read: Ashley Bell (4 stars)

Ashley BellAshley Bell by Dean Koontz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If the purpose of a book like this is to be unsettling, then Ashley Bell is a big success. I had to set it aside for a time. The descriptions of someone facing brain cancer hit too close to home for me.

When I picked it back up, so did the story, careening forward with a well-told and bizarre tale that seemed to be happening in two completely different worlds. Actually, three worlds, because key portions of the story are told in flashback. The author made it easy to keep track of the timeline, all the various characters and made it all interesting with a deepening mystery for the main character to solve.

This was my first Koontz. It won't be my last.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review.
