The house looked right, felt right to Dr Louis Creed. Rambling, old, unsmart and comfortable. A place where the family could settle, the children grow and play and explore. The rolling hills and meadows of Maine seemed a world away from the fume-choked dangers of Chicago. Only the occasional big truck out on the two-lane highway, grinding up through the gears, hammering down the long gradients, growled out an intrusive threat. But behind the house and far away from the road: that was safe.

Tight written story. Orator was great, well paced with no music to ruin the effort. Will read again.

You'll lose a lot of sleep.... Ralph does. At first he starts waking up earlier. And earlier. Then the hallucinations start - the colours, shapes and strange auras. Not to mention the bald doctors who always turn up at the scene of a death. That's when Ralph begins to lose a lot more than sleep. When he begins to understand why his hitherto mild-mannered friend, Ed, is getting out of control - dangerously so. And why his hometown is about to become the new Armageddon....

One of the most jarring books i have read to this point. The story was excellent, the orator was supurb, but whoever injected that awful atmospheric music into this production should be fired. It was unnecessary, overwhelming and truly made listening to this story difficult. At parts it was so loud and obnoxious, I had to replay a sentence five times to hear the words clearly. Please consider this when planning your next production. No. More. Music.
