    What made the experience of listening to Firestarter the most enjoyable?

    Dennis Boutsikaris does a great job narrating this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Firestarter?

    When the Shop catches up with Charlie and Andy at the Manders farm.


    What does Dennis Boutsikaris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dennis Boutsikaris does a good job expressing the emotions of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    While I would have loved to listen to this book in one sitting the length makes it difficult unless you are taking a long car ride (or flight).

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Stephen King

    Story
    (3540)

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Valerie says: "Just As Wonderful as I Remembered!"
    "This is a great start to a wonderful series."

    If you could sum up The Gunslinger in three words, what would they be?

    Sci-Fi Adventure Classic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roland is, of course, my favorite character becuase he is the gunslinger.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    George Guidall reads quite a few Stephen King books so I have listened to him read before and he always does a great job. He his, in my opinion, one of the better preformers and in this case he is reading one of my favorite books so it ends up being great. He also reads the last three books in this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, this book is short enough you can listen to it in one sitting, but I find when I start this one I want to listen to them all without stopping which would be impossible unless you could somehow stay up 24 hours and day for about 7 days to complete the seires.
