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.

Cowash: Suave Strawberry, Tresseme Naturals Moisture
Lopoo: L'Oreal EverSleek
Style: Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Gel, Aussie Instant Freeze Gel, sometimes Alba
Techniques: Just use ShamWow after I put product in damp hair and crunch. Works well for me, my hair holds a good wave all day. 2nd day hair is even better.

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.
2/c Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

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

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
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.

Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

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!
One of my favorite writers. Actually named my daughter one of the names from a book of his.

Hi. I've been snooping around the forums & stumbled on this post.
I've two of his books in progress. Intensity and Darkness Under the Sun on Kindle.
Just bought City in paper.
Can't really get into the Kindle books. Hope buying City wasn't a waste too.

I could not put intensity down so I read it in one sitting when I was a teenager. Constant adrenalin. It freaked me out to no end. Then I watched the movie which doesn't do the book justice.
Reading the Odd Thomas books now. Waiting on the last one.
Watchers is not only my favorite Koontz book but one of my favorite books by anyone.

One of the things I love about Manhattan is regardless of what field they are actually working in, if you're a creative, chances are high that you will connect with another artist (it really helps to have someone to talk to who is in the same space 'dreamwise')

p.s. --sorry for the late reply
It's been years since I read one of his books but I remember enjoying them a lot.
