    An extraordinary quest, a magician’s powers, and the journey to find a kingdom.... Timoken is a prince from a secret kingdom. Before his birth, a forest-jinni bestowed upon him two magical gifts: a cloak made from the web of the last moon spider, and a potion called Alixir, the water of eternal life. Yet in exchange for the protection of these gifts, Timoken will always have one foot in the world of men and the other in the strange world of magic.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, but only to get the story line behind it.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story itself seemed very choppy and not descriptive like her previous novels were. I'm not sure if this was due to the narration (he spoke rather fast) or just the overall content. The perspective sounded more like you were reading from someone's diary with all the colorful details left out.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Voices were pleasant, but he spoke too fast for my liking.


    Do you think Chronicles of the Red King: The Secret Kingdom needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, as there is more story that is needed to fill the time until the Charlie Bone series begins.

    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Amazon Customer says: "An exceptional story, but I miss George Guidall."
    "A revisit to the Gunslinger"

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book and didn't even mind Stephen King's narration. It was different than how George narrated the previous books, but I don't think that made it bad. Maybe it's just me, but Stephen's reading of Bag of Bones is one of my very favorites.

    Honestly, anything that will bring more time and more stories to this collection, I am all for it.

    This constant reader says thanks!

    When Disney Imagineers installed hologram guides for the Magic Kingdom using teenage models, they had no idea the technology might backfire. But backfire it did: some nights when the kids go to sleep, they wake up in one of the Disney parks as holograms.

    Story

    Love the book - I really enjoyed the first two as well. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because of the narration. It was good for most of the story, but I didn't care for how he voiced the girls. A little too "valley girl" for me. Overall, if you enjoyed the first two books, you will like this one too.
