    The book does give you good ideas on what to read. However I did not make it through in print or on audio book. I gave him 1 star because I think he is a tool.

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    Where does Duma Key rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5 out of 236 audio books.


    What about John Slattery’s performance did you like?

    It's that feeling no one else could have done those characters.


    Who was the most memorable character of Duma Key and why?

    Beyond the main character it's Wireman all the way.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story, creepy suspenseful feeling throughout, like a ghost is in the room. I have listened to nearly all of Stephen Kings books available here, and I would say this is the best. The supporting characters are excellent and as I mentioned the narrator is perfect.
