Ashley Bell by Dean Koontz

This book feels like classic Koontz writing and fresh at the same time.

It was very difficult for me to formulate my response to reading this book right after finishing it. You have the typical themes found in his books: evil, innocence, slightly off-reality type of situations yet based enough in reality to not completely lose all sense.

It may take readers a few tries to get into the story. I wasn't sure what was going on for the first few pages. But things pick up and, when you decide to give it a go, you will probably enjoy the tale.

Bibi Blair has been told she has only one more year to live. Bibi says, "if you say so" and defies the medical world.

So with this new-found experience, Bibi is sure she's saved for something bigger. And here we go with Bibi on the adventure to save Ashley Bell.

Adventures, twists, profound characters. It has it all.

What is the deal with that? Why Ashley and who are the villains? Koontz does what he does best when writing human characters that feel real but slightly off base.

This was one of the more enjoyable reads by Dean Koontz.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Bantam Publishing.
