    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    What disappointed you about Cloud Atlas?

    This is definitely a read only story. It seems beautiful however I don't think I'm intelligent enough to grasp it by listening. I will be buying the book though


    Would you be willing to try another book from David Mitchell? Why or why not?

    not audio. he is a wonderful author however I need the written version so that I can have my dictionary next to me while reading it


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has a lot of feeling in his voice


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I'm sure in written version I would adore it

    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Mare Winningham?

    I love Stephen King Duma Key, 11/22/63, and Under the Dome are wonderfully great books. I am not finished with this yet so my tune may still change but this book has bored me to tears. I am half way through and keep thinking and when am I going to stop being depressed. In all fairness though I for one do not like to listen to female narrators (it's just a personal preference) so that may have a little to do with it as well.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

    This book is a little hard to follow listening to it, maybe reading it would possibly be a bit better. But this book bores me with the baby talk and the senseless rambling.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    It's not her fault, I am not a fan of females reading to me is all.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Well it is Stephen King so YES but I am positive when the movie cuts off some of the fluff it would be good.


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said this is only my review halfway through so who knows I may get to the end and say Wow what a wonderful story. But, so far I'm like OMG I know; I can't imagine how you must feel I feel sorry for you. And your hubby seemed like a bit of an egotistical donkey's behind that made you feel less than him, you stood in his shadow and actually thanked him for it. But, come on can you please get on with the story behind the story!

    Would you listen to Duma Key again? Why?

    Do you think Stephen King ever gets tired of hearing "Stephen King has done it again" I am going to say that about this book!!! It's very much worth a second listen


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elizabeth - Her strength and courage


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes but I don't want to give anything away. You know when you get to that part because it will move you as well. Although, really the book as a whole was very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Thumbs up again!!

    In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero.

    Getting through the first Dark Tower book was a little like pulling teeth. But oh so worth sticking to it! Every other book in the series is wonderful, with this book being my very favorite.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What made the experience of listening to 11-22-63 the most enjoyable?

    I fell in love with the characters, they were so real I actually missed them when the story was over!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Saying the best Stephen King is like saying the best piece of chocolate in the box. They are all good but this one really stands out. What I liked best about this story is probably the link to history, the research that must have went into this is astounding. If you like history meets fiction you will LOVE this book!!


    What does Craig Wasson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Wasson is wonderful!!! He brings the story to life!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Every one of Stephen King's books bring an extreme reaction that is what makes him great, but yes there were tears at least twice that I remember.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely the BEST book ever!!
