    Breathless, aptly titled

    As with all of Dean Koontz stories, Breathless is riveting. There are stories within the story with the different characters all eventually intertwining, however, there are two sub stories which I cannot understand what purpose they served in the whole story, especially Henry Rouvroy. Perhaps it was because he had worked for the government and they knew what the future held regarding the wondrous new creatures discovered. Then Tom Bigger. All that is revealed with his character in connection to the plot is that he witnessed the "creation" of the new marvellous beings, but that is not explained until the very conclusion of the story. Then there was Lidden Wallace the Lawyer. I struggled to find the connection between these three men and the plot of the story upon concluding the book, however, with further contemplation these three men's part in the story seem to be to relate that even when something marvellously wonderful happens in the world not all people will respond to the wonder with awe and kind intrigue but will feel an onerous threat. I would have liked the story to expand more towards the end as opposed to suddenly concluding. I say suddenly because even though Koontz cohesively and sufficiently ties up all the characters for the conclusion to finish the story, all the sub stories became very short as the story drew to what I describe as an abrupt end. I was left wanting more. Knowing more exact details as to what and why certain things happened as opposed to surmising. This is however, the art of Dean Koontz, a master story teller.
