The Bad Place by Dean Koontz is one of my favorite books.

If you are a Dean Koontz fan, do you have a favorite?

I'm looking for my next read.




The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

It's been a while, but I remember Cold Fire and Lightning being good.

It's been several years since I've read his books, but at one point I was a big fan. I've probably read at least a dozen of his novels, and even got him to sign a copy of Intensity at a book signing.

A few I remember liking was Hideaway, Cold Fire, and Fear Nothing. There was another one I really liked, but I can't remember the name, and I don't think I can describe it without spoilers. I'll have to see if I can figure out which one it was.

I haven't read the book, but I enjoyed the movie Odd Thomas on Netflix.

FWIW, I gave up on his books when I realized they all told the same basic story.

Watchers was one of his first and is still my favorite. If you're a dog lover then it's a must read.

Fear Nothing and Seize the Night are two of my favorites. There was supposed to be a third book in this series, but I don't think it was ever written. Or if it was, I missed it.

This is my vote as well. Just love that book - though it is a bit dated now.

That would also be my vote for worst movie adapted from a book. The protagonist goes from being a Vietnam vet - to being a kid played by Cory Haim.

Phantoms. Fantastic book.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

I enjoyed the first few Odd Thomas books, Watchers and Lightning. I also thought The Good Guy was a good read.

Phantoms for being actually scary when I read it way back when.

Lightning and Watchers as second mention.

I also liked lightning a lot. One I have not seen mentioned that was good is The Bad Place.

Dark Rivers Of The Heart was good but pretty messed up.
