More About the Author

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania where I graduated from Shippensburg State College (now Shippensburg University). When I was a senior in college, I won an Atlantic Monthly fiction competition and have been writing ever since. My first job after graduation was with the Appalachian Poverty Program, where I was expected to counsel and tutor underprivileged children on a one-to-one basis. During my first day on the job, I discovered that the previous occupier of my position had been beaten up by the very kids he had been trying to help and had landed in the hospital for several weeks. The following year was filled with challenge but also tension, and I was more highly motivated than ever to build a career as a writer. I wrote nights and weekends, which I continued to do after leaving the poverty program and going to work as an English teacher in a suburban school district outside Harrisburg. After a year and a half in that position, my wife, Gerda, made me an offer I couldn't refuse: "I'll support you for five years," she said, "and if you can't make it as a writer in that time, you'll never make it." By the end of those five years, Gerda had quit her job to run the business end of my writing career. Gerda and I live in southern California with their dog Anna, and the enduring spirit of their dog Trixie in southern California.

Dean Koontz is an international household name whose hugely entertaining parables for our times have been bestsellers in many countries, selling seventeen million copies each year.

Not being the most well read person in the world and only recently finding the time and indeed patience to read any form of book, this is an absolute must. I found it very difficult to put down and am already wading through another one of his books. The ending to this book was far from expected and seemed almost visable in the minds eye, you can almost smell the sea air and the dampness of the fog. I thouroughly enjoyed this book. I am now seeking his other books to add to my ever growing collection.

There is a cast of likely characters. Man in a wheelchair takes on role of unlikely sidekick hero; there's a woman providing the spunky heroine and love interest combined and the actual reluctant and main protagonist hero........oh and there's a dog. If you've read a few Dean Koontz novels, you will recognise the general formula and be expecting another dog. Want to guess the breed? Labrador did you say? Give yourself a gold star!
Listen, this is actually a fairly engaging read. There are strange beasts abroad at night, some gruesome Murders, a terrible corporate plot to take over the universe.....hey, wake up, I haven't finished yet. It feels very familiar but that is probably the appeal. A reliable read when you don't want to have to invest too much effort into the experience. Nothing wrong with that. OK now I'm finished.

Format: Paperback
Something is terribly wrong in Midnight Cove. Sam Booker is an FBI agent working undercover to find out what’s behind a spate of mysterious deaths; Tessa Lockland is also trying to find out the truth behind her sister’s apparent suicide. Together with a brave eleven year-old girl, a disabled veteran and his loyal canine companion, they discover that things are even stranger than they thought.

Midnight starts promisingly enough, with some genuinely creepy scenes of Tessa’s sister being chased along a foggy beach by some strange intelligent beasts; and with eleven-year old Chrissie in hiding from her parents, who have somehow changed, and are discussing her impending “conversion”. However, as we find out more about what’s going on in the town, it gets rather silly. An evil technology company has been experimenting on the residents, and this sort of thing never has good results, as the subjects are increasingly regressing to more primal, bestial states; or fusing with their computers.

This is an entertaining enough romp, in typical Koontz style. The characters are likeable, if generic, and there’s plenty of pace and action, if you can don’t take the rather more far-fetched elements of the plot too seriously.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Carl Hughes on 5 Sept. 2008
Format: Paperback
This was the first Dean Koontz book I read, and it opened my eyes to what modern horror can be like - it doesn't have to be set in creepy graveyards or consist of gore splattered all over the place. In fact 'Midnight' is as much science fiction as horror, though it's Earthbound and set in the present day. The characters are exceedingly well drawn, the plot is compelling and the concept one that really engages. As a writer, Dean Koontz is far above those who churn out pulp fiction. He is a literary writer in the best sense of the word, creating wonderful visual imagery and making his readers feel they are bound up in the storyline. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

Ah, I love early Koontz novels! They're all Californian bays, stucco walls, bougainvillea and awesome dogs. In my opinion he was at his best back when he was still Dean R. Each novel had its own clear direction that made it memorable, unlike the less distinctive output of more recent years. If you want a really fantastic, gripping read you need to go back to the early days and pick up the likes of The Bad Place, Strangers, Lightning and, of course, Midnight. Enjoy!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
a good read, the ending predictable quite early on in the story but the excitement remanied throughout. I have contnued to read Dean Koonz since discoverng his work two years ago; I now have most of his books and re-read them from time to time. this one will probably not be re-read too often due to it's predictability. See what you think!
