Publisher's Summary

Everything is familiar. But everything has changed.

Coming back to the little community is like walking into a nightmare for Jim Gardener, poet, drunk, potential suicide.

It all looks the same: the house; the furniture; Jim's friend, Bobbi; her beagle (though ageing); even the woods out at the back. But it was in the woods that Bobbi stumbled over the odd, part-buried object and felt a peculiar tingle as she brushed the soft earth away.

Everything is familiar. But everything is about to change.

    Story
    "A scifi tale of love and back-door invasion"

    Loved listening to this. Easy to relate to the many characters, the elements of love and romance - told as a backdrop to the superb scifi tale.

    Story
    "a very long drag..."

    A well written but a weak story ... long and meandering. I've listened to a lot of audiobooks and it was tough staying the course. It was however well read.

    "Original story but goes on a bit"

    I love King's older books and this one is better than I remembered. Saying that, I did find the ending went on and on and on. Definitely worth listening to though.
