Mehr über den Autor

Dean Koontz glaubte an sich, auch als er noch kein erfolgreicher Schriftsteller war. Aber nicht nur er, auch seine Frau Gerda war von seinem Können überzeugt. Daher bot sie ihm an, für fünf Jahre allein den Unterhalt zu verdienen. Binnen dieser Zeit sollte er mit dem Schreiben ausreichende Einnahmen erzielen können - oder aber seinen Kindheitstraum an den Nagel hängen, so die Vereinbarung. Koontz musste diese Frist aber gar nicht ausschöpfen, der Erfolg kam schneller, und bis heute hat er insgesamt sagenhafte 400 Millionen Exemplare seiner Romane verkauft. Geboren wurde Koontz 1945 in Pennsylvania. Er arbeitete zunächst als Englischlehrer und schrieb nur am Wochenende und in den Abendstunden - bis das Angebot seiner Frau kam. Heute leben die beiden in Kalifornien.

Crispin is a boy, twelve years old. He lives wild in the city and he is on the run. His only friend is the dog Harley. (And what a surprise - better no surprise - Harley is half a Golden Retriever, as so often, nearly always in Koontz novels...)

Crispin is hunted. From People. Once he lived in a great house with his sister and brother, his mom and his stepfather and a great household staff. But Crispin encounters that something strange is going on. Then his sister disappears, a few weeks later his younger brother...

THE MOONLIT MIND is a shorter novel by Dean Koontz. The idea itself (the model of the house, the strange cult, disappearing people, cats and avatars, living in the streets, haunted by the own past, and so on...) is good but not brand new or extraordinary. Only the drawing up of the theme could be better with a bit more action, more suspense, less predictable.

In the end nice to read but nothing special.

A wild boy on the run in a city of mean streets 28. November 2011
Von Rett01 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Three short, simply worded sentences in I found myself thinking, I can deal with murder, mayhem, and treachery but please don't kill off the dog. Whether or not Harley would make it to the end was enough suspense to keep me turning the pages. And this isn't a story about the dog.

The real suspense involves a "feral" boy of 12, Crispin, who lives in the wilds of a large city and guided by the dog is attempting to outrun his mother and stepfather and the memories that make the deviltry in "Rosemary's Baby," seem almost benign.

No kid should be exposed to what Crispin witnessed three years earlier involving his younger sister Mirabell and brother (also named) Harley. Now he's running for his life, in flight from the supernatural and living by his wits and daring.

This is the first I've read from Koontz in several years and I remember now how he manages tells a story simply and builds suspense incrementally slipping easily into a world at once as ghostly as it is real. At times you feel as if you're reading a fairy tale. "Yet life is good. Oh, it is grand. The children eat only what they like. They go to bed only when they wish. Each rises to his or her own clock."

The story accelerates as the suspense builds and Koontz delivers, as usual, an ending that is powerful, cathartic and noisy. Crispin is living in a world out of harmony with itself and his determination to uncover the nature of truth and reality is as strong as his will to survive. As for the fate of the dog? You'll need to find that out on your own.

I need more of this! Please bring Crispin back, Dean! 7. Dezember 2011
Von Ms. Deb 1107 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I literally could not put this juicy little story down. Like many other fans, I have been a Dean Koontz reader since way back in the day. He's evolved considerably, and I even went through a period where I couldn't finish his books because of the endless details that went nowhere, but this is such an enchanting blend of the best of his styles. He's got engaging main characters, spooky evil parent figures, nice supernatural touches, and (of course) an awesome dog. DEAN: If you are reading this, PLEASE continue this story! I read the preview for the new novel and it doesn't seem like it has anything to do with Crispin. I love this character. Can't wait to read more. BRING IT ON!

Wow. What happend? 30. November 2011
Von Wild One - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
First let me start by saying I have been a Dean Koontz fan for 25 years. I was a Dean Koontz fan before he made the best seller lists and had millions of fans. I've read every book the man has ever written as well as his biographies. Stalker? No- I don't know his address- but I am and will always be a die-hard Dean Koontz fan. THAT being said, this was the first and only thing I have ever read from Koontz - to include all interviews and dialogues recorded anywhere- that was actually disappointing and not funny. Koontz, the master of suspense, horror and comedy all rolled into one- what happened????
Seriously, the book was so bad I wondered if Koontz really wrote it at all or did he just allow someone to do short story for him and he pinned his name to it? The book just doesn't make sense. Phantom avatars you put in your pocket? Really? The protagonist walking out of a burning building with the sprinklers going full blast and the he doesn't get wet- even though the other people do- AND THERE'S NO EXPLAINATION AS TO WHY? (You'll get it when you read it why this is so annoying). Koontz is always so methodical about explaining the unexplainable, about weaving a tale so wonderfully complex and amazing, and no matter how utterly insane the plot gets IT MAKES SENSE in the end. There's no "he found the keys, but he doesn't know when he learned of them (the keys) or if he ever did". THE KEYS being the ones that allow the protagonist to enter the room in an attempt to save his brother's life- yet when it was his little sister being murdered all he could do was pound on the door.

Was Koontz on medications when he wrote this? Perhaps someone kidnapped him and wrote under his name. I can only hope. Regardless of this disappointment, I am still a die-hard Dean Koontz fan. Everyone has their off days. This is the first one he's ever had as far as I'm concerned. Even though his style has changed dramatically from his Phantom and Intensity days (Intensity being my all-time favorite book- I even have a black Doberman named Chyna for those of you who've read the book), I still loved- love- every single one of Dean Koontz books except this one. Ech. I don't think I'll ever read it again. :(

However, I cannot diss on my favorite-author-of-all-time without cringing (I'm so sorry Koontz. Seriously, did you really write this book?). However the books before this one "Frankenstien" and "What the Night Knows" were freaking awesome. I think I'll go back for a re-read on those. While I may still by the hard copy of this book - if it becomes available- it will be the only Dean Koontz book that will not be re-read by me ever again (Okay, well I am going to read it again one more time just to make sure it was as horrible as I thought the first time I read it. If I change my mind I'll update my review.)

A Return to Form 29. November 2011
Von Keith Latch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Not the Koontz, I grew up with, certainly, but a mighty leap from lackluster tales like From the Corner of His Eye, False Memory and One Door Away from Heaven (all worthy novels, just not Koontz level in my mind). While it is just a short precursor, it goes a long way to getting me help me make the determination to pick up this new novel as soon as it's released.

Creepy and atmospheric, this tale is wonderful reading from a chilly winter's night. A novella truly deserving of the Koontz name.

What was the rush? 16. Dezember 2011
Von Jane Phillips - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
To begin with, let me say I love Dean's work. I always have.

This book was a disappointment however. I had settled in for a nice long read with a well crafted storyline about Crispin and his dog Harley venturing alone in the city under the most unusual of circumtances.

Told partly in present tense and partly in flashback, this story addressed some aspects of the background but not others. In fact, some things were left largely to the imagination of the reader and only implied. I was sure it was building to a great climax where all of my questions would be answered. Abruptly, it was over!

The ending seemed very rushed, more like homework thrown together at the last minute before it was due to be handed in. I found myself wondering what the rush was? This is not Dean's usual standard.

This story could have been developed into so much more and it's disappointing that time and effort wasn't taken to do so. Why Dean has chosen to build to a potentially great climax and then walk away from it is beyond speculation.

While the storyline was a great read, the ending left me dissatisfied and unhappy. I was glad I hadn't spent regular retail price for this in hard copy and while I will continue to buy his books, I am definitely hoping for a better result with the next book.
