    Inhaltsangabe

    He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen.

    She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found.

    But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

    In Innocence, number-one New York Times best-selling author Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with listeners forever.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Laced with fantastical mysticism, it’s an allegory of nonviolence, acceptance and love in the face of adversity. . . . The narrative is intense, with an old-fashioned ominousness and artistically crafted descriptions. . . . An optimistic and unexpected conclusion [mirrors] his theme. Something different this way comes from Mr. Koontz’s imagination. Enjoy." ( Kirkus Reviews)
    "Entrancing . . . as speedy a chase-thriller as any Koontz . . . has ever constructed. Written in Koontz’ late mellifluent and reflective manner . . . [ Innocence is] fueled by deep disgust with the world’s evils [and] hope for redemption" ( Booklist, starred review)
    "[An] imaginative, mystical thriller from bestseller Koontz . . . This is the most satisfying Koontz standalone in a while" ( Publishers Weekly)

    So là là

    Not as good as hoped. Story did not resonate with me and is far from convincing. Lately, I feel Koontz is preaching in his books how we should behave in order to be “good people”. Takes all the fun out of his stories.

    Beautiful

    The story is narrated by the main character, a young man by the name of Addison Goodheart, who has been forced to live underground of a large city in the American north east, due to his self-discribed horrific looks, that would cause violent rage in other people. In contrast to his outward appearence, Addison is of an amazingly loving, forgiving, curious and highly perceptive heart and mind. He can also perceive things that normal eyes cannot see.
    One night during his supply runs above ground, Addison meets a girl who will change his world. The two have to face each others fears and longings, and an evil foe.

    This novel, and especially this audio version of it, is outstanding. It's full of beautiful prose and contemplation, on good and evil, beauty and uglyness, society, and the perception of reality, without being preachy or political.

    MacLeod Andrews' voice and narration couldn't have been more sensible, intuitive and beautiful to read this wonderful book.
