"Still the best book ever!!!"
This is the extended version where King really delves deep into the lives and thoughts of some excellent characters. I previously had the 'short' version but it felt unfinished so I just had to have this! In my opinion this is still the best book King ever wrote. Excellent narration too. If you're a fan of King and a fan of audio books then this is a must!!
"Brilliant story and performance"
48 hours is a lot to ask of anyone for one story, but the combination of Kings writing and Gardners voice makes it so enjoyable.
"Stephen King's best epic!!!"
From start to finish I was gripped by the story, I can't compliment it enough with a review.
Narration is awesome too. some stories can be ruined by narration but this is just on point.
Just buy this now!! Trust Me, you won't regret it
Just so incredible, I have listened to this 4 times.
The depth of characters in this story is simply mesmerizing. When you finnish the book you will find that you actually miss characters and pretty sad it's all over.
Grover Gardener brings all of the characters to life. I personally find Glen Bateman to be a joy, the way he is written and performed is brilliant.
Something special this book is, I don't think I will find anything better.
I hope duma key is good.
His brilliant best! Fantastic scope and plot drawing. Superb characters and realism. You must read it.
"A very long, emotionally rich story"
This book will have you laughing, gasping, shouting in frustration, hoping, wondering, and even crying in some places. To call this a book or a story isn't enough; it's a saga. It tells the entire story of a very different bunch of people from start to finish. I could not have guessed where this was going or what was going to happen, even at the halfway point. If you love rich detail in every character, to the point you feel like you know them as a friend then this book is for you. And can I just say Grover Gardner's performance is one of the best I've ever listened to; every character has their own distinct voice and he switches between them flawlessly, applying tones and effects to his voice as realistically as if the story was happening to him, truly heart-rending in some places (especially Christmas day in the snow scene, had a tear roll down my cheek and I'm a 28 year old man!). I can only say that despite its enormous length, you will not be disappointed!
Couldn't stop listening to this. One of my favourite books, not disappointed by brilliant narrator
"Epic. Just Epic"
There is a reason for this novel being touted as a modern day epic because, simply, it is.
As you would expect with Sai King and his story telling, the character development is second to none, the setting of the scene is near perfect and the way that the tension builds into the third stage of the story is enough to tie your stomach in knots.
Yes, 48 hours of story telling is long, and perhaps there is a little bit of self indulgence, but to be completely honest, it's deserved and does nothing to detract from this truly epic tale.
A masterpiece of story writing.
Truly an epic. I have listened to it twice now and it just gets better.
"M-O-O-N, that spells five stars. Laws yes it does."
Moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon. This is is a hell of a book.
