    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    Daniel E. Jacobs says: "putting his voice on what people have been saying"
    "Enjoyed story, but don't entirely agree with it."

    Story
    What did you like best about Guns? What did you like least?

    The accuracy in the way the media sensationalizes a catastrophic event.


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

    notthing


    What does Christian Rummel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think he accurately read the story as it was suppose to be read and how Stephen King wanted it to be read.


    Was Guns worth the listening time?

    It's interesting to see what Stephen Kings views are, and his timing is relevant.


    Any additional comments?

    I may not agree 100% with Stephen Kings views, but I understand where he is coming from.
    I think the problem lies within the lack of stringent background checks. I fear the possibility, however small it may be, for a hostile government take over, or the government taking over the people someday (history repeating). The need for powerful guns may be viable, to protect our families or our rights as Americans.

    If you could sum up The Host in three words, what would they be?

    wonderful love story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Melanie, for her spunk and love for Jared.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kate Reading?

    I don't think so, she was to old to play the part of Melanie and she wasn't very good at changing her voice between characters. I kept picture a middle aged woman, instead of a young woman in her 20's…it was distracting and took away from the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jared professed his love to Melanie to bring her back.
