    Author Cassandra Fallows has achieved remarkable success by baring her life on the page. Her two widely popular memoirs continue to sell briskly, acclaimed for their brutal, unexpurgated candor about friends, family, lovers - and herself. But now, after a singularly unsuccessful stab at fiction, Cassandra believes she may have found the story that will enable her triumphant return to nonfiction.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It took a little while to get started, but once the story started to roll, it was great.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I think the Narrator did a wonderful job!

    It is 1866 and Walter Moody has come to make his fortune upon the New Zealand goldfields. On arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of 12 local men, who have met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes. A wealthy man has vanished, a whore has tried to end her life, and an enormous fortune has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk. Moody is soon drawn into the mystery: a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely patterned as the night sky.

    I like books that I can get into right away. Unfortunately this was not one of those books. The narration wasn't what I expected, and the beginning was way too slow to even continue listening. I thought I'd give it a chance from reading the other reviews...wish I didnt waste my credit.

    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.

    Story

    Doctor Sleep had a bit of a slow start for me, and felt like it threw a lot of characters at you at one time...once it got going, it was a pretty good story. If you're looking for something to listen to while you're working or taking a road trip, you might like this one.
