Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of the top-notch books to come out of the Dean Koontz factory, this books succeeds in creating a surreal world with an unlikely hero - a guy who has a rare disease that prevents him from being exposed to sun light and restricts him to roaming at night.
Well, night is when the most interesting things happen in a Koontz story and more so in this one, keeping in mind the affliction of our hero.
Koontz spins a great yarn. The sense of horror is sometimes so palpable that it makes you go check your closets and pull at the locked doors to make sure they are secure. This guy knows how to scare the beezees out of you. That much is a given.
I recommend reading this tale during nights. Adds the extra chill to the whole experience.

I only got about 100 pages into this story. I found it to be depressing and the characters were not that interesting. Pick a different book instead of this one.

"Fear Nothing" and "Seize the Night" on tape, read by Keith Szarabajka is compelling. His voice IS his character. My favorite Dean Koontz!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Koontz (Sole Survivor, LJ 2/15/97) presents a masterly tale of one night in the California coastal town of Moonlight Bay as experienced by Chris Snow. Saddled with a genetic defect that makes direct sunlight toxic to him, Snow is a nocturnal creature whose father has just died. When he discovers that his father's corpse has been stolen, he begins pursuit. Koontz expertly illuminates Snow's nocturnal world and friends, and incrementally, cleverly, the crises erupting in Moonlight Bay take shape. The plot is wonderfully unpredictable, and though the surfer slang wears thin after a while, the narrative remains taut. Although the ending leaves some questions unanswered, this is still good entertainment.

This was the first book I had read of Dean Koontz's and I was very impressed. It was very realistic and believable for a horror novel. I enjoyed the story line very much and would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys scary novels. It will not disappoint.

Chris Snow is different from all the other residents of Moonlight Bay. Chris has made peace with a rare skin disorder which forces him to stay out of the light, and he must live his life by a system of one who embraces the dark. That is until the night that Chris witnesses the mysterious dissapearance of his dad's body from the morgue. When Chris begins to investigate, he is thrown into a mystery that only he can solve. The strange inhabitants of Moonlight Bay are not only after him to shut him up, but they are after his loved ones as well. Now the mystery of the town forces him to rise above all his fears and fight against the people of Moonlight Bay. It is a place, like all places that is a lot different after dark.
Right off the bat I am saying that Fear Nothing is in Koontz's top 5. Some people have refered to this book as a carbon copy of Koontz's other scary conspiracy book entitled "Midnight". While the stories are somewhat similar, Fear Nothing is much better in my opinion. The inhabitants and other strange creatures of Moonlight Bay add a terifying background to the story. The story itself repeatedly makes you ask the one question that all fans of fiction love to hear : "Who are they, and what are they hiding?" The ending to this book is extremely satisfying which provides for an enjoyable read overall. But what really sets this book apart is its characters! Chris Snow and his best friend Bobby have to be my favorite all time characters of his. The obversity that Chris must overcome to fight the town and protect his loved ones is amazing. Koontz gives INCREDIBLE dialogue to Bobby! I love the laid back and almost Zen like surfer way of life that he lives by. Fear Nothing also features a great dog named Orson, that is almost as good as Einstien in Watchers.

Fear Nothing is the first book I¡¯ve read by Koontz, and it¡¯s also the first thriller I¡¯ve ever read in my life. I preferred and enjoyed reading this book late in the night, around 11 p.m. or 12 p.m. until i drown to dreamland. For some reason, while I had been reading this book, I had weird dreams, not exactly nightmares, but some shocking dreams that freaked me out that I would fear to dream again.
Chris Snow, the hero, has XP (xeroferma pigmentosum), a rare genetic disorder that damages the DNA if any part of the body is exposed with UV. One evening, Chris is asked to come to the hospital to see his father sleep forever, but then he witnesses his father¡¯s body being exchanged with a hitchhiker¡¯s body. The men involved in the plot chase Chris while Chris runs away from them to find some answers to the incident happened before the night ends.
There are three major reasons I liked this book. First is the role of animals. Chris¡¯s dog Orson is not a normal dog. He generally, according to my thoughts, understands everything Chris says and reacts to it. Also the cat that guides him out from the escape from the men who tries to catch him is so weird (in a good way). I have never seen and never will see a cat that guides human to a place and waits if falls behind. Second is the way Koontz unfolds the plot. Despite this book is in first person¡¯s perspective, Koontz doesn¡¯t tell how Chris feels directly, instead he tells the readers what happens around him or the scene seen through his eyes, and still keeps the scene exciting. It gave me opportunities to draw the scene in my head and imagine how the characters would have felt. Third is that every page makes the reader to read the next page.
