This is one of my favorite King stories. I love it, not sure why. The descritpions are great, the characters interesting and the theme truly unique. One of the most individual and creative settings I've ever read.
However, the narrator seriously ruins it for me. The more I listen to it, the more anoyed I get. Other reviews seem have no problem with the performance, and I can't honestly guess why. The narrator reads all the women, especially the children in such a nasal tone . . . he makes all the woman sound like nasal, stuffed up, prissy, stuck up snobs, somewhere between stoned and allergy attack. It drives me crazy. It has ruined an otherwise marvelous story . . .
