    I've read the companion, but I don't own it.

    I have a couple of books written by "R. K. Dwyer" (one of his pen-names), but the rest are reprints under his real name.

    My wife is finishing up "Out of the Corner of His Eye" right now. I think I'll recommend Odd Thomas to her next - that was a good book.

    I love Dean Koontz. I just finished Odd Thomas, and I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one sobbing.

    My absolute favorite Koontz book is Twilight Eyes (actually my all-time favorite book, tied with The Stand), but you can't find it around much any more. It was the first Koontz book I made my wife read, and she actually cried while reading it.

    I just ordered Twilight Eyes. Can't wait to read it.

    It's by far my favorite Koontz book, as I've mentioned. Do tell what you thought of it.

    At one point during the book, my wife actually cried. She's NEVER cried reading a book before.

    CableJockey, I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it but, could you briefly PM me what Twilight Eyes is about? Just a tiny taste please.

    I'm not cablejockey, but it's about a young man who is running from the law and finds himself joining the carnival, and his "twilight eyes".

    I'm on about page 375 of "The Face", and I'm still not digging it. Should I keep on going (there's like 630 pages)? I think part of the reason I'm not getting into it is because the narrator just isn't any good (which makes a HUGE difference when listening to books). What do y'all think? I have a bunch of other good books I want to start on...

    Eldee, for what it's worth, I thought it was great and I had not been a fan
