As a longtime Dean Koontz reader who left for a while in search of other authors, but always with the understanding that I'd return, I found Midnight Mind to be a winning combination of the Koontz I'd known from old and a fresher, more daring author who has openly accepted the supernatural world his previous books would always seem to skirt around. I've been buying up a lot of the audiobooks of His I'd once read back in the day and, TBPH, was unaware of this release until this morning (seeing it advertised on the personal interest section of Audibles listings).
The narrator was sublime in His reading who made the story, characters and place intensely vivid.
This is the first (proper) review I've written for a Book which has definitely fired my imagination and reminded Me why I started reading Dean Koontz in the first place. As well as being the inventive I need to properly check back on His entire bibliography.
This is a somewhat short Koontz novel and it lacks the twists and surprises of most Koontz. The development of the two main characters and dog are quite good, but there is not much development of the minor characters and virtually none for the key antagonist (very unusual for Koontz). The story setup and protagonist character motivation was interesting, but everything happens so fast it did not get the satisfaction I almost always get from Koontz. If you really like Koontz this definitely worth the time, just don’t expect the full Koontz experience. The narration was slightly monotonous and seemed to be in a scary story around the campfire tone, which was not bad, but did not add much.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Definitely left me wanting more but still wrapped up the story. Very interesting and as someone described it as "Koontz-lite".
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
A bit shocked and wanted a sequel or for it to continue!
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Performance was good. Liked... nothing I could pinpoint of disliking!
Do you think The Moonlit Mind needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes! I feel they could expand on the story... it's never over till the fat lady sings right?
Any additional comments?
