I think, like most, I bought this book because of my love of Stephen King. I am happy to report that apple did not fall far from the tree. I have read several reviews that Joe Hill's writing is like reading Stephen King but I did not think so. There are similiar horror themes of course but felt like a different style of writing to me. I loved the book and will be buying more of Joe Hill.
I have not listened to any other stories performed by Kate Mulgrew but I will be looking her up too. Her performance was perfect! I have listened to many books on audible and no other performances were as good as hers.
I tried! I hated to turn it off. I wanted to keep going until the end.
yes; Biff is hilarious!
Great listen. It was a little slow at first for me and I had to make a few attempts to let it sink in before I finally let it play. Once I did, however, I could not get enough. Loved it
Favorite Moore book so far!
So funny. I am sure I disrupted my coworkers repeatedly with burst of laughter.
Well read. Good performance.
It took about a week to listen, but I am busy, busy.
A little slow to start but worth the wait. It is a great listen.
I was a little hesitant about this book in the beginning but it grew on me as I listened. The story of each character felt real enough to relate with just enough good luck to make it fictional to be entertaining. I really enjoyed this book and I am ready to see if there are more out there by this author.
I really liked seeing all the growth in Francy. It was nice to see all the different dimensions of how she thought and processed everything about her family. It was also wonderful to hear the time and place so romanticized. I have no least favorite.
The most memorable for me is the death of Johnny.
No, it was finished well.
constant comedy throughout.
Although I love this book and I enjoy the narration, the question must be asked, has Barrett Whitener ever met a single black person? The "accent" given to all of the black characters was annoying. I am from Louisiana and only 30 minutes north of New Orleans. While native New Orleans do have a colorful accent in New Orleans, it is not the one narrated.
Read this book or listen to it. I was originally put off by the main character's ego, I gave it another try and fell madly in love with it.
