    I usually like to wait a bit before posting a review However, I just want to be done with this terrible book I cannot with how slow and boring it was and how there was no development to any character we meet At one point I was having a flashback to another Koontz book where there is a super dog, a man and woman, and an other thing that wanted to kill the dog No I don t care what book I am thinking of, I am just writing that to prove the point that Koontz repeats himself In addition this who I usually like to wait a bit before posting a review However, I just want to be done with this terrible book I cannot with how slow and boring it was and how there was no development to any character we meet At one point I was having a flashback to another Koontz book where there is a super dog, a man and woman, and an other thing that wanted to kill the dog No I don t care what book I am thinking of, I am just writing that to prove the point that Koontz repeats himself In addition this whole book is like a prelude to the Odd Thomas series Christopher Snow acts like Odd Thomas s long lost brother in so many ways I kept getting confused The ending was a joke I know there is a second book in this series, well too bad, I have no intention of reading it Fear Nothing had an interesting premise A young man who has a rare genetic disorder cannot be out in the sunlight He has lived his life at night and under the moon He somehow has a super hot girlfriend who is a deejay, and also knows her way around guns like most female characters in Koontz s books He has a cool dog named Orson and apparently parents who loved him He also has a best friend who is a surfer that talks like he s in his 50s though he is the same age as Christopher late 20s Koontz pitches you into something dark and nasty right away when we find out that Christopher s father is dying and he goes to the hospital to be there when he passes away Apparently his father dying was the last thing keeping things in the community of Moonlight Bay together After Christopher witnesses people stealing his father s body, he is on the run for his life and hiding from long time friends he has known since he was a boy There are also monkeys Sigh Christopher is Odd Thomas and Odd Thomas is Christopher Not quite a Gary Sue here, but pretty freaking close He talks in metaphors and similes and made me wish for his character s death He also is Too Stupid to Live TSTL as shown by him running from place to place and not telling anyone what is going on when he does talk to his girlfriend, Sasha, he doesn t tell her what s going on for plot reasons He does have a break and go to his best friend s house where surfer talk reigns and where I once again hoped for the death of both of these characters.The secondary characters are merely there to prop up Christopher or throw some random saying at him.Christopher s girlfriend is just there She has no personality at all besides she s a deejay and she loves Christopher and calls him Snowman The dog hadof a personality than she did.Christopher s best friend Bobby is kind of a jerk He doesn t like to listen to unpleasant things and just tells Christopher to forget about things And then randomly throws out how his estranged girlfriend thinks she s the reincarnation of an Hawaiian goddess And maybe he is a god I don t know My brain shut off at that point and watched a British baking show which I am now obsessed with There are multiple bad guys and evil animals and it was just not very well done We had one character talk about raping his granddaughter and my bile rose up This didn t make it horror, just something unpleasant that was trying too hard The why behind all of this is beyond stupid I could not with the reveal The writing is late in his career Koontz There just seems to be pointless dialogue between characters and them people running There is a gunfight in the end and I maybe laughed cause the whole thing was peak absurd.The flow was awful This was a struggle to keep reading and to stay on top of while I was reading too The setting of Moonlight Bay must have only 20 people that live there since that is all who seemed to make up this book The ending was a hot mess Not really an ending and I am guessing using to set up book 2 which is Seize the Night

    This is the one and only Dean Koontz novel I ve ever read, since it managed to put me right off DK forever It wasn t awful, but wow, it was just so, so so, so, so many extra and unneeded words IIRC, it took the main character something like seven full pages just to make his way up a flight of stairs at one point, and it wasn t because the steps were just that exciting I can t believe I actually finished this I guess some writers are just not for me.

