The year is 1967. Malcolm Pomerantz is twelve, geeky and socially awkward, while his seriously bright sister, Amalia, is spirited and beautiful. Each is the other's best friend, united by a boundless interest in the world beyond their dysfunctional parents' unhappy home. But even the troubled Pomerantz household will seem to be a haven compared to the house next door, after an enigmatic and very secretive new neighbor takes up residence in the darkest hours of the night.

Would you listen to The Neighbor again? Why?

I wouldn't mind reading this story again. Dean Koontz's imagination is alway extraordinary and he uses it to create a short story that impels you to listen to the whole story without stopping. Simple concept, simple carry out of the concept, a definite winner.

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked the casual way Dean gets you into a harrowing story before you know it.

What does Malcolm Hillgartner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator has a perfect voice for this story, you can imagine the character that goes with the voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did not have an extreme reaction to the book, I just enjoyed the intrigue.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended for Dean Koontz fans.
