    There's a place along Interstate 50 that some call the loneliest place on Earth. It's known as Desperation, Nevada. It's not a very nice place to live. It's an even worse place to die. Let the battle against evil begin.

    Overall

    First of all, be warned, this is an abridged book. I didn't realize that until I bought it. The unabridged version doesn't seem to be available.

    The story and characters are good. This is basic King. Not great, not bad. Just good.

    Kathy Bates is a superb reader.

    As other listeners have pointed out, the sound effects are completely unnecessary, annoying, too long, too loud, inappropriate, and distracting. Several of King's books have been adulterated in this manner and it never works.
    Whoever the genius is who thinks such a thing is a good idea shouldn't be allowed to produce audio books.
