    1. A strong and solid, horror anthology!The general rating is an average sum result of the individual ratings given to each novella and short story contained in the anthology.All stories in this anthology are written by Dean KoontzRANGE HIGHWAYS (novella)Rating: ***** ( 5 stars )…how can there be any redemption if I knowingly turn my back on evil and walk away from it?This is the story who gives title to this anthology.A man who has failed in anything that he ever tried, while his older brother h [...]

    2. Koontzland Group Read - October / November 2017Link to December 2017 Group Read Discussions: #2 out the 4 books listed - completed/event/show/A lot of short stories to follow.1. Strange Highways - in a second read, I add it was a 20 year time travel. Back into the past, alcoholic Joey(40) goes to his dad's funeral & mets Celeste(17). She is a murdered/raped spirit. He prevents her murder & corrects his 20 years of "Bad road" mistakes. At the end, (view spoiler)[Joey is the successful aut [...]

    3. Yes! A 5 for a Koontz book! I really liked this odd little story. Okay rereading for the Koontz groupI'll probably do a more extensive review after the discussion. Originally I listened to an audio which had only the "title-title":). So now I have the book from the library and while I don't think each and every story measures up to Strange Highways, which is a favorite "novella", I still like the book. I plan to try and track it down (locally) and add it to my "home library." I think I'll let th [...]

    4. Satanism, deals with the devil, time travel, dysfunctional alcoholic - really? I was confused in the beginning of the book, and by the end dissatisfied. I won't be reading any more Dean Koontz. If I want horror (which I rarely indulge in), I'll read Stephen King.

    5. I try not to give out five stars without really good reason, because in some way the book was outstanding, and this book of Koontz's short stories was outstanding and deserves the five star rating. Included are stories that deal with a bear with human intelligence (and a love for dancing), another about genetically altered rats, bigger than normal, more malevolent, and very smart, who trap a widow and her son in a farmhouse. One about a pumpkin that gives only what you deserve, as well as others [...]

    6. " Strange Highways" is a collection of short stories by Dean Koontz and also the title of the first one of the bunch, a novella really, at almost 200 pages and the only one where the author explores themes in any depth. Basically it tells the story of a man who's given the chance to change his past and save a woman's life, and it all starts at a fork in the road. Who wouldn't identify with such a premise? What if.? This novella is far the best of the collection with the rest varying from mediocr [...]

    7. This book is a compilation of short stories published at different points during Dean Koontz's career.Here is a brief synopsis and review of each short story.Strange Highways: This story starts out with the main character, Joey going back to the home town that he hasn't seen for 20 years to attend his father's funeral. This story flows very well and doesn't ever slow down, from the beginning to the end.After attending his father's funeral Joey is haunted by some of the things he has done in his [...]

    8. 2017 Reading - I found each of the stories curious and worth reading. Chase is the last short story in this volume, and the last one I completed reading this year - I found it to be excellent. A line I liked from Chase:He wanted to tell Cable to watch his language - but that would mean the end of their conversation.ha ha - I am so amused! I think this is a fun little Dean Koontz Detour. Dean doesn't write a lot of short stories, lately he has been using the novella format to promote full-length [...]

    9. This is Koontz's collection of short stories. They are all awesome and some are very funny. The best was a very short story of a girl and cats. A must read!

    10. STRANGE HIGHWAYS is Koontz's first (and only) short story collection since SOFT COME THE DRAGONS came out in 1970 when Koontz was just 25 years old. Koontz is always very hit-and-miss with me, so it's no surprise I found STRANGE HIGHWAYS a mixed bag, especially since some of these stories date back to the early 70's, when Koontz was known for writing sci-fi rather than horrorRANGE HIGHWAYS (4 stars):The book's titular novella starts things off with a bang. Koontz is a genius at using speculative [...]

    11. After reading this collection I wonder why Dean Koontz doesn't write more short stories because he's very good at it. I like his novels as well, but this collection of shorter fiction is probably my favorite Koontz book. There's probably something for everyone in this collection, as the subject matter of the stories varies. I think the title story is the best in the collection and some of the stories are better than others, but overall I would recommend this to anyone who likes short horror stor [...]

    12. Подхванах и последната новела - "Здрач на разсъмване", на чието име е кръстен сборника. Хареса ми прочетеното дотук - разнообразни истории, обхващащи почти всичко от литературата с остър сюжет - и крими, и фантастика, и хорър - бива! Браво чичо Кунц!

    13. Strange Highways:The beginning set up for this story was right up my alley It had that eerie and expectant feeling you get when you watch a good Twilight Zone episode. Joey Shannon, a lowlife alcoholic, returns to the place he grew up, a near abandoned coal mining town, to bury his recently deceased father, whom he hasn't seen in 20 years. All the while some repressed memory, of one fateful night, two decades ago keeps coming back to the surface of his mind Joey will finally get a second chance [...]

    14. This audio version is only the title story of Koontz's collection of short stories.In Strange Highways our protagonist, Joey Shannon, lives in Las Vegas. When he runs out of money to buy liquor, he gets a job as a blackjack dealer until he has enough money to supply his addiction for awhile. Doesn’t particularly sound like someone you’re going to love by the end of the story, does he? But you will… or at least I did. In between drunken stupors, Joey laments over the shambles his life has b [...]

    15. This was my first Dean Koontz read. This was mostly a good read.The short-story collection was an easy in for me to sample his work. There was 1 novella's Strange Highways and Chase, i suspect is a novellette, about 50 pages. Some of the short-stories were great and some weren't. I enjoyed the afterward on Dean Koontz's writing and his support for short-stories. The stories are very deep in Catholicism. Each story had great flow, it was easy to read, had clear descriptions, rich in page-turners, [...]

