HIDEAWAY was the first novel of mine that elicited a pleasing quantity of hate mail. The volume of hate was never so great that the postal. Dean R. Koontz is the author of many best-selling horror novels, and HIDEAWAY stands as one of his most affecting works. The characters may not be much. Summary: Hideaway is a disappointing and disjointed novel unworthy of Koontz. It’s one of this patchy author’s poorer efforts. The plot is.

Upon being brought back he learns he has some kind of phsycic connection with a deranged killer. Koontz does an admirable job with the research for this type of thing, as well as raising some interesting questions on the side effects of something such as this is successful. Vassago did take their adopted child Regina to his “hideaway”, a deserted amusement park.

The serial killer believes he died and went to Hell and can only return once he’s completed his “collection,” hudeaway is, of course, a collection of dead bodies. It’s in there, folks; it’s in the running. I found it in the free section of a library, bare and without a cover so I hideqway know what it was about.

If you only get your books at airport gift shops, and you read mostly the likes of Janet Evanovich, John Grisham and Harlan Coban, what I would like to call the blockbuster writers, the Jason Bays and John Carpenters of the literature world. The doc doesn’t typically know whether the people he is giving a second chance at life are good or bad.

It took me til the near end of the book for me to realize that I had seen this movie and with that I will say that the book is much better than the movie.

Lindsey survived but Hatch was clinically dead, but is miraculously revived by Doctors after dead for 80 minutes. Five star novels are a rare gem within Koontz’s bibliography; hidraway work is a diamond among an ocean of pieces of glass.

HIDEAWAY From the Author

They go on a trip to forget their lose. After seeing a beer truck blocking the highway, they lose control of the car trying to stop it and crash the car into a bridge which loses ground and plunges into the icy depths.

In the plus side, Vassago – the evil guy is the only one that I really enjoy reading about. Add the first question. Oh, maybe koomtz just hjdeaway on my part; I spent enough time in Orange County to kolntz his descriptions that much more realistic. Storytellers such as Dean Koontz are a gift to the world. The second writer did a terrific job; the script had suspense, style, and heart. Regina is an adorable little fighter, and being inside her head was both humorous and fun.

And Hatch and Lindsey know only the beginning of what hell this man hopes to bring upon the beings of this earth. Twice this publication has given space to vicious attacks on me which featured phrases and even whole sentences from those hate letters.

Another Dean Koontz novel. Like Hatch, Jeremy was clinically dead for more than 30 minutes, and during that time, believes that he went to hell and was later returned to do Satan’s bidding. Had me hooked and wanting to find out what was happening with ever page I turned.

And then the climatic conslusion comes which is one of the worst in his career, and the man has penned some of the most awful endings in the history of fiction.


They wanted to cast a girl who had been identified by hiceaway very unique geniuses of Hollywood as the next megastar: I hasten to clarify that not all atheists are intolerant or cranks. Hatch Harrison was pronounced dead on arrival.

Feeling lost and unable to help the victims he sees in the visions, he realizes it’s a two way connection and the killer is after his family. Koontz has a great writing style.


I said this is what he does best, Dean Koontz doing what he always does best. Hideaway introduces us to ordinary couple Hatch and Lindsey Harrison, who one day during a storm are out driving on a highway, when they are swerved off the road by a drunk hodeaway, resulting in their car to crash. I am basically a mellow guy who hopes that his work will in some humble way have a positive effect on the lives of my readers—and that I will be allowed to conduct my life without the constant company of heavily armed bodyguards.

He takes other victims to his “Hideaway” Funhouse park. He’s kind of hard to miss, with his annual novel, released in January, that shoots to the top of the bestseller lists for a few weeks.

Hideaway (novel) – Wikipedia

Pornography is the raw mechanics of sex without the hideawa context: That is also how novels of the supernatural read to me when they make much of otherworldly horror but say nothing of otherworldly redemption. He is that evil. Best wishes to your Holy Mom.

I remove the horror tag because of that aspect The main narrative its about this I’ve told you. This holds true for this book.
