I've been reading a lot of Stephen King over the years and Tommyknockers was still on my list to read and I'm somewhat disappointed with the flow of the story and the narritation of this audio book. I'm a fan of Edward Hermann, but in this book, he doesn't put any fear in his voice. There is no urgency from him as the plot gets thicker. It seems like he is reading a bedtime story that wants you to go take a nap.
This is a second edition on this audio book. When they first published Tommknockers, Pam Ward was the narrator. I wished that Audible had her version of this audio book because I'm disappointed at Hermann's performance.
I cannot really comment of the actual story of the book because of the narrator. Tommknockers is not one of my favorite from King's collection. The book is between sci fi and terror. It's not a horror story by any means, but Tommyknockers is more like a cough that doesn't go away and it's always there tickling your throat, bugging you.
Matrix is one of my favorite movies of all time, but I was never into Star Trek.
Tommyknockers is not a bad read by any means. There are some creepy points in the book, like the water heater, but I just can't get over their choice of narrator.
I have the old version with Pam Ward, but the bitrate is not so great and I did not wanted to spend 27 odd hours of listening to less than AM radio. So, I bought this new version on Audible. I regret the purchase because my review would had been very different if I listened to Pam Ward's edition.
I don't like writing my reviews until I finish the title, but I have about 5 hours left and I'm starting to fall asleep as I write this review. I will end up finishing Tommyknockers after taking a few more naps.
Yes Takes twice to gather it all in.
A surprise, not what I expected
His voice and the way he expresses .
The chief of police or sheriff.
