I was glued to this story from start to finish.
A fantastic, horrifying and sometimes deliciously hilarious tale that Mr King has woven so carefully together. A must read.
"Good story and reading, sound effects bit jarring"
Great story and narration was good, there is background music and sound effects though which are a bit jarring.
"Good story, but audio book issues lets it down."
Interesting story with plenty of twists leaving you not knowing what's going to happen but annoying overly loud music between chapters that drones over the reader and audio glitches/hissing let it down.
good story but is the crappy music really necessary? it is a little bit annoying
I've read listened to a lot of Kings book but this was dreadful. Really annoying music inbetween chapters and his voice became grating. I got to the last 1hr 50mins and couldn't take anymore. Had to delete it. Drawn out painful tat.
"Great story, good narration but the music...."
I like this story, Mr King does small town horror better than anyone else and it's great to have him read it but why did they put incidental music in it? It's like the music from a late-70s kids TV show. Luckily there isn't enough to ruin the story but it totally throws you out of the narrative every time it pops up.
"Sound effects ruin the preformace"
The story is good as you'd expect fro Steven King, and the narrator is good if unremarkable. The performance struggles due to the random on and off sound effects that rarely reflect what is happening in the story. It will be an intense moment and suddenly circus music kicks in for no understandable reason and 10 seconds later is gone
"not his best"
good narration, didn't like the music and sound effects. story really not up to kings normal standard.
The build up was better than the ending, excellent characterisation.
Discovering what each person needed the most
No, did it in a couple of days.
Very good story and well narrated. Not as long as some King epics and it didn't suffer from that.
Despite being a big Stephen King fun and really enjoying reading some of the classics like the stand and Salem's Lot I really didn't enjoy this one at all. The plot seemed a bit thin and i found the whole thing uncharacteristically hokey.
And not one of Mr King's best efforts in my opinion!
