the darkest evening of the year

Judy got me this book for Christmas this year. I wasn't reading anything else at the time I received it so I tore right in. I was a pretty good book. It followed the usual Dean Koontz formula, but since I haven't read any of his books in a while, that was ok. There was some weird shit going on in this one, though. It makes me wonder just what kind of childhood Koontz had (growing up in Bedford County, by the way).

The main character particularly appealed to me because she headed up a dog rescue. The book didn't revolve around the rescue, though he did get a little preachy at times (for good reason--it's ridiculous how many animals end up in shelters). There were a few dog characters in the book as well, but, unlike when Stephen King writes about animals, these dogs didn't have a "thinking" role in the storyline.

I enjoyed the book (I even stayed up late the past two nights reading it), but felt the ending was a little rushed. Other than that, it was a good read.
