4.0 out of 5 stars Nice taster, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wilderness: A short story (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This is a preview for Koontz's up and coming novel. His writing is sparkles and builds up the tension with his usual finesse. The tale begins with an 8 year old who is cruelly abused verbally by his mother who has taken him to live far away from civilisation in a forest, supposedly because he is so monstrous looking, where he has never come into contact with any other human being but his mother during his entire life. Out exploring he encounters a man, the first he has ever seen in real life, who tries to kill him.
Considering the vast number of bargain full length novels at 99p these days, it seems a bit steep for just over 30 pages. I'll admit I was expecting more story than I got for the price, but he is one of the top, and my most favourite writers, so I suppose this is the equivalent of designer pricing.
As for his new novel coming through, at £12, I'll wait a while. The storyline previewed is ringing bells, I'm pretty sure I've read something with this story line or very similar before, so I'm not curious enough to spend on this new one immediately.
