I am not going to bore you with book synapses. If you are at all interested in the conflict, this is a great listen. I think the narrator does this book justice.
Two things. Reader is very interesting, which is great. However, he changes from being very loud to very quite. Very hard to listen.
Secondly, the story is just week.
Yes and no. Good job with voices, however, he could have done with out major tone changes.
This is quite possibly one of the worst listens I have ever had. I have been a member, since Audible come to be. So, for me to say that takes a lot.
Shallow. Old. Literary awful. Take "Terminator" and dumb it down. You get this.
Makes it worth.
I should start with noting, that I am not a huge King fan. So, take my review with a "grain of salt".
The look at the 50s and human story is interesting and intriguing.
Not so good (in my opinion)
- The subject "wrapper" is not new. Time travel, butterfly effect etc. Has been told before and I think in some cases, much better...
- No time spend on explaining the "wrapper". I walked away feeling cheated. ("Lost" finally Déjà vu)
What makes this book stand out are three things:
1. It is real story
2. Writing style, makes it sound like a novel vs a biographical account. This is especially hard to accomplish with historical books.
3. Story and Characters are equally captivating
The author managed to create suspense and riveting character development.
One of the best stories I have ever experienced!
I think, that content of the second and third books should have been combined into one.
I believe the Author deviated from original flow and introduced to much unnecessary drama and inner mono logs.
I think she has done a wonderful job bringing the story alive.
It seemed to me that third book was very, very thin on the plot and very reach on an unnecessary inner turmoils and drama. The plot was rushed and disjointed.
It did not do justice the the serious.
Great concept, that trails off into a mediocrity with unnecessary characters and dialogs then finishes off with a predictable dud. Now, if the writer were to shrink this into a short story, this would have been wonderful. I have a feeling publisher must have pushed him into this poor decision.
This book is clever and filed with surprises. Outstanding prose. I only wish the movies would adhere to the "ending".
