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.
Love to walk and listen. Commute and listen. I typically enjoy well developed characters mixed with a good mystery.
Yes, because everyone has an off day. Mare, is the ONLY reason I kept listening and hoping.
Where to begin? I always say, just because something is lengthy doesn't mean that it's quality. This should have been 8hrs. Maybe if it was shorter, it would have allowed for a more cohesive story. This book was all over the place, which I could understand if there was a real reason to be. Just painful is all I can say. Buyer beware.
She was AMAZING. Dooly was my favorite, and the father was great as well. Not great characters but the portrayal was flawless. In fact I always perked up when they were on deck.
Run for the hills. I couldn't wait for it to be over. In fact the last few hours, i drifted so much because I just didn't care about any of it. When it ended I was like TG. I can never get my time back.
The overall rating is 2 stars vs 1 because of Mare. She helped a ton. I hesitated to go higher because I didn't want to mislead anyone in thinking the book was anything higher than a star.
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.
I was never a big Stephen King fan before, but something about this book just made me want to read it. I'm so glad I did. I absolutely loved it. I loved the mystery and the interconnecting
clues. I especially enjoyed Mare Winningham's vocal performance. Fantastic!
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 guess you always take a walk on the wild side with a King novel. The portrait of a dysfunctional family was disturbing.
I always wish there were better book reviews with the Amazon and audible books such as one would find for movies.
This book contains adult language, sexual situations and sexual abuse and portrayals of violence and murder. If this were a movie, it would be rated R
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.
