    I didn't like Odd Hours as much. Too much left undone at the end.

    Yes, there are 5 in print now, Book 5: "In Odd We Trust" (released June 24th) serves as a prequel to the first Odd Thomas novel. Then Book 6 will be the last one.

    My favorite Dean Koontz book is The Husband. It was so good I finished it the day I got it, and then I handed it to my mother.

    Re: Dean Koontz

    I just finished The Darkest Evening of the Year, and I have to say I was thoroughly underwhelmed. Has anyone else read it?

    I love dogs as much as the next animal lover, but a whole book devoted to saintly Golden Retrievers was just a bit hokey to me. I think the problem was that the human characters didn't have much life because he devoted so much time to describing the doggies in minute detail. I remember another book of his (Watchers?) had a dog as a main character and I liked it very much.

    I do admire the fact that he managed to get a lot of information about the evils of puppy mills in this book.

    It's finally here - the 3rd Frankenstein book is set to be released on July 28th! I've already started to re-read the first 2 to get up to speed again.

    My favorite Koontz book is Lightning. Great book, if anyone hasn't read it I highly recommend it.
    I know this is a really old thread and post but I totally agree!

    I always thought this book was so compelling and would make a fantastic movie.

    Re: Dean Koontz

    My favorite Koontz books, which I've reread countless times, are Lightning, Night Chills, Intensity, Whispers, and The Servants of Twilight.

    Also really like Strangers, Watchers, Midnight, the Face of Fear and Cold Fire.

    The Bad Place is good but it's so long I don't read it as often as the others.
