I have become a new fan of Stephen King. The long walk was a bit gory and perhaps unbelievable at first, but was exciting to listen to as I got lost in the story and began to believe. The narrator was excellent in not just reading the book but dramatizing it with somewhat different voices for each of the main characters. I was on the edge of my "bed" while listening to this book and intrigued by the conversations of the boys, actually learning from this book. It got me thinking about how I would be as a long walker. Great listen for this new Stephen King fan.
The narrator reads or rather tells this story in a manner that lets you forget it is a book being read......It seems like he is right here reading a bedtime story. This classic book is a wonderful fantasy that says so much about us as we become adults and often lose much of our imagination. A reread or relisten of this book is mandatory for all adults children. I recommend it to all adults and recommend after reading it that the adults read it to children.
Wow......exciting listen.....had trouble putting it down. A bit gorey but like I am finding out, Stephen keeps you on the edge of your seat, brings in some twists and turns, then brings you back to the main story line.....hard to guess where he is taking you next. I highly recommend this to everyone, unless you are squimish....but hey, it is after all Stephen King, right. :-) Careful of that cell phone ring.....are you sure you want to answer it?
This is a wonderful presentation of the Bible. Not just read but actually performed in somewhat of a radio drama type format with sound effects. It is the New King James Version, which means it is written/performed in more every day language......Much easier to understand than the original King James version. I have only listened to the first few sections, but enjoyed what I have listened to so far. Whenever, I read the Bible, I pick out the same sections that I have read in the past....every time I try to read it from the beginning, I get bogged down in the "begets" and some of the old Testament.....but I think this will be a way to enjoy the entire Bible from beginning to End and actually read or listen to some of the sections that I have never read before. Thank you Audible. And such a bargain with my audible membership.
