I took out Watchers and can't wait until I start reading it!

I'm already into Watchers and so far, I enjoy it. I like they way Koontz have the character connect with dogs in his books.

I love Koontz. I'm partial to his older novels; the newer ones have really disappointed me. I haven't read The Face or Odd Thomas yet, so maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. A few people have said Odd Thomas is up to par with his older books.
Watchers is probably my favorite.

The race is back!
Odd Thomas is definitely a good book, if you like his older stuff.
And even The Face is pretty good, compared to some of this other recent stuff.

I didn't like how the dog became Curtis' "sister-become" in "One Door Away From Heaven."

Haejin, is One Door Away From Heaven worth reading?

I thought it was pretty good. The characters are pretty loveable, in my opinion, and it's easy to sort of "connect" with them after a while. I didn't really like the scenes with Curtis and the dog (he seemed a little strange to me), but in the end I found out why I thought that. Give it a try...

Read it under his pen-name Brian Coffey. His BEST work, IMO, is Lightning. I loved Odd Thomas, and yes, I agree that it will appeal to those who prefer what I call "Classic Koontz". Boy did I go through the tissues, though. We have been passing it around the house, and each subsequent reader has taken it from a family member who is SOBBING, saying "Read it! You'll love it!"

Do you have any of his books published under his many pen-names as well as the re-prints under "Koontz"? I started collecting them when I found out that "Face of Fear" by Brian Coffey was the same book my friend was reading; "Face of Fear" by Dean Koontz. It really hooked me. There is even one book where one of the characters is listing the names at an attorney's office, and they are names that are his own pen-names. What a hoot. If you need any help finding, and you don't have it yet, I recommend The Dean Koontz Companion by Ed Gorman, Bill Munster (Editor), Martin Harry Greenberg (Editor), Edward Gorman (Editor)
