Default Dean Koontz

Anyone here like Dean Koontz? If so, what are your favorite books by him?

Currently I'm reading Velocity which is good. I've read The Husband and Hideaway and both were excellent reads. Love his writing style.

I haven't read anything recently by him, but I did like a lot of his earlier stuff. "Fear Nothing" and it's sequel, which name escapes me, come to mind as favorites.

I haven't read him in a very long time, but I used to enjoy his books a lot. Didn't stop reading him on purpose - I have to see if he's in the library since I'm trying not to buy books for a while.

I've read lots of his books and most were bought used. After I read them, I trade them in for something else. I just checked my shelf and still have The Voice of the Night (very old!) and all of the Odd Thomas books. I liked them so much I'm not ready to trade them in!

Odd Thomas is being brought to the screen, by the way! Odd Thomas (2012) - IMDb

By far - intensity! I was too scared to put the book down

By far Watchers followed by Lightning - liked many of his earlier ones better than now, though I keep reading them Velocity, Sole Survivor, to name a couple of the later ones I liked.

I like Odd, but I don't like all the Odd books equally well. Not familiar with Anton Yelchin, but he looks sort of like I pictured him.

I love everything he does. He's also a photographer. I actually met him in NY a few years ago and he was awesome! Go Velocity!
