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.

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 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 execution 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
