The story was coherent and the logic behind time travel paradigms was believable.
Lara Shane was my favorite character because of her strength and determination to go on even after so many things went wrong in her life.
This is the first book I heard narrated by Christopher Lane. But from now on he's on my list of favorites.
yes. I wanted to know what would happen next. I was very much into the story, so at the end when I had about 1 hour left to listen, I decided listen till the end.
Great book by Koontz. Became even greater by Christopher Lane excellent performance. Now I have two favorite narrators, Mr. Lane and David Aaron Baker
I'm used to Dean's 40 hour books, so this one was sadly too short. The story was great, fast paced and exciting. Dean seems to always nail these wonderful strong women characters. He used the first cussword I've ever heard in this book (this is my 4th Koontz). (False Memory my favorite by far).The Narrator did a pretty good job overall, but his voice of Thelma sounded like an effiminate gay man. That annoyed me, and didn't let me appreciate Thelma's character as I should have.
I loved the time travel. Great plotline. Why did it take me 41 years of serious reading to find Dean Koontz? So glad I waited so I can enjoy him now.
I thought I had actually missed some of the story and I replayed it.
This is on the shy side of his best.
The unfolding drama in the beginning.
Mind my own writing.
Seemed like Dean needed to clean the lose ends up expediently, the end was tied up in a bow. :(
I honestly found the narrator's voices for women to be offensive. Listen to it, you'll understand what I mean. Though to be honest the accent he does for men isn't much better.
I love audible helps me through my work day.
Great Sci-Fi story, with a small twist of romance. Strong female lead, that doesn't need the male lead to save her from everything. Enough sci-fi/romance for both male and female readers. Good solid story.
This story was both an excellent thriller, with spies, guns, time travel—but also tenderness and touching characters. Loved it!
I've read this book about 6 or 7 times so far. This is the best book that Knootz has written of those that I've read. It is not long winded like some of his, it is not dark and doesn't sicken. It is perfectly paced although stretching out over decades I am always glued. It is poignant and funny, if you are like me you'll laugh with tears in your eyes in a few places. This book is not only Knootz' best book but one of my all time favorites (if not #1).
After this book I listened to another story by Dean Knootz, "A Big Little Life". Lane did SO GOOD in that book yet somehow he ruined this one. One of the best characters in the book, the surviving twin, he read like a addle-brained valley girl. This is only one example of how badly the book came out. If I hadn't read it so many times his reading might have ruined for me. I know Lane can do better than this because he did it in the book I mentioned above. Lightning might have been an early book of his. If so, perhaps he could redo it or someone else can do it. This is unacceptable as is.
No. None of Koontz's novels has been successfully converted into movies. I would write to Koontz and beg him NOT to ruin this book in such a cheapening way.
Read this in paperback in what seems like a hundred years ago and had to have it in audio. Lighting is enjoyable and entertaining. Along with Watchers, Lightning is one of my favorite Koontz books.
I love time-travel books, and this was one of the most enjoyable I have ever read. It did a great job of intertwining the two different time periods, slowly revealing the time-traveler's purpose and the period he came from. It was also neat how the author included significant characters from world history, and how a statement made to one of the historical characters by the time-traveler wound up changing world history.
I liked how the main character of the book was strong and had a great relationship with her family through so much adversity, and how she stood up to evil at a great cost. I also liked how the author incorporated a bit of humor in the book from time to time.
Mr Lane did a masterful job! I will definitely look for more narrations from him.
The whole story comes together in the end, you can't guess it but in Dean Koontz true style, you know there is a morale to this story and it is, as always a great story that makes you feel good at the end. I personally love Dean Koontz and have read many of his books. This one is definitely one of my favourites.
Dean Koontz has his own style and a lot of his books have a similar thread. I would compare it most to Strangers.
I loved the scene when Stephan explains to Laura why he has followed her throughout her life and changed it for the better. Everything makes sense right there and makes the rest of the book really enjoyable too.
The narration was very good too.
