Strangers | [Dean Koontz]

Strangers

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.

Publisher's Summary

They were strangers.....
A handful of people, from different backgrounds, living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common - except fear.

They were victims....
Cold and stark, an unknown terror gripped their dreams and turned their days into living nightmares.

They were chosen....
And they could not escape. 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.

©2008 Dean Koontz; (P)2008 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"With its masterful blend of elements of espionage, terror, and even some science fiction, Strangers may be the suspense novel of the year." (Library Journal)
"The plot twists ingeniously...chilling." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "Not the best"

    I have read/listened to many of Dean Koontz' stories and this one left me a little disappointed. This story is long, the character development keeps going and going and going. This really wasn't the bad part of the story for me though. I was a little disappointed in the ending of the story. After spending many hours listening to character development, I wanted a little more excitement at the end. This story just didn't seem to have that. Instead of continuing to build, the story just seemed to fade away. This story is okay at best. If you are new to Koontz, you might want to try another story first.

    "Saw it coming EARLY..."

    Great character development and that might also be the problem with this book. It's a long listen (which I like) but you get to a point (early on) that you are ready to move on. This book does not.

    In one of my favorite listens, The Pillars of the Earth, which is over 40 hours long, you never get bored, it constantly moves forward and it's hard to see what's "around the next curve". Alas, it is not the case here.

    I enjoyed the characters, the vocalization and the theme, but when the book ended you wish you were on the 25th chapter of a 50 chapter book and had got there about 10 hours earlier...

    Bottom line, it's been done before and better.

    "Median Koontz"

    A really good Koontzian mystery cum sci-fi thriller, though it does not live up to earlier works in the character development department. See Christopher Snow (Fear Nothing, Seize the Night) for example.

    "A pretty good story, ruined by the reader."

    This was a good story, and I would probably have enjoyed it, but I found the reader very annoying. His attempts at acting were not appreciated. His female voices came across as simpering, even the strong women characters.

    "narrator speed"

    I was having trouble with the Narration at first, but I changed the speed on my Ipod to the quickest and it made all the difference!
