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.

This book introduces us to Christopher Snow, who suffers from XP, a rare disease that makes him vulnerable to light. The death of his father sweeps him into a mystery involving his town, the local military base, and the dangerous experiments within...

Great Characters, 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 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.

This book is hard to put down. The story pulls you into the plot and holds you fast til the last page. The characters had real depth and most of them were nice people and love the pet dog alot.

What a wonderful start to the first in the Moonlight Bay series. This book has some of Koontz's best writing and the characters are wonderful.
