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.

HIDEAWAY From the Author

It was a throbbing heart, trailing torn arteries and veins. He has a strong theme of the battle between good and kontz in many of his books that I find I really enjoy.

He feels the man’s thoughts, his anger, his hatred of the living. Having read his review I must agree with everything Dave Martin has to say about this book, Koontz seems these days to go for quantity rather than quality and does his public followers no favours, if only he were more like James Herbert who is the complete opposite.

But no matter what, his protagonists are not just good, they’re humble; his villains are not just bad, they’re psychotic, and should be shot down like dogs; and his chase scenes are the best ride this side of Star Tours. The plot is not exactly propelled along either thanks to an almost complete lack of action.

Harry as Roger R. I found this storyline definitely added to the reality, especially as shown through the nideaway of Regina, a 12 year old orphaned girl. I remove the horror tag because of that aspect Vassago, the serial killer in “Hideaway” fascinates me, probably more so than the protagonist, Hatch Harrison, an oddly-named man who is resuscitated eighty minutes after death, and who is then cursed with a psychic link to Vassago.

Hatch Harrison was pronounced dead on arrival. And at the same time, Vassago flashes on Hatch’s world, including Lindsey and spunky, crippled Regina, the orphan the Harrisons have just adopted in their new embrace of life after years of mourning a son lost to cancer. The main narrative its about this I’ve told you. Half a dozen of my pen pals wished me dead; one threatened to kill me if given a chance.

hixeaway Hideaway introduces us to ordinary couple Hatch and Lindsey Harrison, who one day during a storm are out driving on a okontz, when they are swerved off the road by a drunk driver, resulting in their car to crash. The volume of hate was never so great that the postal service had to deliver it in eighteen-wheelers—a mere fifty letters—but it satisfied. I used an audiobook by Brilliance Audio to help me through this the second and third time – at the end of that program is a fun, insightful interview with Dean Koontz.

In “Hideaway”, he really outdoes himself in his Orange County environment, so convincingly creating that amusement park out in the wilds of San Juan Capistrano that I asked myself if it might actually exist. Recently as I write thisI received in excess of pieces of koomtz mail from a number of anarchists who did not like the fact that a serial killer in The Face was also an anarchist.


Pick it up in a charity shop, read the first page and the joontz. In the plus side, Vassago – the evil guy is the only one that I really enjoy reading about. However, his near-death experience has left him with disturbing visions of murder and violence that seem all too real. Lindsey barely survives a car crash into an icy river.


Although these days Koontz has adopted a faster paced, more modern writing style, Hideaway was written back in the day when Koontz wrote in a style similar to Stephen King causing endless comparisons to each other: It came as a surprise during my first reading. I do not—and koonzt the time did not—hate the director. Hatch, her koohtz is actually pronounced dead for over sixty minutes.

True Crime Video After Vassago’s defeat, the Harrison family strengthen their bond to each other, with Regina insists of calling her adoptive parents Mom and Dad.

This is a supernatural thriller with a spiritual message and it mixes Dean Koontz is my favorite author and this book is my favorite one by him.

I made the deal only after the head of the studio, at that time Mike Medavoy, gave me his home phone number and promised that if at any point I received a script that desecrated the novel, he would ensure the revisions I wanted would be executed; in an extreme situation, a new writer would be brought aboard to start over.
