If I were allowed to, I would rate this book on tape a 10! It is the VERY BEST book on tape I've ever heard, bar none.
Never have I heard a better reader. My mother (now deceased) and I listened to this book on tape over and over. And we had a collection of over 300 books on tape. Always we returned to listen to this particular on a regular basis.
For chills, thrills, the unexpected and surprises, this cannot be beat. Mr. Koontz's books will remain mesmerizing for decades upon decades!
