Good book, it was similar to The Broken Ones but I liked that book also. I'm glad I took a chance on Stephen Irwin.
The story was good, but I didn't like the narrator. I didn't like the voices she used and the main character did not sound believable. I know the main character was supposed to be 16 but she sounded 10.
Not as good as some of his other books, but still an O.K. read. Didn't like the narrator, had that raspy smokers voice.
I was very moved by this story and felt for this man and what he had been through. I went through a very hard time in my life a few years back and I still feel that I have not gotten over it. I listen to personal memoirs where there is a lot of pain in the authors life to show myself that people have gone through a hell of a lot worse than I have and can still make it in life. I was amazed that the author could still laugh a little during some parts of the story. You could tell he was remembering that part of his life when he laughed, it was a natural laugh and was not part of the script. Stories like this give me hope for the future and I am grateful to the author for sharing his story.
This was the first Stephen King book that I ever read. I was in middle school when I read this book and found my favorite author. I think I liked this story because I could relate to some of the characters, and because when I read this book the first time the monsters could still hide under the sheet and kids still had the magic to destroy the monsters. Now the monsters fly passenger jets into buildings or kill their families and eat their bodies because they think God told them to, as the 10 o'clock news keeps reminding us. I didn't have time to read this book again so I got it here at Audible and it was great to relive this story again. The only problem I had was the reading of stuttering Bill's part, it could g-g-get so irritating having to listen to that on and off for 44+ hours.
