Absolutely, I wasn't completely convinced I would like Campbell Scott's reading of this but he did a fantastic job. I was worried he wouldn't be able to sound menacing enough when required but he did just fine! I was able to soak a lot of detail in that I didn't get reading it. Definitely a great performance!
The detailed characterization, fantastic setting and the slow burn horror King can do so well.
The scene where Wendy and Jack face off towards the end of the stormy
Great reading of a fantastic book.
While it's not one of my favorites it's still very good and I am glad I read it. This story has a quiet, subtle sense of eeriness and definitely kept me engaged. I think Jamie is a good character and the story is a sad one.
I can't really think of one off the top of my head. The story is pretty unique.
I wouldn't say he's the best narrator I've heard but he does a solid job on this and he definitely doesn't do anything that takes you out of the story. I think he brings a sense of realism to his reading.
Pastor Danny is probably the most memorable.
Not your typical King book so if that's what you're expecting you might be disappointed. I wasn't.
Jeffrey DeMunn (Dale from Walking Dead for those who are fans of the show) gives a great performance and brings the story to life.
This is a pretty wacked out book and I can't think of a book that is similar. The story does remind me of Invasion of the Body Snatchers are something Cronenberg might come up with in movie form.
When one of the guys is trapped with Mr. Gray in the cabin. A squirm inducing moment of body horror that is not easily forgotten.
I'd say its either Jonesy or Duddits. Both are the most memorable out of the main group who must face the evil around them.
This is a lot like It in some ways where we have lots of flashbacks between adulthood and childhood and how it all weaves together.
I really enjoyed it but there are stories I have enjoyed more. This said, I definitely recommend this tale from Stephen King. It's not his best book by any means but it was entertaining and kept me interested. It's a interesting, engaging detective story with a very suspenseful final act. There are some horrific scenes in the book but its more mystery than horror.
Yes, I definitely was concerned about what would happen to the hero and those around him.
Will Patton is a fantastic narrator and his reading of this book is no exception. He has a nice, rough around the edges book that has brought something to the lead character of the story who is an older, slightly depressed retired detective.
There was a very suspenseful moment towards the end and there was one moment that was a bit horrifying but I don't want to give spoilers.
A good, solid King book that is worth the credit in my opinion.
Magical, warm, funny
Matilda of course. I love how resourceful and caring she is.
I thought she did a great job bringing all the characters to life and made it more vivid.
There was already a movie that is actually very good. I have no idea what the tag line would be.
This is a delightful story that is sure to win over the child in your life. Matilda is a very strong little heroine who makes the most of her circumstances, values education and has good morals in spite of her lousy parents. She is definitely a character you will want to root for.
The story was very entertaining and shows why the "fish out of water" scenario is always entertaining. I really enjoyed hearing about how she adjusted, made friends and found herself in prison and also how she tried to highlight the issues with the criminal justice system.
I can't think of any off the top of my head.
I thought she gave a fantastic performance and never once did her reading take me out of the moment. She had to do a variety of accents, characters and ethnicities and I thought she did a good job.
Yes, I listened to it on a road trip going to some fun locations and still regretted when I had to turn it off!
Definitely not for everyone, I found this story to be entertaining and true to the viewpoint of the person telling it. Some have criticized the fact she wasn't always culturally competent but if that's who she is, its really no big surprise.
Absolutely. It was a horror book that managed to be both horrifying and often laugh out loud funny. The characters are well developed, the story never really lags and its so bizarre and squishy you will often find yourself going "Eww" even as your laughing.
When David is escaping through the tunnel towards the end. The spiders in his bedroom!
I think the creepiest is when he is initially attacked by the spiders.
Yes, I definitely could.
Enjoyable horror/comedy book. Dark comedy.
It's towards the top.
John Coffey because he was a gentle soul and a truly good person.
Yes, he always does a good job and has narrated other stories from Stephen King such as Apt Pupil and The Body.
Percy because he's such a little twerp.
Absolutely. Frankenstein is a wonderful horror story and the characters are iconic and amazingly crafted. I always thought I would like Dracula better but in the end Frankenstein is the better story. Simon Vance's performance was superb.
The monster. I can understand his emotions even if I didn't agree with what he did. The whole scene when he is with the family in the mountains is sad and well written.
I think he brings a deeper sense of empathy to the monster. He also gives us great insight into Victor and both his selfishness and his guilt in what he has done.
This book probably doesn't need another movie.
The voices are very well done and I love how somebody sprung for a cast instead of having one voice do it all. I think it really made this story come to life.
In its best moments its brilliant and scary.
Honestly, the whole cast did a great job.
No, even though its a classic I though the pacing was a little uneven. Sometimes I couldn't put it down and other times I was a little bored. I like Frankenstein better.
Everyone should experience Dracula once and I think this audiobook would probably be one of the best ways.
I really felt like Oskar and Eli were interesting and fascinating characters and both are well drawn.
I can't think of any book like this one.
He did a decent job. I can't remember anything specific but at the end of the day I stayed in the book and wasn't taken out of it by anything he did or did not do.
None of them. I'd be more likely to do therapy with them!
