“I don't know if I've just read too many Koontz novels or what, but I was really disappointed with this book. He sets the stage for a great story, but I found it utterly predictable. I guessed who/what the killer was right away... Still, Koontz' style is enjoyable and the characters interesting. I...”see full review » see other reviews »

“Melanie, Laura Mccaffrey's daughter, has been missing for six years. When Laura's ex husband, and assumed daughter kidnapper, turns up dead, Laura fears the worst for Melanie...that she is dead. Laura is soon to discover that there are worse things than being killed. It appears that Melanie has been held hostage for the past six years and undergone torturous experiments by her father and his friends. These experiments have left Melanie in an autistic state; she is cut off from the world and held captive in her own mind of horrors. Occasionally she can be heard panting, scared out of her mind...the door, is opening, don't let the door open.
Laura's ex wasn't just found dead, he was found brutally murdered and smashed beyond belief. When his cohorts in crime also start turning up brutally beaten and crushed to death, everyone fears that Melanie is next. They must figure out why Melanie was held captive for so long and what the experiment was designed to do. If they can just break through to Melanie, they might be able to gather more information and ultimately set her free from the nightmare.
The Door to December was an interesting read. I was happy that it's Koontz when he's on his A game. I figured out what was going to happen fairly early on, but that didn't keep from enjoying the book. The characters in the book are on a wild ride trying to figure out the cause of the murders and we're taken along right with them. You may have to suspend belief to enjoy the book, but I have no problem doing that.”
“Koontz at his best, psycological thriller that keeps you guessing.”Deanna S. wrote this review Thursday, March 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Enjoyable, but not one of his best. I think the idea within the book was pretty good, I was just far from sure that the author had written it as well as he might have. A psychological thriller which was over-heavy on the 'psychological' (and even heavier - to the detriment of the book - on the supernatural aspects) but which kept me interested, till the 'meh' stupidness of the ending.”Monkey Davies wrote this review Tuesday, January 29, 2013.

“Dean Koontz creates thrillers the equal of the best including Stephen King. What sets Koontz apart is that is characters are likable. You care about them which makes the plot twists even more thrilling.”Jack Durish wrote this review Wednesday, May 23, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“It was a really good book and it was so good because it is a mystery.”joseph wrote this review Wednesday, April 4, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The very first Dean Koontz book I read and I was amazed. It was easy to get engrossed in what the character Melanie is going through and went through. Not to say Laura isn't sympathetic, but I was more drawn in by how things would turn out for her daughter, a character who's already went through significant trauma. Overall, this is a really emotional and unforgettable story.”Alisha wrote this review Friday, January 13, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
