I tried to read this book when it came out in 1991 and quit after 50 pages.
A few years later I tried to read the book again and made it around 200 pages and quit again. I couldn't get into the story.
Fast forward to 2013 and purchased the book when I saw Stephen King was narrating. I did not want to stop listening. I have always enjoyed Stephen King audiobooks more when he is reading them. He is so engrossing to listen to. I listened to the last seven hours in one day. I even followed along with the novel for the last 50 pages. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
The Tommyknockers is one of my favorite Stephen King novels. I first read it in the early 90s and it has always been on my mind. I've been wanting to re-read it but haven't had the time. This audiobook has helped scratch that itch. Edward Hermann does a fine job narrating the story. The story is good but it is a bit long winded, with just a bit too much detail on the background. Still, the town's slow transformation is so gripping you want to know how the story will end.
I've listened to a good number of King novels and this is one of the best audiobooks of his. Dennis Boutsikaris does a great job bringing you in and immersing you in the story.
