    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    Any additional comments?

    I am always amazed again and again at how well Stephen King steps into the shoes of any character, no matter what the age or gender. I thoroughly enjoyed these elderly characters full of spunk and spirit and Eli Wallach is a dynamic and engaging narrator and I would like to listen to him read some other books, now that I've sat through this one.
    "Insomnia" would work better as a graphic novel or a comic in my opinion than a movie, for some very particular reasons. People who have read it would probably understand why I'd say this, but I don't want to give anything away.

    I could however, do without the sounds of ducks quacking and farting in my ears, mingled occasionally with melodic funeral parlor fare and grating guitar massacres.If you can put up with these once in a while attacks on your eardrums, it's yet another good King book.

    I wouldn't put it very high on my list of recommendations for him, but if you're a fan, you'll like it. I for one always love a return to the accursed town of Derry, and King delivers here once again. If you've read "It", you'll appreciate the little shoutouts he does throughout.
