Summary

You see him at PTA meetings, selling peanuts for Kiwanis, mowing his lawn. Michael Louden is your ever-so-average nice guy, your neighbor, your friend - except he wants to kill you and your family and your dog. He's the next door serial psycho, Jack the Ripper in Willy Loman's well-shined shoes - and John Wayne Gacy in his clown costume. And he's not alone. Michael Louden and others like him, Strangers, are just waiting for their moment of history - to destroy any hope of the future. "The Strangers offers one of the most unsettling and true representations of evil that you're likely to experience in a horror novel." -From the Introduction by Marc Paoletti

The Strangers, Mort Castle's 1984 cult classic of hard driving horror, is back in this audiobook version. This wonderfully creepy, yet disturbing, tale will have you looking around at your friends, family, and neighbors in a way you never suspected. The Strangers has been optioned by Whitewater Films in 2005.

A little long, perhaps...

A good story over all. Well narrated. I felt like the premise was well established early on and too much of the book was devoted to the main character's disintegrating self-control. I was ready for the climax, either the time of the Strangers or a confrontation with them. There was a nice little twist at the end which I really should have seen coming. I'd like to read a sequel that explores the uprising of the Strangers and society's struggle with them and the aftermath. Also, it might answer the question of why it is that the majority of the Strangers accept one another...
