BreathlessBreathless by Dean Koontz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love the way Dean Koontz develops characters. There are the ones he gives endearing and quirky characteristics that you can love and identify with. And there are the creepy ones that make you afraid to check under the bed. He throws in a dog to make you feel safe and sure that nothing really bad is going to happen to the good people. And there are the questionable characters. You don't know if they are a threat or if they will come to the rescue.

Breathless has all those elements. It's the characters that kept me reading. But in the end, I'm saying, "What was that all about?"

There are some authors that can weave a story that keeps you turning pages, so that in the end you say, "Oh that's what that was about." And you start processing the clues that you missed, and that story stays with you for a long time...the puzzle coming into place.

Not so with Breathless. I give it 3 stars for keeping me engaged.
