I've only read a few of Dean Koontz's works, but of those that I have read, this one is the best! It displays wit and humour. It adds a little brush with the unknown and the realm of fantasy. It also throws in some romance, as well. The interaction between the protagonist and the antagonist was very interesting as well. The twists were surprising, without being too farfetched. All in all, you don't have to be a fan of Koontz to like this book!

There is a twist in this book that will leave you with your mouth hanging open. In true Koontz form this book has you turning pages at a lightning fast pace and never disappoints. I love the hidden message about happiness being a choice.

This was my first Dean Koontz book - I'm not much for horror or gross type stories which I thought Dean Koontz was known for. This was not gory or horrific. No bad words, racy sex stories...probably the most different book I've ever read! Definitely one worthy of keeping in my permanent library! It was certainly an original storyline. Weird, but somehow not unbelievable. VERY ENTERTAINING! I loved it! I've since tried one other Dean Koontz but it was gross & boring & I couldn't finish it. I hope to find more Dean Koontz written like Life Expectancy!!

This is my favorite book for a very long time! I bought it as gifts for members of my family and several friends. It was so much fun. I loved the characters, the banter between characters, and the crazy action. I loved, loved, loved this book!

Dean Koontz is my absolute favorite author of all time. Life Expectancy is the best of all he's written. Those who know Dean Koontz and his style will thrill over this one book. He's funny, witty without being pretentious, and his characters have flaws that we all share. The brilliance is in the story telling. Koontz is a master. I have over 31 of his books and 'Life Expectancy' is my favorite! Read about 3 other titles before you pick this one up and you'll appreciate the voice he uses more. Keep 'em coming, Dean!

I really liked this book. It felt like Dean Koontz wrote it just for me. Nice plot twists and turns. I could not put it down. It's a must read.

Just finished it and loved it - one of only a handful of "5 out of 5"s, in my opinion. Koontz doesn't disappoint.

My aunt's friend frst reccomended Life Expectancy to me while I was reading Watchers, also by Dean Koontz. At first I was reluctant to read it, but it quickly grabbed my attention within the first few pages. Every author has their style which shows in each novel they write, but while rading Life Expectancy, sometimes I forgot who I as reading. This is, without a doubt, one of the best books by Dean Koontz I have ever read! You will not be disappointed.

What can I say other than "Life Expectancy" is one of Dean Koontz's best novels? The offbeat plot combines a fine blend of drama, suspense, love of family, and humor. The pace is crisp, the characters are interesting, and you will want Jimmy Tock and his family to show up again in another Koontz story. "Life Expectancy" is a tale you will long remember.

This was the second Dean Koontz book I have read. The first was not memorable and I did not feel inclined to read anything more by the author. However, I bought this book rather impulsively during a shopping spree and I am so glad I did! I LOVED the main character! Even the villian/villains were awesome in a freaky "holy crap" kind of way. The "hero's" family added real energy and humor to the story. I am now a Dean Koontz fan and have just begun the Odd Thomas series. I'm enjoying those as well!

Probably my favorite book by Koontz ever! I am relly hoping for a sequel! Was a quick read and was unable to put down. Gave it to my husband, best friend, and 23yr old daughter-and all 3 of them loved it too. I promise you will love it too!

I absolutely LOVED this book. It's one of his great books where you are a hundred pages in before you even realize it. It's a non-stop terrifying thrill ride for Jimmy and Lorrie from the moment they meet. With psychotic clowns, aerialists and plenty of humor, Life Expectancy is one of those books that makes me wish for such an eventful (good or bad) life!

This is a book I would recommand for anyone who has the patience to sit down and read. The ending of this book is very surprising. It will keep you gripped to your seat so tight you will never be able to let go. So this book is great for the whole family. Read it and prepare to be enchanted.

I read the first chapter and couldn't stop. It's like best, most addictive drug you can take! I read it in half a week, it was that good! Step back Stephen King, there's a new kid in town!!

This book has a very funny side to it and is appropriate because of who the main characters are dealing with. I guess the dark humor in it is to be expected. I read this one very fast and hope there will be a part 2 but who knows.

I really enjoyed this book! I haven't read a lot of stuff by Dean Koontz yet, but I did really enjoy this book. It was kind of weird, but in a good way, and I didn't want to stop reading it.

For someone who thinks his existence is pretty commonplace, Jimmy Tock sure has some eventful days. Five eventful days, in fact, as predicted by his dying grandfather on the day Jimmy was born. A riveting story with some laugh-out-loud lines, Life Expectancy shares a theme common in other Koontz books: reverence for the everyday world and its wonders, bolstered by a deep and abiding faith in the unseen world that often intervenes.

By far one of the best books by Koontz. Wit, romance and a bit of the unknown wrapped around some great characters. If you've never read anything by Koontz, I suggest you start with this one, then definitely read "Seize the Night" and "Fear Nothing". Just great characters in Christopher Snow and his friends (and a pretty cool dog too).

This is one of his better books. The only thing I dont like about his books is that they seem excessivly wordy. I have tried to read other books of his but simply got tired of just so much. Steven King has also gone this route.
