      OMG, I haven t read a book like this in years, and don t think I ll be reading one again any time soon Intensity is the perfect name for this one It starts right off with an intruder on a killing rampage, and never lets up I know, how can I keep reading, but the suspense was beyond belief, and the writing incredible Just the other day I was driving in the mountains, noticing a blue truck was constantly behind me He even made the same turn I did on a dirt road Was he coming to kill me How will I [...]

      The intense of the intensity initiates from the long drawn out somewhat terrifying scenes of Chyna hiding from Vess in attempts to go unnoticed and to survive, and the intense of the intensity continues with fiery Chyna Shepherd, Untouched and Alive Chyna Shepard had a hard and candidly distressful childhood and she opened up to nobody The main companion she knew and trusted was Laura Chyna voyaged home with Laura for spring break and keeping in mind that gazing out the window amid her restless [...]

      An excellent book, full of suspense It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through and the temptation to rush to the end to see what happened was huge But I was good and enjoyed every word of it There is a very surprising little twist to the tale at the very end which was nice It is always good to leave a book on a high and that is certainly the case here Dean Koontz s books do vary in quality but this is one of the good ones,

    7. Katie Ziegler (Life Between Words) on said:

      I have never read a action packed book in my life It never once let up almost from page one In some ways it was a little disorienting because you never had a moment to breathe, but at the same time that s also what you really want when you read a thriller The writing was meh, nothing special But the story itself was skillfully told And obviously unsettling You get in the head of a serial killer, and who really wants to spend any time in that place Not me And yet, I read the whole book in two da [...]

      Re reading for September 2015 with Koontzland group As with many Koontz novels, I enjoyed this one the second time around First of all I liked Koontz descriptions, vivid but not too long His use of simile and metaphor enhanced the reading for me I won t go into the plot because many other reviewers have done that As for characterization, Chyna is one of Koontz strongest female characters She fought for herself as a young girl and continues to fight the obstacles in her path Chyna is as intense [...]

    9. Stacy on said:

      I think I have sadly hit my limit with Koontz My first book by this author was AMAZING The second was just as amazing Then somewhere down the road, the villains all started to meld together The villains became a little predictable for me because they all shared the same qualities Now that doesn t mean that this book didn t entertain me There were times that my heart was racing and I was scared to death for the MC The first 60% of the book was the best I just wanted it to be over after that point [...]

    10. J.K. Grice on said:

      I suppose many people feel that Koontz s books are a dime a dozen But INTENSITY is as good a thriller as I ve ever read, and that was 16 years ago Very visceral and very scary It reminds me a bit of the recent thriller,, which was one of my favorite books of 2017.

    11. Josh on said:

      I decided that I would write a little about the books that I finish for now on This was a very scary story I have to say that it actually scared me sometimes and that is pretty hard to do Intensity is a very appropriate title for this book, I couldn t stay away from it Definately a plesant surprise after reading Dean Koontz s Life Expectancy This book never let up on it s suspense from beginning to end If anyone is looking for a good horror, Intensity fits the bill Be warned though, this book ha [...]

    12. Briana Patterson on said:

      This is thriller suspense at its best Dean Koontz knocked my socks off with this one, and as soon as I started reading, I could not get through it fast enough Pages burned and I might have had to stomp my book out a few times In a way, this is not entirely typical for Dean Koontz Don t expect anything supernatural or overly bizarre It s about a killer and a survivor The title holds true to its pace This book does not slow down once it kicks into high gear It ll freak you out, and there s some gr [...]

    13. Shelby on said:

      The last 200 pages of this book are what makes me want to give it 5 stars but I didn t enjoy it as much as I hoped to, so four stars it is The end plot twist was something I did not see coming and for that I applaud Koontz I read this book relatively quickly and I didn t have to force myself to keep reading.

    14. Naomi on said:

      This book is well written, I m sure From the moment I started reading it I felt sick to my stomach from the overly detailed homicidal and torturous events, but also I could not stop reading it because the author held a small hope of the heroine doing some lasting good by helping the 16 year old girl who was locked in this crazy bastard s basement And of course getting herself out of this situation in which the reader found her.I am glad I finished it But I m not going to hurry to read another Ko [...]

