There are few things better than a good story well told!
What happened to the rest of the book? There's only one story here. Disappointed.
Yes. But where are the other 11?
Celeste. She is a strong female and full of faith in good.
Never heard him before.
If all the book was there.
When I first read the synopsis of this book, it listed not only the title story "Strange Highways" but also many other short stories. I was disappointed when the title story ended and more did not follow. "Strange Highways" was good but not Koontz best work. It was somewhat tedious and did not fully keep my attention. While I still recommend this book, I caution the Audible buyer to focus on reviews of the audio book so that they are not disappointed when all of the short stories listed in other reviews do not follow the title story.
I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
This book does not include the short stories originally published under this title.
The story itself is not the best of Koontz. It has quite a few weakness I don’t usually see in Koontz books. It is among the most blatantly religious of his novels, with characters weaker than usual, a plot that is a bit too straightforward and plot twists that were reminiscent of video games. I very rarely find myself arguing with Koontz’s choices (as I do with most other authors in this genre) but several times I found myself drawn out of the story by the silliness of the action. Yet this is not really a bad book, the prose and imagery is better than most, but I won’t read it again though.
James Spader read the abridged version. Maybe 1995? I have it on tape. He did a great job. Even though it was abridged I like it much better.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
