the reader makes the characters so real had to stop listening occasionally. author uses seriously evocative language. Unique word images associated with mundane Acts. very impressed
Kate Mulgrew's narration and the fact that it scared me big time.
Lou. Just loved how he loved Vic.
She is a marvelous voice actress and brings each character to life.
When Lou and Wayne break the horcrux ornaments and Wayne is finally his true self again.
Hope Joe Hill continues to write books and that audible versions are made so I can listen to them.
Not great but a good listen for a newer author. I had to suspend reality quite a bit while playing along with story. I wish the story had been a little more believable and I struggled with the cliches that were over used. I expect Mr. King will sharpen his craft and write soon great books in the future!
Went in to this listen with the hope I didn't waste my Audible credit. I was not disappointed. Joe Hill delivered a creepy, chilling, and at times, really scary story that is as unique as the license plate on the book cover. Kate Mulgrew's ability to portray each character as though she was someone else really makes this an immersive listen. Enjoyed this so much that I used my other 3 credits on Heart Shaped Box, Horns, and The Fireman.
Give yourself...an early Christmas gift...and buy this book. I promise you'll enjoy it.
Creepy Christmas kids
Lou Carmody, because he's a good guy at heart, tries his best, and loves his son and Vic.
First time, but I've loved her voice since Voyager.
One thing kept throwing me out of the story. It may be because I'm relatively local to where most of the story takes place, but every single time the narrator mispronounced 'Ha-ver-hill' jarred me out of it. In New England, we say it 'Hayve-rull' ('rill' is acceptable too). She got all the other hard names right- Laconia, Winnipesaukee, etc., but this one popped up a LOT. That's on the producer, though, not checking the pronunciation, not Kate Mulgrew, who's from Dubuque, Iowa.
I would absolutely recommend this book to any of my friends who love suspense.
The fact that it spanned so much of the main character's life. You really got invested in her story and I was actually sad to be finished with it. I wanted more.
Her voice inflection, tone, EVERYTHING.
Probably Victoria, just to probe her mind and find out everything she's seen and experienced.
