Wow, just wow. I have enjoyed other Hill and King collaborations, especially considering that Hill is Kings son, and this was no exception. Short, creepy, and very well written.
This story had several WTF moments that surprised even me a veteran of Kings writing. Stephen Lang was phenomenal as usual; he has read some of Hills stuff and did well with those. My only complaint is that Lang doesnt do women very well, his voice is too gravelly. Over all it was well done and look forward to an actual novel written by these two.
I will listen to NO boring book. Old Fav's,Card, King , Hobb. New Fav's, Hill, Scalzi, Sawyer, Interested in Lansdale, Crouch, Konrath
This was an excellent scary story. It was gory, which just made it that more scary. In Kansas they don't have woods, so stories about getting lost in he woods does not scare anyone. In Kansas they do have tall grass, wheat, sunflower fields, corn, etc. It was good from start to finish, first half and second half.
I like Stephen King, I like Joe Hill and I like King and Hill together. I don't know what else to say.
The story captures the constant reader from the beginning. It's a short story, and it leaves you wanting more. I wouldn't be surprised if King will elaborate further on the evil in this story, in some future stories. Kind of the way he did with Desperation and The Regulators.
Scary, Mysterious, Chilling
I can't choose my favorite character. They were all great.
I have not
I was listening with great intent towards the middle of the book as some of the mysteries started to unfold. It was great!
As always Stephen Lang did a great job with the narration. I enjoy reading Stephen King's books, especially the short stories, and I have enjoyed both of the Joe Hill books I've read. But this story was just too gory (and unthinkable) for me.
I don't know. A Whole different story maybe. I feel like I wasted my $7 on this one.
I won't give up on listening to this genre. I just didn't like this particular book.
The Narrator is fine.
All of them, because I didn't like the story.
With Stephen King books, you never know what you're going to get. Some are fantastic, and some of them are less than interesting. But that's true with all authors. I will continue to listen to and read Stephen King's books because he has such a weird and strange imagination.
The story could have been so good, and started out so well. And then it falls apart completely. Some of it makes no sense whatsoever. And the gross part people are referring to, yes, it is that disgusting. If you are really bored, give it a listen. Just set the bar low.
I've read almost all of Stephen Kings books and although I thoroughly enjoyed his earlier works, I haven't been pleased with them in the last few years.
Storyline was too weak. The areas that should have connected didn't do so later. I was surprised when the end of the book came because I expected more.
