The Moonlit Mind: A Tale of Suspense | [Dean Koontz]

The Moonlit Mind: A Tale of Suspense

Twelve-year-old Crispin has lived on the streets since he was nine — with only his wits and his daring to sustain him, and only his silent dog, Harley, to call his friend. He is always on the move, never lingering in any one place long enough to risk being discovered. Still, there are certain places he returns to. In the midst of the tumultuous city, they are havens of solitude: like the hushed environs of St. Mary Salome Cemetery, a place where Crispin can feel at peace — safe, at least for a while, from the fearsome memories that plague him... and seep into his darkest nightmares.

Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Crispin has lived on the streets since he was nine — with only his wits and his daring to sustain him, and only his silent dog, Harley, to call his friend. He is always on the move, never lingering in any one place long enough to risk being discovered. Still, there are certain places he returns to. In the midst of the tumultuous city, they are havens of solitude: like the hushed environs of St. Mary Salome Cemetery, a place where Crispin can feel at peace — safe, at least for a while, from the fearsome memories that plague him... and seep into his darkest nightmares. But not only his dreams are haunted.

The city he roams with Harley has secrets and mysteries, things unexplainable and maybe unimaginable. Crispin has seen ghosts in the dead of night and sensed dimensions beyond reason in broad daylight. Hints of things disturbing and strange nibble at the edges of his existence, even as dangers wholly natural and earthbound cast their shadows across his path. Alone, drifting, and scavenging to survive is no life for a boy. But the life Crispin has left behind, and is still running scared from, is an unspeakable alternative... that may yet catch up with him.

    "Pace is a little slow in spots"

    Good story but pace is a little slow in spots. I had to force myself not to skip paragraphs.

    "Good story, fast paced and entertaining"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. The reader did a good job, and the story is one of those quick-paced, don't-want-to-put-it-down books that Koontz does so well. A good blend of mystery and supernatural with well-developed characters.

    Story
    "Short and Uninteresting"
    What would have made The Moonlit Mind better?

    I would have made this book longer, i would have put a twist or something in the book it felt morwe like a short story. Very disappointed in Dean Koontz it seemed like i was waiting for something that never came. VERY SAD AND DISAPPOINTED


    What could Dean Koontz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Longer, more twists and turns and maybe a few more characters


    What character would you cut from The Moonlit Mind?

    The m other of the wifes new husband. They did not explain why they couldnt see through water or statues


    Any additional comments?

    horrible
