    Frankenstein: The Dead Town

    I just finished reading the last book in the Frankenstein series.  It was a good read and had a nice ending to the series.  I just want to say Thank God to Dean Koontz for finally finishing the novel.  I have been waiting years to find out how it all ends and I made it.  My...

    Life Expectancy

    Life Expectancy is my favorite book of his, next to Odd Thomas. If you have never read it, I would definitely recommend it. It shows his charachters' comedic genius, and they are so loveable, like always. The Odd Thomas series is also brilliant! He brings a positive new edge to...

    Just Scary Enough

    Dean Koontz has long been one of my favorite authors. He's just scary enough to give me shivers...without a side of nightmares.And unlike some other really prolific writers, Koontz' work is consistently very high quality.  He's good at his craft; descriptive without falling...

    Odd Thomas

    I really loved this series, I have heard that it is supposed to a movie out of this series but no release date has been announced. Anyway if you like Dean Koontz and want a good read try Odd Thomas series.   Andy

    My Favorite...

    Dean Koontz books are the first two in the Frankenstein series. I really enjoyed them. I couldn't put them down, and I'm beside myself, trying to be patient and wait for the third one to come out! Odd Thomas rocked my socks off, too.

    My Favourites

    I have read all of his books and I have two favourites - Strangers and Cold Fire. Loved both of them. Funny, a lot of people are talking about the Odd Thomas books and am not sure why but I didnt enjoy them as much as I usually do his books.

    The First Dean Koontz Novel I Ever Read Was Phantoms In 1983.

    Does anyone remember that one of his from way back? It scared the crap out of me and I loved every minute of it and was hooked ever since. This was way back when he used his middle initial. Dean R. Koontz. I think I might have read every thing hes ever written since then or close...

    Too Descriptive For My Tatstes Though..

    I like his books(well the few I have read) but he just is too descriptive for me.  To me it felt like there was little left to imagination but thats my opinion. I did enjoy the topics though. :)  Odd Thomas was good.

    The Watchers Book Is His Best!

    I absolutely loved this book!  Maybe the fact that I had golden retrievers at the time made me like it even more, but it was a GREAT story!  Too bad it made me nervous about going out to the corrals at night to check on the cattle and horses--I had to bring the dogs...
