Description

Their only chance to survive is to discover the meaning of the messages that Shep, with precious time running out, begins to repeat, about a man who does his work. He uses these incredible metaphors to describe situations and scenes on one page and then on the next page he says something simple like "he was big time dead" - - it's great.

In ancient Greek legend (for example) the moon goddess Selene fell in love with a mortal shepherd, Endymion. We bring so much cultural baggage to the moon that it usually looks different on our cameras than it does in real life. As a first time mum I felt helpless and lonely with no one that could help me out of my sleep deprived haze.

Dylan, an artist traveling around the country with his autistic brother Shephard, advises Jilly to join them on a mad ride away from the ominous, as yet unseen, baddies. However, the ride preceeding it is really interesting and captivating enough, and at some points even touching so let's forgive old Dean this one time. This elusiveness is a theme that frequently appears in artistic representations, whether that’s the swirling ephemerality of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night, the romantic contemplation of Caspar David Friedrich’s Two Men Contemplating the Moon, the dream-like atmosphere of Henri Rousseau’s Sleeping Gypsy or enigmatic Bronze Age objects such as the 1600 BCE “ Nebra Sky Disk”. Deriving its name from two Latin words “sol’, meaning sun, and “sistere”, meaning to stand still, the winter solstice happens when the sun appears at its most southerly position, making the day on which it occurs the shortest day of the year, and in turn creating the longest night for the Northern Hemisphere.

Koontz's prose is both eloquent and gripping, painting vivid scenes that immerse you into the heart of the story. fascinating,intriguing and an amazing storyline with some well defined and well developed cast of characters. During a stay at an Arizona motel, he is knocked out and tied up by a doctor, who administers 18 cc's [1] of a golden substance from a syringe with a large-bore hypodermic needle. Also, this book was supposed to be spooky - but I was laughing out loud at Koontz's humor and I even had to go and read halarious lines outloud to other people around me.NO SPOILERS* This book does have them constantly on the run, I've been on a streak of reading Koontz books and I'm seeing quite a few trends. If you’re looking for a bit of brainless, cheesy fun with lots of gun action and wonky science, you could do much worse.

Published pseudonymously in 1985, Koontz has revised this thriller portraying a pediatric psychiatrist's attempts to unravel the mental trauma suffered by her estranged nine-year-old daughter. This chance encounter brings the two together, and they (with Dylan’s autistic brother Shep in tow) are off for a high-stakes adventure as they discover the depths of the supernatural powers they have been granted, and just why this happened to them of all people. Holly does what she does best, and has beautiful, meaningful chats with some favourite celebrities, that of course come with a whole dollop of laughter, too. A reassuringly simple yet enchanting story, brought to life with appealing illustrations, to allay children's worries about moving house and creating a home.

I found myself skipping over whole pages of descriptions to get to the actual story (which wasn't too bad in and of itself). A gently emotional story to reassure fears about moving house, with stunning artwork and a wonderful magical element.
