Could have been good. Turned out very unlikable.

This could have been a good episode. The basic "stopwatch" story idea should suit the Twilight Zone format perfectly.

So why do I rate it so low?
For one - the voice acting. Lou Diamond Phillips is usually a good voice actor, but here he is just a maniacal, cackling, unlikable idiot. His character may be just that, but Philips makes him so one dimensional, that listening to his cackling monologue for 45 minutes is painful. Supporting cast is not much better (apart for Keach). Hearing the obviously young female actors using baad "old lady voices" makes me cringe.

Was there no producer/director for this episode?

"" EXCELLENT IN MANY WAYS""

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The twilight zone is the best television series that grasps your imagination and takes you on a joy ride through the mind of Rod Serling. The same suspense is there as the TV series. I love it and i will definately be using audible

What other book might you compare A Kind of Stopwatch to and why?

I would compare it to the other twilight books because they are all on the same level

Which scene was your favorite?

When the watch was broken an everyone around the man with the watch was frozen in time.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

FROZEN IN TIME
