Excellent read! I found myself gripped by this storyline, and didn't ever want to put it down. It is a large book but I ripped through it pretty fast. Very unusual plot --This was the turning point book in Koontz's career, and it is clear to see why!

For some reason, I just couldn't get into this book. I read the first chapter and knew I probably wouldn't like it but I continued to read 2 more chapters in hopes that it would start getting interesting. But it didn't...not for me anyway. I've heard people say that this is their favorite Dean Koontz book, so I gave it a shot. But it was just too boring for me and right from the start I was confused because Koontz throws like 10 characters at you with not much description as to who they are and what, if any, connection they are to each other.

This is one of my favorite Koontz books. You are reading a story thru the eyes of a child. Spooky and fun.

I think this was the first Koontz book I ever read; while I was living alone for the first time, in a neighborhood my parents' wished I hadn't have found..... I was scared out of my wits! Really good - have thought about this book for many years now!

I hear that Dean Koontz is a fabulous writer, however, I could not get into the story. I would be unfair to rate it bad of good, so I wanted to rate it 50/50 in all fairness. If you like Dean Koontz, there is no reason why you should not like this book

Dean Koontz might as well have invented the term "thriller." Your heart starts racing as soon as you see his name on a title and Whispers is no exception.

This is a typical Koontz book, always keeping you guessing and causing you to keep reading for hours wanting to know what happens next.
As with all of his books, I enjoyed it very much!

Typical Koontz novel with excellent main character development, suspenseful plot and happy ending. This book is more realistic than most of his novels and doesn't employ fantastic elements.
All in all, one of his bests.

Another Dean Koontz winner! Usually I do not like books with a lot of romance in them. (If I wanted romance, I would read romance!) But this one is well written and pulled me in. I laughed, I cried, I thanked God for my healthy happy relationships. A page turner right up until the climax on page 498 of 502!! Trust me, you really don't want to know what the whispers are.

A beautiful screenwriter, Hilary Thomas, is confronted in her own home by an intruder named Bruno Frye. It seems that Mr. Frye has been stalking Ms. Thomas in the belief that Ms. Thomas is his long deceased mother, Katherine, who has ostensibly come back from the dead in order to kill him. He feels that he must kill her, before she kills him.

Of course, Ms. Thomas has no clue as to why Frye has singled her out. She is aware only of his murderous intent, and she is afraid, very afraid. On Frye's first go around with Ms. Thomas, she survives. On the second go around, Frye does not. Thinking herself to be safe, as Frye has seemingly gone to his maker, she is shocked when he, yet again, confronts her with deadly intent.

I just wasn't able to get into this one. Koontz seems to be a competent and inventive writer; perhaps he just needs a better editor to help him energize the rather wooden characters, and to eliminate the needless verbiage that repeatedly distracts from the point of the story. As it was, the plot was more tedious than terrifying.

Hilary Thomas knew terror as a child, but never anything like this. He is hunting her with a sick desire more terrifying than hatred could ever be. And he is in her house again. Hilary killed him once and he keeps coming back.

Completely different book than that of another novel by the same name (different author). This is true Koontz at his creepiest best.
