Not only is this a masterful work, the narration is absolutely astounding.
This is a story that will live in me for the rest of my life. I will judge all that I see differently from now on due to the effect of this story.
Not only do I recommend this book, I tell you, if you do not listen to it, you are denying yourself a wealth of insight. It is a plumb for the picking! So Run!, don't walk to the cart with this one! It will change you.
And PLEASE! Give Mr. Baker more books to read for us!
My favorite King works have always been his stories more about people than about Horror.
This is my favorite Stephen King book of all.
This is a well written book, and the narrator is extremely good! 5 stars for her!
However, MEN BEWARE, this is a book written by a woman, for women about women! The book is about things that interest women exclusively. The only references to any living men in this book portrayed them as scoundrels, losers or jerks. There were some references to men dead who were "wonderful", the inference being, "they don't make um like that anymore." As a man, I became OVERDOSED with the femaleism before I could finish the book.
I am a person who knows logically that God can not exist in the way that religion has taught me. Yet, I still feel God in all things.
After listening to this book,I still feel God, but differently. Perhaps more importantly, I see more clearly the terrible threat that religion and "blind faith" poses for the future of humankind.
I HIGHLY recommend reading this book, whatever your faith may be. After all, mere words can not change the truth.
A marvel of contemporary literature. Those who can not see beauty in the grotesque will call this book "trash". Those who can, will call it a "masterpiece". The images will never leave you.
