Book: From the Corner of His Eye by Dean Koontz

Filed under: Books — Tags: , , — krishnafromtoronto @ 8:35 pm

That familiar Koontz let-down again! He starts the story admirably and when I read of the Junior and Naomi episode, I saw the promise of a start of another wonderful story from this gifted writer. It takes off fully later, with Bartholomew and Angel, and their entwined stories. In spite of the attempts to create the 60’s and 70’s ambience merely by relating historical events of each year (a method Koontz has used before) it picks up pace… And then crashes totally to the ground with weak explanations and even weaker ending. It is as if the author went into a muddle about how to end it and wrote the first
thing that came to his mind. And to quote Quantum physics in support of the conclusions… was a bit too much for me! A really bizarre ending to a promising start makes for a mediocre novel .

I would give it a 4/10
