The narrator did a great job with the reading. You can clearly tell which charter is speaking.
This is the book that the TV series Haven is based off of. If you are a fan of the show you will like this book.
This book gives you some background info that the TV series does not provide.
Stephen King's work is always great but the narration made this over the top.
Story was so seamless that every part was memorable.
His narration was so realistic that it made me feel as if I were sitting in the office with them listening to him tell the story.
No extreme reaction; just enjoyment.
Liked the story , but don't know that Stephen king has ever got a bad review. Was hoping for more mystery as the show on TV holds, Haven. The accents take you there. The narrator was spot on, very good!
the way it kept spinning with new clues
the character changes
it has one Haven, a place to harbor...mystery
I expected some correlation between the book and the series other than 2 charector names. I was looking for the troubles, the "kid" and a more in depth knowledge of how everything fit together. Not recommended.
Not as good.
I guess - I thought the story really went no where and lots of extras details I thought were distracting.
It already was made into a TV show called Haven and aside from the two newspaper guys on a island of the coast of Maine - I have no idea how the show is related to this story.
Mind boggling & spooky
None. Never read a story that left me with more questions than answers after I finished it.
Short story. Loved the whole thing.
A very different twist on a murder mystery. I love that Stephen King published this new twist on solving mysteries. I don't want to say too much and kill the story for other readers. So I will only say that the ending of the story, is nothing like anything you would expect. I read this because I immediately got hooked on SciFi channel's Haven series, which is based off of this story. So I wanted to see what the story was about. Without a doubt, it is just as mysterious as Haven. I totally loved it. Mostly, I think I loved the intrigue.
The Colorado Kid is the basis for Haven on the SyFy network. As a fan of Haven I wanted to see Stephen King's take on the story. I was pleased with the story and performance.
I use my audiobooks to help get through the bored of work. Listening to the reader do old men voices the whole time was a boring chore. The story is great and an interesting way to tell a story. I thought it would give me insight in the SyFy show Haven, but it has nothing to do with the show. I would read the book not listen to this reading.
First if you are looking at this because the new TV show Haven says it's based on it then you should know only a couple of characters were LOOSELY based on characters in this book. This book gives you no back story to the show.
Second this is more of a commentary about the difference between stories and true mysteries. As they often mention in this book, this story has no plot or "through line" as they put it. I would not say the book is bad but if you are looking for a "story" then keep looking.
Although I give five stars to many of his works, this one fell flat with me. There's no action whatsoever, and only talking heads. I love a mixture of the two modes. I probably would have skipped this one had I known...
