I spent years as a cop and don't consider myself a prude, but this book was one I could barely get through, more about his sex life than a crime book. I also listened to Starvation Heights by the same author and it was alright. This book was just way too much even for a person who spent a life time in law enforcement. I am amazed that anyone gave this book higher ratings.
No I would never let one book or even author sour me on other books or authors. However I do have another crime book in my library that tells a terrible story, (beyond bad), hopefully it will be told in such a manner to not totally turn off the listener.
The narrator was ok, it's just too bad what he had to work with.
Honestly... none that I can think of, it was just way to much after listening for just a short time I would want to turn it off. I kept listening thinking maybe it would get better, but no such luck.
Yes but could have been better.
I Listened to the entire book, got invested in.all aspects of the story.. The narrator really made me hate the guys you were supposed to hate... But the ending was a total let down.Thirty some hours, and it was like king had to hurry out of the house so the ending was fast and furious. When I get invested in characters I want to see what happens to all of them by the time the story ends.I am really surprised since this is a Stephen King book.
I really enjoyed this book whether you think it's realistic or not. The person reading did an excellent job and would look forward to listening to other books read by this guy. I have lot's audible books on my IPOD and tend to jump around a bit and may at any one time have 5 different books started at any one time, I didn't do that with this book. Once I started it, I stayed with it and really didn't want to put it down. I would highly recommend this book.
I haven't but I will.
