Something strange is happening in Moonlight Bay. Something unleashed by the now closed military base. Something that makes the animals not quite animals. Something that makes the human not quite human.

If you like Koontz, You'll probably like this book.

This is my all-time favorite book! Dean Koontz is a master storyteller. The only drawback was I missed the characters (especially Orson) at the end and it was hard to get over to find another book that could compare. If you like scary books, this is an excellent read-if you like a riveting story, this is an excellent read! If you are a dog-lover, you'll be especially pleased:)

Dean Koontz has interesting charachters, and like Odd Thomas, the protagonist Christopher Snow has an interesting voice and an even more interesting life. What starts off seeming to be a murder mystery quickly develops levels of revelations that are frightening and fantastical. I enjoyed this book as the reader is with Chris (and Orson his dog) without those glimpses into the mind/minds of those opposing him. This is a charachter I'd like to read about again, and I am betting you will too.

This is the first book about Christopher Snow. Then, you need to read Seize the Night. This was a great book!

The first book of the strange story of the boy who could not go out in sunlight. Great read, might want to get them both. The second book was Seize the Night.

In my opinion, the Christopher Snow books are the best work Dean Koontz has produced. Even if you don't like Koontz's usual thrillers, you might find you enjoy this book, and the sequel, "Seize The Night".

Overall, I enjoyed "Fear Nothing" more than the sequel, and much more than any other Koontz series.

I really enjoyed this book. It has been awhile since I read a Koontz novel and I forgot how delightful they can be. This book is well written and the main character is very likeable and has a wicked sense of humor. I found myself laughing out loud in certain parts. I would definitely recommend.

I've read the other reviews about this book, and it seems that everyone so far has enjoyed this book and its sequel. Unfortunately, I couldn't get into this book. It seemed to drag on. In one early chapter the main character was being chased (in a chapter that just wouldn't end soon enough for me), and it was very reminiscent of a similar scene in Koontz's Odd Thomas books (I read the first 2 so far and have enjoyed them). Having liked the Odd Thomas books, I couldn't get over a very similar voice between the main character of those books and the main character in this book. Perhaps I am the "odd one" here, but I just did not get into this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Dean Koontz has a way with words and his command of the English language is wonderful. I think it was better for me to listen to this book than to read it because listening really gets you into the story and I love all the descriptive words.

As usual, Dean Koontz has come up with unusual characters and placed them in unusual predicaments. I have not read the follow up to this first Christopher Snow book but the character is interesting (as are Christopher's friends). That is the most compelling reason for reading this novel. I feel as if Mr. Koontz actually held himself back a bit while writing this one. The premise could have gone many places, which I assume is why he wrote a sequel.

I love it so much I'm selling it. It's Dean Koontz, and exactly what you'd expect. There's a magic dog, an odd character, genetic tampering, a disappointing ending...classic Koontz.

Awesome Awesome book - Dean Koontz does not fail to deliver engrossing tale of scientific experimentation. Keep me reading into the wee hours. Although book spans only 2 days in the life of a young man with the XP generic disorder, the writing keeps you reading to find out the outcome. Also make you think about where science is heading and possible outcomes from trying too hard. High recommend this novel - will keep you reading

I have read this book and the sequel before but just had to revisit them. The other day I was perusing Amazon and happened to find a new 3 part serial of Odd Thomas that heralds the new Odd Thomas book. Anyway, it makes mention of Moonlight Bay and I went, "Oh yeah . . ." so here I am.

As one other member put it, this books reads much like the Odd Thomas series. And though I don't find myself connecting with Christopher Snow as much as the Odd One, I do enjoy his adventures. I thought that perhaps reacquainting myself with Moonlight Bay might be helpful in the coming of the rest of the O.T. serial. Fear Nothing and Seize the Night are good books that sometimes have points where the reading gets slow but that shouldn't prevent you from reading them.

Chris Snow suffers from xeroderma pigmentosum, aka XP, a condition which makes him vulnerable to skin cancer and eye problems. He cannot be in the light, especially the sun, cannot go out during the day. You might say he is allergic to the light. He is a night person. His father is dying from cancer and his mother was killed in a auto accident two years ago.

He keeps his house dark, lights with candles. When he goes over to the few friends he has, they dim their lights. It is by candlelight in the hospial that he visits his father just before his death. Later he wants to bury a picture of his mother with his dad and in the morgue he happens on a couple guys switching his dad's body before it was supposed to go to the funeral home.

Thus begins an adventure that is typical Dean Koontz, with Koontzian characters that are sometimes bizarre, sometimes crazy, sometimes shady and always very real. So real that you feel like you are running from the bad guys right along with Chris and his friends. And then there is Chris' highly intelligent dog Orsen and a whole passel (troup actually) of very bad monkees. How does Dean Koontz do it, write books as good as this?
