Ever since high school, I’ve had heard Dean Koontz’ name was one of the most amazing writer in the world but I’ve never read any of his books until last year. I was skimming title after tiles of novels in a local bookstore when I stumbled upon this novel called “From the corner of his eye.” My first...
This is a wonderful, wondrous novel full of tragedy and triumph and a twisted villain that only Dean Koontz or Stephen King could dream up. This is one of my favorites by D.K. just when you think he couldn't get any better he goes and surprises you.
Still updating my old reads. Ugh, what a tedious task. I read this many years ago for All About Romance. The review is archived HERE .
This one grew on me, but wasn't my favorite. I'll have to read another Koontz to see if his other books appeal to me a little more.
