I absolutely loved reading this book, but I have to say the ending was somewhat of a disappointment. As another reader said, it felt completely unresolved.

Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors and I've read and like just about everything he's written; but is it just me or does anyone else feel like this.....I just can't get into this book (From the Corner of His Eye)! I don't know what it is but I just cannot get into it....although I am pushing myself to continue reading b/c I want to finish it. It gets really interesting and then..........slows down or I lose interest or something. I've read some of the other posts and others seem to really like it....am I the only one????
A Great book with fascinating characters and a plot that keeps you hooked to the end, unfortunately the end is quite anticlimactic for this long of a book you expected a bit more for the ending, but the rich characters, from psychopaths to priests Koontz is a masterful story teller and the many aspects of this book, nevertheless will stay with you for a long time.
I was captivated by the premise, and somewhat dissapointed in the general plot, though it kept a good suspense, the end was too quick, too short, and too... unresolved. The narrative was good, the inclusion of humour and facts is a Koont'z signature (as the Elvis references in Odd Thomas). Also, I noticed that the end.... SPOILERS!!!!!!! gives reference to a place with big bugs... and then the characters refer to it as a "bad place". In Koont'z novel The Bad Place, Frank travels to a place (possibly another world) where there are big bugs, and there are all those red jewels scattered around. Maybe Enoch was sent there... what do you think?
