Your Heart Belongs to Me is a novel by science fiction/horror writer Dean Koontz. The plot revolves around Ryan Perry, who receives a heart transplant. From the New York Times bestselling master of suspense comes a riveting thriller that probes the deepest terrors of the human psyche-and the ineffable mystery of what truly makes us who we are. Here a brilliant young man finds himself fighting for his very existence in a battle that starts with the most frightening words of all.

It wasn't until the end that the main character, Ryan Perry, became likeable. I know it was part of the plot to start him out as a very self-centered man. I had a hard time getting around the fact that as he is about to undergo a heart transplant he doesn't even let his parents know, just assuming they wouldn't be interested. In this case, I wasn't really smiling.

More important, this mattered to him because in those depths of the tale, he sensed a waiting revelation that could explain why they remained apart although they loved each other. Why she had not at once accepted his proposal of marriage. And why she might never accept it.

Normally I have enjoyed Dean Koontz' books, but this one I have a problem figuring out. The story is quite ok, but . The story is quite ok, but the ending is surprising. I would expect Koontz to come up with something better. Dean Koontz, the author of many New York Times bestsellers, lives in Southern California with his wife, Gerda, their golden retriever, Elsa, and the enduring spirit of their goldens, Trixie and Anna.

Dissing his new novels is so easy it's not even funny. I loved this book! It had romance, it had drama and mystery. Your Heart Belongs to Me (2008) is an attempt at a medical thriller, in the vein of Tess Gerritsen and Robin Cook. The premise is as follows: Ryan Perry, a 34 year old disgustingly rich guy has a heart problem and is in desperate need of a transplant. He learns of a terrible medical condition that limits his life to a year if he doesn't receive a new heart.

Something happened to his heart. Already quick with anticipation of the ride, the beat suddenly accelerated and began to pound with a force more suited to a moment of high terror than to one of pleasant excitement.

Your heart belongs to me, . Something happened to his heart. He could feel his pulse throbbing in his ankles, wrists, throat, temples.

A Q&A with Dean Koontz. There will be three more Odd Thomas novels, but my book for spring 2009 is not one of them. It’s titled The Other Side of the Woods and is in the vein of Life Expectancy. Your Heart Belongs to Me is very suspenseful but at the same time an affecting love story. How difficult was this to pull off? Well, life is full of suspense and, if we’re lucky, it’s full of love as well. From minute to minute and day to day, we never know what will happen to us, good or bad, so suspense is the fundamental condition of existence. I’m having great fun with it.

Originally published: New York : Bantam Books, 2008.

For one man, they are the five most terrifying words of all . . . One year after the heart transplant that saved his life, thirty-five-year-old Ryan Perry has never felt better. He’s getting back everything he nearly lost forever—his business, his his life, and, with luck, his beloved girlfriend. Miracles do happen. Then the unmarked gifts begin to arrive—a box of candy hearts, a heart pendant. Most disturbing of all is a graphic heart-surgery video and its chilling message: Your heart belongs to me. Ryan is being stalked by someone who feels entitled to everything he has. She’s the spitting image of the twenty-six-year-old donor of the heart beating steadily in Ryan’s own chest. And she’s come to take it back.

Dean Koontz is probably my favorite writer but this book was disappointing. It wasn't until the end that the main character, Ryan Perry, became likeable. I know it was part of the plot to start him out as a very self-centered man. I had a hard time getting around the fact that as he is about to undergo a heart transplant he doesn't even let his parents know, just assuming they wouldn't be interested. I was disappointed in the character of Samantha as well. She never really "helps" Ryan by explaining things to him. Yes it kept me reading, to understand the seemingly "supernatural" events. The explanations were simply glossed over. I would have preferred to see Ryan and Sam work things out together, but then again, you never know where a Koontz novel is going to go. I gave it three stars because there was good suspense.

Well, this is not spooky Koontz of the 80's or 90's, nor the more intriguingly, bittersweet adventures of Odd Thomas, but the "new" Koontz exploring mortality and ambiguity, similar in tone to Stephen King's Duma Key. The story starts out with Ryan, the 30 + year-old dot.com millionaire having fun with living his life. He falls in love with the driven writer, Sam, an identical twin whose sister died, and here, his trouble starts. Sam is just not that into him. Then, the mysterious physical symptoms start. To anyone who has faced life-threatening illness, you can identify with the fear, suspicion, need for control. Well, Ryan steps up to take charge...with the best docs around...all the while feeling something is not quite right. Well, you have to read to see that, indeed, all was not quite right. But the story evolves and you are left wondering...what was going really going on? What was the "subtext" of the story as Sam, the writer would say? The book gets high marks for chronicling Ryan's introspections, the development of mystery and revelation, but the ending...a bit hard to believe. Still well worth reading.

I've read a number of Koontz's books, though admittedly not all. Of the ones I've read this is my favorite and the easiest read of all. I love a good scare and started reading his books for the shiver. Although not of the horror genre, this one didn't disappoint. I got all the thrills and chills I'd hoped for and it carried me through a number of other emotions I wasn't expecting. I would have given it five stars but it left me floundering at one point, and I felt that part might have been handled differently. But then that's my perspective. Over all a stellar read. I definitely recommend it.

Normally I inhale Mr Koontz's work but this one just didn't click for me. It did ask some interesting questions, but when I read his books I usually walk away with a smile on my face, thinking about the wonder of the human spirit.

In this case, I wasn't really smiling. I don't want to give spoilers, but in general the question asked is: if great evil is done on behalf of someone who does not know about it, is that person responsible? Does that person have to spend the rest of his life atoning for the evil, just because he ends up thinking he *should* have known about it?

If the clues were more obvious, I might have felt better, but frankly I missed them too. When the explanation came, I thought, 'Wow, never saw THAT coming...' So it's hard to believe that the main character beats himself up over having believed in the sort of people that we've all spent our lives being taught to trust...especially when they seem so darned NICE...

There were also an awful lot of loose ends. Some characters who seemed to have been put there just so we could love to hate them ended up completely uninvolved with the story.

I have always bought this author's work in hardcover, on release day, and I will continue to do so. I don't regret buying this one, but it won't go onto my 'reread this' pile.

Awhile ago I started to read this book, and when I was just over half way done the book started over. I guess it was a problem with the printer, anyway I can't believe it took so long to read this book. I loved everything about it. So many twist and turns, I wonder if I would have been able to read all the clues. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book very much.

Loved this book. Kept me on the edge of my seat. masterful writing.

Really really enjoyed this book all the way through! Except for the ending I think most people will love the ending but it wasn't what I was hoping for. Definitely going to be reading more Dean Koontz books!
Very interesting and suspenseful. But not sure what Samantha wanted from Ryan. It wasn't clear to me and really didn't understand the ending. But it held my interest to the end. Also makes you think about where organ donations are coming from. Guess if you need one you need to ask that question.
