This was my first experience with listening to books and I think it was a perfect 1st pick. It kept my attention and it was very hard to stop once I started. Now I am ready for more!
Yes. Great story & outstanding performance.
Somehow I'd missed this. I thought I'd read everything by Mr. King. It was different, but very entertaining.
Morris' feelings in the hospital room when he realizes who is in the next bed.
I have been reading Stephen King since 1975 when I picked up Salem's Lot. There were a few stories in the middle (Gerald's Game, etc) that I didn't care for. I actually missed some books. Then the Gunslinger came out and I became "constant reader" once again. This story was very hard to take, and I'm not sure why. I think it was the subject. I have a son who was a very apt pupil. This was a little creepy for me.
I have already read so many Stephen King that I could start a library. Of course I will read more, I'll just be more careful and read the synopsis more closely.
Frank Muller's performance was fine. Maybe he brought the book too close to life?...
I don't mind getting stuck in traffic...as long as I have an audio book playing.
I never listen to books more than once - no matter how good.
It was believable in a creepy sort of way
When the "boy" and the "Nazi" meet for the first time.
I got this book because Frank Muller was the reader and he always makes a book worth listening to. I had never heard of this particular Stephen King novel, and I think its appeal will remain limited. A suburban kid, seemingly straight but soon creepy, becomes attached to a former Nazi prison camp commander and their lives merge in California. Muller is very good with the accents and inflections as usual, and I got engrossed in the book, but I don't really feel edified by it. Kind of creepy, as the author tells you at the end.
Hi! I just wanted to post this because I think there's been a mistake. It says Frank Muller read this, but it really doesn't sound like him. Would love some feedback to find out.
Stephen King is one of the best story tellers who can make simple relationship between a boy and old man feel so sinister.
