Innocence - Dean R. Koontz

3.5 out of 5


I can't put into words why I didn't care for this book as much as I usually do Dean Koontz. If I hazard a guess, it's because of non-linear nature of the story. It's a good book, an interesting set of circumstances (as his books usually are). The edition I read has a "Bonus Story" with more on the back story of the primary character. Given the way the book is laid out, putting this information at the end, seems to be the best place. I wouldn't recommend reading it first. But I am glad that it was there and I had the opportunity to complete the story with it.
