James Patterson does it again!

The Lake HouseThe Lake House by James Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Lake House is the follow up to When the Wind Blows, a truly magical tale. The story opens with the inevitable court/custody battle between Kit and Franny and the parents of the winged children. Of course in true Patterson style, there are several layers of subplot and evil doers lurking around every corner. There was one flaw - a confrontation in the story was a little too neatly resolved.

Narrators can make or break an audiobook. I've abandoned them in the past just because the narrator wasn't good. This audiobook has two narrators - the female narrator, Hope Davis, does most of the audio book, while a male, Stephen Lang, does the mad scientist in the story. Both are great to listen to, bringing the talk alive.

I enjoyed this audiobook so much that I would arrive at my destination (work or home) and steal just a few minutes to listen to more. Definitely highly recommended for audiobook listeners.