    Too weird No good story underneath Events not supported Lots of threats Things not explained.Most of the story takes place during two nights Chris visits several people There are long, vague, incomplete conversations with each person There is a conspiracy mystery and Chris is trying to figure out what is going on Most people tell him things like stop investigating If you know too much you will regret it The end of the world as we know it has begun A couple of people are angry and ac Too weird No good story underneath Events not supported Lots of threats Things not explained.Most of the story takes place during two nights Chris visits several people There are long, vague, incomplete conversations with each person There is a conspiracy mystery and Chris is trying to figure out what is going on Most people tell him things like stop investigating If you know too much you will regret it The end of the world as we know it has begun A couple of people are angry and accusing toward Chris saying You are responsible for this Most people know things, but they won t tell Chris Instead they say you shouldn t know all of it, just enough to forget what you saw There is a tell all at the end where Chris finds answers in a letter I did not enjoy it I felt like I was watching the author s dreams.Here s an example of Chris visiting Roosevelt, a friend Roosevelt knows what is going on but he won t tell Chris Instead it s a long scene with Roosevelt talking to Chris dog Orson and talking about other pets and animals Finally at the end of the scene, Roosevelt tells Chris that he must not ask anyquestions or they will kill Chris friends, but they are not interested in killing Chris He won t give anydetails.Too many things are not explained, for example Why some revered Chris and were in awe of him and wouldn t kill him Why wouldn t people tell Chris the whole story What happened and why with the hitchhiker The title of the book didn t make sense Those were the dad s last words to Chris I wanteddetails about why and what happened to the dad Why Chris friendship with Manuel is now over Why did Orson hate Chris temporarily three years ago What was the cause and motive for Chris mother s death What are the motives for why some monkeys are killing humans What s the deal with dolls that looked like Chris I wanted to knowabout the leader of the monkeys How did that work How did that start What I liked Chris had a genetic disorder He will develop skin cancer and eye cancer from light bulbs and the sun It s almost a miracle that he s lived to age 28 He knows he doesn t have a long life ahead I liked his attitude about living After a major crisis that almost killed Chris and his friends, a friend asked what do we do now Chris said get a beer She said after that Chris said Can t drink beer forever Catch a wave Although he s carrying a gun for the first time in his life he s not worrying about things It s calming to see his attitude.The narrator Keith Szarabajka was excellent I d be interested in another book just for his narration At times his voice is gravelly and low I really liked listening to him.DATA Narrative mode 1st person Chris Unabridged audiobook reading time 12 hrs and 37 mins Swearing language strong including religious swear words, but not often Sexual language none Number of sex scenes one referred to, no details Setting around 1998 Moonlight Bay, California Book copyright 1998 Genre mystery suspense Ending good for now.OTHER BOOKS For a list of my reviews of other Dean Koontz books, see my 5 star review of Lightninghttp www.goodreads.com review show

    This is a Dean Koontz novel You know what you re going to get.Some wonky science gone horribly wrong Conspiracies Government involvement A smart dog A preachy protagonist The Koontzian equivalent of a manic pixie girl who is, of course, deeply and madly in love with the protagonist Yeah, Fear Nothing is one of those quintessential Koontz books pretty by the numbers stuff, but still fun.Something I appreciated is the reference to Watchers the goings on in Moonlight Bay are explained as This is a Dean Koontz novel You know what you re going to get.Some wonky science gone horribly wrong Conspiracies Government involvement A smart dog A preachy protagonist The Koontzian equivalent of a manic pixie girl who is, of course, deeply and madly in love with the protagonist Yeah, Fear Nothing is one of those quintessential Koontz books pretty by the numbers stuff, but still fun.Something I appreciated is the reference to Watchers the goings on in Moonlight Bay are explained as an improvement upon the scientific discoveries from Koontz s most famous work This author does not typically reference himself, but in this case it worked It made the book feel not quite so derivative Fear Nothing is just plain fun I couldn t stop reading I had to figure out the mysteries Cheesy surfer lingo aside in fact, most of the dialogue in this book is painfully cheesy and overwritten , this is a relatively solid adventure Recommended for established Koontz fans, or anyone looking for a breezy summer read

