Without a doubt, this is Dean Koontz's best novel. Characters are memorable, plot is great, and the book is just un-put-downable!

Several people, seemingly unknown to each other, suffer unusual and terrifying symptoms. They are somehow drawn together and discover the truth behind what they endured.

This book was truly gripping - I absolutely loved it. I was so involved in the book that when it ended I was disappointed - not because it ended poorly (it ended in a manner that I enjoyed) but because the story was just so good I didn't want it to end.

Strangers is a story about friendship, inner strength and survival. Dean Koontz weaves a complex tale filled with many colorful characters.

(There are nine main characters and two sub-characters to keep track of in this lengthy novel).

A roadside motel and its neighboring diner are the main backdrop for the story, but Mr. Koontz manages to take us coast to coast as the plot unfolds. Somehow, a group of complete strangers seems connected though none can remember ever having met. The roadside motel is the common factor each of the characters share.

The book moves at a very good pace. The 698-page length seemed like 300 pages. I could not put the book down. I read the Berkley paper back, which contains a nice afterward from the author, the afterward proved insightful and humorous as does most of Mr. Koontz comments.

I highly recommend this novel.
