Can I recommend that nobody ever reads 'The darkest evening of the year' by Dean Koontz.
You'll thank me.
Actually, if anyone has read it can they just confirm that I didn't imagine that ending? My 10 year old would baulk at such a cop out. If he'd finished with '...and it was all a dream' I'd have been more satisfied.
I only read it because it had been bought for me by my daughter who thought he was a 'horror' writer (and you like that rubbish Dad). It's been years since I read one and it'll be decades before I read another.

Can't stand him. Very few authors make me put down a book on the first page. Even fewer make me pick it back up again to see if it can get any worse. On the latter, he did not disappoint.

My stepdaughter's a fan of his, so I've tried to read a few. Not good. They fly off the shelves, though.Confused
