Other Koontz Favorites

BTW if you are unfamilliar with Mr. Koontz, but would like to read more work by him I reccomend, The Strangers, Mr. Murder, The Frankenstien trilogy ( which puts a cool twist on the old favorite) or Velocity.

By the light of the.............. arbitrary character

To me Jill was pretty much a weak character, it seems that the only reason she was there was so Dylan would have someone else to interact with( more so than he could with Shep). Her "powers" were sort of lame. I mean all she really did was have visions of a church and birds, until the end where all she did was copy Shep's ability to go here there. And who was at this wedding that it actually merited assassins ?? My question to you would be if you had written Jilly as a character what would you do to make her a bit more memorable?? Or if you disagree with me about her defend her in a related comment .

By the light of the moon.....Who wants to be a superhero?!

By the light of the moon was a good read. I enjoyed the story line until the very end. It seemed to me that he had this great story going, but didn't know how to end it. So my first question is:

How would you have ended the story? Keep the line of thought up until they reach the radio broadcasters house, and then think how you would have ended it, instead of them being "superheroes".

Koontz is a great writer and the book kept me intrigued....until the very end, then I felt like Stan Lee was going to appear and name the next superhero!

Good pick ya'll
