I love the honor and nobility of this story. The reader does many of the voices quite well but is a little lacking in the general narration. But overall a very worthwhile listen
This is one of my favorite King stories. It reads just like a fairy tale, but from Stephen King's mind. I have read this book many times. But, this was the first time I had ever listened to it. Bronson "Balky" Pinchot was awful. I mean, does every character except for the protagonist have to have a lisp!?! Still, any King fan should know this book. But the narration sucths!
Yes, and I have. When this book first came out I had it in paperback, my ex-girlfriend kept it. I have since bought the book in hardcover and audio. I don't know why I loved this story as much as I did, but I do.
I prefer his narration's to his acting any day. To be far, he was great in Beverly Hills Cop
Yes, this was the first book of Stephen King's that I loved from cover to cover. I have read most of his older books and can find things in most of them that I didn't like.
the gunslinger books.
it would have to be Flag.. evil as he was the performance by Mr pinchot was briliant and made the story come alive.
i listen just when i am driving and i dont ever change that.. but i couldnt wait to drive and listen to this book .. it was very much a book that i looked forward to and hated to have it end.
what a briliant writer Stephen King is .. this book had everything in it to satisfy even the most critical of Mr Kings criticts.. what a performance from Bronson Pinchot.. it was just as much a credit to his performance as was the writer for the sucess of this audio book.. I will look for more books performed by this brilliant narrator.
Get someone with a decent voice that shows some level of emotion.
It was so bad, it sounded like a robot. It was jerky, without emotion and caused me to turn off the audiobook after 3 or so hours (which I had to fight through because I liked the story). Really ruined this book for me. VERY VERY VERY disappointed.
Again, the performance was beyond awful.
