Breathless
by Dean Koontz

A page turner involving multiple people in several western states who have extraordinary experiences on the same day. The story jumps back and forth telling the stories of these strangers and continually introducing more characters who have bizarre experiences. You have read most of the book, and you wonder how Koontz can tie it all together in the few remaining pages. He pulls it off.

A mathematician character gives a refutation of evolution based on their not being enough time for evolution to have produced an earthworm since the big bang. Good stuff.

Year Read: 2010
