I'm 30 years old, from the east coast of America, and my favorite books are realistic, but stretch the truth and the laws of physics.
Yes! I'd recommend it if I knew someone who either just adored Stephen King, or was a writer, at any stage of their career at all.
This is a realistic, yet encouraging account of what a writer's life can be like, and some of the knowledge that a writer will need to reach their full potential, and it comes straight from the source of one who lives off of his writing. King's taking on the reading of the audiobook himself turned out to be a good thing, as I can't imagine anyone knowing what tone to use when, and where to place emphasis in such a personal story's narration more than the writer himself. King understands his memories and life lessons better than any other narrator could, and he brings a sense of who he is to his words. A warm, entertaining, educating, and thoughtful read.
