Publisher's Summary

A troubled man's quest to uncover the secrets of his past leads to a chilling discovery. Tormented by guilt after the death of his fiancé, John Timmons lives life in a fog, retreating to his mountain cabin after work. While out hiking, a reflection catches his eye and he spots a small object sitting on a log in a nearby river. After a torturous journey down a ravine, he retrieves the object. It is mostly unremarkable but is engraved with the strange phrase "Project Daf Yasfhat." From this moment forward, John's life and those around him are never the same.

The reviews are correct...listen to this book!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Device to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version. This version is wonderful however.

Who was your favorite character and why?

John TImmons truly grows on the listener, and you end up caring for him, his life and family, and what happens to him really does matter. That alone is unusual.

What does Kurt Feldner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The day to day experience of living with the device, and the drama of learning more about it.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Life is Rarely as it seems .

Any additional comments?

This is a remarkable audio book. In my top 10 of the year. Never quite knew where they were going with the story, and a satisfying resolution. HIGHLY recommended, and big call out to the other reviewers who moved me to grab it. Well, WELL worth the credit, and the time.

Interesting concept

Would you listen to The Device again? Why?

Yes I would listen again. The story kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what was coming next.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It sure did! The plot took unexpected turns and I could relate to the characters. I was emotionally connected.

Have you listened to any of Kurt Feldner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first performance of Kurt Feldner I have listened to. I will definitely listen to another! The way he changed his voice to match the characters was amazing. I could picture each person in the story visually according to the voice change.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have loved to listen to this book in one sitting but due to time constraints I was unable to do so.

Any additional comments?

With this being the first audio book I have ever had, I was impressed. I would love to have a sequel to this book with Kurt narrating. I loved the book and would highly recommend this to everyone. I look forward to more books written by Patrick Skelton and narrated by Kurt Feldner, they make a great duo.
