While The Listeners is not the best piece of literature ever written, it is entertaining, even though at times I was thinking, I can't believe I'm reading this. But I suspended disbelief as all good readers do and I delved in and came out a happier reader. If you have any qualms with reptiles, time travel, mind melding, or twin studies, this is not the book for you. If you like a bit of the sci-fi along with the detective edge, take a peek.

McFadden was born in New York City in 1955, but grew up in California. He attended college briefly before dropping out and working various jobs such as house painting and computer programming.

A Tom Doherty Associates book. The Listeners, however, have tapped into an ancient evil intent on remaking all of mankind into its own horrifying image.

I love Christopher Pikes books. The Tachyon Web is about a group of teenagers from Earth who set out on an adventure to blast beyond the 'Tachyon Web', which is a sort of wall created by the galaxy government to keep people inside it's boundaries. The protaganist of the story doesn't really want to go, but is talked into it by his smooth talking friend.

Having previously read two outstanding books by Christopher Pike, "The Cold One" and "The Season of Passage", I eagerly picked up "The Listeners", thinking that I was getting another great read. Wrong! This book, while it has its moments, pales in comparison.

The book gets off to a promising start, and the premise of the book is pretty straight forward. An FBI agent, David Connor, reeling from a bust gone bad, is asked to go undercover as a magazine reporter and investigate a channeling group called the Listeners, who channel an entity called the "Big Mind" which is a sort of collective consciousness, coupled with ancestral memory.

Central to the Listeners existence is a set of identical twins, Lucy and Vera Temple, beautiful, young women who possess great psychic ability. When David meets them, there develops a mutual attraction between David and Lucy, and they ultimately fall in love. Little do they know that a great evil is waiting for them. Something primeval is lurking below the conscious surface, ready to spring forth and rock their world. When it does so, David is called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice to save mankind. What happens at the end, however, is sure to surprise the reader.

I, like I imagine most people who have reviewed this book are, am a big fan of Christopher Pike. I grew up with them through my teens and am still re-reading now. So to put it bluntly I was prepared to like this novel. Unfortunately this is definitely one of Pike's worst, something which is all the more disappointing when we all know he's capable of real excellence.
The story revolves around David O'Connor, an FBI agent with a murky past who is sent to investigate a group of people who have, through deep mind regression discovered several of the government's secrets. Before long he finds himself to Lucy, one half of some twins in the group that are more dangerous than their appearances would have him think, whilst his boss sets about investigating the hidden secrets of group's founder Dr. Spear from his trip to Africa. Thus for a while we have Pike surfing through in easy mode, with a few jokes peppering a gentle story of attraction, explanation of the set-up and flashbacks to what haunts the characters. This is all well and good, but it's when he takes it to the next level and we learn of a super race of reptiles that ruled the Earth millions of years before Man appeared. This is something that Pike has explored before in books such as 'Scavenger Hunt', and it has rarely worked, and certainly doesn't here. The one scene where the scenario genuinely scares is in a visit to a woman who has drawn the creature into her and thrashes under her restraints in a mental asylum. It's such a pity that after that we're back to science-fiction mumbo-jumbo about how the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids and rapid turnarounds of character that sees hard-nosed David suddenly start believing that an evil reptile race can be invoked through identical twins.
To say this is an adult book is bizarre, as the only difference to his teen books (some of which are far more accomplised) is that there is a little swearing, but the violence is certainly no more offensive than in the 'Last Vampire' books. It's mostly that the idea is so ludicrous that many people will have trouble believing it, something which is a pity when Pike has such an obvious narrative flair. As such the book is easy to read and at times even quite gripping, but the fact that it neither convinces or really gels together pinpoints it as one of Pike's worst novels. If you're looking for his best try out the superb 'Road To Nowhere' or 'Die Softly', both of which are true originals.

This book was great! The begining was semi-boring, but got more interesting when FBI agent, David Conner, burned or rather melted Rudy Failla's, the head of a powerful Mafia family, [thing] with a lighter & later killed him. After that he'd been called "Dirty Dave", & sometimes avioded , if possible. David is one man who's been hurt numerous amounts of times, especially by death. Plus David could never seem to let go off his painful past. Whenever he let himself love someone they seemed to die. He decided to retire, but his boss, Ned Calendar, insists he do one last assignment that he promises will be a piece of cake for David. But Ned & David later discover this wasn't cake, but a job too hard for any human. While David is there he also falls in love with one of the red-headed twin sisters, that are a key to evil that's been cursed upon the human race. NOTE: I loved the ending, how Pike made it confusing so a nosey person, such as myself sometimes does, who peeks to the last few pages of the EPILOGUE, yet couldn't understand who the woman or man he was refering to. In the end of, The Listeners, all hope seems lost for David & the entire human race, but what David doesn't know is that the power of love can never be broken, nor beaten, even through death, the essence will still remain. I'd be very pleased if Pike made a sequel, yet i don't think there will be. This book i will read again & again, thanks to my favorite author & an inspiration to my own writing career. I recommend anyone willing to open their minds to the unknown should read this novel.*ENJOY!* ~{;)}-<-<
