Book 4 - False Memory

book 04Title: False Memory
Author: Dean Koontz
Genre: Psychological Horror

Plot: Martie Rhodes is a successful young computer games designer with a loving husband, Dusty, and a seemingly normal life. Her best friend, Susan, however, suffers from agoraphobia, or a fear of open spaces, and relies on Martie to take her to weekly therapy sessions. Suddenly and inexplicably, Martie herself begins exhibiting worrying signs of a mental disorder, fearing herself capable of inflicting great harm on her loved ones. At the same time, Dusty's brother Skeet also succumbs to irrational mental behavior and tries to throw himself from a roof. It soon becomes clear that these four characters are involved in something much more than a sinister coincidence. (Amazon's description)

My Thoughts: This was my first taste of Koontz, and I would say that I enjoyed it greatly. He first caught me with his descriptions of the phobias and the anxieties that the characters were going through. I was able to piece together some of the plot early on, though there were still enough surprises and shocks throughout for me to continue to enjoy the book. I found his characters interesting, and formed a particular attachment to Skeet, so that the driving force of much of my reading was based more on how he fared than on anyone else in the book.

Would I read this book again? Absolutely. I think that it will become an old friend I enjoy visiting on occasion, and it encourages me to look up other works by Koontz.

5. Definitely Dead/Charlaine Harris

6. All Together Dead/Charlaine Harris
I figured out what bothers me the most about this series. She repeats everything that ever happened all the time. You say that you are a psychic, Sookie? Sometimes you learn things that you wish you hadn't? I'm not sure if you mentioned that before... everytime we see a character again we get a complete recount of the whole history. I do like reminders, of course, I am getting old and don't remember everything but the level of it in this series is almost unbearable.
I do like that Harris doesn't do the typical romance novel thing wherein he was a jerk but it was all just a big misunderstanding. He was a jerk because he is a jerk. The end.

7. Twilight/Stephenie Meyer
I think that this series is written better than it's give credit for and I might even enjoy reading a book about a suicidal teenage girl (having been one and all that) just take out the jerk vampire or at least end up with some honesty about how pathetic it really is to look at someone else to give your life purpose. But no I doubt we'll get any of that. I probably won' be reading anymore of this series because there is no awesome sexy show to help with the badness.

8. From Dead to Worse/Charlaine Harris

9. Dead and Gone/ Charlaine Harris
I am done! Unless I read the new one. Which I probably will because I am such a fan of the show.

10. Spook/Mary Roach
A book about the scientific evidence available that the "soul" or personality or something survives death. Pretty boring actually. The evidence is scant and there are few interesting studies and histories. To me anyways.

11. Alice in Wonderland/Lewis Carroll
Such a fun book! Really fun and so textured. I actually read it again immediately.
