This is a perfectly named book. Seriously. The entire story is intense and totally gripping. I couldn‘t stop reading even when I wanted to curse out the main characters for her decisions. Loved it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Although Koontz can get carried away with descriptions, I can definitely confirm that this book lived up to the title. I doubt it could've been achieved with anything less than what Koontz described so I won't hold it against him. I do wish there had been more to Vess but overall a good book.

Anyone watched this? I'm halfway through with the book but I LOVE seeing a movie or series after. I did hear there was a blatant theft of concept for a movie called High Tension. May have to watch both.
Finally ripping off the bandaid and giving this a go. I've been avoiding it and reading smaller novels because my last Koontz took me awhiiiiiiiile. #Phantoms Fingers crossed I finish this before the little one arrives 👶
I always enjoy Dean Koontz‘s novels. You always get into the action right away. I started this book while on vacation in Seattle. I had just finished one book and picked this up to read a chapter or two before going to sleep. I should have known better. I was up until 3am. (And you get a picture of me with my sister‘s girlfriend‘s cat because I don‘t have one of the book.)
Sorry my pictures aren‘t prettier. I‘m at a hotel. I thought about using my view as a background for the book but the blackout curtain was actually a pain in the butt to close. This picture is hanging in my room. Better than the plain white sheets.

Aptly named. I felt anxious from start to finish. One of the few thrillers I've read that was actually thrilling.
Day 29:A Book📖when I need the day to myself-I received this book from my Amazing🛥CC while I was in the ⚓️USCG🌊;during a time when he knew how much someone like me would appreciate the company of a good book📚, & I still find myself reaching for it after all these years sometimes just to read it & remember his kindness🙂💙 #SurvivingDecember #BookTherapy #PhotoChallenge #Day29
Unfortunately, I do not have a copy of this book. The only photo that I could find that would fit is blurry, so apologies for that. I found this years ago on the bookshelf of a vacation rental property on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The book title is perfect! I will never forget how petrified I felt reading this. The main character is a serial killer and is without a doubt #insaneinthebrain !😬#90sinjuly
These are a few of my many #horror shelves, but this shelf is primarily dedicated to mass markets, which were almost all bought secondhand for $1 or less and are definitely "well loved" in appearances. I don't add to this collection often these days, because I like mass markets less and less the older I get.
The books are waiting patiently for the speed dating event. Will it be love at first sight? Will a book go home with someone or out for coffee? (Today is all thrillers, mysteries, and horror.)
I'm currently listening to this one- co-worker said she couldn't STOP reading.. but had to put the book down occasionally to catch her breath and to relax a bit! I will admit to not really noticing the traffic around me while listening intently.. so far- I've actually spoken to or hollered at the main character a number of times- contemplating getting it on Kindle so I don't have to wait till my next drive to find out what happens!
If you are looking for a thrill you could do worse then Intensity by Koontz. I was terrified from start to finish but was desperate to make sure everything turned out OK. If you're a fan of Stephen King you'll enjoy this book. I'll be needing a romance to calm down now I think!
...to resist and fight back, to hold on to hope and dignity and faith in the future. But victimhood was seductive, a release from responsibility and caring: Fear would be transmuted into weary resignation; failure would no longer generate guilt, but, instead would spawn a comforting self-pity
