This is the best kind of audiobook. Read by the author, great story, insightful, and playful. And, of course, dark at times - come on, it's Steven King! Best quote: “Life isn't a support system for art. It's the other way around."The part about his intervention is incredibly moving. Steven King's life is an incredible gift he's given the world.
Wonderful story. Great narrating. Definitely listen to it or read it before you see the movie. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.
I LOVE this story.
However, the "dramatized" part of this audiobook gets difficult to understand at some points. I think my imagination does the best job of "hearing" the sounds and creating the characters. When they put on a goofy voice and add some mood music and sound effects behind it, I get sort of distracted and slightly annoyed. But if that doesn't bother you this is a GREAT recording. Give it a test run.
I'll probably wait till they have all the undramatized versions out before I finish the series. Or I'll do it the old fashion way with a good ole paperback!
I said it with Tina Fey's book and I'm happily saying it again: I love listening to books read by the author! Mindy Kaling's literary voice is so badass (her actual voice is wicked-sweet too). I loved and learned from every bit of this book from reading about her body and boy concerns to her ambitions, successes, and failures.In this book, Mindy Kaling is a mentor and a friend to all. Seriously, this is a great book for teenage girls, twenty-something girls, thirty, forty, old grandmas, effeminate men, men wanting to understand what girls are concerned about, teenage boys wanting a leg up on the competition, everyone. I highly recommend it.
First off, I love listening to books read by the author. And this one was throughly entertaining and enlightening. It made me - a sheltered good-girl - feel validated and way less lame. I'm inspired to follow my ambitious heart. Thanks for the awesomeness Tina Fey.
