A re-read as part of a book clearance. When I started this, I couldn’t even recall reading it the first time around. The author rarely writes in first person, and perhaps this is why. The idea of someone with a second sight which allows them to see the ‘goblins’ among us starts off well, and overall is a decent book. Alas, it feels as though it goes on too long within a few pages, possibly to the sometimes enjoyable, sometimes eye-glazing descriptions. There are a lot of subtexts to this story of resistance to the evil among us, a perfect analogy of the evil in humans. Too much, perhaps, another of its faults. There’s meaning here that’s ultimately lost in what feels like an overly long book to get the point across. The book works as an allegory to human behaviour, particularly in how we treat each other, but doesn’t especially tell us anything new. The book suffers from excess. Well worth reading once, but not to revisit. ( )

This is my absolute favorite of all of Dean Koontz' books. I first read this about 20 years ago. The story was so intriguing to me. The hideous monsters that could appear in human form. The way the monsters fed on human misery. Great stuff. The story has stayed with me all this time. I have read this book a couple more times, and it always is great. ( )

One of the first horror genre books I ever read. I was probably 13... It scared the crap out of me and I loved it! ( )

I love this book~ It is fantastical, inventive, and exciting! Ever seen Frailty? Yeah, it is kinda like that. I would be cautious giving this book to someone who was mentally unstable, but in a way you can sort of see things from their perspective!! Great thriller! ( )

Well, it took me quite some time to read this one. Reasons were that it was a bed time book, very small print so lots of letters on lots of pages and that at times I lost my interest.
Too much information, even in repetition. About the history of the main characters, the weather, seemingly meaningless conversations, the best way to kill the creatures (that subsequently was not followed by the hunters).

Happy that it's over & done with. ( )

not made them well, for they imitated humanity so abominably

This book is dedicated to
Tim and Serena Powers
and
Jim and Viki Blaylock
because they are
fellow toilers
in the vineyards
and because
it seems fitting
that such a strange story
should be dedicated to
strange people.
