I've listened to the entire series thus far and have enjoyed each book (although some more than others).
That said, the ending of this book is horrible. It was as if Ms. King's deadline was fast approaching, so she quickly (too quickly) wrapped up the story and slapped on "The End". It was quite unsatisfactory, unexpected and irritating.
I was uncertain as to why the next two novels in the series received such poor reviews. However, if the treatment of this novel's ending is a preview of things to come, I'm inclined to believe the reviewers and will likely not chose to read/listen to the next two books.
Yes, I think so.
No, not even if it was free.
I'll never know if the story was a good one (although, from reading other reviews, I think it would have been). It was the narrator who ruined the experience for me. His female voices were just high pitched, they lacked depth and quality. The voice of the school principal was equally atrocious.
Yes. Though I've never been one to follow the masses (with books or other matters) I broke down and got the audiobook. I'm glad I did. Carolyn McCormick did a great job reading.
