The narrator did a great job. he was one of the best that i have ever head. But the book on the other hand was just too long. I felt like he could of said what he wanted in much fewer words!
SCARIER AS ADULT! I read this book when I was a teenager and it was scary then, but it's much scarier as an audiobook when listening as an adult. Pennywise has a VOICE!!
The narration was truly superb. Stephen Weber did such a wonderful job with Big Bill's stutter and his enthusiasm in the action portions made my heart race even more.
Tough choice between Pennywise and Big Bill.
There are so many philosophical nuances I'm sure I didn't remotely understand as a kid that added to the story as an adult listener.
Steven Weber takes King's detailed world and makes it shine with such a wonderful performance. Weber's talent with the naration, the sheer diversity with which each character is given, makes this book come alive. Probably one of King's most memorable works, it certainly holds a high spot in my all time favourites, and this production was thoroughly enjoyable.
I read this book year's ago, in paperback. Can't believe how much detail I forgot, but then again, the unabridged version just has so much more to offer. For those of you who don't know, this story is a coming of age story, with a few magical twists we Stephen King fans are used to, and love. Aside from the storyline, Steven Weber, the narrator, was fantastic! He brought so much energy to the book, and it was great listening to his variety of voices as he became each character. If you choose to get this audio book, and it truly is a worthwhile one full of entertainment, be prepared to commit to a long sit, as it is typically longer than others I've listened to, and in fact, may be the longest. Still, it was engaging, and I don't think you'll be disappointed.
First Bronson Pinchot blows my mind with On Stranger Tides and now Steven Weber absolutely destroys with his work reading this book. They have very different styles. Pinchot doesn't really do accents or "voices" as much as he does characters. There's serious acting talent on display in some of the books he's read. Weber does accents when necessary but his power is in story-telling, and its a power that should come with a big S on his chest. Amazing.
I have never been a big King fan, although I loved The Stand, but this book changed my opinion on the author. I'm on to Tommyknockers.
I would listen to this again because of the narration. The actual story is excellent, however the narration was the best I've ever heard.
The narration during It's perspective.
The last 200 or so pages. The ending was very entertaining.
The whole thing.
I will first start out with saying that Steven Weber ties with Frank Muller for me for my favorite narrator. Steven Weber makes these characters come to life! I find myself wanting to listen to it again just because I enjoyed his narration so much.
That aside, the story is also amazing, king does such a great job in capturing how children think. I found myself laughing at some of the things that were said or the way they would think because I thought that same thing when I was a kid. It is a great story, some parts are disturbing but that comes with the territory. Don’t let the 45 hours scare you away from this great book, Steven Weber makes it go by like a cool summer breeze, and when it is over you find yourself wanting more.
In my top 1%.
Too many to name just one.
As IT. The voice was bone chilling and very realistic.
I wouldn't. Why mess with perfection?
This book is worth the money/credit. It is a long "read" but not at all boring.
I have read and reread Stephen King's books over and over. Love the fact that I can now LISTEN to them over and over!
Mr. Weber does an overall great job reading this story. Some parts DO get a little too loud at times.
I actually downloaded this onto my phone and rather than listen to the radio all night, I have a book running all night.
Absolutely. It is a bit long, but it never got boring & the story is phenomenal
It's a Stephen King Classic...not much more needs to be said.
This was the first audiobook I've ever listened to so I don't have anything to compare it with, but it was quite enjoyable.
I'm looking forward to buying more audiobooks. I spend so much time in my car and it offered a great means of entertainment.
