I tried three times to start this book. It's reviews were OK and I thought I was just missing something. It starts really good. Then it gets bogged down in something, I don't know what because the story could not hold my interest. I forced myself to listen to the first download this time and again - I can't even begin to tell you what the story is about.
No, eight hours in and I don't have a clue what this book is about. It is not only a bad King novel, it's a boring listen.
What genre? What is the book about?
The performance was the highlight of the book.
It will make me wait to see reviews before jumping on King books.
I really enjoyed this story. It was gripping and you were pulling for the characters. It has a moderate level of suspense. I will check out other titles by this author because this book was so good.
This book is a sci-fi quest book. The characters are likable and the story is interesting.
This book fits well into the apocalyptic literature category. It is set in western North Carolina and is about a post Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) world. The book is different than most of the fiction I like. It is very thought provoking and much debate is on the web about the effects of EMP on the world. I think that what most liberals dislike about the book is its showing the common citizen as intelligent, compassionate and fully capable of taking care of himself and his community. It portrays the government as unable to function with civility and fairness after the restraint of elections to harness politicians greed for power, is gone. It deals with the individuals responsibility to oneself and to others to manifest good character and take responsibility for their actions.
It's a good book.
