yeah i know Rose got killed cause she died of the gunshot wound that she received on the beach.

Joe got away cause he escaped the reach of the kid they had in the lab that took control and he escaped so no one knew where to find him.

I just finished this book and I was a bit to sad for me. I had a really hard time with Joe's feelings. they overwelmed me. I think the first half did me in but the last half was better.not one of my favs. but not at the bottom

I am new to this forum and I just finished reading Life Expectancy. I thought it was an excellent read! It was very hard for me to put it down! I am now about to read Sole Survivor. I have'nt really seen much talk about this book on this forum, but on the reviews this book got 4 out of 5 stars. Was just wondering what some of u thought about this book? Also what other Koontz books would u recommend for my next read?

Short synopsis:
Joe Carpenter's wife and children perished with more than 200 other people in the crash of United Airlines Flight 246. When he meets a woman who claims to have survived the crash, Joe begins a desperate and dangerous search for the truth.

Keep em' coming Koontz

Sole Survivor is very well like by Koontz devotees. Some people didn't like it too much, but if you are a big Koontz fan you will enjoy that one.

Read them all next. Or just take a look at my top 10 in my signature.

Come join us on the forum above this one to discuss more.

Joe escaped being killed because every time the boy was busy inside someone else, and by the time he was done Joe got out of reach. The time he got real close was in the house that got burned, that's why Joe felt that coldness in his neck, but then Joe got out and closed the door. Remember the boy can't follow people from one location to the next right away.

I felt so sad for the boy!!! He's only six, and the only thing he can do is kill people!!! That made me cry more than anything else in the book. I know the family has not survived, but the whole point was they were happy in heaven.
