    I finished "By the Light of the Moon".

    This was like most of his books, very good on building suspense. I like the sense that you have no idea where the story's going, while he builds up solid likeable characters. I really liked the three main characters.

    However, I couldn't shake the feeling that I was reading something that was made to be seen on screen. At times it felt like a blocked out scene in a good movie, and it bothered me.

    Overall a very good read, though.

    I just picked up Koontz' brand new release, "Odd Thomas". I haven't started it yet, though.

    John, you can give us your horns or thumbs up or down afterwards. You know how much we follow the leader.

    Okay, I finished Odd Thomas. Very good. I highly recommend it. Not your average Koontz book, but has his wit, humor, and heart-pounding pace. I read it in 2 days.

    I also just received "The Face" and "By the Light of the Moon", which completes my Koontz collection. I now own every book he's ever written.

    I haven't read BTLOTM yet, so I'll give my review of that when I do.

    But pick up Odd Thomas - you won't be sorry.

    I have to review this thread. I believe that Watchers was one of the recommended books. Now we know that Odd Thomas got the thumbs/baby cow horns up!

    Watchers, Lightning, and Twilight Eyes are consistently the highest-rated books he's written. I recommend them all.

    And Odd Thomas definitely got the 2 cow-horns up.

    You're the first person I know who's read it. Glad to hear a good report, I'm still waiting for it to come in at the library.

    I've never read any of Koontz's books before, but today I got "One Door Away From Heaven". I'm going back to the library tomorrow to find some more.
