Good story ! True of life , people always want what they don't have , when they get it , the didn't need it at all. If you like twisted king books , you will enjoy this one.
The jolly music during intense scenes really ruin things. Also, it sounds like it is all played on a seriously low quality keyboard. Other than that, I really like the book, and Stephen King as a narrator. But the music is maybe the worst I have ever heard, both as music, and as an atmospheric device. Buyer beware.
I had to stop listening because a dog dies, not a bad book just not my jam.
Good story but the music was pointless.
The story and audio were good, but the music at the end of chapters keep me from rating it a five.
well written well read book. Good read not great
I’m not even done with the book, but I had to comment right now, because it’s so hard to get through. The narrator is so f**king boring. It’s like he doesn’t know how to change inflection in his voice, and he reads one giant long run on sentence for 25 hours. Way to ruin a book.
Story was great and I love when King narrates but this recording is garbage. There are lots of pops and cracks and at some points you can literally hear people talking in the background, and that’s not party of the fun sound effects and music just poor recording quality. There were some pretty oblivious spliced “dub fixes” just have him read it again with recording gear from this decade.
Great story. one of my favorites by King.
But the execution here was terrible. The narration was poorly directed to the point of distraction. Worse was the overlap of music in the audio. Music was played at the conclusion of every chapter and DURING narration of action sequences. A fight to the death should not be accompanied with the sounds of a carousel or carnival.
Good Work !
So much better then movie !!!
Stephen King loves telling stories, and you can tell by the performance/ narration. He tells the story as an old codger in the park. Hope the bench is comfortable. This is a long story, but good. WEIRD, but good.
great book!!! Steven King narrated this one for a reason! and I actually like the music it makes for a good stoping point
Stephen King at his most enjoyable. He does a great job with the narration.
Loved the movie and this book just brought those characters so much more life. Also in true King fashion it is so much creepier than the movie. So glad I picked it up.
A slow starter. Stephen give almost nauseating details that in the end all make the climax brilliant. At first hearing King read was also nauseating. And again as the story moves forward adds to the enjoyment of listening. Great book! Great Listen!!
The ending was wishy-washy. The story built up nicely, but was rushed to the end, as if King could not wait to move on to something else. Stephen King's narration was very good.
I have always liked this book, it’s a good story. For anyone contemplating purchasing this book please note: the complaints about the music track are not overblown. A two year old with a thrift store keyboard could have done a better job. It’s terrible.
I enjoyed the story and the narration is well done for the most part. My only complaint is that there are random bouts of background music which seem to come from nowhere and overtake the narration, especially during important scenes which would be much better if they were narrated without cheesy background music.
Exciting story with good narration . I liked the occasional music
Normally I love Stephen King. But this book...not so much. Found it to be very long and drawn out. He definitely took the long way around in this one. The music and sound effects were irritating. Not my favorite.
100% my favourite book ! A must read, so thrilling
Awesome story by a great author.
