Intensity by Dean Koontz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In this book Chyna is a 26-year-old graduate student still coming to terms with her abusive past. She is staying at her friend’s house for the weekend when Edgler Foreman Vess enters the home. When a scream pierces the night, Chyna hides under the bed. Edgler comes in and searches her room but finds no one. Driven by a weird sense of duty, Chyna ventures out to find that he has killed everyone. Frightened and alone she does not give up but hides away in his motor home. This act leads her to learn of a girl who is trapped in his basement. She takes it upon herself to save this girl and herself in the process.
Despite the dark nature of this book that will leave some readers with a pit in their stomachs, I love its power. A non-stop roller coaster ride that does not disappoint, on the front of this book, it says Intensity: A Novel. What it should say is An Intense Novel. This book is a page-turner from page one. If you plan to read Intensity make sure you make time to read it all at once because you will not be able to put it down. This is my third time though and I would not hesitate to read it again. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery, horror, and suspense.