    Never leave a friend behind Friends are all we have to get us through this life and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in the next I love this book I really do I m not certain why, really Dean Koontz is a schmaltzy writer He overuses analogies and some of them are rather bizarre Many of his books have similar details bad ass chicks, unlikely heroes, a golden retriever or two They start to blur together after a while But when I was in middle school and Never leave a friend behind Friends are all we have to get us through this life and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in the next I love this book I really do I m not certain why, really Dean Koontz is a schmaltzy writer He overuses analogies and some of them are rather bizarre Many of his books have similar details bad ass chicks, unlikely heroes, a golden retriever or two They start to blur together after a while But when I was in middle school and high school, I read every single thing Koontz had published This book and its sequel, Seize the Night always seemed to stand out I reread it every few years, and I ve also listened to the audiobook a few times This time was the audiobook, mostly at the gym It s just a good, solid story with a very likable lead and a black lab.Fear Nothing is about a 28 year old man named Chris Snow I am now 28 I think I read this book for the first time when I was 12 I feel old Chris suffers from a condition called xeroderma pigmentosum XP that prevents his cells from being able to repair themselves after exposure to light As a result, he has lived his life in a dimly lit house during the day At night, he explores the small town of Midnight Bay, where he lives.This novel begins in the evening, as Chris gets a phone call that his father has passed away from cancer A fluke event at the hospital leads Chris to see someone do something strange with his father s remains He investigates, and stumbles upon a mystery that affects his whole town I don t want to spoil anything, but I ll say one thing genetically modified monkeys Yeah, that s right.The events of the novel take place primarily over a 24 hour period, as Chris explores his town and visits friends and enemies, trying to find the truth about his father s death I think one of the things I loved so much about this novel was the romantic idea of having a whole town to yourself in the dark just you, your dog and your bicycle.Fear Nothing ends abruptly, with few questions answered Koontz published a sequel, Seize the Night, the following year Supposedly he s working on a third 13 year old me can t wait

    Christopher Snow lives in the sleepy little town of Moonlight Bay He has a rare disease called XP which prevents him from getting any sunlight or being in bright light at all His body doesn t repair ultra violet damage the way most bodies do Therefore Christopher is resigned to live his life by the night and he knows just about every inch of Moonlight Bay.His girlfriend Sasha and his boyhood friend Bobby are his closest companions and they both love him dearly and would do anything for him.He Christopher Snow lives in the sleepy little town of Moonlight Bay He has a rare disease called XP which prevents him from getting any sunlight or being in bright light at all His body doesn t repair ultra violet damage the way most bodies do Therefore Christopher is resigned to live his life by the night and he knows just about every inch of Moonlight Bay.His girlfriend Sasha and his boyhood friend Bobby are his closest companions and they both love him dearly and would do anything for him.He lives with his dog, Orson, who almost seems to be able to understand what you re saying and respond.On this night, Christopher Snow s father, who is afflicted with cancer, dies Chris makes a rare venture out into the world of light to go to the hospital to see his father one last time before he dies After he s gone and the body is taken to be cremated, Chris remembers his father wants to be cremated with a picture of Chris s mother who died two years ago in a car accident He rushes down to the basement to catch up with the men who took the body, but instead he finds an odd scene A man in a van brought another body of a dead hitchhiker to be swapped out with Chris s dad Apparently someone wants to dotests on Chris s father.This is the beginning of a strange night full of events for Chris Snow which leads him to discover a frightening military experiment has been going on in Moonlight Bay for years It s the end of the world as we know it and it s too late to stop what s already happened.What s worse, Chris s mother was involved in the whole thing and as it turns out, she may have been murdered or killed herself.Chris tries to find the truth in amid all the lies and secrets He risks his life and his friends lives in this pursuit.The frightening experiment involves gene splicing which will allow superior intelligence It has been tested on a variety of animals and in the first batch, although they exhibited superior intelligence, they also exhibited massive violence and hatred.This book reminded me too much of Watchers and it even refers to The Francis Project that was behind all the happenings in Watchers The difference is that this book didn t have any of the heart that Watchers had It was well written and suspenseful, but in the end, I didn t really care about any of the characters Orson didn t win me over as much as Einstein And the violent creatures resulting in the experiment didn t have the heart that The Outsider was known to have.Overall, this was a big let down There s another book with the same characters, but they didn t win me over enough to want to readabout them
