Book Beginnings and The Friday 56–HELLO Friday!

Book Beginnings-The Friday 56

Every Friday you have the opportunity to share the first sentence of the book you are currently reading. Starting last October I participated in Book Beginnings who is hosted by Gillian at Rose City Readers. You can too! Just include the title of the book and the author’s name. You may wish to share your impression of the book to date as well. Also please share your post with Mister Linky on her blog site. This week I am spotlighting The Night Window by Dean Koontz.

“The triple-pane floor-to-ceiling windows of Hollister’s study frame the rising plain to the west, the foothills, and the distant Rocky Mountains that were long ago born from the earth in cataclysm, now dark and majestic against a sullen sky.”

(And because there is a natural tie-in to The Friday 56, it is common to combine the two.)

The only rules are for participation in The Friday 56 is to grab a book, any book or the one you are #currentlyreading, turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader, and find a sentence (or a few, but don’t spoil it!), post it, and then add your post URL to the Linky on the host site Freda’s Voice – there yah go! How’s that for easy!

Book Beginnings and The Friday 56--The Night Window by Dean Koontz

Friday 56:

“He’s been drunk on money for so many years, he needs that high no less than a heroin addict needs his next injection. He can’t live happily without it. Another man in such a condition might seek purpose in philanthropy, but Wainwright Hollister is no more likely to give away his fortune than he is to donate his eyes to a blind man…Although buying things no longer gives him a money high, he still has one source of inebriation: wielding power over others.”

So what am I thinking?

Wow.

Just wow.

While I missed the first in this series, I’ve read from Book 2 and I must say, I enjoyed each book more than the last. But this one–this one has to be the best. And this one will also be the last in the series. So far, it’s been electrifying and unputdownable. I can’t wait to see how Koontz will bring this climax to a satisfying close, but I know it will be good. Beyond good–fabulous! The man is an expert storyteller and the way he builds his characters, his scenes, and plots the course is amazing. Waxing prose with intelligence, science, and technology. It’s a rewarding time well spent. (I got my uncorrected proof from NetGalley.) Start with book 1 if you must, but do not miss this explosive conclusion.

    1. My son explained to me that he was a horror writer. I didn’t know, never read one. While this can get a little graphic, most is off page. I’d say more suspense-thriller. I discovered I really enjoy his prose, intelligent descriptive style of writing. Thanks for the comment!
