I’ve read a few of Dean Koontz's books (The Good Guy, The Husband, Your Heart Belongs to Me, Relentless and Velocity), so I assumed (yes I know what that work means) 77 Shadow Street would be similar. I didn’t realise that Koontz writes “horror” novels. I can cope with the “horror” being people who do horrible things, but supernatural horror, scares me BIG time.

I found the first half of 77 Shadow Street hard going; I was too scared to read too late into the night, so this became a daytime book (sure cuts down my reading time) and meant that I wasn’t able to finish it before the end of January.

To say that I was ecstatic when I found the real reason for the shadows, ghosts and creatures is an understatement. Koontz gave a believable reason for the “occurrences” and turned a “horror” into an “omg” moment.

I read the second half of the book much more quickly, and started to enjoy the stories of the residents of The Pendleton.
