Description

They're out there.

Waiting. Watching. Unseen by normal eyes, but all too visible to Slim MacKenzie, a young man blessed-or cursed-by Twilight Eyes…

They're out there

Lurking in the darkest shadows of an eerie, moonlit carnival. Feeding their twisted needs with human suffering. And fiendishly plotting the downfall of the human race…

They're out there
But don't scream.
They'll hear you.

    I love this book~ It is fantastical, inventive, and exciting! Ever seen Frailty? Yeah, it is kinda like that. I would be cautious giving this book to someone who was mentally unstable, but in a way you can sort of see things from their perspective!! Great thriller!
  • (2/5)
    This book had a pleasantly spooky quality to it that made reading a fun little thrill; however, once finished, it was easily and quickly forgotten. In other words, this is one of those books you borrow rather than buy.

    My all-time favorite Koontz novel. I've read it twice and will probably read it again -- and again -- and again.

    It's got carnival carnies, a love story, good friends and goblins trying to wipe out humanity--nice read around halloween. This great book and would have been outstanding if only it were a bit shorter and condensed. There's no sequel that I can find, but it makes a fun read on it's own...Koontz did a great job on it.

    This is one of Koontz's earlier works and it shows. I believe I can see a glimpse of what would be later Odd Thomas, but here we have a boy who can see monsters disguised as real people and who decides to make a difference in the future of mankind. The story was a bit unrealistic, I think (or I hope!), and it just felt the book was going on for tooooooo long. Specially the 2nd part of the story, it seemed to drag to a final confrontation thar didn't really exist. Some pages I just read every other line because it didn't had anything new to the story.It could be a better book if 150 pages less.What I liked most was to learn about how carnies live in America.

    My favourite novel of all time

    I decided to re-read Twilight Eyes after nearly 20 years. Needless to say, it did not live up to the memory I had maintained in my mind. The carnival setting of the first half of the book always intrigued me in a Bradbury-esque way. However, once Koontz attempts to explain the origins of the goblins and then our two intrepid heroes infiltrate their underground lair to ultimately find the Pentagon's armageddon bunker for beasties, he loses me completely. The pace is pretty quick by Koontz's standards, but such extreme suspension of disbelief is required to accept the goblins' origin theory that you will be hard-pressed to not chuckle. Throw in the usual clunky Koontz similes and you've got an average book at best.

    In terms of Koontz novels, this one is pretty good. Although it is a long book and drags in a few places, it was mostly entertaining all the way through. The ending is left open for a sequel, which I think would be a good option for him at this point.

    It's been a while. I read this one as a teenager, but very much enjoyed the story.
  • (5/5)
    BRILLIANT! This is my all time favorite koontz book. It really makes you think?
  • (5/5)
    I was intrigued from the beginning. The plot was great, it kept me interested throughout the entire story. I highly recommend it.
  • (3/5)
    Ages of characters and premise of goblins wanting world Earth domination just to die.
  • (5/5)
    It was gripping. This second time I have read, wonderful!!
  • (5/5)
    This is my absolute favorite of all of Dean Koontz' books. I first read this about 20 years ago. The story was so intriguing to me. The hideous monsters that could appear in human form. The way the monsters fed on human misery. Great stuff. The story has stayed with me all this time. I have read this book a couple more times, and it always is great.
  • (3/5)
    Overall, not a bad read. Incidently this is my first Koontz novel and while perhaps this wasn’t the best one to start off with, it was good enough that I’ll come back for more. Starting off a bit slow, it picks up quite a bit towards the middle (towards the end of Part One) and the paces stays pretty steady through out Part 2, though slowing down a bit at the end to wrap things up. There were a few small twists that I didn’t anticipate, but overall a fairly predictable, though enjoyable book. Book left itself open for sequels (perhaps he has already written the sequel) and in fact it would be interesting to see how it turns out in the end.

    One of the first horror genre books I ever read. I was probably 13... It scared the crap out of me and I loved it!
