The Narrator is superb, truly threads life's blood into the story.
Lisey's Story takes listeners into a wonderworld. This novel is diverse and surprising. Widow Lisey, misses her deceased husband and writer, Scott. Also Lisey has sister issues...some of which eerily relate to her departed husband's past.
Scott Landon's prose came from an actual other world, (my supposition is a world possibly superimposed within our own) it is a dace-ingly dangerous, yet beautific and beneficent dome of existence.This is a mostly unknown place, few have the knack to access it.
This book gives real life glimpsed into utterly believable characters as they find themselves "lost", crazed, and hunted.
Also it is a very heartwarming tale...
Stephen King continues to amaze and surprise me with his ongoing wit and absolute nightmarish creepiosity.
Although I can appreciate the depth of imagination it took to create this story, I did not find myself truly engaged with the characters or their lives. I tired of the whole extended premise and the time it took to tell this tale.
You follow this story writer through the perils of creativity and the warmth of a great love story. A book I will surely listen to again.
I'm not a huge fan of the genre but Steven King has a way of touching home with whatever he writes. I laughed, cried and was afraid. The narration was spot-on. The whole book was an experience and I left feeling changed. An unfortunately rare experience in my opinion.
Very enjoyable & interesting. It got just a little bit too far out there at times but still very enjoyable. Mare Winningham is a great narrator, using just the right tones to portray the thoughts.
Absolutely superb story and stupendous performance. Haven't been so moved in years, heartbreakingly beautiful and terrifyingly real. An amazing portrait of marriage, familial relationships, and the power of belief.
It is in the top tier due to Mare Winningham's performance.
The combination of a woman;s story by Stephen King and Mare Winningham
All of it. The reading is amazing. Mare as the young boy is just heartbreaking.
I wouldn't change it.
This purchase was definitely worth my coin and time. Thank you Audible!
I think the audio book may be the better way to experience this story. This book is King's love letter to American idioms and the narrator allows you to experience not only the words themselves, but also the unique pronunciations and sounds. Her performance allows the listener to experience the rich flavors of the Appalachian dialect. It's a wonderful book made all the more special by Marriott Winningham's performance.
