loved it but then I love everything Stephen King writes almost he is most realistic writer I've ever read while some of his work is outlandish it's still spellbinding.
I RARELY write reviews. but I just had to warn others how Jessica Hecht ruins the stories with her narrations. First time I have ever put a Steven King down unfinished, but I just couldn't take it. Sounds like she is injecting humour in inappropriate places, and makes the characters she plays sound like bubble-headed simpletons. Wish she'd have just read the stories straight. Buy the paperback or ebook. Save your credit for something more worthy.
Loved these short stories. What can you say about Stephen King that hasn't already been said. Brilliant? Check. Dark? Check. Intriguing? Check. Ghoulish? Check. All the things I love. The narration was good, steady, but Jessica Hecht's wistful narration was cloying in parts. If not for that, five stars there as well. I listened twice to this book in rapid succession to pick up tid bits I might have missed. It was enjoyable both times. I wish I could write like this. Simply but powerfully. What a treat.
As usual Stephen King's four stories in Full Dark No Stars are excellent. Craig Wasson's performance was perfect, Jessica Hecht would be better suited reading children's books.
I enjoyed all 4 stories and loved the narration. I was sad to read reviews saying people do not like Jessica Hecht's narration. I absolutely loved it. Her cheerful voice made the dark stories that much darker for me - the contrast added a creepiness for me. I actually came to audible tonight to search for other things she has narrated and was disappointed that there is only one other book. Given the poor reviews of her narration, I doubt I'll find others by her soon. Very disappointing for me. I love Craig Wasson's narration too. He was spectacular on King's 11.22.63 and didn't disappoint here. My favorite story here was A Good Marriage, but all were chilling. 1922 was a little overwrought for my taste - payoff didn't match the time invested. Big Driver was very painful content but so well told. I liked Fair Extension though it felt like another take on the idea behind Thinner. All good - worth your time.
