Deeply Odd (2013)
language
English
series
3.9 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: The story itself was wonderful. The actual parts of the book needed to sufficiently draw the reader in, keep them engrossed and emotionally involved until the end were well written and enjoyed. The problem I had was the sidetracked thoughts that the character droned on and on abo...

review 1: While I dearly love the character of Odd Thomas and have given high ratings to the first 4 books in the series, this one fell short just a bit. For me, Koontz spent too much time throughout the story -- in particular the first half of the book -- in detailed description of the se...
The City (2014)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: What started out as an interesting book with a promising storyline slowly turned into a long-winded novel with a climax so subtle that I was not only left wanting but also confused. I typically don't succumb to novels of mass production or to authors who have regularly scheduled ...
The Moonlit Mind (2011)

English

review 1: I think I liked this so much because it recalled to mind some of the fantasies I loved as a child. Despite the obvious horror and depravity, and perverted sexual overtones, there was also a feeling of innocence and child-like magic. A feeling that it didn't really matter exactly ...

English

review 1: This was my second Dean Koontz book, both short stories. This was the best one.Odd Thomas, and his girlfriends (both seemingly well adept in the "po" section of the dictionary) straddle their lives between that of the paranormal and the normal life of mediocrity. A fry cook by oc...

review 1: I have read some Dean Koontz books that I really enjoyed. And this was one of them - up until the last few pages. Is it just me, or did it seem as though Mr. Koontz got bored with writing this and just stop? Nothing was resolved, nothing was explained, nothing was....well, jus...

review 1: Listened to this audiobook on the way home from Portland. Overall, it was decent. The writing style of Dean Koontz is very readable and engaging, so it's not like its a struggle to get through the story. The main character, Bo, is pretty likeable, though the rest of the character...

review 1: This was my first Kindle Short download. I've read several, though not all, of the Odd Thomas series, so this prequel was a nice reminder of Oddie's paranormal abilities. I especially like the cameo appearances by Elvis Presley. Most of all, I like the way Koontz mixes humor and ...

review 1: Fairly average. I love the Odd Thomas books, but I wasn't as impressed by the graphic novels. I grabbed the e-books of these not even knowing they were graphic novels...otherwise I never would have bothered. The stories are quick to read and I suppose the plots are interesting...

review 1: I thoroughly enjoy the character of Odd Thomas. As always, I get caught up in the dialogue. Below is one of my favorite passages."Yet the human heart is disheartened by the most unreasonable self-judgments, because even when we take on giants, we too often confuse failure with fa...

review 1: Odd Thomas is fleeing the terrors of Harmony Corner in Koontz's previous volume of the eponymous series: Odd Interlude. Travelling with him are an idiosyncratic entourage: the enigmatic Annamaria who appears to be a heavily pregnant young lady, golden retriever Raphael and ghost...
I, Trixie, Who is Dog (2009)
language
English

review 1: A tribute to the family dog, and a fun read for puppy loving children. The language was at times awkward, and other times flowed. It attempted at times to be lyrical, then would fail. But the illustrations were smart and funny and my daughter loved pointing out the dog on each pa...

review 1: of the first three of Koontz's early works this is so far my favorite. it was almost like The Truman Show for sci-fi fans thirty years early. this also has the first of what will eventually become a Koontz staple; the wonderfully pure evil baddie ( think of this one as a prototyp...
