this is his best work by far although the way they did the television series, you would not think so but if you have not seen that then read this!
Truly one of my favorites.
I can't honestly say there wasn't just any one most memorable moment, the entire story held my interest from start to finish. In my opinion, this is one of Kings best, I would rate it as good as Lucifer's Hammer, if you liked Lucifer's Hammer, you would love this book.
Possibly, the best narrator I have ever listened to, he does all the different, and there are many, voices perfectly, always knew who was talking without a lot of "he said' "she said" at the end of the sentence and he did the accents perfectly without being stereotypical. I will look for books he has narrated that are within my interest.
There is a movie out of this book, however, it's from the heavily edited version of the book, If a movie was to be made of "This book" you would have to change the rating. I guess you could call it "Looking for Mr. Badbar."
This is the original version of the book as written by Stephen King back in the '80's-90's, I read the original edited version, some of the scenario's in the current book alter from the original release, even if you have read the original edited version, it's worth a credit to listen to this book which is 47 hours long........you missed a lot.
Grandma bibliophile! Audible books make reading with an active life possible.
This is one of my all time favorites. I've read/listened to this book every couple of years for decades, The story never grows old.
I came in knowing I hated nothing more than apocalypse stories, but for the first third of this book, I thought it was going to be the best book I've read. The characters were interesting and the pacing was excellent. Then I discovered that I hate poorly done good vs evil stories with awful endings more than apocalypse ones.
Regardless of the story taking a nose dive, I still adore the first half and I'd still recommend the book to all fiction readers, except maybe those who exclusively read young adult since it is different.
Forced to commute, I make it bearable by listening to my audio books. It keeps the road rage to a minimum.
Grover Gardner is my absolute favorite narrator. He made this book better than it already is.
I love this book, the whole concept. I guess because it could happen. All the different characters. Their stories, how it all comes together. Good and evil isn't any new concept. I enjoyed it just the same.This time I enjoyed listening to it. I had read it previously twice. I almost wished He had written a sequel. I recommend it to any reader, especially those that enjoy a large book. Definitely one of Kings better ones.
