Ever read a book you wish wouldn't end? Well it wasn't this one. I thought it would never end. Looking at other reviews I'm wondering if I've listened to the same book. Too many characters, slow plot, kind of dumb. Hey, the narrator was okay but it's going to be a while before I go back to King again.
I'm glad I finally rediscovered King. It's been a while but I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Interesting and terrifying premise. Wish King would produce more of this genre.
This book was so good. King never fails to amaze me. I've just finished listening to this for the 2nd time. really keeps you on your toes. The narration was A+ all the way around. I live in a small town and kept asking myself how this event would play out in my town. i'd love to find out hehe. Thanks Mr. King. You are the best. you keep writing and I'll keep listening
Good story although "we all support the team" became tiresome.
What carried me through the 29 hours was Raul Esparza's voice work. I believed him as bunches of men, several woman including a cranky elderly gal, a crew of teenagers, and a couple of female children. What a talent!
I have listened to this book many times and always find more interesting things about the characters. Great reader too!
This is the worst book I've bought from Audible.com in all the years I've been a member. So sorry I wasted one of my precious credits on it. Not only is the story awful but the narrator is not good either. I would prefer to give it 1/2 of a credit at the most.
A great story and well narrated, but this book seriously needed an edit. The pointlessly ornate details of every character's life and thoughts were just tedious and boring. It did nothing to help the plot move along and I still felt like most of the characters were, well... characters, not people. The main players were great though and the first 80% of the tale is riveting, then it fades. Esparza's reading of Renny should get some kind of award, pure genius.
I love King's writing. I couldn't quit listening! Huge kudos to Raul Esparza! He's one of the best readers I've heard...and I listen to a lot of books. King's great writing hooked me in and Esparza kept me totally engrossed. I hope to hear more narration from him in the future.
