The real reason I read this is in the final decision section. However, I finished it, because of the opening two pages. Crispin is a twelve-year old boy who lives on the streets of an unnamed city with his dog, Harley. I admit, I was intrigued. A little bit. Crispin has been living on the street for three years. His little sister disappeared, and he was told she went to Paris. He never sees his mother, not that he saw her much before, and his new family and servants behave oddly.
It was not my kind of story. The writing was simplistic, and never really progressed to complex sentences. That annoyed me. It was not scary at all. The spine label from my library has this a horror story. There are devil worshippers and a few hints that these devil worshippers may be more than that, with references to bygone ways of hiding from demons and other supernatural evil creatures.
But the story never gets scary. There are some good things about the story. The story itself seems well suited to the short, novella format. It has enough flashbacks to fill in the gaps of the present time. It was ok. I liked the story of Amity Onawa. Compare them with scenes of Crispin and his mother. Are they the same or different? What is the significance of the name Regina Angelorum?

The Moonlit Mind (Novella)
The Moonlit Mind is an Ebook novella by Dean Koontz released to introduce his new book, 77 Shadow Street , which is due out in hardcover at the end of December. Ten percent of the ebook is the first 3 chapters of 77 Shadow Street, which is actually better than the novella itself. You have to wonder if maybe Dean Koontz is sitting at his desk one day when the phone rings. You got any stuff you are working on just lying around?

Readers’ Advisory 1: The Moonlit Mind. Dean Koontz
I already owned a hardback edition of 77 Shadow Street when the mass-market paperback came out. At the heart of the novella is Crispin, a nine-year-old boy, who barely escapes death at the hands of his mother, Clarette, and his rich step father, Giles Gregorio. At times he encounters his parents in the city, who are still searching for him. Through a series of miracles, along with the aid of a very smart dog that he names Harley, after his younger brother, Crispin manages to survive and to become tough for his young age. In time, however, Crispin will have to return to Theron Hall and settle business. That means a final confrontation with the evil that took his brother and sister away. The place is huge and seems to be growing all the time with endless hallways and countless rooms.
