    I haven't been a big fan of Koontz' latest but that was decent, as is his Odd Thomas series. To me it seems like Koontz has been trying too hard for a cutesy, humorous style.

    I won't read any of his books if they feature a psychically gifted golden retriever.

    After Harry potter finished way back in 2007 I found a book series similar to it called Septimus heap. Its not really popular but near to my heart. I walked into a bookstore and was shocked to see that the 7th and last book was already out! Having neglected the 6th one too I picked up both. On the last on Fyre now and I realize i'll miss these characters as much as I miss the harry potter ones

    Please, please read The Shining first to prepare your psyche for Doctor Sleep. The Stand (the unabridged version if you can find it) is an AWESOME apocolyptic story that once read will need to be re-read again and again.

    My daughter is mad for the Septimus Heap books. Maybe I should read them.

    So excited, managed to download to my Galaxy tab Swan Song by Robert McCammon for only $3.03. Decided to do a re-read of this after 'hearing' chat here by some members about it. BUT, The Fall by DelToro and Hogan has latched on to me with a grip I can't break. SS will have to wait.

    I thought all three of those were enjoyable. Swan Song is set a few years earlier, but very enjoyable.

    Copy that!

    The worst part of not having read The Stand is I've had a paperback copy of the unabridged version for15 years or so.

    Oh you really are a sucker for punishment, aren't you? (I'd duck down low now before the overstuffed pillows start to fly.)
