Anyone familiar with the works of Terry Goodkind knows that he (Goodkind) is better than this.
Barely worth the listen.
Sam Tsoutsouvas does as well as anyone could expect given the material.
His narration allowed me to finish the book. I don't think I could have made it through otherwise.
First things first - This is not a fantasy/horror novel. It's a crime drama/thriller.
Will Patton nails the narration. Very enjoyable portrayal of the characters.
The storytelling is true to classic King. Compelling and detailed.
King's style is great, as always, but it needed to be in order to save a weak storyline.
Very predictable. You know what's going to happen well ahead of the actual events.
All in all, well worth the listen for hardcore King fans and for crime/thriller fans.
Overall a very intriguing take on the genre. Well written with nicely fleshed out characters.
My only issue was with the narration. For a portion of the first half, it sounds as if the narrator has a bad head cold and sounds overly melodramatic.
Once you get past the "I really should have called in sick" stage to the "I'm feeling much better now, thank you" stage, the narration is actually quite well done.
Larry Correia at his best. Very different from his other books, but amazing nonetheless.
Bronson Pinchot delivered an astounding performance; breathing life into every word. I really hope he narrates the sequel.
