This truley is one of my favorite books. I have read lots of horror books in my life but by far this is the best i have read. Koontz is now one of my favorite authors now that i have read this book. It is truly amazing!

I dont know...about this book!!!

The book in the beginning was very interesting. Then it starts to drag and become more and more uninteresting. Then at the end it picks back up then maybe 2 or 3 pages to the end. It gets DEAD again. N to be honest the ending of this book sucked. It didn't tell no more ...

N to be honest the ending of this book sucked. It didn't tell no more about the mom. It didn't tell no more about how was their life after they left the fun house. I didn't like it, I thought the ending could have been better.

    Not what I expected

    I was deeply disappointed at the development of the story and the end. The characters were not well developed nor were the conclusion worth reading all night. It could have waited until a day where one is bored and needed to do something.

    Good!

    Would love to have read more about after the fact. Good story but just feel that something was missing.

    Read this if you like to be on the edge of your seat.....

    This is not a book for everyone. Not for book clubs either but if you like deep scary stories this is the book for you. I've never really liked funhouses and now even less.

    A good starter

    This was the book that got me started on Dean Koontz. Not one of his best, but enough to get me turned on to him. Now they just get better and better and I have a hard time putting any of his books down

    The Funhouse

    I really liked this book a lot until the ending. It dragged out a bit through the book and the ending was real fast. Other than that, I really did like it. I wonder though, what happened when Joey and Amy returned home? Did they return home? What was Ellen's reaction? It just left you with an "okay, what next" attitude. Maybe Koontz should make a sequal...
