"The witty and obsessive voice of King's powerful imagination." (Amy Tan)
"What King lacks in professional polish he makes up for with an infectious enthusiasm that will lock in listeners for the long haul." (Publishers Weekly)
I generally don't like Stephen King audiobooks when it's some other narrator, but Stephen does a fantastic job on both writing and narrating this story! Highly recommended!!
Again another great book from Mr King. He does an excellent job as a narrator. I have read his books for over 30 years and they are excellent stories to listen to.
Narration of this incredile work by Stephen King dramatically increased my enjoyment of this novel. Not all authors should narrate their own novels... However, this is NOT the case with Stephen King! It is amazing to experience the story exactly how the author intended - with all of the undertones, meaning and complexity of emotion that can be expressed through his voice, pace and diction. I wish that more Stephen King novels, narrated by King, were available.
With a fairly lengthy interview with King at the end of the audio book. It doesn't get much better than this. I'm a voracious King reader, and found such a deeper appreciation of this incredible story by listening instead of reading. Highly recommended!!
I've been a fan of Stephen King for a long time and this is by far one of my favorites. King weaves a mystery world that you can't help but get caught up in. In typical King fashion the story sucks you in and keeps you enthralled. I also love the fact that King himself reads the story,it seems that this is the best way to get as close as possible to understanding the author's true intent. I found myself haunted by the end of this book for days after finishing it and piecing together the multi-layered elements in my head. Why is it that King's characters can never be happy in the end ...alas
What a treat.
This was my first audio book and I'm glad it was! I've been hooked on audio books ever since. The book was incredible. King always is.
I'm Jessica. I love to read but find that I love to listen more. So many good books on audio now. :)
From the start I loved it, the way Stephen narrates this is beyond belief of his ability. He is one of a kind. I love listening to him talk, and he definitely made this worth it. I would recommend it to anyone. It's a must listen!
I'm not sure how I missed Bag of Bones when it was first released. I just finished it and found it to be one of Stephen King's best novels. It had me from the word go.
