Am a long haul truck driver, and just recently finished listening to this book. I had listened to Seize the Night last year, and was wondering why some part didnt make sense.
After listening to this I realized it is the first book of a series. I was so enthrawled with the book I couldnt wait to get away from the shipping dock so I could head down the road to finish listening to this book.
A must listen for all Dean Koontz fans.
Audible Please Please Please get Seize the Night. I really want to listen to both books back to back.

Several years ago I had the pleasure of listening to "Fear Nothing" on cassette. At the time it was my first introduction to Dean Koontz. I was hooked immediately! Since that time I've gone through every Dean Koontz story that Audible has made available. Some have been good. Some have been bad (i.e. "The Taking").
"Fear Nothing", and its sequel "Seize The Night", are by far the best stories that Koontz has ever produced! I'm glad to see that "Fear Nothing" has finally made it to Audible! The characters are well developed. The settings are incredibly detailed and compelling. The narration is wonderful! And Koontz does an amazing job of leading you just far enough that your imagination runs away with you, providing just enough hints at what is really going on to lead your mind on some pretty amazing journeys. In the end some of the truth is revealed, but much is left to the sequel (which is every bit as good!). PLEASE listen to this book. You will not be disappointed! And Audible, PLEASE get "Seize The Night"!
Note: "Fear Nothing" and "Seize the Night" are the first two books in what Koontz has promised will be a trilogy. The final book in the series, "Ride the Storm", was originally promised two years ago. Koontz has said, in several interviews, that the story is half done but is turning into a magnum opus. Here's to hoping it comes out soon!

Koontz creates a sinister moonlit world to which Chris Snow, the teller of this story, is perpetually condemned due to a rare skin condition which means that the light which he so longs for, would in time kill him.
But that is just the start of it ... something fantastical has been going on at the old abandoned army base just outside town, things that both thrill, and terrify. Chris, the hunger of curiosity insatiable, must find out what is happening, and worst of all, what caused it.
As usual Dean Koontz's character development, narrative progression and an uncanny ability to describe nocturnal beauty, plunges the reader directly into the romance of what Chris Snow sees as he leads his quazi-vampire life. All acts are justified and flow liquidly throughout the tidal motion of this book, however, as with life, this tale does not draw to a firm conclusion, possibly a flaw in Koontz's books. Closure seems hard for him to find. This may be that there are very few authors that can suspend reality so completely, yet make it almost plausible, but when you turn off the story, your left with a yearning, a feeling of loss for that world. A sign of a good book or a run away train which the author just has not got the steam to keep up with?

When I first started to listen to this I couldn't get into it so I listened to something else and came back to it . I'm glad I did. Anyone who has listened to 'Marley and Me' narrated by the author John Grogan will know its sometimes hard to listen to a nasal American accent and the narrator of this sounds similar in tone. The book however is thrilling and certainly chilling . Without giving away too much of the plot , The main character of the book is a sufferer of a condition called XP which makes him ultra sensitive to light.Exposure to light will result in cancers quickly followed by painfull death , so it's no surprise that he chooses to sleep by day and live his life by night. The sleepy town in which he lives , Moonlight Bay , has cruelly given him the name of 'the night crawler'and to some he's just someone to pick on . He does have friends though like his old surfer pal Bobby and his gal pal Sasha . Things start to get weird on the night his father dies and appologises for leaving him his legacy on his death bed.What does it mean ? And why does his fathers body get kidnapped and replaced by that of a tramp for the cremation.What is wrong with the animal population of Moonlight Bay and is our mans dog Orson as smart as he acts? A thrilling listen with some genuine skin crawling caracters . highly recommeded .
