I wanted to like this book. The reading is OK but the story lacks surprises or really interesting characters. The ending was anticlimactic if you are the kind of person who usually figures out the endings.
I truly enjoyed this story and the reading. If you like historical fiction this will not disappoint. I wish audible would offer more stories by this author.
I ran across this as a recommendation from Stephen King. I don't always agree with his choices but this one did not disappoint. Great reader and interesting story. If you like a historical education with your stories then you will not be disappointed. I remember when the French Lick resorts were first restored and I always found it interesting that they would restore a resort out in the middle of nowhere. Now I have a better appreciation for the history and the place. It makes me want to go there next time I am through Indiana but it isn't cheap!
I can't figure out why people are giving this more than 3 stars at best. I was horrible. I turely love Stephen Kings books. I have read 95% of his stuff including almost all his short stories. Most I would give 4 to 5 stars (insomnia only 2.5) but this was so boring. I saved it to listen to it on my 12 hour drive at Christmas. After 3 hours I couldn't stand it anymore. I skipped ahead to see if it picked up nope. And the ending left me completely flat as well. Obviously some people like this but be warned its not his best work.
