Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This story is a mixture of a ghost story and a witch's tale. It starts out well but then turns into something resembling and episode of 'Charmed'. It remains mildly entertaining but not what I expected from the description.

What disappointed you about The Night Strangers?
The book was presented to readers as a ghost story novel with a creepy door leading to new and extended possibilities. That part had all of about... 30 minutes in the novel. The rest of the novel focused on a series of
What do you think your next listen will be?
Dean Koontz' 77 Shadow Street.
Which character – as performed by Mark Bramhall and Alison Fraser – was your favorite?
I actually really enjoyed the pilot (Chip). His narrative was compelling and interesting. Far better than any other character in this mess pile.
What character would you cut from The Night Strangers?
There is an entire subplot dealing with a cult member trying to have the pilot committed. This isn't a spoiler because nothing is made with this plot. In addition the cult member who is the psychologist is annoying and one dimensional. I would have loved to have seen this entire 3 hour waste of time removed.
Would you try another book from Chris Bohjalian and/or Mark Bramhall and Alison Fraser ?
Not sure. Maybe.
Would you recommend The Night Strangers to your friends? Why or why not?
Some folks may love it, I just found it distracting. First, there are two stories in the Night Strangers and in the end they just don't gel. One story is similar to the Shining and the other story is similar to Rosemary's baby. Had the book been more about the gardeners and herbalists (the Rosemary's baby story) then I would have enjoyed the audiobook more. Next, the pilot goes into so much detail about the plane crash, not once, not twice, but throughout the entire book. It was too much....a little non stop. I wish the author would have focused more time fusing the stories and less time on the detail and moment by moment playback of the crash.
Any additional comments?
Do not listen to this book if you will be on a plane in the near future.
