I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Velocity by Dean Koontz

Velocity - Dean Koontz

Another quick read by Dean Koontz, also similar to Intensity it wasn’t as scary as I hoped it would be.  As I was reading it I often found myself skimming some of the paragraphs because I felt like something scary was going to happen, but it never did, the scary scenes came out of nowhere.  Despite the fact that I wasn’t expecting the scary scene I didn’t get a fright or even a start, the tension just didn’t build the way I would have expected it to.  Kind of like a horror movie without the creepy music.  I enjoyed the story but thought it had a lot more potential than it showed in the actual writing.  Koontz could have made it a lot more thrilling if there had been a few more notes left for Billy – killing more of his friends, maybe.  I didn’t understand why he put so many chapters in the book; there were 77 at the end, some of them only two pages long.  I also didn’t get exactly why Valis wrote the notes or why he chose Billy, he said something about Billy’s short stories but I don’t think that fully explains his motive.
