    Based on a a novella from Different Seasons, this unabridged tale focuses on a man convicted of murder, who finds himself in a prison ruled by a sadistic warden and secretly operated by a clever convict.

    Overall

    I just listened to the audio and then watched the movie again,the images of the movies are excellent, and I loved the movie before the book, but it pales in comparison. Listening to the incomparable Frank Muller read the story with the huge sweeping shots over the prison in mind, is excellent. Listening to the book makes Tim Robbins acting seem better than it was, and then watching the movie again reminds you just how one dimensional his portrayal really was. This is one of Stephen King's best works, and as I've said Muller doesn't (and hasn't as ever as far as I've heard) disappoint.

    Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, has not been entirely without incident.Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary.

    "Sad"
    Overall

    I was so excited when I added this to my wish-list and promptly bought it. Alas. Its like Colfer cut up the old books and made them a plot madlib. It felt like Eoin watched the recent movie, read a summary of the books and then went to work. I don't even know if I can finish it. I've listened to the original 5 many times (along with Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul) they are fantastic, read by the author, who was an excellent voice talent along with his skill at creating and defining a Genre. This book is a shadow of the others, and it (the series) would have been better if it had stayed retired.
    Skip this and listen to "The Restaurant" again.
