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.
NOTHING, THE STORY DRAGS ON AND ON AND IS VERY IRRITATING.
I ENJOYED HER PERFORMANCE.
TERRIBLE BOOK. SKIP THIS ONE.
Love books, listen to 3-4 books a week, thriller and true crimes favorite.
put this one a way several times just couldn't get into it. king gets a pass on this.
The book was long but the twists and turns were very interesting.
I am not sure I can pick one. As I recall, I found the ending strange. It almost did not make sense but that is stephen king for you.
I loved her voice and no i have not listened to any of her other performances.
No it was not...Way to long for one sitting.
This wasn't a typical King story. He has written so many great books that I have truly enjoyed. It was however worth the money and I enjoyed reading it.
My favorite King will forever be my first, I read The Shinning in one long sitting. This is a very close second. No one writes...hell THINKS the things he can write so masterfully!
I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.
So well written. Fascinating in its portrayal of the main character. I have no idea how he comes up with his descriptions, but they are so well written that you can visualize what he is describing. I really liked this book. The real and the imagined are so well integrated. Bravo.
