Love his voice and his ability to give each character their own sound, engaging story, I felt it was a little abrupt at the end but overall I'm glad I bought it.
Read this almost 10 years ago when it was first released, listening to the audible book makes it almost new to me again. The narrator gives me chills when he reads the part of The Fisherman - he has FANTASTIC voices, his tempo is right on, builds suspense and the gross parts are REALLY gross when he reads it. I had a hard time putting down my ipod for a book I already read BEFORE!!! I do like the Talisman better but not by much.
When the book began it was very into the Korean war - I'm not much of a fan of war stories but this book pulled me in and wrapped me in the character's lives - which are NOT all about the war. Not a gripping story but very satisfying. I'm glad I strayed from my usual genre. Very enjoyable. The narrator was great and suited the story well.
The description of this book is about one small storyline and is hardly a part of the plot. We meet the girl Peter loves, she's there for about a chapter and then gone for the rest of the book. The story meanders, multiple characters are introduced and barely touch the story, only my insane need to finish a book I've started kept me going until the end. The description should be changed and imply that the story is about the mystery of Time and New York in the 1900's. A story of human interaction with a touch of magic and engineering.
