Book #29: 50 Book Challenge 2012

The Funhouse - Dean Koontz

This was a strange story, but I liked it.  It was like a darker "Something Wicked This Way Comes" ... what I didn't like was the something missing:  The good guys won in the end - but they didn't know why.  They didn't solve the puzzle.  The reader knew why the characters were fighting the good fight - but the protagonists were just trying to stay alive and didn't know why there was an evil thing coming after them.  It would've been a more satisfying read if they could've put the pieces together as the reader does throughout.
