A working mom that loves to read but has not time to sit and enjoy a good story...so I listen and LOVE stories of ...
yes...i was curious about the next turn of events and hopeful that I knew what would happen next...but still on edge not sure if I had it right...captivating
The supernatural events were so overblown and unbelievable, they came off as silly A script for a B movie or worse.
Mr. King reads well and his accent fit the character and setting well.
Disgusted -- a chaotic and ultimately very disappointing book.
Don't waste your time.
No, because I generally only listen to audio books one time.
I liked that he never stopped loving his wife, even though he was clearly attracted to Maddie Devor.
When Mike finally sees his wife near the end and knows she's been with him all along.
Extreme? Not really, but it was a great story and had its funny moments. I especially liked Mike Noonan's inner dialog, which I felt added a lot to the story's movement.
I would highly recommend this book to any Stephen King fan!
Not really. It wasn't suspenseful or scary at all. I was interested enough to want to get through it, but not necessarily in a good way. It was more like a chore than a pleasure.
mediocre, stereotypical, lackluster
I wish Mr. King would have done his research on mask court reporters. He totally misrepresented the trade.
I have listened to a number of Stephen King books, but this is the first time I heard him read the story himself. His voice was a bit of a shock initially, then it grew on me and I thoroughly enjoyed the New England accent. The story kept me in suspense the whole way through, I was even thinking about it before I went to sleep at night, which probably led to the scary dreams. It is rare for me to think of characters and why they are behaving in a certain way, this book had me trying to figure out the people. The interview with Mr. King at the end of the book was both funny and satisfying. I understand why the author loves this book, because I do to!
I guess the closest I would be able to come would be Duma Key, because the characters tell you how they are feeling, even when the feelings are awful, scary and disgusting.
Michael Noonan. Believable as a human being, A male human being.
Made me angry at one point, when one of the characters died. I started yelling at the ipod.
I enjoyed this book so much that I actually contemplated writing a letter to Mr. King to tell him how much pleasure this book gave me.
Having Stephen King narrate makes this story sizzle. A wonderfully slow, lazy, well crafted build to a truly creepy story where the ghost(s) are not the most frightening characters. It is the nuanced language, the depth of human insight and pacing that makes this story truly captivating. Worth ever second.

Best performance yet-
Mr. King should narrate all of his books his voice is the perfect compliment to his character development. No one can make me dislike a characters better..
On a scale of 1 to 10 this is a 10; excellent book
Mike Noonan Even though he was really creeped out and afraid of the ghosts and voices that he heard in Sarah Laughs sometimes; he preserved with his dead wives help until he was able to figure out why his house was haunted. And he was able to put the ghosts to rest.
yes I was very impressed with the reading done by the author and would love to listen to more books that are read by Stephen King
I highly recommend this book to everyone
I haven't read the print version but I think it probably would be.
Jo's brother. His part was small but great. He brought both warmth and humor to the story.
He seemed to perfectly embody the main character. In general, I like it when the author reads the book.
