Bartholomew Lampion is blinded at the age of three, when surgeons reluctantly remove his eyes to save him from a fast-spreading cancer, but although eyeless, Barty regains his sight when he is thirteen. This sudden ascent from a decade of darkness into the glory of light is not brought about by the hands of a holy healer. No celestial trumpets announce the restoration of his vision, just as none announced his birth. A rollercoaster has something to do with his recovery, as does a seagull. And you cannot discount the importance of Barty's profound desire to make his mother proud of him before she dies. The first time she died was the day Barty was born : January 6, 1965

Dean Koontz explores our deepest fears and most transcendent aspirations in a spellbinding story. It is a unique tour de force from the master storyteller , rich in triumph and tragedy, joy and terror, love, hate and profound meaning, and played out by the most unforgettable cast of characters he has yet created.

I don't think I've read a Dean Koontz book that I didn't enjoy and this one is no exception. Not one of his best but certainly worth the read.
