    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    I haven't been too crazy about most of Stephen King's recent books, but this one was great. I didn't want it to end.

    There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of those things as he draws listeners into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah’s life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I suppose the narrator was ok but this was such a boring, winey story that I had to give up. I gave up at an hour and a half, there was nothing in this story to make me keep going.


    What could Dean Koontz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I have read many,many Dean Koontz books in the past. I stopped when they became repetitive and too offbeat for me. I hoped this would be more like the "old" Dean Koontz but this was no one I ever want to read.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think he did the best he could with such a lame story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The City?

    If I could play editor I would have told him to make relatable characters or a cohesive story.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave up after an hour and a half, I had no interest in subjecting myself to more. I give this a big fat zero.

    (16985)

    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.

    Would you listen to 11-22-63 again? Why?

    I am about half way through and this might be the best Stephen King novel ever!! I am loving it.

    No one could understand why Colin and Roy were best friends. Colin was so shy; Roy was so popular. Colin was nervous around girls; Roy was a ladies' man. Colin was fascinated by Roy - and Roy was fascinated by death. Then one day Roy asked his timid friend: "You ever killed anything?"

    Overall

    This has to be the worst Dean Koontz story of all time. It was one of a very few that I hadn't read and I was very disappointed that it was so boring and sexually descriptive.
