An Oldy But Goody

  • Jun 24, 2010
I've always been a reader and after watching the movie, Watchers, I had to read the book. Then it started me into the world of Dean Koontz, yet when I found the book Strangers, I think I have found my favorite of all time.

This book talks about a number of different people from all walks of life, a doctor, a novelist, single-mother, sophisticated thief, and a priest.  All of these people's lives have suddenly taken on strange occurrences from sleepwalking to healing people and they go on a search to find out what happened to begin everything.

Although there are a number of main characters in this novel, it doesn't leave the reader confused, yet leave them guessing on how possibly could the things happening to these people all be related.

The ending leaves the reader in awe and wondering. Could the whole premise of the novel actually happen.

What did you think of this review?
