Recommended!

Be sure to read both books in the Christopher Snow series! There was supposed to be a 3rd, but Koontz apparently never got around to writing it! Wish he would!

Boring Sleeper

While I am an avid Dean Koontz fan, and have read all his books to date, I find Seize The Night a boring sequal to Fear Nothing, which was equally boring. It has taken me a week to read 150 pages. I start to fall asleep everytime I read this book. Too much irrelevant...

I start to fall asleep everytime I read this book. Too much irrelevant detail and so far, nothing has transpired that has even made my heart skip a beat. I hope he doesn't write a third novel in this trilogy. I will, however, finish this book because I finish everything I start....no matter how boring!

    Poor

    Not much to say about this patehtic book, but it's far from entertaining. 'Seize the night' is so boring and the character's have much to be desired. Loved 'Fear Nothing', hated this one. Skip it and save yourself the grief.

    Stop the torture!

    This book was terrible!! The story went nowhere. It was good at some parts then horrible at others. The way more horrible and boring parts. Save yourself the anguish. Read Dan Brown instead.

    Extremely Disappointed

    I have been a fan of Dean Koontz for a long time and this book was by far the most disappointing. About 20 pages into the book I began to loose interest so I skimmed through the next 150 pages or so. Unfortunately it did not get any better, so I didn't waste any more of my time on it. I just couldn't stand to read any more of that 'surfer lingo'. Don't waste your money.

    Too much discription, not enough story

    First let me say that I LOVE Koontz! I have every one of his books in Hardback. This one I didnt even finish reading. In this book Koonz spent too much time describing things that have nothing to do with the story. If you love a fast paced edge of your seat read....this is not it. All his other books are a must read.

    Why so much detail?

    At this point I'm only up to page 110, but my frustration level is so high I had to write a review. I've read four or five Koontz books and enjoyed them all. 'Seize The Night' is boring me to tears. From page 66 to page 100 absolutely nothing happens. You will read in excruciating detail how a group of 'intelligent' monkeys move approximately 100 yards. I can find more excitement looking out my own window. My neighbors classify as more interesting monkeys than those in this story. I simply do not comprehend why Mr. Koontz has become minutely descriptive in this book. I find myself skimming pages just to move on to another subject. While many people thoroughly enjoy Ivan Doig books, which are not remotely related subjects to Koontz books, I must say my problem with both is the same. Mr. Doig will spend ten pages describing the relationship of a twig to the entire state of Montana, all to no end as far as I'm concerned. And this is exactly the sense I get with this book; intricate description, but no point.
