really liked it
bookshelves: suspense

I'm not sure where to shelve this book, Suspense seems like the best option, although there is humor in it as well.

Dean Koontz is becoming my favorite author. His writing is free flowing, descriptive without being too wordy and well developed. I like the humor that pops out when you least expect it.

Life Expectancy has a lot going on in it. The story begins with a baby being born at the exact same moment that is grandfather takes his last breath. Before the grandfather dies, however, he tells his son, the expectant father, the exact time the baby boy will be born, how much he will weigh and gives him 5 dates to write down. On each of those days, in the following 30 yrs, something terrible will happen to the boy. That's all he says, then he dies.

And so the story begins...
It's not edge of your seat suspense, rather curious to know what's going to happen suspense. It's not frightening or disturbing either.
