The lights are on in Snowfield, California, a cozy ski village nestled in the Sierra Madres, but nobody seems to be home. When Dr. Jenny Paige returns to the small town, she finds tables set for dinner, meals being prepared, and music playing in living rooms, but there's no trace of the people who put the water on to boil or set an extra place for company at the dinner table. As she explores the town, Paige finds friends and neighbors felled by a mysterious force--the bodies show no visible signs of violence or disease, and no known plague kills victims before the ice in their dinner drinks has time to melt. But the deep quiet that surrounds her offers few clues about the fate of the town's inhabitants. Dean Koontz's Phantoms strikes fear in readers from the very beginning. The mystery deepens, paving the way for a chilling journey toward the truth. If you plan to catch the film version, starring Ben Affleck and Peter O'Toole, remember that you'll be experiencing this terrifying story in a dark theater. So bring an arm to grab!

BookLender review by Alexander on 2009-06-10 17:06:10

This book would probably have gotten 5 stars from me except for the awful narration. Come on, who employees an audio book narrator with an extremely bad lisp. Thee Thells Thee Thells by the Thee T****. I don't mean to be disrespectful of people with speech impetiments, but should they really be narrating books? If you can get over never hearing the letter s being annunciated properly, then you can probably listen to this as I did. Otherwise, you may want to read it instead. Or watch the movie, I'm told the movie follows the book closely, but I haven't had a chance to validate that.
