wind the book up and tie the loose ends so, its a good read but prepare for some long winded chapters.
