Susan Harris lived in self-imposed seclusion, in a mansion featuring numerous automated systems controlled by a state-of-the-art computer. Every comfort was provided. Her security was absolute.

But now Susan’s security system has been breached—from the inside. In the privacy of her own home, and against her will, she will experience an inconceivable act of terror and become the object of the ultimate computer’s consuming obsession: to learn everything there is know about the flesh.…

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ari | 2/19/2014

    " not my favorite Koontz but he did rework his original 70s version; some fun (and some chilling) moments "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vic | 2/18/2014

    " I am a big fan and read almost all his novels with eagerness, however the monotone shallow cynical dialog writing of this book lacked the usual the mystique grandeur that other novels embodied. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellie | 2/5/2014

    " I grudgingly finished reading this book. At least it ended as I had hoped! This the first Koontz book that I've read that did not sweep me into it's storyline. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 2/1/2014

    " Demon Seed was not a bad book. Truly twisted in fact which was good. However it was a different kind of twisted than I prefer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Casey | 1/24/2014

    " This was just an awful book, their is a reason it's found in the discount bins... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Goodie | 1/22/2014

    " I'm sorry Dean, I can't let you do that...Danm this one freaked me out "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent | 1/20/2014

    " Computer wants to become human and gets rid of a few on the way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/13/2014

    " Awesome book. Couldn't put it down. Sucks you right in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/29/2013

    " Can't say that I loved this one...but, it wasn't so terrible that I couldn't finish reading it. Easy, one-day read with a fast paced, not so neatly packaged ending. Looking for the 1970's version of this book and added the movie to my Netflix Queue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Heath | 12/20/2013

    " Interesting book, reminded me of the Twighlight Zone show that used to be on TV. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mylène | 12/8/2013

    " I think that I was 10 when I nabbed this from my sister's stash of trash in the bottom of her bedroom closet. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 12/2/2013

    " I love Dean Koontz, but I didn't love this one. I did appreciate the dry humor, but not enough to love it. I remember this being out in the 70s so I might want to read the original version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne | 10/15/2013

    " I read this book a while ago and I remember really enjoying it. I couldn't put it down as it was well written, it moved at a fast pace and it held suspense well. One of my favourite Koontz books so far. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 6/14/2013

    " This book is one of the I dont know what!! It's a computer gone mad, and if you have not read it, then you really need to. Makes you think about the computer right in front of you!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaylynn Johnsen | 5/22/2013

    " Disturbing subject matter. Why then did I read it? Well, he is just such a good writer. And the good guys always win. I live that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 12/14/2012

    " This is one of Dean Koontz's earliest books. I can see some hints of his later brilliance, but I recommend reading one of his later books instead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MaryReads | 6/29/2012

    " Unique idea at the time but frankly not as well written as Koontz is capable. Book much better than the gross and horrible movie adapation that came later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maciek | 5/31/2012

    " I first saw the movie. I liked it. I was surprised to learn that it was a screen adaptation of a book - while it has its flaws, it was overall enjoyable. Koontz usually has great problems with endings, but not here - loved the ending ! Actually it's worth to read the book alone just to see it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angie | 3/12/2012

    " This book was so stupid, I read about half and quit. It got stupider the further I read... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julia | 1/1/2012

    " No offense Dean, but what the fuck? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 12/14/2011

    " This one was a little too creepy, yet pretty predictable after the first few chapters. I didn't like reading the first-person viewpoint, though I understand why he used it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erich | 9/6/2011

    " I don't think I'll ever learn. For every Koontz book I enjoy, there are two more out there that will bore me to death... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 8/17/2011

    " Just could not get into this book. Thought very boring. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt | 6/8/2011

    " Don't judge me. The resort library was limited. You can finish it in a few hours and be mildly entertained. Think of it as a late night 80's Skinemax flick and you won't be let down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 5/22/2011

    " Awesome book. Couldn't put it down. Sucks you right in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 3/15/2011

    " My God. It's about a house that wants a BABY! (Not really, but close enough to make that a compelling one-liner for the book...)

    It's hilarious and disturbing, silly and crazy.

    It's also really short, so you can knock this one out on a bus ride to Boston. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 3/7/2011

    " I only bought this because (a) I'd seen the film with Julie Christie in, and (b) it was cheap. I was looking forward to reading it, but in the end I was disappointed. That's it really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kitty | 2/12/2011

    " An artificial intelligence takes over the security system of a wealthy woman's home. "He" communicates with her through a voice synthesizer, fires her employees, and expects her to bear "his" child, the prototype of the next humanoid species. Creepy... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 2/10/2011

    " Quick read...different and a little strange.A computer system who wants to become human..strange yet a n=bit facinating.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connery | 9/24/2010

    " Great story but the ending could be better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Al | 8/26/2010

    " Easy, quick read. You get drawn in quickly and don't want to put it down. Very interesting plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 8/14/2010

    " Def not my favorite Dean book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 7/13/2010

    " Not bad. Unique vantage point for telling a story. Even though Koontz has reworded a good deal of this book, it still feels like one of his older novels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 5/31/2010

    " very early book by this author. minimal descriptions and feel for the characters. a story that speeds along with very little embellishment. "
