From the Corner of His Eye
From the Corner of His Eye is the first novel that I read by Dean Koontz who has since become my absolute favorite author. The characters in this story are amazing which includes protagonists Barty and Angel, two gifted young children born world's apart but were both born into tragedy, and Junior Cain, the antagonist, a violent criminal with evil intentions. I love the way that he integrates fiction, physics, science fiction, and horror into his stories and still finds a way to make us love and loathe the characters.
It's a big book, but don't let that scare you off. By the end of it, youre gonna wish it would have been double!
