  • "Not just for aspiring authors."

    Overall

    Story

    This book is loosely broken into two portions; the first half is more auto-biographical, outlining Stephen King's childhood and life, and the second half delves more into writing itself. I genuinely and thoroughly enjoyed both sides of the book.

    I thought his outlooks were honest and intelligent, and he rarely gives opinions that masquerade as facts; he just gives his thoughts, acknowledging all the while they are simply opinions and preferences he has as an individual. That said, they are extremely educated opinions and gave a great deal of insight.

    I'm not an aspiring author myself, but I love the written word and I love listening to smart people - and this book satisfied on both fronts. It was like a great visit with this smart man, and I was sorry when I reached the end.

    "Stephen King at his best...."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What does Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It just doesn't get any better than this. Imagine the master of his craft giving a glimpse into the mind that created such perfection as The Stand, 'Salem's Lot, Needful Things, and my personal favorites; Misery and Dolores Claiborne.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Nothing at all!


    Any additional comments?

    This is *the* book for anyone interested in writing.

  • "The best kind of audiobook!"

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    This is the best kind of audiobook. Read by the author, great story, insightful, and playful. And, of course, dark at times - come on, it's Steven King! Best quote: “Life isn't a support system for art. It's the other way around."The part about his intervention is incredibly moving. Steven King's life is an incredible gift he's given the world.

From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 through Utah Beach, Market-Garden, the Bulge, and Hitler's Eagle's Nest, WWII historian Stephen Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company.

    This landmark book is for those of us who prefer words to equations; this is the story of the ultimate quest for knowledge, the ongoing search for the secrets at the heart of time and space. Its author, Stephen W. Hawking, is arguably the greatest mind since Einstein. From the vantage point of the wheelchair, where he has spent the last 20 years trapped by Lou Gehrig's disease, Professor Hawking has transformed our view of the universe. A Brief History of Time is Hawking's classic introduction to today's most important scientific ideas.

    These days, English professors prefer to teach anything and everything but classic English literature. They indoctrinate their students in Marxism and radical feminism, show them Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, and teach them the "post-colonial literature" of South Asia. When they do teach a genuine work of English or American literature, they use it to propagandize against our "oppressive" Western culture.
