The book starts off well enough, but by the end of the first third of the book you will have already figured out who the bad-guy really is and how that came about. Many of the characters are portrayed as incredibly inept (or stupid). By the time you are two thirds through the book you wish it would just end. When it finally does end, it doesn't end but preaches (or drones) on and on and on. Contrived and predictable is a good description of the book.
A professional narrator would have made a big difference.
I have most of the books written by King.
King is a great writer but a lousy narrator. He was monotone and was not dramatic in the reading.
I was sad about the audiobook. A different narrator would have made the book a better experience.
