Dean Koontz made this list. I have loved his works since wayy back. Stephen King can make one shiver and dream bad dreams but Dean just had a way to make one feel good about horror. I agree with this list

So so true. I have about 70 of his titles. Read about seven. Currently reading the 8th.

Dean Koontz remains one of my best contemporary writers. I have read most of his works. The suspense of his books are enigmatic.
Go read his " The Watchers" and " The Whispers", The Husband".

However, I would have expected to see Stephen King and Mario Puzo on your list.

How many have you read? Do you write?

I suck at reading novel. The everyday "wahala" doesn't give me time to read. Any way out for me?

Go for audiobooks.

This is exactly what I hinted at: if you had minded reading English novels more than laying much importance on the internet, Nollywood and Hip Hop, you would have known easily that "offers" in your quoted post above should have been spelt "offer"! The internet, Nollywood and Hip Hop can't light a candle to Reading.

That's a mistake anyone could have made sir.
Thanks for the correction though.

At the introduction of his work "Da Vinci code " he said he wouldn't say the book is a fiction, neither will he say it's non fiction. All his works are done in 24hrs.


I'm yet to read Angels and demons but Da Vinci code blew my mind.

Angels and demons is very good book and I prefer it to Da Vinci code. It is more towards nonfiction than fiction. Makes you think and query things.

John Grisham's novels are fantastic too. You can start with A Time to Kill. It's all about captivating your interest and making sure you want to continue to the next chapter.
Have a great day sir

I have read quite many of his books. Though I haven't read his recent ones.
I started reading his books almost 20yrs ago.

The first of his books I read was Watchers, and that seem to me to be one of his best.
I have some of them in Hard copies as I don't
't ever stop to buy his books when I see them.
Servant of Twilight, Tick Tock, Strangers, The Husband, The Open Door, Fear Nothing, Lightening are some of his good books.
Dean Koontz has a style of writing that engulf readers and most times in the end he tries to makes readers understand the reasons behind a villain actions and make readers pity the villlian situation.
He is a great writer. As good as Stephen King when it comes to Horror stories.
I had quite a lot of them, but I have lost some as people borrow but don't return them.

Yes, I write. But not stories. Am into Research writings. I have also written 2 biographies for people.

From the list, I can tell the Op is an amateur.
All I see here are contemporary writers.
No Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
No Leo Tolstoy.
No Pushkin.
No Oscar Wilde.
Classical literature still remains the gold standard becuase it was written at a time when there was no digital noise.
He said 21st century dude. Oscar Wilde ke?!
