Disappointing Without The Short Stories
When I first read the synopsis of this book, it listed not only the title story "Strange Highways" but also many other short stories. I was disappointed when the title story ended and more did not follow. "Strange Highways" was good but not Koontz best work. It was somewhat tedious and did not fully keep my attention. While I still recommend this book, I caution the Audible buyer to focus on reviews of the audio book so that they are not disappointed when all of the short stories listed in other reviews do not follow the title story.

OK Koontz but Shorts not Included
This book does not include the short stories originally published under this title.
The story itself is not the best of Koontz. It has quite a few weakness I don’t usually see in Koontz books. It is among the most blatantly religious of his novels, with characters weaker than usual, a plot that is a bit too straightforward and plot twists that were reminiscent of video games. I very rarely find myself arguing with Koontz’s choices (as I do with most other authors in this genre) but several times I found myself drawn out of the story by the silliness of the action. Yet this is not really a bad book, the prose and imagery is better than most, but I won’t read it again though.
