"A dual reading by Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan heightens the drama in a way the written word could never achieve. With this narrative choice, readers receive a clear, strong and effective audio horror story which is just about impossible to stop listening to." ( The Bookwatch)

NEW AGE MUSIC IS FOR THOSE WHO FIND ELEVATOR MUSIC
ONE OF THE VIRTUES OF THE DEAD WAS PATIENCE.
I am Mr. Impatience and I almost gave out during the first two hours. The first two hours describes a car accident, but it is described in poetry form. The colorful, flowery words, served mostly to draw out a 15 minute event into two hours. After that things got a lot better. The story got more interesting with a very unusual bad guy and the poetry stopped. The bad guy is the star of the show and you want to stay long enough to hear about his childhood and how he started killing.
THE DEAD STAY DEAD AND THE LIVING ONLY WANT TO JOIN THEM
I am a Koontz fan and some of his books will live in my mind forever. I enjoyed this book as I listened to it, but I guarantee you that a month from now, I will not, without some help, remember the story line of this book. It has been a couple of days and I had to read my notes to remember what it was about. This was written in 1992, as Koontz was coming out of his boring, preachy books and moving more into suspense. There is some preaching in this and some interesting questions about death. If you can get this on sale, I would say go ahead, but I would not waste a credit.
Kramer and Read have been around for a while, but before them there was Hanson and Cowen. They have done a lot of books together and most of them are on tape. Anytime you get a chance to hear them, you should take it, they make all books better.

Another nail-biter from Koontz
If you could sum up Hideaway in three words, what would they be?
Hang on tight.
What did you like best about this story?
The complete development of the characters.
What about Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan ’s performance did you like?
The ability to pronounce words most of us would trip on. They never missed a beat as their pacing was excellent.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The pre-adoption meeting.
Any additional comments?
As always, Koontz is a master of suspense and you never know what's around the next corner.
