I love Dean Koontz all the way!

I read Patterson, but mainly just to say what a horrible author he is compared to John Sandford, another author of the genre.

Never read any of his work...I've only read one of James Patterson's series. It was a seven book series which was pretty good. But, i've read nearly all of Dean Koontz' books.

Koontz, I guess. I've only read a couple of books by him, but at least I managed to finish them.

I haven't even been able to get to chapter 5 in anything by James Patterson, he's so bad.

The only thing I really like about Patterson is the fact that his chapters are only 1-2 pages. It makes me want to finish the book faster.

They are both authors who have had several novels on the New York TImes Bestsellers list. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?

I strongly recommend John Sandford.
What I like more about him is that he doesn't often write in 1st person, so it doesn't seem as ego-centric; his supervillians are still fallible human beings so that the hero doesn't have to be magic to beat him; and he uses realistic touches like a 1/2 page dialogue digression on whether someone used a word correctly or what someone should get with his itunes gift certificate or a dead end lead that wastes 6 hours.

Interesting. I'll check him out.

i love Dean Koontz. I also love james pattersons writings under the name Jonathan Aycliffe. (He writes paranormal novels under this different name)

I've never read James Patterson.I think Koontz's Odd Thomas series has that page-turner quality but the moralizing undertones get on my nerves.

I agree. He just released a new book in that series called "Odd Hours." I have yet to read it.
