Not yet. I was about to buy one of his books the other day and finally went for a Jonathan Kellermen one. Dean Koontz is on my "to read" list. I think he writes mystery/horror, am I right?

I LOVE STEPHEN KING! if you like stephen king, you will like Dean Koontz. Dean Koontz is a little less horror, and a little more thriller though. i just read (last night, LOL) By the Light of the Moon - that was really good too!

I read Dean Koontz... I like him... most of the time!

I must say I either can't put the book down or I can't get into it. I absolutely loved Door to December, Phantoms, and the Funhouse (a few others I can't remember at the moment, darn pregnancy brain!) I could not however get into By the Light of the Moon and a few other of his newer ones... I'm not sure what it is...

I must say though he is by far one of my favorites...

Well, you guys convinced me!
I'm off tomorrow to buy a Koontz book. I'm moving so I already packed all my books and now I can't find anything to read!
Any suggestions for a first read?
