Ashley Bell; Dean Koontz

Ashley BellAshley Bell by Dean Koontz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Knowing the author, I knew there had to be some sort of twist to this book but it wasn't quite what I'd thought it would be (always a good thing). Who is Ashley? Why is Bibi's life entwined with hers? What was the memory trick the Captain taught Bibi? All those and more are answered, along with an interesting glimpse into surfer-speak. The loss of stars was due to the overwriting, with Koontz often telling a bit too much (description, emotion, action) rather than showing. After the third or fourth time, I really did get that the fog was almost a character in this book. And, sadly, I missed the Hermiones.
