    [EPUB] The Taking This is easily one of Koontz's scariest novels in that it is packed full of dark suspense In that regard it is along the lines of Winter Moon and Phantoms two of my other Koontz favorites The action in the book picks up very early which is unlike many of his novels and continues to the very end Overall I thought it was a very enjoyable read and I would highly recommend it as it is one of my favorite books of his that I h

Of the traditional Christian Tagebuch rapture with some humans going to Hell others to Heaven and still othersemain on Earth to live out their lives in the new world Of course we are expected to take the protagonist s conclusions as gospel no matter how far fetched they might be given the known facts presented thus far in the book this is another very common aspect of Koontz s writing that annoys me There is also a fairly confusing side story egarding the primary protagonist s evil father that seemed to add nothing to the plot of the novel but did serve to flesh out the primary protagonist S Character So That She Seemed Real And We Could character so that she seemed eal and we could with her Plus Koontz just can t esist including a psycho killer in his novels This eview is dedicated to my goodreads friend Becky who inspired me to write this eview and perhaps others in the future This was a bubbling cesspool meandering mess The apocalypse has hit the world Unexplained phenomena crop up everywhere Coyotes that weren t uite coyotes people coming back to the dead and a sudden invasion of creatures that were altogether unsettling Molly and her husband feel a pull to the city and set off to save their town or die tryingEnter the blandest main character I have met in a long long while Molly Sloan I disliked her from start to finish I can t eally pinpoint why I hated her with such a passion It didn t help that her voice in the audiobook was sing songy and nasally And she was a bit annoying and woe is me in the book I ll put it down to her Mary Sue nessThe apocalypse aspects were pretty good creepy talking dolls the invading creatures but the characters kept uining things for "ME THE STORY HAD A UICK "The story had a uick but there s a difference between fast paced and just throwing inexplicable events at you The book either dragged or zipped by never a healthy balance No in betweenThe heavy handed eligious twist deeply unsettled me It felt like a perversion on Hoffnung Mensch religious themes for shock value and changed this book from 25 stars to barely a 1 in my eyesI adored Odd Thomas but now Iealize that a series like that may be a once in an author s lifetime sort of thingAudiobook CommentsI honestly can t distinguish whether I hated Molly or her voiceYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading Possibly the worst Koontz book I have ever ead Poor character development meandering plot line and an utterly nonsensical eligious subtext completely demolish any sense of creepy atmosphere that the author manages to successfully employ That s it My last Dean Koontz Koontz like Stephen King wrote some truly good books Scary thrilling page turners that had great plots and likeable believeable and horrible characters Many of Dean Koontz s books had noble themes and endings that gave one a sense of justice and purpose after the chaos of the story Stephen King has written undisputable horror classics Then both Stephen and Dean began to write hundreds of books Hundreds Cha ching And did it affect the uality Yes it did I just must be a slow learner because until today I just kept buying them Some people may not agree with me but then some people can ead one Harleuin Romance after another for years and never get bored with them Like a drug you just want to elive the experience of eading that first wonderful book again I ll never forget those first characters I couldn t get enough of and how I fell in love with the noble intelligent dogs as in Watchers But book after book will never match the thrill of the first one In the 80 s every great movie had at least one crappy seuel Today we seem to be doing the same thing with books Well I for one am going to swear off seuels from now on I forgot to take a book on vacation and ended up having to walk down to a garage sale and take what they had I ve enjoyed some of Koonz s books so I picked this one The first couple chapters showed a lot of promise a lot After that every move made by the characters euired excrutiating explanation and superhuman leaps of logic By the middle of the book I was bored but stayed until the end because I wanted to see how they supposedly solved the issue It eally wasn t worth the effort.
