Read full description of the books:
Dean Koontz has used so many pen names (something I hadn’t known). Ten by the count of Google. The Voice of the Night was originally published under the name of Brian Coffey (learned that here on Goodreads). But I have read quite a few of Koontz’s books in the past. A few early ones, and then a bunch through the early 2000’s. If there was one thing I could count on with his books, it’s suspense. He’s just good at it. Because of that, I liked Odd Thomas and books like Life Expectancy. Personal favorite: From the Corner of His Eye. I think he’s best when combining suspense with emotion and a touch of the supernatural.
The Voice of the Night is what then? Well, the first half was awful. Those things I mentioned above – they did not exist here. Most of the dialogue between these two boys was, to put it simply, annoying. Back, forth, back, forth. People don’t talk like this. And the direction these boys were heading put me off (BTW, the jacket description is misleading). I almost put the book down for good. But I had done just that with two recent books, and didn’t want to give up on another.
Now guess what?! I liked the second half! Koontz changed directions on me! You sly dog. He didn’t take the road I’d expected. The plot gained substance and reasoning. Suspense made an appearance. Moments of crappy dialogue remained in spots (case in point: Colin’s mom became utterly ridiculous at this point. I think she’s an excuse to free up the plot). This isn’t Dean’s “A-game” writing. The use of a pseudonym makes sense.
So this is like two books for me, one bad, one good. Together not so bad. Can’t go above 3 stars, so I’m calling it “3-stars with a plus”. Good to pick up a Dean Koontz again. Makes me want to read another of his oldies.
