    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."
    "Thumbs Up!"

    Brilliantly researched and executed. It's DK as only he can do. Narration was one of the best ever and had my attention from beginning to end.

    What if you weren't who you thought you were, what others saw you to be? What if the structure of time depended on you to keep it steady? What if unseen forces, both good and evil, surrounded you, effecting your life in way's you could not begin to imagine? Well, if that were the case, you'd be Mark De Martel, unobtrusive advertising agent in Los Angeles.

    Good narration is a talent that is very often NOT given to those that are gifted to write a book. The author here definitely needs to leave the narration to a professional. It would otherwise probably be a very decent read.

    Jennifer Harper breaks new ground in her fast-paced, scandalously entertaining novel. Listeners will be amazed by the way Harper weaves this juicy tale of betrayal, love, and friendship told in a witty style. Harper has a fresh, engaging voice that will intrigue, delight, and challenge listeners. Still a Friend of Mine is a fresh, enthralling, and witty tale that follows the journey of two best friends from college through their scandals, dating escapades, and family drama until a man comes between them.

    The book was probably some decent work but the narrator was the worst I've ever heard and almost made the book unbearable. The reading level of the narrator was obviously elementary!

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "SURPRISED!"
    Overall

    I was very surprised with this book. Well written and excellently narrated!
