First, I have to say Mare Winningham was an excellent narrator. The story took a little time to wind up, but as with many Stephen King journeys, it was worth the wait.
I stopped reading SK in the 90s his books just got a bit to gory for me. I recently started reading SK again, and was pleasantly surprised that Mr King started using his extraordinary story crafting skills. My recent favorite is 11.23.63 but this book took over that spot and moved to my new favorite. I didn't think SK wrote love stories, and I don't read love stories, but this is a beautiful love story that can only be crafted by SK. I will be adding this book to my favorite re-listens. Do not let Love Story description put you off, there is so much more depth in this story than JUST A LOVE STORY. So stop reading this review and get this book
NOT what I would've EVER expected from Stephen King!! AMAZING!!! Mare Winningham was PERFECT narrator!!!!
King always finds a way to make me feel like I'm sitting right in front of his stories, watching them for myself. bravo again! the narrator was wonderful, absolutely thrilled with this book.
I cannot praise Ms Winningham enough. Her artfulness with the quirky language immersed me into Character in the first pages.
This King selection explores relationship as , perhaps, never before.
An avid Stephen King fan, this was not one of my favorites but still a good story overall. The narration however was remarkable. Ms. Winningham's narration is one I will seek out going forward.
Loved this book. Sat in the car not willing to turn it off. The story is a beautiful love story with a scary, creepy underbelly. The characters and settings are vibrant and real. I was scared. And I cried at the end.
