Absolutely, I wasn't completely convinced I would like Campbell Scott's reading of this but he did a fantastic job. I was worried he wouldn't be able to sound menacing enough when required but he did just fine! I was able to soak a lot of detail in that I didn't get reading it. Definitely a great performance!
The detailed characterization, fantastic setting and the slow burn horror King can do so well.
The scene where Wendy and Jack face off towards the end of the stormy
Great reading of a fantastic book.
Magical, warm, funny
Matilda of course. I love how resourceful and caring she is.
I thought she did a great job bringing all the characters to life and made it more vivid.
There was already a movie that is actually very good. I have no idea what the tag line would be.
This is a delightful story that is sure to win over the child in your life. Matilda is a very strong little heroine who makes the most of her circumstances, values education and has good morals in spite of her lousy parents. She is definitely a character you will want to root for.
The story was very entertaining and shows why the "fish out of water" scenario is always entertaining. I really enjoyed hearing about how she adjusted, made friends and found herself in prison and also how she tried to highlight the issues with the criminal justice system.
I can't think of any off the top of my head.
I thought she gave a fantastic performance and never once did her reading take me out of the moment. She had to do a variety of accents, characters and ethnicities and I thought she did a good job.
Yes, I listened to it on a road trip going to some fun locations and still regretted when I had to turn it off!
Definitely not for everyone, I found this story to be entertaining and true to the viewpoint of the person telling it. Some have criticized the fact she wasn't always culturally competent but if that's who she is, its really no big surprise.
Absolutely. It was a horror book that managed to be both horrifying and often laugh out loud funny. The characters are well developed, the story never really lags and its so bizarre and squishy you will often find yourself going "Eww" even as your laughing.
When David is escaping through the tunnel towards the end. The spiders in his bedroom!
I think the creepiest is when he is initially attacked by the spiders.
Yes, I definitely could.
Enjoyable horror/comedy book. Dark comedy.
It's towards the top.
John Coffey because he was a gentle soul and a truly good person.
Yes, he always does a good job and has narrated other stories from Stephen King such as Apt Pupil and The Body.
Percy because he's such a little twerp.
Absolutely. Frankenstein is a wonderful horror story and the characters are iconic and amazingly crafted. I always thought I would like Dracula better but in the end Frankenstein is the better story. Simon Vance's performance was superb.
The monster. I can understand his emotions even if I didn't agree with what he did. The whole scene when he is with the family in the mountains is sad and well written.
I think he brings a deeper sense of empathy to the monster. He also gives us great insight into Victor and both his selfishness and his guilt in what he has done.
This book probably doesn't need another movie.
The voices are very well done and I love how somebody sprung for a cast instead of having one voice do it all. I think it really made this story come to life.
In its best moments its brilliant and scary.
Honestly, the whole cast did a great job.
No, even though its a classic I though the pacing was a little uneven. Sometimes I couldn't put it down and other times I was a little bored. I like Frankenstein better.
Everyone should experience Dracula once and I think this audiobook would probably be one of the best ways.
I really felt like Oskar and Eli were interesting and fascinating characters and both are well drawn.
I can't think of any book like this one.
He did a decent job. I can't remember anything specific but at the end of the day I stayed in the book and wasn't taken out of it by anything he did or did not do.
None of them. I'd be more likely to do therapy with them!
Yeah, I probably would have struggled if I was reading it because the beginning definitely starts a little slow. I tried to read it awhile back and ended up putting it down. King's narration brings it to life.
When the main character is swimming in the lake and the bad guys are throwing rocks at him!
He does a good job tying the back story of the town, his own life and the present together and I felt like everything felt plausible in the world he set up.
This was a perfect book for King to narrate out of his catalog because the character is fairly similar to him and it was plausible.
This is a great Stephen King book but definitely time consuming. I didn't regret the time I spent on this one!
Absolutely. This story was so engrossing and involving. I felt like I had been through a lot by the time I got done reading. It's a huge book but it felt like it went by really fast. The characters, the details of the different eras and locations and the wild imagination of it all is both fascinating and riveting.
The lead character.
Overall he does a good job narrating and I felt like he really captured the main character.
Nothing extreme all though I was really involved. I definitely couldn't wait to get back to it when I got in the car every day!
Craig Wasson's voicing of women isn't the best and at times made me giggle. Especially in the more intimate moments featured in the novel.
The world building is very well done and I liked a good majority of the characters. The whole genetic evolution idea is unique and interesting and I felt like it was all unique enough to not feel like I had been there and done that. This book could have used some ruthless editing. There is way too much padding in the action. Also, putting in the horror category is not accurate at all! Honestly, if it would have been labeled the romance it actually is I probably wouldn't have gotten it. There is only so much drinking tea, yoga, culinary decision making and snowflake gazes I can handle before I get bored.
The idea of genetic evolution between the demons, witches and vampires. The politics and everything was cool. Of course, some elements seemed like a smart more intellectual version of elements in Twilight yet it works well because its written with a sense of authenticity. The romance element is the least interesting because A. It's something we've seen before and B.) there is very little tension in the relationship.
I've only heard her on this one but based on this I would listen to her again if she did a book I would be interested in. Her accents are amazing! When I first started the book I thought she sounded a little like Velma from Scooby Doo but that went away after a bit and its dizzying how many different voices she did and how they were all fairly distinctive.
Yeah, edit the heck out of my own writing!
