      I have been a huge Dean Koontz fan for over a decade now and have learned to expect the unexpected in most cases with this very talented thriller writer. “Life Expectancy” caught my completely off-guard and in a very different way.

      Hilarity.

      I couldn’t have been more than half a dozen pages in


      before I started laughing out loud at the crazy yet somehow cohesive dialogue between characters.

      There are so many subtle funny things in this book that you feel like you’re on the receiving end of an inside joke.

      The book, of course, is still a suspenseful thriller with a great, unique and frustratingly ...


      • page-turning plot, as are the majority of his books.

        However, the most unique thing in this was the hilarious dialogue and thoughts of characters.

        Koontz story follows a man from his birth, where his grandfather made five predictions of terrible days in his life, through those days and what happens throughout.

        Starting from the

        day of his birth, the funny business begins with a clown in the expectant father’s waiting room who turns out to be not your usual clown.

        The conversations these characters build into (especially the apocalypse minded grandma ‘Weena’) will keep you turning the pages with a stitch in your side.

        A must read in my book.
