Anyone who has read a Dean Koontz book will surely say he is a master at his work.

The Top Ten

1 Watchers Watchers

An amazing story of the corruption going on in todays science industry. -

Koontz says this is his favorite, the story he most enjoyed writing. I can see why. Fully realized characters you will take to heart. He really knows how to keep the suspense coming. If you are a dog lover this book will thrill you! THE POWER OF LOVE

I have read and re-read this book because it is so good! It is a rare thing for me to read a book more than once but this one is an exception. I love it and it has no dull moments!

One of those books that will stay in your heart for the rest of your life.

Dean Koontz is an absolute treasure and gift! May he live forever and never stop creating gems like this awesome book.

2 Lightning Lightning

My personal favorite Koontz book. I've read it twice and I have encouraged others in my family to read it, and they all loved it as well

The best book I have ever read. It is so unique and lovable

I loved this book. It is my newest favorite Koontz book and I have read quite a few!

Brilliant story telling! Absolutely riveting!

3 Midnight Midnight

Again... a perfect book to show the corruption in government and science. -

Stands out even among excellent books.

Could not put it down! Totally awesome!

4 Winter Moon Winter Moon

The one that lead me into the wonderful world of Koontz. Might there be something in the forest, amidst the pines, beneath the winter moon, lurking and waiting to become?

5 Dragon Tears Dragon Tears

Dragon tears was my first introduction to Koontz. Many years later and having read much of his work, the antagonist in this story is still my favorite.

Really good book. One of his best.

6 Hideaway Hideaway

The third Dean Koontz I've ever read and I'm not sorry at all. A great book. -

7 Tick Tock Tick Tock

This book is awesome! Read it for yourself because its really hard to explain. -

I was actually sad when I finished it because I wanted to know what was going to happen to the lovable characters

By far one of my favorite books of all time. It has so much suspense that you won't want to put the book down until you have finished it. Great read!

This book took me a minute to get into it.. once suspense started, it was interesting. However, the ending was rather blahh.. I wasn't impressed. I felt like it was a quick wrap-up of the book just to get it over with.

8 Phantoms Phantoms

This is one of the few novels of Dean Koontz's that I've revisited over and over again. It made me look at shadows very carefully for a long time and to always turn off a dripping tap. I enjoy the plot and the characters very much.

I read this when I was 13(probably a little young), it scared me so much that I didn't sleep that night. It was a while before I would go to the bathroom at night! I would turn out my lights and jump into bed, which eventually became mattress and box spring on the floor( there were things under the bed)! Dean Koontz was my boogieman.

The first novel I have read. And Dean Koontz catches my attention. He touches My heart. This book is very sentimental and historic to my life

Yes...this book scared me also. Loved it. Now looking the next good book by him hoping it can scare me. Not too much to make me put the book down and stop reading it.

9 Odd Thomas Odd Thomas

Odd Thomas is probably one of the few "perfect novels" that Koontz has ever written (along with Watchers), as it has a great protagonist, an excellent plot and ends exactly how it's supposed to, but with a few surprises along the way.

Love this book. Have read the next 2 in the series as well, also very good.

My daughter recommended this to me and I could not read through the series fast enough. Cannot wait for the next one.

Started it all for me. Really loved Deeply Odd and Odd Hours.

10 Intensity Intensity

Intensity, in my opinion, is the touchstone by which all suspense thrillers should be measured. It is one of the rare books that never gets boring even during the middle of the book. It starts off in high gear, climbs into overdrive in the middle, and by the end, it is nothing short of pure nitro! It is a true masterpiece.

My daughter asked me to recommend a gripping book because she was bored with what she had been reading. She then yelled at me because she said she couldn't read this one at night. Laugh out loud It's that good. Following this gal as she travels right along with the killer had me looking over my shoulder the entire time I read this book. Such an excellent idea for a story but man, it scared the heck outta me at the same time.

This is the first Dean Koontz book I have ever read and since then I never lost interest with his works. You can feel you adrenaline rushing through your veins as the story unfolds. The emotional roller is balanced with intellectual and psychological journey of the main character, rooting the deep courage Chyna manifested. Truly a hard-gripping books and one of the best!

I love this book! Read it!

The Contenders

11 Cold Fire Cold Fire

Top of the line suspence. Great for a book report. Believe my A . - fireinside96

One of the 1st books I read from Koontz, and after many years and even more books, it's still in my top five favorites list!

12 From the Corner of His Eye From the Corner of His Eye

I have so many Dean Koontz favorites, and this one tops the list! I laughed, I cried, and was struck dumb in awe. The only fault I could find with this book was that it wasn't longer...

One of the most touching books of all time. It will make you question the connection of all things in life. Truly original and beautiful

First book I read by Koontz. It made me want to read more. Too bad his writing isn't always this good.

One of his best.

18 Fear Nothing Fear Nothing

I've enjoyed over 35 Koontz books. For some reason I couldn't finish this or Winter Moon. Took forever for something to happen. I'm sure I'll try again and succeed.

One of only a few books I've read more than once. Seize the Night was also worthy of a reread.

Love this book and sequel Seize the Night these are both great

Good read. Hard to put down.

One of my favorite books of his. I read it in the 90s and still think about it to this day.

DEFINITE. It should and so should from the corner of his eye

Wonderful characters and great style.

Simply one of the best books I ever read, this is what introduced me to Mr Koontz, so I'm excited listed before, I'm going to buy them all now!

20 Frankenstein: Prodigal Son Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

This is an amazing book where his forte, corruption in the science industry, is clearly seen. -

An easy read that left me wanting #2 which I just finished. On to #3!

Absolutely top-notch Dean Koontz

Loved the whole series. I hope they definitely make these into a movie or T.V. series. It would have to have some money behind it so as not to be cheesy but, if done correctly, would be a huge hit.
