I have read many of Koontz's books, and honestly there wasn't one that I didn't like. He is pretty consistent with his writing. That aside, this was a good book.

In Los Angeles, a hot Hollywood director, high on PCP, turns a city street into a fiery apocalypse. Heroic LAPD officer Jac McGarvey is badly wounded and will not walk for months. His wife and his child are left to fend for themselves against both criminals that control an increasingly violent city and the dead director’s cult of fanatic fans. In a lonely corner of Montana, Eduardo Fernandez, the father of McGarvey’s murdered partner, witnesses a strange nocturnal sight.

On that isolated ranch they discover their destiny in a horrific encounter with a ruthless and puzzling enemy from which neither the living nor dead are safe.

I finished The Vision about two weeks ago. Work keeps me quite busy. Here I am now, giving you my review for a decent book. Stick around and see what I think.

The Ugly: There are two instances in the book, just two but enough to drown out the book, where Mr. Koontz made one paragraph a complete sentence. All he did was kept saying “and” over and over again. It was like a complete rookie mistake. I don’t think he could have made that as a conscious effort. It was two run-on sentences that lasted almost an entire page.

The Bad: Even though there is an epic twist in the book, it was one you could see coming from miles away. There were way too many red herrings in the book to count. You could see them the second you read them. The only reason I’m not putting this as “the ugly” is because of the nice twist.

The Good: The story is best part here except for the obviousness of who the killer is. I’m not trying to give too much away because of the surprise, but just know, out of the works he has written up to this point this is the best story. Hopefully the writing gets better.

Final Thoughts: I was going to give this a 4-star rating, but those two sentences that ran for most of a page took away from the book. They aren’t until towards the end of the book, but enough to hurt the book. I would say read it.

I don't know why the negative reviews knocked Dean Koontz's "usual formula". I have a suggestion...if you don't like it find another author! This one was full of surprises and plot turns that I did not see coming at all. Fast paced, great character development, and a great plot. His characters grow on you!

Synopsis:
Mary Bergen is a psychic that uses her abilities to help the police. With a serial killer on the loose, Mary begins having terrifying visions of murder victims who seem strangely familiar. She knows the answers lie buried in her past, rooted in the torture she endured at the tender age of 6. With her new husband, Max and her ever-faithful brother, Alan by her side, Mary must find answers fast before she ends up being the killer's next victim. Further complicating the situation, Alan and Max hate each other. Each is distrustful of the other and both are possessive of Mary's time and attention.

Review:
You can definitely tell this is one of Koontz' earlier works as it's a bit predictable, even bordering on trite at times. Even so, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It's short for a Koontz novel and fast paced which makes for an easy read. I was pretty sure I knew "whodunit" within the first 100 pages but the "why" was much harder to figure out. Overall, I'd say there are enough twists and turns in this book to keep most readers satisfied.

I am a sucker for a murder mystery, but it has to be well written and this one is, as far as I am concerned...I don't want to give anything away, so I'll be careful what I say; this way, if you read it, you can go through what I did! I always try to guess who the culprit is, unless they outright tell me, so I was going crazy since I didn't know who it was! I work at home and had to fight the urge to ignore my job so that I could read and read...it prolonged the enjoyment over all, kind of like foreplay!!
I really liked the book, most definitely...love Dean Koontz!!

As a general rule a writer's earlier works are never near the quality of those that come later. This book, compared to the magnificent "Innocence", is unfair to a novice writer. The insight and knowledge of the human condition mixed with the supernatural is a trademark of the later Dean Koontz volumes. "The Vision" was a fast read and I enjoyed it. I knew what I was getting when I ordered it and it was good enough. For pure pulp fiction excellence John D. McDonald cannot be beaten and this earlier work by Koontz is no where near that standard. In his later works came the greatness.

This was an odd story . I'm not quite sure how I felt about it . It does keep you guessing as to who is the " bad guy " though . After I finished it I realized that I wasn't fond of the players in the story . Then I read what Mr. Koontz had written at the back of the book . He had written this as a very young man . So you be the judge

If you like Stephen King's The Tommyknockers, you will probably like this. Very entertaining book. It was my first Dean Koontz book, so I'll be interested to check out some of his other writing.
I absolutely love Koontz novels for the most part. This one was a little too predictable for me. It had me guessing a couple times though, on the "bad" guy. I think, if you were new to Koontz books, you might enjoy it more, and it might not have been as predictable. Also, the thing that I normally love about his novels, which is his awesome ability to develop his characters, was missing in this one quite a bit. But, I think that is more true of his older novels. The Vision was a very quick read. And a basically good story line. Just not as much depth to it as his newer stuff...which is my favorite. Worth reading, just not his best stuff.
