What an incredible book! I've enjoyed reading Koontz's matieral for the past 12 years but haven't enjoyed a book by him this much since Intensity.
For those who like the supernatural thrillers with a solid plot and funny characters this book is worth the read. I finished it in a couple of weeks (I'm a slow reader) and I'm getting ready to start Seize the Night which is the second book to "Fear Nothing". This is the first time (that I can remember) Koontz using the same characters for two books.
I'm a Koontz fan as well, have you read "Odd Thomas?" I absolutly loved that book. Odd Thomas sees the dead and helps some of them move on, I know what your thinking sounds like "The Sixth Sense." But its way different that that story. Fell in love with the main characters, I think I may have even teared up a little at the end. The plot twist to close the book is totaly unexpected. Koontz also wrote a sequal to this book using the same characters called "Forever Odd." I've read it as well but was a little dissapointed. It was still a good read but it doesnt hold a candle to the first.
Also I just finnished "Cell" by Stephen King, great book. I love world destruction or apocalyptic stories. Great read.
I'm currently reading "Post Office" by Charles Bukowski. as soon as I finish that I'm going to attempt to tackle the "Dark Tower" series by Stephen King. My girlfriend just finished the last book and said it was the best series shed ever read. Many of my friends have read it as well and say its awsome.
I've never read Koontz before, but I saw "Odd Thomas" and grabbed it from the recommendation here.
Totally awesome book. Thats one I'll read over and over. Great read, cool ending.
I went to the bookstore to look for the sequel and it listed "Forever Odd" and "Brother Odd" as not being released until this fall.
Nevermind, it was the paperback thats available this fall.
I'll probably read the Koontz book Cap recommended next.
Any other Koontz that are really good?
I was looking at "Velocity", any comments on that one?
