Koontz has woven the tails of a super intelligent handicapped girl living with a drug addled Mother and evil Step Father, a down on her luck woman living next door with her eccentric Aunt Gen, a hardened and grief stricken PI and his elegant client and of course, a shape shifting Alien Hell bent on his mission to heal the World.
Koontz weaves this tail with his inimitable descriptive prose that at times resembles poetry. His enduring love for his late Golden Retriever manifests itself as a recurring theme of the spiritual bond between Persons and their Dogs.By being slightly less intelligent than Humans, a dog still possesses an Innocence that allows them to recognize the Playful Presence of our Creator.
All of this provides a back drop for an exciting battle between Good and Evil. I found it to be equally as thrilling even though this was the second time that I have read this novel. I truly recommend choosing this for an enjoyable experience.
P. S. Although I am an unconditional fan of Dean Koontz and everything that I have had the pleasure to read that he has written, my all time favorite Dean Koont novel is still "Watchers"!

Not the first time I'e read From the Corner of His Eye, yet as with the first, it is a captivating, engrossing, page-turning joy to read.

The characters are people you'd like to call friends - or at least the "good guys" are. His antagonist is written in such a way that you journey through his perception of the world and himself, showing what a warped view the "bad guys" truly have. And the journey is one in which you are at once engaged in the story, and awestruck by how Koontz brought together this interwoven world. As a writer of many areas myself (academic, fiction, nonfiction) I am always in deep respect of Koontz's storytelling, but this one in particular is impressive.

This is a thinker's book, but it's entertaining. It's a suspense-filled journey, with a heartwarming narrative at it's heart. It's a great way to spend as many hours as it takes you to read, but as I'm proof, it's equally magnetic in drawing you to return time and again. I always wait a year or two, but I'm always surprised and come away with something new.

I think you'll enjoy the journey within these pages... and remember, He's always watching, from the corner of His eye.

A book that keeps me nailed down in a chair must get 5 stars! The best aspects first: the characterization is excellent, the story has many twists and turns, you cannot guess at all what will happen next, and it was easy to differentiate between the characters. This latter aspect is a problem I sometimes have when there are many important characters in a book -- on a Kindle it is not so easy to page back and find out who is "Otto" or "Sarah" -- as an example. (Maybe it's because his characters have such incredibly strange names and surnames in this book!)

But as happens sometimes in such tales, Dean Koontz created a villain so nastily clever and devious that in the end his villain outfoxed Mr Koontz himself! :-) So, in order to get rid of him -- which no police officer of any description would have been able to do -- Mr Koontz, in a way of speaking, pulls a rabbit out of a hat ... (Oops, Mr Koontz!) Also, a fault of both King and Koontz, Dean Koontz has a tendency to ramble on and on sometimes, so much so that the author intrudes upon his own story. So yes, I did skip some of these rambles ... They were extraneous to the riveting tale.

I've read many Koontz novels and for me he has always been a "hit or miss" author. Sometimes very good, sometimes not so good. The first time I read this book I honestly thought to myself that someone ELSE wrote it and used Koontz's name. Not that I had any idea how anyone could get AWAY with such a thing, mind you. It's just that I thought the book was so over-the-top EXCELLENT that I couldn't believe Dean Koontz had written it. Since then, however, Mr. Koontz has had several novels that, in my humble opinion, really knocked it out of the park - so he has indeed proven himself to be capable of outstanding writing. From the Corner of His Eye, however, will always remain my favorite. Not only have I recommended it to every reader I know, but I've read it myself - in its entirety - at least 5 times. For me, this book has it all: suspense, intrigue, excitement, and tremendous heart. Pulls every emotion from extreme anger to utter despair. Had me laughing out loud in places and bawling my eyes out in others. Incredible characters and every last little loose end and detail wrapped up at the end. An outstanding work of art here, folks - and a truly entertaining read. Well done, Mr. Koontz, well done.

I don't know exactly know what to say about this book! It has left me in awe. I is one of the best books I've read lately. I just loved it. It is one of those they hate to end. I'll read it again. The characters are so alive that you find yourself becoming one of them. CURTIS is running from creatures who want to destroy our world. CURTIS has been sent to save us and they chase across the country. Then the FBI gets involved because they are trying to find the drug cartels. CURTIS has to keep moving so they don't catch him. THere are so many people in this story that I could never do it justice. I just say if you're a Dean Koontz fan and you haven't read it you're missing one of his best. It leaves you feeling good and gives you hope for our future. He is a master WITH words. Sometimes I have to look up the meaning. so I have. increased my vocabulary. Can't wait to start his next book. I hope this makes sense.
