    It is the fall of 1951 at Mount St. Gabriels, an all-girls school tucked away in the mountains of North Carolina. Tildy Stratton, the undisputed queen bee of her class, befriends Chloe Starnes, a new student recently orphaned by the untimely and mysterious death of her mother. Their friendship fills a void for both girls but also sets in motion a chain of events that will profoundly affect the course of many lives, including the girls' young teacher and the school's matriarch.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes - interesting, well told, great narration


    What about Kimberly Farr’s performance did you like?

    If I'm not thinking about the narration while listening, that is a good thing. In this book, all I thought about was the story. It was flawless.

    One ordinary winter afternoon on a snowy island, Anders and Cecilia take their sixyearold daughter Maja across the ice to visit the lighthouse in the middle of the frozen channel. While the couple explore the lighthouse, Maja disappears - either into thin air or under thin ice - leaving not even a footprint in the snow. Two years later, alone and more or less permanently drunk, Anders returns to the island to regroup. He slowly realizes that people are not telling him all they know....

    What disappointed you about Harbor?

    it seemed too bizarre and way too long for the actual story


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Ajvide Lindqvist again?

    I don't think so


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance was ok

    Story

    An ordinary parking lot in southern California. Christine Scavello and her six-year-old son are accosted by a strange old woman. "I know who you are," the woman snaps at the boy. "I know what you are." A scream, a threat - and then a grotesque act of violence. Suddenly Christine's pride and joy, her only son, is targeted by a group of religious fanatics. They've branded him the Antichrist. They want to kill him. And they are everywhere.

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or Angela Dawe?

    By Dean Koontz absolutely - but not narrated by Angela Dawe


    If you’ve listened to books by Dean Koontz before, how does this one compare?

    The narration is so wonky that it takes away from the story. The voice used when not talking as a particular character is terrible. Every sentence sounds the same with the last word drawn out in a wierd annoying way.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?
