    I always say that he preaches to his readers and in this book he does that a lot. Every action of the characters had to be psychoanalized to the nth degree. They couldn't pour a cup of coffee without him explaining the reason behind the action....past history, thoughts on the mores of society and so on. A writer does not need to do this if he has good character development. The reader can figure this stuff out on his own. The book should have been titled "Stock characters gone wild".
    If he didn't psychoanalyze his characters this book would've been around 50 pages.

    I won't say Koontz is like SK but he does spin a good yarn. Just checked out Hideaway and having read the first 100 pages is awesome. My first Dean Koontz book was Demon Seed and even though both versions of the book were different, I have to admit they were pretty interesting. So he isn't bad, it's j7ust that he's different.

    I am very proud of my Dean Koontz collection. I don't look for EVERY single one of his books like I do with King, and I'm not a member of his message board. But I still enjoy reading his works.

    Nah, no Koontz fer me, thanx. I've read a couple of his novels, didn't care fer em. Nothng like the King. It's senseless to even compare the two.

    When I need a good horror fix (and there's no Uncle Stevie on hand) I read cats like Jack Ketchum, Edward Lee, Ramsey Campbell, some old Skipp and Spector--guys like that. Koontz? Bah.

    The only one I really liked was "Twilight Eyes" I did. I did.



    I don't think it had a Golden Retriever in it.

    Watchers was good, but I was young when I read both of them.
