    Sit back and relax We re going to be here for a while First and foremost, I must appreciate how fantastic my paperback of this book smells These old Berkley Koontz books have a distinctly woody aroma Less of a vanilla smell and of a damp pine scent Like walking through a Christmas tree farm in the rain I ve picked up Zebra novels from this era and Tor paperback originals, even a few King Pocketbook editions, and none of them smell like these old Black Neon paperbacks If you re not familiar with my use of Black Neon, the explanation is simple enough I m talking about any of the Dean Koontz novels published by Berkley that had a black cover with simple artwork and colorful sometimes neon titles and bylines They are, in my opinion, the best of the best when it comes to Koontz His heyday, if you will And they smell fucking amazing.Now for the contents of this well perfumed paperback Night Chills is nowhere near as good as I remember In fact, I made a progress update that read And we re off This book takes a while to kick in, but once it does, it s relentless.Hot damn, I miss the Koontz of yesteryear His risk taking always impressed me I lied my flabby ass off While the ending was okay, it s not what I remembered No worries, I will not spoil the ending for you Suffice it to say, it does not ramp up and get crazy action y like I thought it did I honestly feel as if someone changed the book on me I felt like Obi Wan had waved a hand in front of ...

    Most Dean Koontz novels are a source of brain candy for methink the gooey, dripping kind that parents never want their kids to have because they know they ll be the ones scrubbing it off the couch or inside of the car After I read them I usually forget about them in a month or so I might keep one or two details that make me smirk whenever I see the cover of that book.NIGHT CHILLS was a bit different This book disturbed me I have no problem with violence within the confines of a horror novel I mean that is one of the central themes in these types of books, right But what I do have a problem with is violence as a form of masturbation Let me elucidate Let s say there is a killer that has been overcome with some sort of demonic possession and he then goes on a killing rampage Okay, the author has dutifully illustrated the nefarious nature of this demon and also shown the spiritual mental psychological weakness of said character I get it, no problem But what if you have a character that figures out a way to subliminally control people for his own means Okay, I can see where the person now in power wants to show his abilities of playing god, small g But what if this goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on you get the picture , without a real juicy story to back it up Well, that s exactly what happ...

    An entertaining page turner with some creepy science There s also some philosophizing about how humanity s morality is effected by advanced technology It was a fun read.

    2.5 StarsNow and again I read a Dean Koontz novel They re good for that five or ten minute read before turning out the light at night or while killing time waiting Not heavy reading and Koontz basically writes from a template making a change here or there.I find that I can skim through sections that are not catching my interest and not miss out on anything I speculate that he might have a ghost writer now, but who knows Maybe he s just a spectacular workaholic Anyway Night Chills is one of his earlier works from the mid seventies Though he had at least a couple dozen books under his belt by the time this one was published Compared to the current works by Koontz Night Chills has a of an edge to it There are a couple rape sequences that are very uncomfortable to read and the two main protagonists have an active sex life that Koontz describes in detail However it was the seventies and many authors were doing the same thing Basically soft porn, but porn was sort of mainstream at the time and nobody can accuse Koontz of not being mainstream view spoiler So the novel concerns mind control and a small isolated town set in Northern Maine ...

    I wasn t supposed to read Night Chills since I already have a lot of other books planned to read , but my eyes found it in a pile of books at home and I just felt the need for a Koontz and I m happy I followed my instinct since it was a really good novel.Black River is a sleepy little town in Maine Stephen King vibes where the population starts getting night chills and suddenly all hell breaks loose In the middle of the chaos stands a family that doesn t get the night chills and they now have to fight for their lives.I found that the worst thing with this book is that the night chills isn t something spooky going on, something paranormal, instead, it s an experiment conducted by three men and I have always found that the horror of the things humans do to each ...

    I was very disappointed by this book because I usually really like Dean Koontz Night Chills started out okay in the first couple of chapters, but after that it went downhill To begin with, the second half of the blurb is bogus Except for in one instance, the people in Black River don t really do anything much at all And after those first few chapters, ...

    Just by the writing style of Night Chills, I could tell that this was an older book by Koontz Night Chills was probably so far, for me one of his darkest books, with a few disturbing rape scenes Aside from that, it was a good read, the mind manipulation plot was interesting, in a creepy kind of way, kind of reminded me of the Jedi Mind trick from Star Wars, HAHA The first few chapters were slow, with a few lengthy flashbacks, but once I got past that and...

    Night Chills was one of the most disturbing Dean Koontz novels I ve ever read, really shocking and creepy.

    This book is old school Dean Koontz, meaning it s at least competent, and perhaps charming in a cheesy, dated sort of way Night Chills features a plot Koontz has rewritten ad nauseum small town under siege by conspiracy Include some dated technology and crass rape references and, yeah, ya got yo self a typical 1970s Koontzy thriller Which isn t to say this book is bad I gave it three stars, after all This book is moody, and it was written before Koontz allowed himself to wallow in cheese and sentiment The characters, while mostly forgettable, aren t offensively bad That s a plus, given that Koontz is prone to writing some pretty wonky leads Where this novel fails most is, weirdly enough, the pacing There s just too build up and too little payoff I wanted to see of the town the story focuses enti...

    It s been a while since I read this I m pretty sure I was still in high school , but I do recall, even then, that it was crap Granted, it was highly readable and entertaining crap, but crap nonetheless I remember thinking, as I read it Koontz is pretty much projecting every sick, sexually perverted male fantasy he s ever had into this story and passing it off as entertainment The story, I think, had something to do with some kind of government project that turns the inhabitants of a small town into submissive sex slaves T...
