Life Expectancy, by Dean Koontz
Jimmy tells the story from his perspective. The first 23 chapters are about the first terrible day of Jimmy’s life. One way to describe it could be, “A Hannibal Lecter University graduate meets Abbot and Costello at the Bates Motel”. It was quite humorous throughout with some seriousness as well. The back and forth use of literary references during conversations and Jimmy’s thoughts were so very humorous and entertaining causing almost constant chuckles. It had quite a few unexpected twists and turns, and what a surprise ending!
