“Review: Life Expectancy by Dean Koontz.
I haven’t read anything from Dean Koontz in some time. This one was a little disappointing to me. I don’t remember him writing this way or creating a story in this fashion. I might have forgotten his work but this one seemed out of context for him. Or it was just me. After a while I did get use to the story content and the pages flew by.
It’s a story of five days in the life of an ordinary man born to an extraordinary legacy. This story challenges the way you look at good and evil, life and death, and everything in between. It’s about a grandfather dying at the same time that his grandson is born. However, before he dies he comes out of a coma and talks about a certain five different days that something terrible will happen in his grandson’s life. It had a lot of humor but I thought some of it was corny humor. I guess some people like that style of writing but I could have done without it. When I finally got use to the humor the story started to come together to make it become more suitable to read. There were parts that kept my interest to finish the book. Like I said some people might like the book. The story also had some clown characters who were the villains of the story.
No matter what I think of this book I will still read Dean Koontz Novels.
