The narrator isn't so bad until he does the teenage boy. That nasal thing is annoying. Otherwise it's a great story, although it does take a few stretches of the imagination, but that's what fiction is all about. I would recommend this book.
I know King goes into character details. I'm use to that. What I'm not sue to is 30 hours of character details when NOTHING happens. 95% of this book is nothing but dribble on and on about the characters.
King is one of a kind. Not sure of others that would even come close. Some times that's a good thing, sometimes that's a bad (like in this case).
He wasn't bad at all.
Which of the 50 characters that he goes into excruciating detail? I couldn't even tell you. Couldn't keep them all straight.
I know people love this book, but I don't get it. I should have just rented the movie.
Although I thought Jake was a gigantic wussie sometimes, the book was fantastic. I'm usually hesitant about buying King books because he goes into so much detail (30 hours) but this book flew by.

Really spurs your imagination.
Normally like these types of stories, but just thought it was okay. Some parts were predictable, but some were interesting. The Oliver character was a gigantic wussy so he really annoyed me.
This was awesome. Seriously. Get this book, you will not be sorry. Very face paced. Time just flew by.
Seemed to take forever to get to the end then nothing happens. I found this book interesting from a historical perspective but other than that boring.
Okay, too much fluffy with the Nana situation. Could have done without that. Had NOTHING to do with the book.
Been a LONG time since read a King book and forgot how indepth he goes into character development. I know these characters so well I feel like I should send them Christmas cards. That development leads to the length of the book.
The story is unique and keeps you tuned in. I drove around the block to keep listening. There were times were I'd get so angry at the characters, which I guess is a good sign.
The narrator really is weak and at first I almost stopped listening to it just because of it. But after awhile you get too involved in the book to really pay attention. Highly recommended.
Has it's moments, but must say, rather dull. The narrator is horrible for this book.
It is long because our history is long. Fast paced book that touches on just about everything you can imagine. I've listened to this twice and learn something new each time. DEFINITLY worth buying.
