I read this book a number of years ago and was happy to find it on Audible. It didn't challenge my intellect or make me want to take up a political cause - it was just a fun futuristic/medieval romp. Sometimes those are the best books.
I liked the narrator - his voice was smooth and he didn't overdo the drama in his voice. It was delightful.
It wanted me to dust off my juggling balls.
The second part of the trilogy hits the ground running and never stops. The story will keep you hanging on every word. The characters are well developed - even the villains.
I listen to a lot of audio books and Scott Brick is my absolute, #1 favorite narrator. I love the inflections to his voice. He is a perfect match for this book.
I laughed and cried and stayed on the edge of my seat the entire time.
I can't wait for the next book! Justin Cronin... get to work!
Stephen King never disappoints! IT pulled me in and didn't let me go until Silver, the bike, rode down the road.
It doesn't have the high body count that "Under the Dome" had but both wove a great tale. I liked the simultaneous development of characters in each book. Strong, heroic figures. Tragedy and a sense of humor.
Steven Weber was fantastic. His voices were right on the mark. The villian's voices gave me the creeps while the boys/men had the optimism of youth. His voices and King's words are a terrific pairing!
I'd like to dine with Beverly to see how she survived her childhood after being terrorized by her father. Had she forgotten it all?
I'll never look at balloons the same way again.
This is the first time that after the first hour of listening to this book, I had to stop. The narration was very annoying. The woman basically screeched for almost the entire time. Very difficult to get into the story line. A regretful use of a credit.
After reading the other glowing reviews I decided to listen to New York. What a disappointment! The first part of the book was pretty good but it really fell apart after that. The later characters were just not as well developed.
