Ticktock: A Novel | Dean Koontz
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Dean Koontz's The City. Tommy Phan is a 30-year-old Vietnamese-American detective and novelist living in Southern California, and a chaser of the American Dream. He drives home his brand-new Corvette one day to discover a strange doll on his doorstep. It's a rag doll made entirely of white cloth, with no face or hair or clothes. Where the eyes should be, there are two crossed stitches of black thread. Five sets of crossed black stitches mark the mouth, and another pair form an X over the heart. He brings it into the house. That night, he hears an odd little popping sound and looks up to see the crossed stitches over the doll's heart breaking apart. When he picks up the doll, he feels something pulsing in its chest. Another thread unravels to reveal a reptilian green eye --and not a doll's eye, because it blinks. Tommy Phan pursues the thing as it scrambles away into his house -- and then is pursued by it as it evolves from a terrifying and vicious minikin into a hulking and formidable opponent bent on killing him.

This was fair Koontz. Not the best I‘ve read by him, but not the worst (I‘m looking at you, Forever Odd). Tommy opens his door to find a rag doll, which he brings into his house. Only it‘s not just a doll, is it? The book had some creepy moments, but it was more of a fun supernatural romp. I laughed out loud several times. Quick read, would recommend for lighter fare.

Dean Koontz does creepy very well while making the supernatural seem absolutely plausible. #AllHallowsRead

Side note: I used to travel often for work having to fly alone. I would read Dean Koontz of Stephan King especially if I had layovers. I always thought if the stories freaked me out I would have heightened senses.in the airport like a ninja. 😊

CindyMyLifeIsLit An airport ninja! 😂 I love that! 3y

Finished this book this week. Took me a little bit to get into it as the start is a bit slow, but the roller-coaster ride the book takes you on in the main characters survival kept me intrigued. I ended up really liking it.

When I read this, many years ago, I was home alone. It was the first book that creeped me out all on it's own. Every noise felt a million times louder and like that little doll was coming for me. It has stuck with me ever since.
My sister found this autographed copy for my birthday last year. 😊
