A great read
I wasn't too impressed when I started reading this book as the first couple of hundred pages seemed to go nowhere, but soon enough I got hooked. It is one of those books that you can't put down and when you do, all you can think about is what will happen next. A very entertaining plot and a satisfying ending. I'm 14 now, but when I first read it I was 12, so it is enjoyable for even younger readers, but older readers will too be enthralled.

False Memory
In the beginning I really enjoyed reading the book, but then I started to get weary and tedious. It was stretched out and I almost begin to skip pages in order to get to the plot. Overall the reading was good.

ok, i guess.
My opinion differs from the others on here.
I thought it was very slow starting up. Its an ok book. But after over 700 pages I was glad it was over. koontz is very good at being descriptive but overdoes it here every chance he gets.

boring
I found it extremely boring, he drones on and on with his descriptions and goes to far with the "witty banter" between characters. I liked the story line and plot, but was bored silly with the filler. This is my first Koontz book, so I am hoping this isn't his norm. I will try one more just to give him another chance.

Descriptive much?
Dean Koontz is too descriptive. nuff said. Good book, good plot, too much in between. Same with all his others books, like Seize the Night, which was horrible.

R. Stinson
False Memory is one of the best Dean Koontz books. It takes you down a road and twists into a deep plot that no one could predict. I am an avid reader and this is one of the best books I have ever experienced. You will not be able to put it down because the characters become a part of your life. It deals with how easily a mind can be manipulated and how simply someone can control you without your knowledge. It does get a little grisly but is perfect for conveying real truths. Koontz ties in a number of modern, current issues and people which only enhances the realisticness of it. I highly recommend this book.

Don't be misled by the title of the book. Very little of the book deals with autophobia. I was hoping to read about this persons autophobia and what happens to them over time but it's just a small set-up for the main plot line of the book. It wasn't what I was expecting when I bought the book and I was a little disappointed.
