This book is one of my all time favorites. I have read it several times and now, having it in audio format I can listen to it whenever I like. Which is usually on my way to work. Love it.
Held my interest from the very beginning to the very end. Thrilling, exciting, edge of your seat, a real page turner. It is such an interesting story. I loved all the characters. Didn't want it to end. I had read this book a while back and enjoyed it at that time. However, on audible with Christopher Lane as narrator, his many amazing voices made the experience of listening to the story that much better. His performance was Oscar worthy. I will look for more books with him as the narrator. Highly recommend! Definitely worth the credit
Edge of your seat, with twists and turns throughout
The action packed conclusion
With Winston Churchill
Take a trip on the Lightning Road
Arguably the BEST of the BEST of Dean Koontz
Lightning by Dean Koontz is an allegorical time travel thriller. Koontz chips out both his characters and his suspenseful plot as a woodcarver brings a statue from a log of fine wood. Accepting he gives to the scientific community in Nazi Germany requires a well developed skill for suspending belief. The heroine's eight-year-old son seems more a prodigy than a normal kid. His mother also seems more a superhero than mother and author. However, even with these few weaknesses, I give Lightning five stars and recommend you give it a listen.
Robert Koontz has given the world so many wonderful books this is my favorite.The story is so unique
From the beginning you start guessing and fall in love with the characters
His voice gently pulls you into the story
When the thunder roll......get ready.......for who knows what will follow
I have both read and listened to this book twice ,and I know I will enjoy it again
The narrator was wonderful. Very easy to listen to. I'll look for more with Christopher Lane narrating.
The Guardian Angel for reasons that will be known if you read it all the way to the very end.
Rhythm. I noticed that when I read a book, I tend to flip through the boring details and get to the climax or resolution. Christopher Lane does an excellent job going through the rhythm to rev up the excitement.
Magic, Myth, Monsters
The convoluted plot. Normally, I figure them out. Not this time.
The action wasn't non-stop--there was good character build up, too. But the tension was constant!
The phone calls! So neat!
Both, as Koontz always does
Listen to it
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
This was a fun and decently written Sci-Fi Thriller. It's the first book I've read by Koontz and based off of this I would read another. It was a bit different than I at first thought it would be, but I"m not gong to mention what it was as that will give parts of the story away.
Absolutely one of the best Koontz ever wrote. Twists and turns, non stop action. Loved it. In Lightning, Koontz provides the fast paced, suspenseful storytelling he is known for, and well developed characters that you care about. The narration is excellent. I thought Christopher Lane did a fantastic job.
