Innocence by Dean Koontz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I haven't decided if I like this book yet, although it is a sweet love story. Apparently merely looking at Addison's eyes and the eyes of those like him incites people to violence. The midwife tried to kill Addison when he was born. His Mother made several attempts on his life, that she regretted and didn't go through with but when he was 8 she sent him away and killed herself. In the city he found one like him who he called "Father" and they lived in the tunnels beneath the city only coming out at night when everyone else was asleep or during extremely stormy weather when most people would be indoors (My question is why didn't the buy some sunglasses/tinted glasses).
After his "Fathers" death he was alone until he meet the Goth Girl (who had the brains to invest in tinted contact lenses), who is being hunted by her Father's murderer. Addison attempts to help her and is thrilled when she offers him first friendship and then love. To his amazement he discovers that she is "like" him.
What starts out as a simple expose the murderer plot soon evolves into a mystical ending of the world with only Addison and those like him surviving.
