    What made the experience of listening to The Body the most enjoyable?

    The narrator worked some magic with this short story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters came to life thanks to the narration, and I listened to the book in its entirety thanks to that narration!


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Frank Muller is an excellent narrator! The variations in tone (subtle or not), and the levels made the book extremely enjoyable. Given that I've seen it on television, and it is always hard to capture the same magic with an audio book (from TV or reading a book yourself), having a good narrator is the key to buying almost any story! Given the amount of persons now listening to audible, and itunes etc... I hope to hear more from these narrators (such as Frank Muller and the man whom did 11-22-63; another Stephen King novel).


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

    Many moments in this novel moved me, I can't think of one in particular (except for the descriptive


    Any additional comments?

    Please allow Frank Muller or the man whom did 11--22-63 to narrate a version of

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (16212)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audio book to someone looking for something to listen to on a long drive etc... The narrator did an outstanding job with this particular book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the concepts covered in this story. A story which would've been better issued prior to Quantum Leap and other television shows covered the concepts involved. However, it made no difference; thanks to Stephen Kings


    What does Craig Wasson bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Craig Wasson makes this book highly enjoyable. Mostly due to the variations he used in the voices, I was NOT able to stop listening to this novel. Normally, I switch from one narrator (audio book) to another while driving because I find myself becoming annoyed with the narration. Not so in this case. I would definitely go back and buy


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were many times in which I found myself laughing out loud during the drive while listening to this book (something I've never done before while listening to an audio book)! It was like someone else was in the car with me, and it helped to keep me awake for many a mile, I can tell you!

    Overall

    I have never written a review of any book here on audible. No matter how much I might've enjoyed the author.... But this book is the exception. Obviously, I enjoy Stephen King's works, and look forward to an audible version of "THE STAND" unabridged... But in the meantime, having tried many other King titles here on audible... I gave this narrator a chance. And I'm very glad that I did! I absolutely could NOT stop listening to this story. In fact, thanks to the narrator, I downloaded Audible on my Iphone, and listened to the story while walking! Who knows how many car's I've almost been hit by while lost in another world? I would love to hear this narrator do "THE STAND"... and will join audible again just as soon as they have such titles available. Thanks you narrator (Mr. Edward Hermann)! For making this a most enjoyable 27 hours!
