    Read it if you know what's best for you. If you don't enjoy this as well as Dean Koontz being the king, then park on a hill with your car in neutral with only the e-brake engaged, pay anyone all the money you have to your name to sit in driver seat with foot on brake peddle and hand on e-brake, lay your head behind the rear tire of car, and have hired helper release foot brake and e-brake simultaneously allowing car to not only run your cranium into the pavement once...but a second time until both wheels have done this world a favor and exploded your meaningless opinions as well as your meaningless existence, all over the street. Great book.
  • The best

    By IwriteSF
    As a reader of hundreds of books and an aspiring writer, the novel that holds my highest regard is "Lightning". Do you want suspense? 10/10. Sci-Fi? 10/10. A thrilling adventure and love story? Lightning has it all. Look no further, browsing reader, and read Lightning. If Mr. Koontz reads reviews, bless you sir. You inspire future writers with your well-crafted stories as well as readers. Lightning is everything a reader could want.
