    Bobbi Anderson and the other good folks of Haven, Maine, have sold their souls to reap the rewards of the most deadly evil this side of Hell.

    Being an avid King reader, I've always shied away from this title having seen the horrible TV mini-series version that aired in the early 90s. That movie made me stay away from this book, thinking it would be equally terrible and when I finally got around to listening, I was pleasantly surprised. The book was so much better than the mini-series in so many ways: interesting, flawed characters; a nearly concise history of the town of Haven; and a whole lot of really weird (and sometimes downright spooky) inventions and behaviors on behalf the residents of Haven. Overall, a pretty decent King work that deserves a chance for those of us that had been skittish after having seen the mini-series. While parts of this book may be a tad too long or contain a bit too much character development, the narrator makes the time fly by. Edward Hermann's narration is wonderful and he did an excellent job of pulling me into the story and taking me along for the ride. Would definitely check out more of Hermann's audiobook titles due to his reading ability alone.
