    A cute family dog turns into a vicious family killer in King's canine classic.

    Overall

    The story holds up remarkably well for an early '80s setting, mostly because the situation is so truly terrifying. It would be a 5-star for me if the choice of narrator wasn't so unfortunate. It's sort of like being read to by your grandmother, and while I like grandmothers, there are some stories that would suit someone else better. In the early going, I actually considered abandoning the audiobook because the narration was just too intrusive. The male voices are particularly awful, although it does get a bit better as the book goes on. Fortunately, this book takes place primarily inside the character's heads, sparing us a great deal of painful dialogue. Lorna Raver might have been great in "Drag Me To Hell," but this is not the right medium for her.
