Characters that did not warrant being hunted by a murderous drug cartel. Three hours in I was beginning to side with the bad guys.
I will be more careful with the author since he has shown he can go from absolutely excellent works, to something like this.
With the material, he did the best he could. His narration was what kept me listening as long as I did.
I would have handed it back to Mr. Winslow, and reminded him of the bar he set with The Power of the Dog, and The Winter of Frankie Machine.
Someone who is new to King possibly. Who comes to the book without expectations and ignorant of the over the top ratings this book managed to get. Someone just looking for a dark story and slow pace.
Another Steinbeck maybe, or Koontz, who remains my favorite.
Probably not. His voice on this audiobook was a very long and difficult listen for me.
Boredom, waiting for the punch, waiting for anything really. Disappointment definitely, I looked forward to this release for some time.
Sample before you buy, pre-orders can be risky even with the best authors.
