a thought-provoking read
This is one of Mr Koontz's 2 best ever books. It is suspenseful and spiritually uplifting. The characters are unforgettable. I would especially recommend it to anyone who has had a hard life, and anyone who loves dogs.

I love how Koontz used the girl Leilani to make my heart warm as the
sun in my country..... Please consider reading this book if your depressed

A great book. I picked it up for a long flight home and did not know what to expect. I had never read any of Mr. Koontz's books. I went into it not knowing what to expect and was pleasantly and frequently suprised with the twists and turns. It's true what they say about his creating characters you really care about. Having just finished, I wish only to know what happens next!

All I can say about "One Door Away From Heaven" is, WOW. It was a wonderful blend of spirituality/suspense/mystery/drama and good versus evil. This book was my first Koontz novel and I have read three since then. All were wonderful but I have been especially fond of One Door Away from Heaven. Great book. I recommend to anyone!

It was a very good book. I have liked all of the books that I have read By Mr. Koontz my favorite is By the light of the moon, Which was also the book that got me started reading his novels. I think that I would give all his books fives for the fact that He takes some outragous things that when telling people about the book they think that is is way out there. And he makes them seem not as nutty as you might think
Great book

it was cute and i like his writing style for an enjoyable quick read but towards the end this book just doesn't sit well. thier was more than one subject that i sensed a thinly veiled agenda. the characters were of course mostly outrageous but i think that was kind of the point and it kept me turning pages and wondering what would happen next. i noticed a little bit of grasping towards the end attempting to reign the story in and a little preachiness aimed at yours truly the unwitting reader. anyhoo, i was entertained for the time being and i have started telepathically connecting with my dog, Francie. so read with caution
