This book got me hooked onto the whole james patterson, dean koontz crime thriller fast paced genre. it is a phenomenal story of a woman who in short, cannot remember a thing about her life and you jump into the moment she starts to remember things. helped by her doctor and cursed by her memories of the past the house of thunder is full of twists and turns. unpresedented twists and turns believe me! the story becomes a bit skewed and i guess you could say boring around a third of the way in because you don't really see where the story is going and then BAM it hits you and if you, like me can't put down a good book, get the red bull ready and prepare to stay up for the night, i was generally shocked the way the book turned out :D i am now hoping i have not ruined the book for someone by raising their expectations and looking into the story too much. If you like Dean Koontz then you should deffinatly read his frankenstien trilogy they are class and do mary shelly justice believe me :D
