I simply don't see (hear) the justification for such a good review on this book. I listen to about 2 books a month on my Audible account. I have NEVER not finished a book until this one. I simply just could not get through it, I got so lost that I found I had to go back over and over and re-listen to parts. Not to mention the book DRAGS!!!! OMG this is by far the worst SK book I have ever listened too or read (other than the fantasy book SK wrote by himself). Makes me wonder what people who liked it was smoking.
I am a great fan of Stephen King. This was not a good book. I used my credit for this audiobook on the glowing reviews of readers and am now wondering if "the ballot box was stuffed". This has to be one of the most boring, uninspiring books written by Stephen King. It took me 3 weeks to get through the first 2 hours because I did not look forward to the next chapters. Purchase at your own risk!
Steven King is an excellent writer. This book, however, lacked the depth of character I usually expect with his stories. As always, though, he kept me listening straight to the end. I finished it in less than a week and it's a pretty long audible
Another fantastic story by the master story-teller, Stephen King. I use the books on tape on my ipod to keep me walking every day and it's working. I am getting a lot of exercise and enjoying every minute.
Worth the credit. Kept me interested. Wish all the characters were as well formed as the old lady. A little repeatative of other books (Bag of Bones, Talisman ect.)
