This is my second Joe Hill novel. I'm a big fan of both Tabitha and Stephen King and I was nervous wanting to make sure that this writer had his own distinctive voice. I'm happy to say that Joe Hill does have a distinctive voice and I look forward to getting to know it over the course of more books. I enjoyed listening to this book in audio format though I can't say I was amazed by the performance of the narrator. That's not to say I would avoid a book by this narrator, though.
Overall, it was an engrossing and enjoyable experience.
If you even think you might one day think there's a god don't listen to this book, if you want an understandable story don't listen to this book, if you don't want to burn your money for a book that will likely make you puke DON'T LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! This is hands down the worst book I've ever listened to. I listened all the way through so I could be fair in this review, the reading was OK at best she can't do male voice at all and gets excited in the wrong parts, the story line is awful hardly any of it making sense just jumbles of cursing and using the lord name in vain and saying unspeakable things about the lords mother. don't don't don't waste your time you can never unhear the awful things written in this book!
Listened to the whole thing hoping for the story to evolve, but it really kind of went were you expected it to. lots of themes, including the fact that all the mother's are secretly or obviously horrible people that can't be redeemed. including the hero. worth listening to once.
I loved this story. It grabs you and holds on from the very beginning. If you like Stephen King's "It"... This is way better. And Kate Mulgrew truly brings it to life.
it's a good book but I fell asleep and was ready for the end half thru. It bored me.
Narrator I will give 4/10 the rave reviews for her sold me this book now they sound friends, agents and family's puffing. Nope no buying any books based on this narrator ever again.
Epic fantasy junkie but I love a good mystery.
Overall this was a satisfying story but I felt like some of the narration was over dramatic. I feel like I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it instead of listening to it. Alas some books are just that way.
The storyline was interesting but it went on and on and on ...
Nope. I would have returned it if it wasn't purchased as a daily special.
I was disappointed in the story. Kate Mulgrew was great.
She is an excellent narrator.
No as I did not like the first book.
What a story! Truly one that the could have come from Stephen himself. I loved everything about this book, the characters, the plot, the narrative performance, the beginning and the end. Subtle references to other books readers of this book would enjoy. I'm a huge King fan and I'm so happy to see that his legacy is already being taken at a good pace. Bravo Joe!!
