Tuesday Book Review on Wednesday


Three-star review of Quicksilver by Dean Koontz

 As much as I usually enjoy Koontz’s thrillers from start to finish, this wasn’t the best. It started well but somewhere past the middle the narrative went from action-packed adventure to telling, as if he was in a hurry to get to the end and couldn’t patiently take us along. Yes, there were still tense moments and a few scenes showing what happened to Quinn Quicksilver and company, but I lost some of the moments of discovery and overcoming the odds. Perhaps he didn’t want to get into the disgusting behavior of The Light’s flock, but there were enough descriptive words to convey that. Still, Koontz’s command of the English language is superb and the characters were fun, especially the dog.
