After rekindling my once unfaltering relationship with author Dean Koontz, I was eager to dive into another one of his more recent novels. What the Night Knows took me back to the Dean Koontz I remember from writings past. It was funky and bizarre, and challenged the very fabric of our existence in this world. Paranormal fantasy oozed from the pages. This was the Koontz imagination I had been craving.
What the Night Knows channels the ideology that ghosts and curses chose to rear their ugly heads as a result of tragedies past. While it took me awhile to read this book (more thanks to lack of time rather than lack of a good story line), I was almost sad to reach its end. Koontz did such a good job of pulling you into each character’s life that you almost felt as if you were part of the story as well. The final chapters sent me into such a spell of frantic reading that I secretly wished I had taken a speed reading course years ago. For me this book painted a fresh and creative perspective on a topic that has been written to death (pun intended). I would happily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys writings of the paranormal variety and is not afraid of zany, scare tactic filled story lines.
Next up on the book shelf: Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark
