I loved the storyline, and I felt the pace of the book was great. It had me interested throughout the whole book. I guess I was so interested I wanted more. I wanted more depth in the Doctors character and background (will not get into further detail). I felt as if the story did end rather abruptly but it was not a disappointing ending. I recommend this book it was an interesting story, and in the end it really gets you thinking.

I Have been a Dean Koontz fan for several years now, ever since reading Dark Rivers Of The Heart. I feel that Hideaway is one of his best ever. It has one of the most memorable villains in all his books, and two genuine and heroic main characters. The way Koontz describes the underground setting of Vassago's home is brilliant. He paints vivid and haunting images throughout the entire story. If you've never read a Koontz novel, you will love Hideaway. If you have read Koontz, you will love it even more. I could barely put it down.

From the beginning you feel as if you are transported into a dark mystery that has no escape. Soon your reading in a frenzy to find out how these two people can overcome the odds and survive the most thrilling pages you¿ll ever read.

This book has an amazing storyline and plot that just becmes more and more interesting as you read it. Koontz' has a gift for creating characters that become unbelieveably real. I felt that the book was overall well worth the read. The only part that I have a bone to pick with is the ending. I feel that the suspense was built up to nothing and that it ended very quickly. Other than that the book is awesome.

A quick, suspensful, and sometimes scary read about the battle of Good versus Evil here on earth, as played out by 2 people who have died, only to have been brought back to life with modern medicine.I found the first half of the book was too scary for me to read alone at night, but as the book went on, I became less and less scared. It is typical pop fiction writing, with the emphasis on page turning as opposed to fleshing out themes. I would have liked to have learned more about the nature of good and evil and maybe caught a glimpse of the author's ideas on the subject, but the focus was on action rather than philosphy and religion, although what conclusions the author did seem to make at the close of the book, I don't think I agree with. Or maybe, more accurately, the character's actions at the end of the book disappointed me after such a fantastical experience.This edition features an afterward by the author, discussion fan mail (hate mail) and the movie version that he fought to remove all association with.

Even though Knootz received bad publicity on this story, I personally liked it. Not his best work but worth my time!

Dean Koontz ties together a handful of genres as a family deals with horrific circumstances revolving around life and death. Its truly an interesting take on life and death, good and evil, etc. The story goes one way and then zags another. The characters were more real then they had any right to be and the author did a fine job making you care about almost all the characters. Overall, a very good book that would have been five stars had the ending not been anticlimactic.

From day one I have been a Koontz fan, and Hidaway did not let me down. I have read his books from the moment of publicatopn and re read them years later because I enjoy good story telling.

I've been reading Dean Koontz since 2011 with Hideaway being the 7th book and I knew it wouldn't disappoint. I can always count on Koontz to spin a thrilling tale. This book was great, especially if you like serial killer storylines. I really liked how the characters - Hatch & Lindsey Harrison, Dr. Jonas, Regina and of course Vassago - start to all tie in with each other. I felt the ending, the confrontation, was over too quickly. Maybe because I wanted more action; wanted more of Uriel the Angel, who appear out of nowhere. And I LUV the Regina character - the 10 year old girl the Harrisons adopted. She was a riot, so colorful. I'm now tempted to check out the Hideaway DVD with Jeff Goldblum and Alicia Silverstone.

This book was the first I had ever read from Koontz and I have been a fan ever since. There isn't a book he has written that I won't read. Amazing author.
