Innocence By: Dean Koontz
Dean Koontz is one of those authors that I have avoided for a long time. It seemed like he produced a lot of books way to fast and it made me wonder how good the books really were. This book was this months book for a book club that I am in. The book intrigued me when I started it but about half way through I started having a hard time with the language, one of the characters and the disturbing images that this book brought with it. If it wasn't for a few of the lose ends that needed to be tied up I might have either stopped reading or at least put the book down for awhile. But at the end it was all tied in very nicely and I understood more about the nature of those things that disturbed me. So in the end the book was ok. Would I read it again? No. Will I read another Dean Koontz? Possibly.
Here's the description by Amazon.com:
He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen.
She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found.
But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance—and nothing less than destiny—has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.
