a short synopsis:

Martin Stillwater is a novelist with a wife and children he adores -- and an imagination he can't control. One rainy afternoon, a stranger breaks into Martin's house and accuses him of stealing his family, his name, and his life. Martin has no choice but to take his family and flee, even as he questions his own sanity. But wherever they go, the stranger is right behind them.






Mr. Murder was a very thrilling book. I loved the way the villian of this story thought he was the real Marty Stillwater. He was so convinced that aliens snatched his life away from him. Seeing it from his perspective made the book a lot better then if you just read it from Marty's perspective. The conclusion was great. It showed me how it would feel if you had to leave something as simple as your name behind.

I liked how they described Alfie too. espicailly when he was 'forseeing' how charlotte would eventualy love him for killing her pets and thereby removing bad influences from her life. the guy was really twisted and i think that was what got at me the most about the story. overall, i wasnt very influenced by this story, and i can't really say why. it was very well-written though.

this was the second dean koontz book i read and it was really enjoyable. the part where the parents died came as a shock. the way he described alfie turning into a monster type thing when he needs food at the end gave me a really good picture in my mind of how grotesqe it looked. cool book
