From the Corner of His Eye
by Dean Koontz

A horror novel told by God about an psychopath who is obsessed with finding and killing a boy named Bartholomew. It is a big, complex book with many characters including a detective who intuitively knows about the psychopath, a girl named Angel who is the psychoís daughter by rape, and Bart who is a boy genius who loses his eyes to cancer. These three are all aware of living in multiple parallel universes.

The book does a good job of explaining the psychoís amoral philosophy and esthetics. I listened to 11/13 of the book on tape and read the last part. The man reading the story didnít get the humor. Jack Nicholson would have been a much better choice. The book has a sappy ending that makes you cry.

Year Read: 2005
