Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
King understands there is a shell of lingo-grit smeared around the way many speak (and think). Crackle through it and there's a worthy idea underneath the emotional packaging people wear. I wish that this story had a few fewer disposable characters... I.E. people who added character to the ensemble who really form the lead character... but in a number of cases, they are overkill with respect to the author's ultimate conclusions about the content of our character. Paul Esparza is magnificent in his ability to aurally differentiate the linguistic and psychological characters in this huge cast.
It could be shorter, but continues entertainingly thoughtful.
Great book pure and simple. This was my first Stephen King book and I loved it. I couldn't wait to go to work so I could listen to it. I would actually work extra so I could listen! Raul Esparza was a fabulous choice to read it. He was funny and very easy to listen to.
This was a little long but I listened at every opportunity. Scenes and events were discribed so graphically you can visualize them and feel rith there. The characters came across so clearly you feel the emotions and craziness of each. I will listen to this book again.
62 year old grandmother that loves to read! Whether listening to books on my iPod or reading them on my Nook! I even pick up an actually book from time to time. Family is everything to me especially since I lost my son in August of 2011.
I thought this was a very good book. Lots of characters....lots of plots and you really didn't know the answer to the "dome" until late in the book. Listened to it over a couple of weeks and became very engrossed. Thanks for another great book Mr. King!
This is a very good story brought to life by a great narrator. It becomes more than a book with the life the Mr. Esparza breathes into each characters voice. It's more than a book, and more than a movie. Incredible.
I love Stephen King and think he is a master of both plot and language. However, this was such a disappointment in terms of language and character development. It started with an interesting premise and then seems like Mr. King wrote it without his usual passion and skills. I can't wait for his next novel and will consider this an anomoly.
It is long, but you will not put it down, it ranks up there with the Shining and Bag of Bones. You will get so mad at the characters and want to jump in the "dome" yourself.
