Three minutes pass -So you hreathless I devised this new cool story about this dude who mets this girl. I loved the suspense of the opening – as Grady discovers the “creatures”. Koontz doesn’t know me. The idea is marginally interesting.
Neither words nor time healed anyone. With millions of generations of breathlesa of individuals, you can have trillions of mutations. Is this the character of the book? How awesome is that?
The stance against science ruins the wonder. Not even close…unless you count the aftermath of my screaming in frustration at having to finish this book. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. His opening chapters were great. I personally am not, but Dean Koontz apparantly is because the dog is the only character in this book with any personality and since he can’t talk it doesn’t really deam much for me.
Grady Adams—a powerful and private man—and Camilla Rivers—a deeply damaged healer—are thrust into breeathless epicenter of a changing world when faced with a decision to blindly follow authorities or stand up for what they believe is right.
Unfortunately in the last 3 books I’ve read by Mr.
Ok, that was the last one I promise You know how much do I sell? Luckily the role of villain is taken over after page by a Homeland Security official, the only character I truly felt was great in his role. So as much as I’d like to rate the book higher I go with a 3 star rating and it only just got breathhless.

I really enjoyed how detailed the character descriptions were in Breathless. When you temporarily lose sight of all around you, you know that it is another breathlesa written by Dean Koontz. Breathless by Dean Koontz. Koontz implements that in this book and breathlesa works very well. The characters are uninteresting at best. Only a member of this blog may post a comment. Surely you can hear the built-in marketing campaign that comes with the title of the novel?
Dean Koontz also seems to believe that in order to evolve fully, we must become animals again. Dean Koontz usually can usually fill that role.
Elitist Book Reviews: Breathless
It’s what I call a “quickie ending” – Koontz just dewn ended the book instead of expanding and explaining on some of the details. He had so many subplots going, that at the end, things that I had expected to fall together or somehow connect, didn’t.
The lovely descriptions of the Irish Wolfhound made me fall in love with him almost instantly, and I did not want anything even if it is just fiction to happen to him. I was so glad to read a good Koontz book after the re This book is classic Dean Koontz – supernatural elements, wonderfully intelligent dogs, and a strong male lead character.
Maybe now I’ll stay away for good I literally mumbled “Oh, C’mon.
You know, I would love to read a DK book wherein the main dog is like The good, the bad and the ugly literally and how their fates are interlinked with eachother. There are too many characters, and he could have used a much more firm hand at editing I would have cut out entire chapters, honestly but, aside from its flaws, the basic plot is magical and sweet.
Thank you for your sharing here…. He is the kind of husband women should avoid with a ten-foot pole. Retrieved from ” https: One of my favorite styles of writing is when the author has three or more stories going simultaneously and then combines them all at the end so you see how all of them pertain to each other.
For the mandatory Dean Koontz creepy character, we get Henry. Breathless by Dean Koontz Goodreads Author. I will be able to reread his old stuff with enjoyment, but I will never again read a new Dean Koontz novel – he is no longer a thriller writer, but just another of the many “Christian” writers who have sprung up in the wake of the “Left Behind” series.
His entire ordeal probably could’ve been fleshed out and made into its own book. I don’t want to spoil the book in case someone finds themselves trapped in an airport and every other book at the newstand is sold out, but the anticlimactic ending of this book made me want to get my money back – even though I got the book from the library.
I am a huge Koontz fan, but it seems that this author is past his prime. It was your typical Dean Koontz. So he didn’t invite me to Fiji for mai-tais and to throw around ideas for a sensible ending. I think that it is, in fact, one of the things that separates good writers from great writers, when they can bring you around to their way of thinking without even making you aware that you are being convinced, when a story is written in such a way that it opens you up to a lifestyle or an idea you’d never thought about before.
He being a dog and animal lover has in a couple of books seen the innocence and unconditional love of dogs and to a lessor extent other animals as a path or conduit to “that” possibly God’s but I don’t want to put words in his mouth or pen love. The pasts of the characters, rather than actually adding to the story, are just there as filler. So overall, skip this book.
