    A handful of people. From different backgrounds, living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common - except fear. Deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, a dark memory called out to them, drawing them to the Tranquility Motel - where the terrifying truth was waiting.

    Barry F. Stinson says: "Brilliant"
    "Good story!"
    Overall

    Not really a big Koontz fan but I have to say I really enjoyed this story. The characters seemed to more flesh and blood than is typically the case with Koontz stories. The pace of the story was perfect and the conclusion was great. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for good adventure.

    For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

    Joseph says: "Amazing, powerful book about America."
    "extrordinary!!"
    Overall

    One of the best books I've read in years. This is the first Neil Gaiman I read and have since read every one I could get my hands on. Great story, great narration by George Guidall.

    In 1349, one small town in Germany disappeared and was never resettled. Tom, a contemporary historian, and his theoretical-physicist girlfriend, Sharon, become interested. By all logic, the town should have survived, but it didn't. Why? What was special about Eifelheim that it utterly disappeared more than 600 years ago?

    Andrew says: "Poignant, Profound, Absorbing and deeply moving."
    "Interesting but..."
    Overall

    Obviously the author put a lot of effort into researching this book and it shows. Problem is the two halves of this story seemed like they were forced to work together not like they were meant to. I really enjoyed the relationship between the priest and the "pilgrims", but the story of the scientist couple seemed like it was stuck on as an afterthought. The scientist couple had the feel of paper dolls on sticks with author hiding below the stage and talking out of the side of his mouth to get their lines in. Zero depth.

    It's hard to write a review for this book. In short there are two simultaneous stories here. One of them is good and the other is terrible! If that make any sense.

    A generation has passed since the Change that rendered technology inoperable around the world, and western Oregon has finally achieved a degree of peace. But a new threat has risen in Paradise Valley, Wyoming. A man known as the Prophet presides over the Church Universal and Triumphant, teaching his followers to continue God's work by destroying the remnants of technological civilization they encounter - and those who dare use them.

    Michael says: "Change is not always good, but this book is."
    "Am I missing something?"
    Overall

    I've never reviwed a book on Audible untill now but I just can't let this slide. I've tried twice now to listen to this book and cant get passed the first 2 or 3 hours without being torn between laughing out loud feeling insulted. If you can wrap your mind around the concept of a takeover of the world by ren fair junkies spouting elvish to each other, swinging swords and thee and thoing each other all over the place within (acording to the authors timeline) less than 20 years of all our machines breaking down. In which time they have constructed elaborate monarchies and religions fought several wars (and don't forget speaking elvish) and basically reverted to a Dungeons and Dragons version of midieval England maybe just maybe there is a story in there. It's beyond me but good luck!

    Sorry for the rant.
