  • The Breathing Method

    "The Breathing Method", from Stephen King's bestselling collecton Different Seasons, takes place in an exclusive gentlemen's club in New York, where no one pays any dues. Membership is based upon a telling of tales, and one nightmarish tale about a disgraced woman determined to give birth - not matter the consequences - pays for them all.

    "Just great!!!!"
    Overall

    I am not a fan of every King book, but this one, originally found in the compilation, "Different Seasons", made quite an impression on me years ago, when I read it the "old fashioned" way. I was thrilled to find it in audio format, and Frank Muller's narration is amazing!!! He makes the listener feel as though he/she is part of the story, experiencing it firsthand. I felt as though he was sitting right in my living room reading to me. Mr. Muller makes the entire experience a wonderfully personal, visceral, special experience!!

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    Where does The Stand rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Frank Muller has been my favorite narrator to this point; hearing Grover Gardner narrate The Stand hasn't changed that, but I have added Mr. Gardner to the top of my 'favorite narrator list' right along with Frank Muller. I will definitely seek out other works by Mr. Gardner. He brings life to Stephen King's characters amazingly and makes an incredible novel even better. I will listen to it over and over. It is among the best, if not the best, audiobook in my collection.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stand?

    Too many to name really, for the entire unfolding of the plot is memorable, but I love Tom and Stu's journey together near the end. It is so touching. I can't put it into words, except to say the feelings I have come from somewhere deep inside, where words can't do them justice.


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

    He uses great voices for the characters, to make them seem even more


    Who was the most memorable character of The Stand and why?

    Again, too many to name, really, but I guess Mother Abigail. I admire her for her quite literal connection to God, taking on what He's given her, bringing the people together. I admire that she truly tried to live her life by His guidance and His will, and she showed others how to do that in the midst of a world-altering crisis.


    Any additional comments?

    The only reason I gave the story four out of five stars is because there are a couple of characters I couldn't identify with very well and I wanted to get beyond those areas and on with the novel. I won't say which characters didn't do too much for me because I don't want to spoil anything for anyone. Besides, my displeasure in a couple of portions is extremely minor and should not detract from the novel as a whole, nor prevent anyone from listening to this marvelous work. If I could've, I would've given the story four and a half out of five stars.

    If you've ever experienced the one true love of your life, a love that for some reason could never be, you will understand why readers all over the world were so moved by this small, unknown first novel that they made it a publishing phenomenon and best seller.

    Overall

    I read this marvelous novel years ago and hearing it again, read by Mitch Greenberg enhances my opinion of it and brings back great memories!

    Mr. Greenberg has the perfect cadence for the narrative style of the novel. This is a must-have for fans, romantics, and those new to what I feel is a modern classic.
