I loved this audio book! It was my very first and I couldn't wait to get in my car to listen every day!
I liked the plot, the suspense.
My favorite scene was when the main character & her son got killed.
This was my first Dean Koontz book. Amazing story, plot, characters. He throws you on a roller coaster ride of emotion and suspense, and manages an ending you can be satisfied with. He's a great story-teller with a limitless imagination. The narrator was great as well. I would totally recommend it!
This book was not as good as most of the Koontz I read. I felt often like he was insulting my intelligence and adding information that was both irrelevant and inaccurate. We are not talking historically accurate either. He contradicted himself frequently, and the story seemed unnecessarily long. There were points that I thought I got lost. Overall, I made it through the book, and do not feel terrible about spending my time listening to it, but would not read it again.
Intense and always surprised by the next moment of the story
I think there were many memorable moments in this story
This was my first Christopher Lane
I would sit in my car just to listen to this book. I had a hard time turning it off.
This was my first Dean Koontz so I was a little leery after being a Harlan Coben fan for so long. I am glad I gave in and tried this book. I loved Dean Koontz's writing and imagination. I will be reading another one of his real soon.
Above the rest. The narrator was superb in creating the necessary accents needed to make the story seem OH SO REAL!!
This is my first Koontz book on Audible but I read some of his work many years ago, and have always liked his books. I think I'm going for the Odd Thomas series next.
His narration brings the book to life through the spoken part. He was really 'WUNDERBAR'!!! When he spoke Thelma's lines I really cracked up!! Every charachter had their own inflection that made each one sound so different.
What does the bolt of lightening bring - friend or foe?
I felt I was listening to a cross between Back to the Future and the Terminator with both the funny side but the suspenseful side as well. SO enjoyed this book!!
I am a first time Koontz listener, got the book in one of the specials, and it held me the whole way through the story
Couldn't compare, he is very much an individual writer, that was probably why I enjoyed the book so much
He had a good suite of voices and kept you knowing which character was talking when by the different tones he was able to call upon
No, just enjoyed it, which is why I am writing the review
Maybe the Dean Koontz I thought I knew is not the Dean Koontz that is so widely popular. I enjoyed the previous book I read, ‘The Good Guy”. It was not science fiction. Lightning is a science fiction. I know for a fact that I will have to read reviews better before choosing another book of his to avoid paranormal activity.
This book was just not my cup of tea. I was good with the basic story even the little strangeness here and there and yes, I enjoyed the best ever education in paradoxes for dummies. But, it went from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants to Traveling Nazi’s looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction overnight and lost me completely. When I see scientific proof of time travel, then I might see a reason to read about chase scenes through the decades.
Its a rhetoric concept with several versions of time travel stories over the years. But Koontz knows how to weave a tale and still manages to keep it moving. Not as much fun as other koontz but well performed .
This book was full of excitement and didn't seem to slow down at all. It was a great story and I enjoyed the narrator as well. Definitely recommend it. I know it's one of Dean Koontz's older books, but if you've never read any of his books before, this is a great place to get hooked.
