A Stranger is Watching
A Stranger is Watching is a terrific book. I enjoyed reading this book very much. The non-stop action kept
me reading for hours.
One of the best features of the book is how it was written.The point of view changes every
chapter.For example Chapter 1 is written in the point of view of the infamous Foxy character.Chapter 2 is
written in the point if view of our protagonist, Steve; and so on.I also liked how the author built the
relationship of the characters up,so you care about what happens to them and feel like you\'re going through
what they are going through.For instance,the author tells us of Steve\'s wife\'s death.We find out that Steve\'s
son, Neil was never the same after this tragedy.When a new women,Sharon comes into Steve\'s life,Neil
rejects her.Neil thinks that if Sharon and his father get married ,his father will send him away.When Neil
and Sharon are held hostage together, Neil\'s feelings for Sharon change;he begins to see her as a nice
person and a motherlike figure.I felt the author built this relationship up well so that the story would have a
I also like how the author made the character traits of the protagonist completely conflict with the
antagonist.The protagonist,Steve is a successful man with a family and no problems;at least in the mind of
the antagonist.The antagonist has problems with females,a career he feels is going nowhere,and a lack of
good friends.throughout the story we find out that the antagonist is very jealous of the protagonist\'s lifeand
that\'s why he indirectly targets him.This contrast was an addition to the already excitng plot of the story..
In my opinion the best part of "A Stranger is Watching"is the end,chapter 52.this chapter contains
one of the greatest climaxes I ever read.The chapter begins at a frantic moment.All of the characters lives
are at risk because Foxy\'s bomb is about to go off.After a fight with Foxy,Steve manages to release Sharon
and Neil.At the same time Ronald Thompson(a juvenile convicted if murder)is about to be executed for the
murder of Steve\'s wife,Nina.A few chapters earlier we find out that Nina is Foxy\'s victim but he got off
clean with it. Steve races out of Grand Central Station (where the bomb is going to go off)with Sharon and
Neil.At this point the author stops her narrative and begins with the time eleven forty-two,twelve minutes
after the bomb goes off,at this point we don\'t know what happened to our characters.In this next paragraph
we are informed that Steve,Neil ,and Sharon get away while Foxy dies from his own bomb.We also find
out that Ronald Thompson is saved from his ex!
ecution and released from prison.
I enjoyed this part of the story so much because it was the point of the highest excitement. Every
event that took place in the story built up to this major event.All excitement in the story was covered at this
point.I feel the climax is the best part of every story,and should be.This was definitely one of the best books
I have ever read.
