I'm still trying to find one. There is no plot. This is a fine example of a famous author just going through the motions of putting words on paper knowing they will sell. I was waiting for the classic King twist at the end by was sadly diappointed.
What a rip off!! King must have been hit by a van load of B.S. just as he was about to finish this one Oh wait he didn't finish this one. Listen right up to the point where you say to your self "Wait you can't stop here!! but he does! don't waste your time or money on this one!!!!
This book should only be read. The narrator tries to save this book. But it's is the worse, and longest thing I have every heard in over 20 years of listening to audio books. I must say however, that I fell asleep almost every time I listened to it in 15 minutes. If your mucking out a stall or two, listen to this book.
I really like King's stories, but this was an exercise in frustration. First the thick accents the speaker takes on to mimic dialect are difficult to understand. Second, this is NOT a traditional mystery that will resolve itself. Potential listeners need to know that. I struggled through over 3 hours of dialect, encouraging myself that it would get better. I was wrong. I so regret spending my time with this book when there are so many satisfying reads available! Listener beware.
Might even be his worst. I am a huge S King fan but wow he really lays an egg here. Really good performance by the reader though.
I found the story charming much like an old radio drama, or a small play.
The voice work is good and the story wraps up right on time.
If you are in the mood for something short and sweet this could be it.
If this had been the first Stephen King book I heard, I'd never listen to one again. So very dissapointed in the Colorado Kid. I felt like a rock climber, dangling from a cliff... hoping there would be a rescue line dropped... it never came.
Really bad, though the narrator does a good job of reading. Dumb story. The cover jacket is totally misleading. I can't believe anyone would have given this title more than 1 star. What a waste of time!
Listienng to this book will cure all your insomnia issues. It was truly the worst book I have ever listen to, or read by Stephen. It was like a really bad episode of CSI, and I hate CSI the show, I like and respect real CSI documentories. The reading was so over bearing with the New England accent, it only added insult to injusry.
