This being the first book I've read by Dean Koontz what a ride.
J. Getzinger
Then, I did what I've only done once before, turned the book to the first page and read it again.

I didn't feel like even Koontz felt much for his main character.

As a long time Dean Koontz fan, I can attest to the fact that he can be very hit or miss. While I wouldn't necessarily call Fear Nothing a total hit/blockbuster, it was one of the best Koontz that I have read in a while. Those familiar with Koontz, but leery of his irregularity will not be disappointed with this novel.
I won't bother going through the plot again, as so many other reviewers have done quite well. I will just say that the plot was sufficiently suspenseful to keep me turning pages and happily entertained. The characters in this book, though, are really the best parts. Christopher Snow, a man with a serious disease that makes him deathly allergic to light is not only sweet, but funny as well. His friend Bobby, the coolest of all possible surfer dudes, is hysterical and philisophical at the same time. You really won't be able to help liking these characters.
Unlike in some other novels, Koontz maintains his talent for strong description and backstory, without getting into long-winded tangents that put readers to sleep.
Overall, I say Fear Nothing was quite fun, entertaining, and a pleasure to read. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of Seize the Night, the next book in the Christoper Snow saga. I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy suspenseful reading and likable, funny characters.

This books is one of D.K's greatest, along with it's sequal, Seize the Night. I highly reccomend these novels, although you may have to heavily rely on the suspension of disbelief to get through it. The commradare between these three friends, (four, if you count the dog) is wonderfully entertaining. The writing in this book is funnier than in most of Koontz's others. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. Thats not to say anything about the suspense this book is filled with. My work performance suffered after late nights with this book. An incredible read!

Dean Koontz became my favorite author after reading my first book by him book several years ago. I have read most of his books by now, sidestepping some of his very early works, when he was using some other name.
I haven't finished reading Fear Nothing, but so far, about 2/3's of the way through, I am enjoying it very much. The surfer lingo is neat, and the hero is very easy to relate to...no, I dont have XP too. I hesitate reading all the reviews here, at this site, because I would like to see how Fear Nothing is to be resolved myself.
Koontz's previous two books, Intensity and Sole Survivor were less than great,,,which is the yardstick by which I gauge this author's novels: he is so good. Intensity had me wanting to smack Chyna for her procrastination, and Sole Survivor was so bundled up and contrived at the end that it didn't do much for me.
If you have never read Koontz before, you might want to give Fear Nothing a shot,,,then, go back and read some of his best, like Lightning, Watchers, and my favorite, Strangers...of course, there is also Twilight Eyes (a sleeper, but a great one), Phantoms, The Bad Place, Dark Rivers of the Heart, and dont' forget his minor stuff that's good too, like Darkfall and Cold Fire (which, although lacking much action, is very well balanced and contrived),,,All in all, between Koontz, Crieghton, Clancey, Cook and Clark, one could have a prety good time.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was a big fan of Dean Koontz throughout most of my teen years up till now. I first picked up a book of his when I was suspended from school for a few days and I finished that book within that time frame. The book I picked up was Dark Rivers of the Heart and it was a gripping book full of suspense and anxiety. From then on, I had read every single one of his books, loving most of them. His novels just were better suited for me, unlike Stephen Kings erratic pace and massive storyline crossovers, Dean Koontz novels followed a straight line, most of the time anyway.
I was waiting patiently when I heard about Fear Nothing coming out on paperback. I bought it the day it came out and read it in 3 days. The story was just awesome and the characters were easy to like and love. As any Dean Koontz fan knows, he loves dogs and they often become a bigger character then most people would expect. Orson, the black lab in Fear Nothing was probably the main character behind only Chris Snow. Chris's medical condition was also a unique one to me, I had never heard of it before this book (well Michael Jackson doesn't count) and it added another form of desperation for the heroes of this saga.
Another interesting thing about this book was that it was the beginning of the Apocalypse. The enemy was an unseen one, the worst kind that you could imagine. A threat of nuclear bombs and meteors are always going to be there, but what about something that changed you from within and you didn't even know it? It was a scary thought to behold and Koontz mastered the compulsive anxiety of the characters.
The pace is good, the story is good, the characters are good, and it even has a part II called Seize the Night. This is still one of my personal favorites and it is a compelling read. If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you do, it's a great book.
5 out of 5.
