Simply put, this is the best bit of fiction I have read thus far, untouchable by many regards.
There is a continuous introduction to the characters while the plot develops that keeps you engrossed. Rather like a small child, surprised that they have learnt a new skill, you become enthralled by Koontz' descriptions of detail.
So what has caused the people to freak out wildly, something unnatural to themselves? Why on Earth have they become so reluctant to sleep? Sure enough as you turn the page you'll find out the plight of big-shot doctors to up and coming authors (who I think Dean Koontz has moulded as himself.)
This book will stay stuck to your hand even after you've finished it, just so that you can read it again. I absolutely loved it and I think without a shadow of a doubt it will be thoroughly enjoyed by others too.
