    Short dark and twisted

    Koontz definitely went to some creepy carnivals. Funhouse is exactly that thrilling, scary, tawdry, and twisted. It's a scream!

    The Funhouse

    This book was written early in Koontz’ career under a pen name, Owen West. It is more horror than suspense, and you very quickly figure out that the ending is not going to be a good one for some of the characters. Amy, the central character becomes pregnant, and since her boyfriend will not help her get an abortion, she dumps him and tells her mom why she needs money. Her mom, an alcoholic and religious fanatic gives her the money for an abortion while at the same time convincing Amy she is evil and a servant of the devil. Unknown to Amy, her mother had become pregnant at Amy’s. Age and was married to a carney also an abusive man. Her mother’s child was born deformed and her mother killed the child. She also feared that Amy’s unborn child might likewise be deformed. During the summer the carnival comes to town and Amy and her brother become the targets of her mother’s ex-husband who has nursed hatred for twenty plus years because of the death of his son. The story reaches a climax in the funhouse of the carnival. Very much not up to Koontz’ present work.
