This book was to Dean Koontz as "The Stand" was to Stephen King. His one and only. I am not comparing Koontz to King, Koontz writes about goofy or pure evil and drives me crazy using words like Macadam when he could say pavement, and his knowledge about firearms is nonexistant, usually throwing in at least one Golden Retriever(I use my Kindle dictionary a lot with Mr. Koontz), King writes of pure evil and goes on from there. King is also more versatile, but both write books I love to read. "The Stand" is the only book I have ever read more than five times and never gets old. If I live long enough I will surely revisit "Strangers" and "The Stand again. It is Koontz crowning achievement. I won't tell you a thing about the plot, read it and you will thank the goofy old man recently moved from Kansas to Utah and think well of me for recommending "Strangers" by Dean Koontz to you.
The last author I wrote about was Jeffry S. Hepple and his books chronicling the saga of a Revolutionary War family, they moved and entertained me, and of course, "The Stand", the best book I ever read. "Strangers" is great and could be classic. One of the top ten books I have read. Enjoy, Fredt
Rereading Strangers was like running into old friends at a bar and spending the night talking and reliving the past. All of the characters and development are perfect and you will finish the book wanting to go back to the bar the next night hoping your friends will be there again.
