This is a great book by Dean Koontz. He just keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what is coming next in the book. The events which occur to the little boy and the dog had me constantly anticipating what was about to happen, and then he throws the curve ball and it's nothing like you thought it was gonna be. NOT A PREDICTABLE BOOK BY NO MEANS.
I loved IT!
A brush with death prompts L.A. policeman Jack McGarvey to move wife Heather and son Toby up to Quartermass Ranch, a Montana estate bequeathed to them by Eduardo Fernandez, the father of Jack's former partner. The McGarveys settle in, dismissing strange noises and smells, as well as weird trances that seem to grip Toby from time to time, as the embodiment of common fears of urbanites confronted by open spaces. It seems Eduardo had had uninvited visitors: the Givers, creatures from another dimension who came for an incomprehensible, apparently evil purpose. Scared out of his wits, Ed succumbed to a heart attack, but not before scrawling his discovery on a legal pad and stashing it in the freezer. These Givers are actually takers, assuming control of bodies and corpses to use them as vehicles in which to create mayhem. And now they want control of Toby.
Excellent read. I love the way that Koontz brings his characters together and makes everything so edge of the seat interesting.
Very creepy, I love Dean Koontz... but not happy with the ending.
A suspenseful tale that entertained me well as a Koontz fan.
