First off, what an excellent narrator! I will listen to more of your stuff, Mr.Berman. This was a very good story. I was surprised at the many ways Kirkman and Bonansinga were able to describe the sounds of visuals of wasting the biters without sounding redundant. There were also a few things that I didn't expect in the story. Well worth the listen, even if you are not a fan of The Walking Dead.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I have to say that Jake was my favorite character. I wanted him to win so badly that, for a moment, I thought about not finishing the book so I didn’t have to know what was to become of his relationship with Sadie. But, this is what makes King the master. Not the scary stuff, but the characters. There are several characters in the story that you feel sorry for, but then feel like they are getting what they deserve at the same time (example – Marina Oswald).
What about Craig Wasson’s performance did you like?
You can feel the sadness in Craig’s voice. Jake had several watershed decisions to make – Stay in Jody, or go to Dallas. Sadie or Lee? 2011 or 1958? Close the hole? I could feel that struggle. Wasson was an excellent choice to read this novel.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I did choke up a little at the conclusion. Very bittersweet.
Any additional comments?
This book is quite the masterpiece. I reacted to the emotion in this novel as I did to the Green Mile, which may be my favorite King novel. I remember how horribly sad that I felt for John Coffey, and for the internal decisions that Paul had to make in the end. I love the fact that King is able to weave these genuine human emotions into all of his stories. Keep writing them, Mr. King. I’ll keep reading (and listening).
