The first half of Koon...
The first half of Koontz's "Mr. Murder" is like a lame, and yet somehow even more unbelievable, version of King's "Dark Half". The second half continues in this vein, but adds in elements of poor sci-fi and a deep, dark, secret conspiracy that seems tacked on as an afterthought. I found this book even a little too insipid for light-reading fare.

This is one of the bes...

This is one of the best and scariest books by Koontz that I've read. I had a constant feeling of dread and anxiety while I was reading it. The main reason for this is that although the story poses some sci-fi elements, it's the general evil, the evil and circumstances that could happen to the reader personally, that bring the book to life. Koontz also does a good job developing the characters. The reader becomes attached tot and cares about them. He even elicits compassion for the villain. For the majority of this novel, the sci-fi elements also have a Crichton-realism-type feel. They bring up controversial topics. The end of the novel strays some from this "real" feel; however, not really to the detriment of the story as the focus of the story shifts from "The Other" to The Network.SPOILER: For me, a hot-topic of discussion from this is whether or not clones have souls. Also, does scientifically maturing a human mature all aspects or is some experience necessary? One of the lingering horrors for me is that Marty's parents died thinking their own son killed them.

This quickly became on...

This quickly became one of my favorite Koontz books. While the story line could be interpreted as a little close to Kings "Dark Half"- it quickly evolved into its own web. I especially loved how the ending- while not completely realistic didn't leave with everything intact- there was some sacrifice that was made by the main character.

Another wonderful Koon...

Another wonderful Koontz book. This one takes you into an entire family, which is probably one of my all time favorate families in a book, i feel in love with them early on and they kept me hooked until the end. The concept of this book is identity as the bad guy is a clone of our protagisnist and believes that he stole his life, thus beginning our story. A very underrated Koontz book that everybody should give a chance and read.