      I have never considered Intensity among my favorite Dean Koontz books, but it is a beautiful story There is very little supernatural element to this one view spoiler my favorite part is the female elk which are portrayed as mysterious guardian angels really the only supernatural element so you can see what attracts me to Koontz stories The elk s heart shaped face was barely visible from a distance of only eight feet It s eyes, however, shone hide spoiler I love the references to several classic [...]

      Fabulous Scary Incredible heroine.Readers who liked The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo should like this The two heroines Lisbeth in Dragon Tattoo and Chyna in Intensity were similar in their actions Chyna chose to fight what seemed impossible Instead of running and trying to get away like normal people she went after him with the barest of weapons She was resilient, resourceful, brave She called it reckless caring In the beginning of the story, Chyna is trying to get away from Edgler a serial kille [...]

      Intensity lives up to its name Intense from the first page to the last, well written and masterfully suspenseful, it s one of the best books by Dean Koontz God fears me.

      Intensity More like intensely boring I started this, got not even half way through and stopped reading it to read a Heather Graham book that i finished faster and enjoyed way Yes, it was better than this long drawn out storyline It wasn t gross, didn t make me feel sick, wasn t disturbing at all like the other reviews claim Maybe it just takes to get to me I actually liked Vess as weird as that may be Well, I liked how he viewed things It was a little weird that it Chyna found him attractive D [...]

      Actual rating 4.5 stars.I have never read a book that has kept me on edge, frightened me and made me feel so triumphant The characters are incredibly created Vess is a character that scared me, not because of his murderous nature, but because his outlook on life was oddly inspiring It worried me how I could find this man, this sociopath so interesting and so right in many things that he thought He was absolutely fascinating Chyna s transcendence was portrayed so well, you really grew with her in [...]

    21. Miriam Smith on said:

      It s all in the title Have never read a book that made me feel so intense and on the edge of my seat Had to actually put it down one night, was worried I d have nightmares haha Cannot recommend this book enough Even watched the American tv series that was made I was so obsessed but unfortunately like most movies made from books lacked the quality and intensity Well worth a read you won t be disappointed.

    22. Logan Keys on said:

      I read this a long time ago but just now realized I never reviewed.This book shaped me as an author.How you might ask.Because villains don t have to be creepers with bad teeth The scariest come in a package you never expected Depraved doesn t mean on the outside they are not passable, even likable.What scares me most are bad guys gals we d let help us with our groceries Still a favorite

      I have so many books on my Kindle that were on sale or free that I haven t read yet I ve been browsing today found Intensity which I bought in 2010 Let s give it a try.My heart rate has been about 110 to 120 while reading this book Its the story of a real sicko It was close to a 5 star for me but the ending went on and on The title is perfect for this book, it was intense

    24. Diane Lynch on said:

      This book is about a serial murderer It gives the full story of the killer and his victims The killers techniques make it a horror story This was a good book Keeps you interested.

      I like scary books Stephen King is amazing Peter Straub easily induces chills I read Red Dragon where Hanibal Lecter is first introduced when I was probably too young and without my parent s permission But books don t scare me At least not until the night I started reading Intensity by Dean Koontz The main character, Chyna Shepherd, has come to Napa Valley with a friend, Laura Templeton, to visit Laura s family farm Like me, Chyna finds it difficult to fall asleep in a strange place So she is aw [...]

    26. Chris on said:

      This started out rough I had to get used to Koontz s writing style, which to me isn t as smooth a read as others But once the story got going, I was really interested in it.Chyna Shepherd is trapped in the house as the killer, Mr Vess, goes on his rampage She must deal with not only her fear of being found out, but of a lifetime of insecurities brought on by a sorry mother and a troubled childhood She must overcome these deeply rooted issues if she is to survive the next 24 hours and if she is t [...]

      I ve been reading this book for a while, mostly because I only read it at lunch Some of it though had to do with the book itself.I like the story, believe meIt s interesting The characters however, are not I didn t care for any of themif they lived, if they died, if they hurt or suffered or didn t They failed to generate any emotions in me I couldn t bring myself to care about them other than my own inward mocking at the name Chyna thinking of the WWF WWE, whatever wrestler.The thing that kept m [...]
