I was very taken with the story of this wonderful book, which can be read and heard by anyone - teenager or grown-up alike. The entire book is very sweet and almost naive, but at the same time, there are both scary characters and children as heroes. The main character, Nobody Owens, is very innocent but at the same time strong and open to all the things. I highly recommend this book - I heard it in one fell swoop and could not bear to press pause. The author is very talented, painting pictures with every word!
Honestly, I can't imagine how anybody could enjoy this version of the book. While the actual Stephen King novel is another little marvellous masterpiece, this version has been entirely ruined by loud, horrid music.. I sincerely hope a new reader of Stephen King does not start with listening to this book.. buy the paperback instead. Or start with the audible version of the Stand or Duma Key, both lovely books with very well rendered audible versions.
Ralph - as the main character, we do follow him and get to know his inherent humanity.
No - However good he is, he is not suited for Stephen King - and Stephen King is not suited for him
None - Stephen King has created one of his usual masterpieces - I will just have to go and purchase it as a regular book instead, as I cannot bear to listen to more of this.
Stop putting musical tracks and annoying noises on books - it ruins the entire experience. If people want to listen to music, there are so many options to get that - no need to make large parts of the book impossible to actually hear. So dissatisfied
