    First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this 10th anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author's preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

    What disappointed you about American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (A Full Cast Production)?

    I had to stop after about 10 hours. Before I used (wasted a credit) I carefully read the reviews then pulled the trigger. I'm not sure why this story has such glowing reviews. To me - this is a rambling, weird, bunch of disconected nonsense. I can't take it anymore, it's just too painful.


    What aspect of the narrators’s performance would you have changed?

    The full cast performance isn't really the problem for me. I forced myself to get used to it. I struggled with the story.

  • Doctor Sleep: A Novel

    Story
    (4297)

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    D says: "The sequel to the book; not the movie"
    "Stephen King Kills It! And so does Will Patton!"

    Story

    Excellent sequel to his classic - "The Shining". This is Stephen King at his best! I am a huge SK fan. I consider myself one of his consummate readers. My only question about this long awaited audiobook was if Will Patton was a good choice to narrate this story. I know that SK is very selective about picking the best of the best to read/record his work. I enjoy Will Patton as an actor - BUT - can he give us a good performance and keep us engaged for more than 18 hours of narration? Does he have the talent and range with characters that makes a great narrator?
    Answer: YES! Wow, I was pleasantly (or maybe frighteningly) impressed with Will and his performance in Doctor Sleep. I should never have questioned Will Patton. He was the perfect choice to read Doctor Sleep.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (14126)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Stephen King - You've done it again!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Entertaining! Great story! This has got to be the best time travel story I've ever read. I really enjoyed the ride.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love all the references to the 60's. This brings back memories of my childhood.
