reviewed 77 Shadow Street. December 26, 2011
Dean Koontz is a best-selling writer who generally, but not always, writes novels that are somewhat haunting books filled with the supernatural, or, if not supernatural, the unusual. This book is no exception. …
reviewed What the Night Knows. November 28, 2010
What the Night Knows
Approximately fifteen years ago, I was an avid Dean Koontz fan. Classics like "Watchers," and "Strangers" provided an instant mind-mesmerize where, from page one until the closing of the book's binding, …

ODD IS ON OUR SIDE
   Many of my male friends love manga (loosely translated: Japanese print comics) and anime (Japanese animated films or comics). They're always talking about graphic novels which are, I …

Sole Survivor
I often turn to Koontz when I want a deliciously sharp, satisfying read that has mystery, horror, thrill of a good chase, a possible supernatural story line and of course great characters. Sole Survivor …

Odd Thomas Dean Koontz
This reviewer was familiar with several of the works of Dean Koontz before reading Odd Thomas. That being so, it created the atmosphere that this novel would involve a great deal of the fantastic, fantasy, …

Demon Seed
Another good read by Koonz, but not really his best.

Relentless: A Novel
Somehow in my years of reading hundreds of mystery books, I had neglected to read a Dean Koontz novel.  Perhaps my love for my favorite who-dunnit heroine, Kinsey Malone, had steered me away from …
posted a Quick Tip about Demon Seed. June 21, 2010
Demon Seed
While I usually LOVE Dean Koontz, if you're interested in Dean Koontz, I would recommend steering clear of this novel. Many others that he has written are much better. Try Intensity, or Whispers or Watchers. …
reviewed Demon Seed. June 21, 2010
Demon Seed
Normally, I am an avid Dean Koontz fan.  His newer material including the Odd Thomas and Frankenstein series are incredibly interesting, so when I picked up Demon Seed, I thought that I would find …
reviewed Life Expectancy. May 21, 2010
Life Expectancy
Koontz is known for his chilling tales of horror, but as I reader I've always found him shackled to the trappings of the genre and therefore predictable, even boring.  It was a pleasant surprise …

Bestselling author Cullen "Cubby" Greenwich, having survived a traumatic experience as a child, considers himself a lucky man. He's married to the love of his life, has a six-year-old son who's …

Velocity
To begin with I should point out that this is the first Dean Koontz book I have read. I was not dissappointed and am sure that I will read a few more soon enough.       I read "Velocity" …
reviewed Life Expectancy. September 06, 2009
Life Expectancy
This is the second Koontz book that I have read. I am always hesitant at first when reading first person narratives. This was certainly the case when I first started "Life Expectancy" but my …

In Odd We Trust
It's good, I guess, for artists to take occasional chances. There is no doubt that Dean Koontz is an artist and that Odd Thomas is one of his most brilliant creations. However, I have my doubts about …
reviewed Sole Survivor. August 06, 2007
Sole Survivor
Dean Koontz is probably best known as a "horror" writer because of all the years that he went toe-to-toe with Stephen King during which the two of them seemed so easily to dominate that particular genre. …
reviewed The Husband. February 15, 2007
The Husband
I have always enjoyed his mix of suspense and a type of science fiction or fantasy for a good suspension-of-reality sort of read, and so I promptly read novel after novel end to end. I had been on a bit …
reviewed The Husband. September 16, 2006
The Husband
I still find it interesting to watch Dean Koontz shift from being a supernatural horror novelist to more of a mainstream writer. His latest, The Husband, has no real supernatural element to it at all. …
reviewed The Husband. August 11, 2006
The Husband
I finally got ahold of "The Husband" and was excited to read it. Since it came out I had so many scenarios running through my mind on what the main character might possibly do to gather 2 million dollars. …

This was my first Koontz book and I'm happy to say that I really enjoyed this one. I had to get used to his way of writing and his pace of suspense, description, and action. Once I did that I really got …
