I picked up "Johnny" as a daily special, not knowing anything the author or the story line, except that it was sci-fi. I was blown-away by the psychological intensity of the story set in current day Oklahoma and New Mexico and points in-between. The metaphorical descriptions were intriguing and the pacing of the writing was excellent for each episode. The author makes frequent use of first-person narration by the main characters that shares with the reader their most intimate thoughts and backstory. The main premise of the story -- telepathic aliens arriving sporadically around the planet with vague intentions -- was not well developed but the reader was obliged to figure it out along with the human characters. Only at the very end is some closure given to the human characters who survive. The action in the book was often very graphic and anxiety-inducing, so I would not recommend it for bed-time listening. If you enjoy the psycho-sociological sci-fi stories of Ursula K. Leguin or C.J. Cherryh. you will likely enjoy this book.
