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. ( )

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

SUMMARY: The carnival is coming to town-and it's like nothing you've ever seen.
  Hans.Michel | Sep 13, 2013 |
Là fuori nel buio è incentrato sulle vicende del giovane Slim. Il protagonista, grazie agli Occhi di Crepuscolo, riesce a vedere i demoni, creature mostruose che si celano sotto le sembianze di normali esseri umani. Benedizione, o piuttosto maledizione, questa facoltà paranormale farà sì che Slim non possa trattenersi dal combattere i demoni con ogni mezzo. Ho trovato questo romanzo piuttosto mediocre e deludente. La trama è straordinariamente banale e scialba, in particolare quando si arriva a scoprire l'origine dei demoni. In qualche modo, sembra tutto trito e ritrito, niente di nuovo o originale. Lo stile è la cosa peggiore. Non so se sia colpa del traduttore (occasionalmente trovo traduttori che riescono a rendermi i romanzi insopportabili) o sia lo stile di Koontz (questo è il primo suo libro che leggo), fatto sta che l'ho trovato piatto e noioso, per niente adatto ad un romanzo di (presunta) suspance. Sembra quasi che Koontz voglia ricalcare lo stile misurato e puntuale degli scrittori '800, ma fallisce miseramente e uccide qualunque chanche di appassionare il lettore. Per quanto mi riguarda, questo romanzo è da evitare. ( )

Epigraph
I had thought some of nature's journeymen had made men and
not made them well, for they imitated humanity so abominably

-Shakespeare
Hope is the pillar
  that holds up the world.
Hope is the dream
  of a waking man.

-Pliny the Elder
I am on the side of the unregenerate who affirm the worth of
life as an end in itself.

-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Dedication
This book is dedicated to
Tim and Serena Powers
and
Jim and Viki Blaylock
because they are
fellow toilers
in the vineyards
and because
it seems fitting
that such a strange story
should be dedicated to
strange people.
First words
That was the year they murdered our president in Dallas.
