"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)
Good novel. A little long winded but that's SK for you. As an audiobook reader, SK is a little lacking but gives a great effort. I don't know where he found the time to perform this audiobook as he was busy finishing the Dark Tower books around this time frame. He must be involved in a heck of a time management program. Neat mini-interview at the end of the book.
This book is quite long but it held my attention. I recommend it.
Bag of Bones is the one of my top three favorite books of all times. Read by Steven King himself, your our brought into the mind of a fiction writer who is griving his wife. If you are a fiction fan you need to give this book a try, you've never regret it.
It has taken me 3 weeks to listen to the first part of this story. I have never been so uninterested and bored with any book I've ever read than I am with this one. I don't care about any of the characters or the story line and since when did Stephen King start to curse so much? With his talk of a woman's monthly cycle and other vulgarities in this book, I've lost all interest and wish I could exchange this title for something more interesting, perhaps the yellow pages or the new tax laws.
I was looking forward to listening to B of Bones on my vacation. I lasted through 9 hours and then threw in the towel.
And I really resent the time I devoted to the book...hoping and hoping that the storyline and character development would pick up. Bag of Bones is repetitive, boring, and uninvolving. I don't recall when I have cared so little for the main character in a novel. The insertion of supernatural events was completely unsuspenseful. I wish I hadn't wasted my book credit on this one. Ugh.
Avid reader! Want fast paced, energetic thrillers. King/Koontz are favorites but finding more authors that are starting to rise to the top
I couldn't get into this one. SK is one of my favorites but there wasn't anything in the beginning that made me want to keep turning the page (or turning up the volume.) Have to admit I didn't finish it.
This is without a doubt the worst audio book.
Sound quality is like Mr. King is talking through a pillow.
I couldnt listen to more that 4 hours before I dreamed of cutting my wrists to provide some excitment.
Just dragged and dragged and dragged..
What a ponderous behemoth of a work. Page by page I went through this epic of a novel, with excess character descriptions and mountains of useless dialogue, only to find out that the end was totally anti-climatic. What a waste of time, I could have read a harlequin novel and got more entertainment effect out of it. This unfortunately is what his novels have succumbed to lately. I swore that I wouldn?t read his works after I suffered through ? Needful Things? but I took a chance and lost. If you are looking for a good scary story, skip this book.
