Big fan of S. King. Heard in an interview that King did not like this story, but I think it is one of his best. The relationship between friends young and old, threw the good and bad was the best part. will read/listened again soon!
yes, the performance is terrific
the story is about in the middle of most King stories.
New England Accent!
seriously? this is a Stephen King story!

Well put together, lovable (and despicable) characters, this book touches on many subjects dear to the grownup's heart, including the breaking down of the body, the sheer exuberance of youth, new friends, those new friends becoming old friends, and losing touch with those dearest to you, and even the guilt we feel when we learn that someone dear to us has died. A powerful and moving novel, from a man known for powerful and moving novels. Jeffrey DeMunn's performance was excellent, though sometimes the New England accent became a little grating, and his portrayal of Kurtz was so spot-on that it led me to add a quote to my memorable quotes list from a character that I had previously liked, but found relatively unremarkable.
The story is very good. A little confusing at first because it skips around a lot, but after the first two or three chapters its makes since. This book has a very interesting story and an ending that is fits like a feather on a dreamcatcher :).
The audio recording its self is alright. Between the parts there is an interruption of music and a change of reader, which I find distracting. And every now and again the audio book skips and is laggy. Other then that its ok.
