“The plot twists engaging, often chilling book.”—The New York Times Book Review

A writer in California. A doctor in Boston. A motel owner and his employee in Nevada. A priest in Chicago. A robber in New York. A little girl in Las Vegas. They’re a handful of people from across the country, living through eerie variations of the same nightmare.

A dark memory is calling out to them. And soon they will be drawn together, deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, where the terrifying truth awaits...

This was an awesome keep you on the edge of you seat story. Everytime I think I figured it out something the next cd blows my theory. My first but definitely not my last Dean Koontz book. Thanks DEAN!!!

I was very disappointed that I wasted so many hours listening to this book. I was extremely long and extremely drawn out. After all the time I spent listening I had expected the ending to be worth it, but it was not. I would not recommend wasting time on this book.

This was by far the "worst book" I have ever listened to !!!!!! it is pure rubbish. No plot just some dragging on and on the description of "the moon" Honestlys if I hear this "moon" business again I will throw up. Not only did I not want to listen to hours and hours of people feeling frightened, it was never-ending. He dragged and dragged the plot. Boring, uninteresting and stupid. I will never ever buy any of his books again. Dumb and Dumber. I wish I could return this but since i could not I struggled through it.. a waste of a credit. Goodbye Dean Koontz and good luck. !!!!!!!!!!!

I loved this book, and after only about 20 mins I got used to, and enjoyed the narration and the narrator. Great characters that are slowly exposed to the listener and the story unfolds as fine threads of the plot connect all the charachters leading to the climactic event that is evident in all the Koontz novels I've read to date. If you like Koontz, you'll love Strangers and the audiobook and narrator are also great! I highly recommend it!

The reviews of this book seem to be either hate it or love it. I am in between the two. I am a big fan of Dean's work, I love the way he entertains you while, simultaneously conveying a moral message. Some of his passages are so terrific I add them to my collection of quotes and reread them from time to time. Regarding Strangers, I like the book, the story and the characters are terrific. The problem is the first half of the book is way too long. I found myself saying "O.K. I get it can we move on now?" If I were reading it, I really do not think I could have made it through the first half of the book. Had the first half been much shorter I would have given the book 4 or 5 stars. Bottom line, if you are a fan of Dean's work, by all means, listen to Strangers. If you are new to Dean, do not start out with Strangers, Dean has written many books that are far superior.

I tried twice to listen to this book and it is so bad that I couldn't get through the first CD either time. I recently made a cross country trip in my car and this was the last audio book I had and I still couldn't follow it. It was so boring I ended up going without rather than listen to it drone on and on.

I loved this book when it first came out in the 80's. The narrator really brings the characters to life. I have enjoyed listening even more than I did reading.

Excellent book which really makes you think about the many intersections in life with other people. I highly recommend this I was on the edge of my car seat on more than one occasion. I liked the detail about the main characters and how they supported each other in the midst of the turmoil.
