Yes, this book explains why I would never want to be psychic. Too much stress!! However, psychics make for great stories & good reading!
This book is about a woman who basically spends most of her time helping the police catch criminals using her psychic powers. It's not something she even really enjoys, it keeps her up at night & it's stressful on her marriage- however, she can't stop the visions. Especially the one, the one that seems to be trying to tell her something, the one leading her to evil...to someone she is close to.
This book is a quick read, only about 300 pages, which is small for Koontz. It goes by in a flash, it'll keep you guessing until the end. I'll admit- I had two guesses on who I thought the "bad guy" was, one was right, but the ending still surprised me.

Most of "The Vision" was underwhelming. But with about a third of the story left and the characters involved in a ludicrous Ouija board scene, my reading brain snagged the plot and ran with it to the end where the killer I had guessed waited in a resolution that was the same as another of Koontz's 70s-80s books.

Not my favorite, but an acceptable read. An enjoyable easy read. Koontz books don't require a lot of deep thought.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this slim novel, originally written in the late 1970s, many of the standard elements of Koontz's better work appear: psychic ability, a romantic element, gripping prose. However -- and maybe this is because I have read several other, recent novels -- I found this one predictable. The story revolves around psychic Mary Bergen's vision of several murders that seem to have familiar victims (although she can't nail down why the victims are familiar to her). She is also torn between loyalty to her brother, Alan, and her new husband, Max, who don't get along. The setting is the Christmas season, and this provides the right weather conditions -- rain and cold -- and the right contrast -- happy season v. grisly murders -- to keep the reader's interest to see what will happen next. Unfortunately -- at least for me -- I pretty much guessed 'whodunit' in the beginning, so although I doubted myself a couple of times (kudos to Koontz), I enjoyed the 'why' more than the 'who'. The end is gripping, and the fate of the core characters is up in the air. Good, but not his best.

ive read this book more times than ive read any other book on my shelves, and every time i start it i only take breaks to use the bathroom and sometimes to sleep. this was my first encounter with dean koontz but not my last, and i find that im very disappointed with some of his other books. (like Sole Survivor - yuck!) The Vision proves to be his only work that i can stomach, and even then there's a part in the ending that makes me sick. (in a good way. ;)
murder, psychic premonitions, a wild goose chase.... everything seems to add up in this entertaining page-turner.

This was a nice easy read about, Mary a clairvoyant psychic, that has a troubled past and can "see" grisly murders while they happen. It is basically about her coming to grips with her past, while at the same time she is seeing a serial killer commit murders. I found it very predictable that you are intentionally mislead (knowing darn well the author was not going to give you that kind of info. on the killer) believe it was one character. I had no problem knowing who the killer would be after a character was abruptly removed from the story...only to be never heard from again???? yeah right. Well, all in all it was entertaining.

I thought The Vision was one of Koontz better books. It was suspenseful and kept me reading until the very end. I do believe that Koontz needs to be more original in his stories. The seem to just about always be set it the same place. I didn't like the bat rape scene in this book. What kind of thing is that to write about anyway. I hope I didn't give to much about the book away.

All I could say after reading this book is "I CAN'T BELIVE ? is the killer!". This book was so suspenseful, I read it in a 3 hour sitting. It is a smooth easy short read. If you have a little extra time on your hands, don't make a mistake and read another book...READ THIS ONE!
