On the heels of his critically acclaimedNew York TimesbestsellersFear NothingandSeize the Night, "America's most popular suspense novelist"* will stun readers with a deeply sinister and endlessly surprising tale of a rare and terrifying phobia: autophobia - fear of oneself. Martie Rhodes is a young wife (happily married to Dustin for three years), a video game designer, and a compassionate woman who takes her agoraphobic friend Carol to therapy sessions. Carol is so afraid of leaving her apartment that the trips are grim ordeals for both women - but bonding experiences as well. Then one morning Martie experiences a sudden fear of her own, a brief but disquieting terror of...her shadow. The episode it over quickly. It leaves her shaken but amused. Then, as she is about to check her makeup, she realizes she is terrified to look in the mirror and confront her own face. As the episodes of this traumatic condition - autophobia - build, the lives of Martie and her husband change drastically. Frantic to discover the trigger for her descent into hell, Dustin begins to look into the background of a respected therapist. As he comes closer to the truth about this strange and troubled "healer," Dustin finds himself afflicted with a condition even more bizarre and terrifying than Martie's. No fan of psychological suspense will want to miss this extraordinary novel of the human mind's capacity to torment - and destroy. Dean Koontz once more reveals why he has, asPeopleput it, the "power to scare the daylights out of us."… (més)

I wish I could give this book 3.5 stars because it is worthy of more than 3 stars but not quite worthy of 4 stars. The book has a very interesting plot but it goes off on rants in numerous places. Mr. Koontz could have cut this book down by about 300 pages and it would have been a much better book. Mr. Koontz delves into the lives of the main characters in a way that makes you root for them. But the story seems to go off into areas that seemed the only purpose was to add more pages. Really trying to understand what was the purpose of travelling to New Mexico since there was absolutely nothing discovered or resolved by going there. Also the way in which the bad guy perishes leaves a lot to be desired, it was a very anti-climatic moment. I have difficulty recommending this book but I think there will be some that really like it.

This 21+ hour book just did not grab me. I listened for two hours and couldn't put the story together as it moved very slowly. Not interesting in the least. I've better way to spend my reading hours, then listening to Charlie Brown's teacher. Did not finish. ( )

Go see your Dr. then read this book. Leave me a message if you don't wind up in the nut house. Kind of hard to review without spoiling things. Koontz at his best. Koontz loves to put you in a place where you automatically have to assume that someone is out to get you and that someone is just decieving and evil enough to make your life a living hell. A predictable element of Koontz is that he is going to let you go back to your life at the end of the fray, but he clearly wants you to remember that no matter what.....you should never get over confident about your place in the cosmos. If you do, then he will snatch you right back to his own little patch of shadow and slap you around. You will be ok in the end. Just pray that he has not been hanging out with Clive Barker. ( )

I couldn't turn the pages fast enough!

This book is a suspenseful thriller in which the characters start to notice lapses in their memory. I’m glad it's fiction because it’s kind of freaky. ( )

AUTOPHOBIA is a real personality disorder. The term is used to describe three different conditions: (1) fear of being alone; (2) fear of being egotistical; (3) fear of oneself. The third is the rarest of these conditions.
This phantasm
of falling petals vanishes into
moon and flowers . . .

nothing is quite

Life is an unrelenting comedy.
Therein lies the tragedy of it.

On that Tuesday in January, when her life changed forever, Martine Rhodes woke with a headache, developed a sour stomach after washing down two aspirin with grapefruit juice, guaranteed herself an epic bad-hair day by mistakenly using Dustin's shampoo instead of her own, broke a fingernail, burnt her toast, discovered ants swarming through the cabinet under the kitchen sink, eradicated the pests by firing a spray can of insecticide as ferociously as Sigourney Weaver wielded a flamethrower in one of those old extraterrestrial-bug movies, cleaned up the resultant carnage with paper towels, hummed Bach's Requiem as she solemnly consigned the tiny bodies to the trash can, and took a telephone call from her mother, Sabrina, who still prayed for the collapse of Martie's marriage three years after the wedding.
