Review : Hideaway by Dean Koontz

Title : Hideaway
Dean Koontz
Rating: 3.95 out of 5 stars

About the book:

He was clinically dead after the accident—but was miraculously revived. Now Hatch Harrison and his wife, Lindsey, approach each day with a new appreciation of life...shadowed by his glimpse of death.
Something has come back from the other side. A terrible presence that links Hatch's mind to a dangerous psychotic. A dark force of murderous rage that hides within us all...

My Review:

The back of the book says enough.So, I don't think I need to describe and elaborate a little more about the summary as I fear I will straight away lead to spoilers.

Ok.This is the first ever book that I have read of Dean Koontz.Actually, the reason I purchased this one was that all my guy friends love this author. So, I thought I would gift  it to my papa.And, yes, he loved this book too !
I definitely liked Hideaway a lot..! Had to keep my patience for the initial pages to get used to the writing style as well as to know whats happening. After that, the book turned out to be a page turner ! The entire book till the last few pages is damn good ! I liked the plot, but I really got disappointed with the ending..It was childish..seriously !!

The scenes described in the book are very disturbing.The plot is definitely very strong and I found this one as very creepy and scary !

Recommened to the readers who love reading thrillers/creepy/haunting/suspense adult books !

I haven't read anything by this author either. Will have to check him out! I did read somewhere that in most of his books he tries to incorporate a dog into the story...apparently he's a big dog lover or something.

I haven't read Koontz in years. If you want to read more of him my favorites are Strangers, Phantoms, The Watchers, and Lightning.

@Ryan : Thanks Ryan.I'll remember these ones so that I can give them to my Papa.He will love them :)
