A shocking lightning A BUNCH OF GENRES This was the third novel that I read by Dean Koontz back in 1992.Still at that time 1992 , I read the book in a Spanish translated version since I was still in the process to be able to read on English This is another great novel of Dean Koontz that merges a lot of genresnot only horror thriller that it s what you expect when reading a Koontz s bookbut also fascinating concepts of science fiction, along with elements of military, espionage and romance too FLASHIN LIFE Meet Laura Shane.Since she was born till she is a already grown up woman.During all her life, she has been watched by a guardian angel a mysterious blond man who appears in the most desperate moments of Laura s life.Depending of your familiarity with Koontz s works, you will be able to catch some of his signature elements like the choice of Laura to become a novelist, since in many of his books, usually the protagonist, it s a writer and or an avid reader As I was commenting before, horror fans are acquainted with the name of Dean Koontz, however, this book, Lightning is also a wonderful option for fans of the science fiction genre Since I don t want to spoil much the surprises in the storyline, I prefer not to comment in detail about the events in the plot.However, if you give a chance to this book, you will realize how good is and how entertaining evolved. This novel is a combination of science fiction time travel and suspense, and the result is a book I was not be able to put down The story focused around Laura Shane Starting from birth and to adulthood around 30 I believe The other main character is Stefan A unknown guardian who keeps appearing throughout her life to save her Both are well thought out and well written characters Another character I liked in the story was Thelma Laura s childhood friend Laura goes through early life and several situations starting at her birth come up that should have hurt or even ended her life However, each time she is saved by the mysterious Stefan Who he is or why he saves her is a mystery through the first half or of the book All I will say is the Koontz did a great job adding a bit of a sci fi twist into the story This is one of my favorite all time books I first read this in middle school over 10 year ago after reading another of Koontz s books House of Thunder Since then, I have read this book several times and recommended it to fellow readers often.
