For this month I have chosen a Halloween treat for everyone. I have chosen a relatively new trilogy for you by Dean Koontz. Dean Koontz wrote his own twist on the Frankenstein story. This is almost a retelling of this legendary story and he did a wonderful spooky story in 3 parts:
The great thing for you is if you enjoy these stories you can read all stories back to back. Even though the books have been re-published they originally came out close to 3 years ago. What this meant for me is quite simply I had to wait nearly a year between each book. Which in a word: Sucks!!! Especially when each book gives you no sense of closure and leave you looking over the edge of cliff…..aaarrggggghhhh. This is really the only negative thing I have to say about the books.
Dean Koontz set the story in the city of New Orleans, and moved the Frankenstein story into modern times, and yes the 2 original principal characters are still in play. Dean also adds in a detective, her son and partner into the mix and you are set in a wild ride. This is vintage Koontz, where he takes you down separate plot lines, chapter-to-chapter until the cross paths. This is the fun part of reading the book, as you get sucked into a plot line from one chapter, the very next takes you down another road. Sometimes I would skip a chapter to continue the chapter I was on.
These books tell a great story in an interesting and new way, and I think you would enjoy. If you have read the books, let me know and if you pick them up let me know what you think. Enjoy
