If you can ignore the other reviews that seem to worried about where this book falls in the political spectrum, then you will enjoy it tremendously. I always look for one thing: a story to keep me interested and listening, something that I won't drift off and realize that I have no idea where the narrator is. Although it starts a little slow, with perhaps a little too much detail added in, all in all the story - again I emphasize that point - is a good one.
The story is good, and I think King still has it. However, the narrator is terrible. I mean, really, really terrible. I tried starting this over four times before just picking up the book and reading it... because I drifted off so many times listening!
I am a King fan, but I just can't recommend this audio book because of the monotone narration. Some narrators have a knack - you know, you literally forget that only one person is reading... unfortunately that wasn't the case here.
As for the story, I thought it was very good. Yes, it resembles other King stories, but hey, King likes the 'strangers get together and fight evil' theme.
Read the book, skip the audio on this one.