    16. This is a collection of short stories and novelettes by Dean koontz. I must say that I enjoyed every story in it, some more than others. At first, I was puzzled by the numerous mentions of the Vietnam War until I discovered that some of the stories were written in the 60's. For those looking to experience Dean Koontz as an author, but not wanting to dive directly into a lengthier book this is a great choice.

    17. This is a collection of Koontz's shorter stuff, along with a novella. It's very good. I don't think there's a clinker in the bunch.

    18. As many of you know, I'm not really a fan of Koontz's more recent work, but I've loved most of his earlier writings and this collection certainly qualifies.

    19. So much dislike. So. Much. I wrote this review ages ago and it still holds true: So, I finished Everything's Eventual and I have to say I was quite pleased, as usual, with the varied subjects andyou knowKing-ness stuff. The real problems began when I realized that if I went out and bought a new book I would be hacking into my Christmas list. If left to their own devices and not provided a detailed list my family will buy me clothes or ::::shudder:::: feel good movies on DVD. You can see the prob [...]

    20. This is Koontz's only collection of short fiction, composed of the titular novella and twelve short tales (The US edition also includes another novella, "Chase").The novella is perhaps the best of the whole bunch; mostly because it's almost 200 pages long and simply has enough time and space to provide for an interesting plot. A strange occurence offers a man a chance to change his past; it's a formulaic Koontz tale, but strong enough reading to sustain interest and keep the suspense throughout [...]

    21. Strange Highways was my first experience reading Dean Koontz. I found that I enjoyed his writing style. Strange Highways is a collection that consists of fourteen short stories. Some of the stories are definitely better than others. I began reading Strange Highways by reading the shortest of the stories in the collection first, and then working my way up to the longer stories. When you begin, don’t let the shortness of the story Kittens fool you, though. I was shocked and disturbed by that ver [...]

    22. This is a collection of short stories and novellas from Dean Koontz. Length of these stories differ from 6 pages to over a hundred pages. I believe with any collection of stories my rating will most likely be three stars. I find that there will be stories I really enjoy and some that I do not. I hope the number of stories I enjoy will be more than the ones I do not like. This was the case with this collection.This collection had stories ranging from a second chance for redemption to genetic enha [...]

    23. My father was an airborne ranger during Vietnam. And I've read a LOT of books from that era. It was VERY cool getting to read some of his stuff I hadn't seen before, especially the earliest short stories.That being said, some people don't like short stories, some people don't like Koontz, but he has such a range! Imagine that the same man who wrote Lightning also wrote Shadowfires AND the books/newsletters by Trixie Koontz. WOW, that's talentarted this re-read in August 3, 2014 with Kittens and [...]

    24. I just finished rereading this collection of short stories by Dean Koontz and it just reminds me of how much better I feel his earlier writing is. While some stories were better than others there wasn't a bad apple in the bunch. Kittens is still my fave, I have a deep need for justice and it was served here in a most disturbing way. I loved Chase, the Black Pumpkin, Trapped, Strange Highways, and Twilight of the Dawn. All so different. My least favorite was Ollie's Hands, I just found it stiflin [...]

    25. This was my first Dean Koontz novel and it may be my last. Wasn't terrible by any means but I was expecting a lot more based on the reviews and ratings I saw online. The bizarre jumps in the logic from Joey along the way were distracting and kept pulling me out of the story. I found the book way too full of cliches as well that just frustrated me and kept me from enjoying what could have been an interesting story. Had the author spent a little more time on giving PJ a more believable motive rath [...]

    26. A short story collection of mostly early Koontz ("Kittens" was originally published in 1966; the first Dean ever sold commercially, while still in college). Two short novels are included; "Strange Highways" (first published here) and "Chase" (earlier published under his psuedonym, K.R. Dwyer). I like to become as familiar as I can with an author I'm a fan of, and that includes getting to know the author's early work. I like seeing the progression of the author's craft, character and story develo [...]

    27. Read by Jeff Cummings, Strange Highway is just over six hours of listening. Typical of Dean Koontz this story is hide-under-the-covers scary stuff. The plot is intriguing. A guy is stuck in a time warp, initially bouncing back to his youth to right some wrongs. I don’t usually even purchase books less than ten hours in length, and actually purchased Strange Highway simply because it’s a Koontz. Good story.The reader is a teeny bit intense for my taste, but whatever. It’s an intense, spooky [...]

    28. Well, I didn't know what to expect since I hadn't ever read a Dean Koontz novel before, but I know I wasn't expecting this. I wasn't sure where he was going with it for a while, but liked where it went. It was a little bit predictable in that I was usually anticipating things about two chapters ahead, but he threw in a few twists at the end that had me surprised. I liked it and will probably read another of his books before it's all over. Dude has written a lot of books!

    29. That's right. No stars. Not because this is a particularly bad book, but because I'm selecting it to represent ALL Dean Koontz books. He sucks. Plain and simple. I could write better stories accidently while cleaning up a Scrabble game. This jerk can write an entire chapter on the color of the kitchen cabinets. Honestly, who's he writing to, Martha Stewart worshippers?

    30. Sorry folks, but I just don't like Koontz' writing style. Too repetitive, his characters are cardboard cutouts to whom he attributes the same speech patterns to all. I've read half a dozen of his works now and the only one that I found remotely worth the time was "Lightning."
