It helps that the author wrote in how many kids were left as the plot goes on. The narrator is slow and methodical but the story really pulls through. Over all, the benchmarks of character throughout the piece are really stand outs. The author really plays up personalities well.
Whatever happened to that kid in "The Shining"? He never showed up in the Dark Tower...Did he? Well, Here's the Answer!
THANK YOU STEPHEN KING! and family. You did right by this ... shall we say series now. Although The Talisman and Black House bled into The Dark Tower series, those books stood well on their own but somewhat disappointed in that they finished off somewhere else.
Happy to report The Shining and Doctor Sleep are very complete. One of King's finest in that you KNOW he loved this bunch of characters and you feel it in his writing.
Wil Patton reading adds to the creepiness. He draws you in like any good story teller and creates the atmosphere this book deserves. Should he do The Shining too. YES he should. But Cambell Scott does that read justice so listen in pure joy and horror.
Heaven just Heaven! with a touch of Stephen King Hell. The Most Satisfying Audible read so far this year!
Might have to listen again. Fine work on narration and story combined. Feels like a summer read. Enjoy.
I didn't know I could consider myself a steam punk fan. A most excellent series! Bronson Pinchot was so good I went out and purchased more of his reads. This series is one of his best!.
Spoiler-ish : This book sets up for another one and I can't wait!
It's nice to visit the jumper world again. I love the depth this story brings. It really brings a more roundness to the storyline. The narration is also great for the story. A good overall experience if you like the jumpers.
Once you get through this book, you'll crave more Haruki Murakami.
I now understand what it means by "Masterful". Sure Milan Kundera is 'masterful" but this book is amazing on so many different levels. Love it! Love it! Love it!
This is why I READ books on tape. The wonder, the merriment. The Joy. This is one of those I didn't want to end.
Okay, it is a little dark and somewhat sad. But I can't wait to hear it again and again.
Drawn to this book by the movies. Neither of the movies are close to the pace and shock of the book. I enjoyed how the writer draws you in by not telling you what happens until you see the aftermath of any event.
Definitely not for the faint of heart for vampire readers. Gets into the "reality" of what a vampire body is about. Similar to the movies, I like the explanation of what happens if a vampire enters into a room without being asked to enter.
