"The Book of Counted Sorrows" by Dean Koontz?

I am currently trying to decide if I want to purchase it.  If anyone has it, can you tell me what you think?

Thanks.

Why buy?
Check it out at your public library?
But no, I am not familiar with the book.

I love reading him! He is one of my favorites I don't have that one though, and I asked my daughter, she reads him too. She doesn't either. Yeah, library would be good or a used book store. Why pay full price? Or at all LOL

If you read it will you let me know how it is?

Well, it's a limited edition and all copies are signed from what I have learned.  Not sure if it would be in the library.

I found one on amazon for $185.  So far that is the lowest priced copy I have been able to find..

Koontz is one of my favorites when it comes to entertainment reading.

Susan,

Koontz quotes from the Book of Counted Sorrows at the front of each book he writes.  That is why I think I would love it, because I love what I have seen. If you have any Koontz books around, check it out..

No, but I'd like to hear your reviews once you read it. Some guy wanted 5k for his copy on that site. Goodness!

The K's are worth K's. King, Koontz.

Where Susan?  I will cancel my order and wait too - can you give me the link please?  I found one signed one for $185.00 but I don't care if it is signed or not, just the complete collection.  Here's a taste to hold you Koontz - Book Of Counted Sorrows and these as well to tease you More Counted Sorrows

Sharon,

Do a search on Koontz, go to his web site and it's in the store.  

Oh and here is my favorite that is my quote on my myspace:

"In the real world
as in dreams,
nothing is quite
what it seems."

Thanks and Happy Holidays Susan, I found it!  It is going to be -12 here and we are not used to that so wish I had it to curl up with now.

        
Happy Holidays, Love Mysteria

Actually they changed their mind and it is only going to be -9 whoopdedo!  I went for a walk and came back and ran for the hot chocolate.  Even my dog doesn't mind her coat on, it is dang cold.

P.S. This has nothing to do with anything, but have you seen the site, Etsy?  Unreal!  It is like having a worldwide craft fair at your fingertips.  Sorry - had to throw that in there as I love supporting creative souls.
