False MemoryFalse Memory by Dean Koontz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Plot. Marty and her best friend Susan are regularly seeing a shrink. You’ll learn the shrink is a devious serial maniac who is altering their minds and has done it before many times. But this is just a side act. The shrink is working for an underground bunch of bad guys who want to destroy the country – all the way to the top of the pyramid – the US President.

IMO, it takes too long to get beyond the women thinking they are just crazy. You’ll find yourself muttering, “Come on, I get it.” Well over 1/2 of the book is set up. Koontz is a good writer, but this story is ridiculously verbose. Once you arrive at the basic story, it moves along. Stick with it; the beginning is very tedious and may put you to sleep.

Narration is great, and yes – Koontz does include the Golden Retriever – adorable, as always – but not as a significant character.

Written by Dean Koontz, narrated by Stephen Lang, about 21 hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format, and released in April 2007 by Random House Audio.

Recommended, but … Koontz has better stuff.
