I picked this one because of the great reviews. Nothing about it upon first glance would be something I would typically be drawn to otherwise. Thank you previous reviewers! I'm so glad I gave it a chance because it was an absolute riviting listen. A++++++
I read this book in college and thought I would give it another listen. So glad I did. I loved it even more the second time.
While Koontz can be a little wordy at times, this one was a pleasent surprise. Less rambling, more story, the characters were likeable and the premise of time travel was quite interesting.
wow! What a great story...well told...well narated. I thought the subject matter was going to make this a really "odd" book but it was such an amazing story and it was so much more than the description suggests. Get it, you won't be disappointed!
Maybe I love David Sedaris so much because I can see pieces of my family in his stories. This is life delivered with a brilliant satirical wit. If you are "PC", it's not for you but if you have an appreciation for witty storytelling, go for it!
The story itself was 5 stars but the narration was annoying to say the least. Frank Muller sounds as if he's doing his best overdramatic mockery of bad theater. With over-zealous annunciation and horribly mistimed dramatic pauses, its a good thing the book was gripping. I probably would not have gotten thru it otherwise.
Loved it. I have no idea how anyone with even an ounce of appreciation for a well written novel wouldn't enjoy Stephen King...period. Even if it was a grocery list, his stories ARE in the details. Duma Key and the The Stand are, by far, my favorites but this one is definitely worth a listen.
