Dean Koontz had been a staple in my library since I was a tween, so I’ve never been disappointed with this writing. I'm now back to it and happy to make it a priority. Dean Koontz has always been an interesting writer for me. I have no idea whether his writing has evolved so much or if this book hit me at the 'right' time but it terrified me more than any other book I have read. I kept waiting for the end of the scarey part that comes right before the resolution, it seemed to go on and on. Like a roller coaster that I jumped on and couldn't jump off until the end.

In one of the most dazzling books of his celebrated career, Dean Koontz delivers a masterwork of page-turning suspense that surpasses even his own inimitable reputation as a chronicler of our worst fears—and best dreams. In The Taking he tells the story of a community cut off from a world under siege, and the terrifying battle for survival waged by a young couple and their neighbors as familiar streets become fog-shrouded death traps. Gripping, heartbreaking, and triumphant in the face of mankind’s darkest hour, here is a small-town slice-of-doomsday thriller that strikes to the core of each of us to ask: What would you do in the midst of The Taking.On the morning that will mark the end of the world they have known, Molly and Niel Sloan awaken to the drumbeat of rain on their roof. It has haunted their sleep, invaded their dreams, and now they rise to find a luminous silvery downpour drenching their small California mountain town. A strange scent hangs faintly in the air, and the young couple cannot shake the sense of something wrong.As hours pass and the rain continues to fall, Molly and Niel listen to disturbing news of extreme weather phenomena across the globe. Before evening, their little town loses television and radio reception. Then telephone and the Internet are gone. With the ceaseless rain now comes an obscuring fog that transforms the once-friendly village into a ghostly labyrinth. By nightfall the Sloans have gathered with some of their neighbors to deal with community damage...but also because they feel the need to band together against some unknown threat, some enemy they cannot identify or even imagine. In the night, strange noises arise, and at a distance, in the rain and the mist, mysterious lights are seen drifting among the trees. The rain diminishes with the dawn, but a moody gray-purple twilight prevails. Soon Molly, Niel, and their small band of friends will be forced to draw on reserves of strength, courage, and humanity they never knew they had. For within the misty gloom they will encounter something that reveals in a terrifying instant what is happening to their world—something that is hunting them with ruthless efficiency. Epic in scope, searingly intimate and immediate in perspective, The Taking is an adventure story like no other, a relentless roller-coaster read that brings apocalypse to Main Street and showcases the talents of one of our most original and mesmerizing novelists at the pinnacle of his powers.From the Hardcover edition.

I love this book. I first read it back in 2008 and I was scared for weeks after. Years later, in 2016, I purchased the book and read it again. Just as scary and just as good as I remember. There are twists and turns, and plenty of scary situations right from the beginning. Each time I've read this, it is so hard to put down, even the second time when I kind of remembered what was going to happen. I recommend this book for anyone who likes horror novels with a little sci-fi as well. Plus, this book really made me contemplate what I would do if this situation happened to me. I like when a book can do that.

Not the best Koontz book I have read-while , yes the suspense is there, but the descriptions are too long--really good but too detailed and LONG. So good that you find yourself being suffocated by the humidity and plants, mold, etc growing all around. Unfortunately, this is one of Koontz books where he just decides to end the book and it is over just like that. It does have lots of horror so be prepared and he wraps it up quickly with a good ending.

I had taken a 'break' from reading. I'm now back to it and happy to make it a priority. Dean Koontz has always been an interesting writer for me. I have no idea whether his writing has evolved so much or if this book hit me at the 'right' time but it terrified me more than any other book I have read. I kept waiting for the end of the scarey part that comes right before the resolution, it seemed to go on and on. Like a roller coaster that I jumped on and couldn't jump off until the end. I'm too old for this... WAIT! No I'm not.

I loved this book! It has gone down as one of my favorites! Koontz captured my attention immediately. I felt as though I was actually there from the beginning to the end. I felt the fear, the curiosity, the despair, and all of the other emotions the characters must have felt. It took my mind for quite a ride with the anticipation, concern, and description. It was scary in its own right, but I felt such a complete feeling at the end of this book.
I am the type of person who gets an adrenaline rush from nightmares. Once they are over, I am relieved, but I would not change the dreams I had. This was one of those sort of experiences. I felt like it was one of those long, scary, end-of-the-world type of dreams that is brilliant in its own right.

After this book, I will always look at rain and the San Bernardino mountains in a different light and with a memory of one of my favorite stories.

Some people are giving one star ratings, and I've noticed many of them failed to finish the book. This tells me that simple minds may not be intrigued by the complex and implausible situation in the plot. If you like simple, one-track books, you may not like this one, but if you like an intriguing and other worldly experience, I highly recommend it.

I saw such beauty in most of the story, even in the horror of it all. I began reading with an open mind, and I felt like a better person somehow after finishing it. I felt closer to God, whether or not that's what Koontz intended.

I got sucked into this book. Koontz weaved a tremendous tale of things from other worlds and just-as-mysterious things from this one. And various chapters I thought he was borrowing from over done genres, until I realized his book really creates an interesting new genre. If you enjoy anything apocalyptic, you will enjoy this work.

Dean Koontz never ceases to amaze me. I've had this book for years and wanted to read it but forgot I had it until we have just moved into a new home. So I put the book on my kindle and read. This book is to me an affirmation of my beliefs .... but hopefully not this scary!!! I'd read this book slowly to not miss Mr. Dean Koontz's meanings. Please enjoy your reading this book and don't read it before bed!!! Lol

A nightmare falls on the world like no one has ever imagined .
Molly and her husband Neil have but only one crusade , to rescue the children everywhere , flowers with no malice completely pure that are actually protecting them without really understanding that is HOPE what makes them reigned over this unspeakable evil. The triumph of the spirit.
SPOILERS. This book started very well with a bizarre rainstorm, unexplainable fear, and nature apparently gone askew. Then, when an alien invasion is revealed and it seems the Earth we know will not be seen again, it's both riveting and depressing, even though I hung on because I have never know a Koontz novel to end unhappily. But when it's finally explained...um, seriously? Armageddon??! Straight out of the Bible, complete with Rapture? Really not an ending I was hoping for. I hope that Koontz doesn't pull this stunt again, because I really don't want to wreck my Kindle by throwing it across the room.
