Book Review: Intensity by Dean Koontz

Intensity by Dean Koontz

I read Dean Koontz's Phantoms and then came to this book. Perhaps, Phantoms set the bar too high or maybe I am more of a fan of horror/supernatural genre than of suspense genre. Either way, Intensity failed to hold my attention till the end.

Chyna Shephard is visiting the family of her friend, Laura Templeton. Chyna had endured a tough childhood, marked predominantly by a lack of parental care and is very happy when she is provided warmth and acceptance by her friend's family. Her joy is short-lived, when an intruder breaks into the house and quickly proceeds to kill her hosts.

Consumed with rage and grief, Chyna sets out to avenge and jumps aboard the killer's vehicle. Soon the killer is aware of her presence and takes her to his house. In addition to the killer, Chyna has to contend with a pack of trained vicious Dobermann pinschers.

The starting is good. The middle secton is OK. Then it kind of got repetitive. I just lost interest and skipped to the end of the book.

I would recommend Phantoms to any reader looking for their first Dean Koontz book to savor.
