It's easy to overlook the powers of concentration it takes to be a really great narrator. But imagine a lengthy novel with many diverse characters and loads of dialogue. Think of the hairpin turns a reader must make, slipping instantaneously from narrator to character to character and back again while keeping every one straight. Not only does Stephen Lang accomplish this feat in this creepy Koontz novel, he makes it almost impossible to believe that a single person is giving voice to all of these incarnations. Listeners know from the opening passages that they're in good hands, and can sit back and enjoy the suspense as a murderous, soulless man and the young boy he regards as his mortal enemy edge toward their inevitable confrontation.
