"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'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.
Although I don't think of myself as a King fan, I keep on enjoying his work. I found the story captivating and actually enjoyed King's narration. I prefer a reader who doesn't do "too much" acting, and I figure King knew how he wanted the book to read. Worth the download.
This story started out slow, I wasn't sure what the plot was supposed to be but after a few chapters it slowly unraveled to become a mysterious supernatural story. Well worth a listen.
If you enjoy being scared, especially by mundane occurances, ie, a trip into the basement, then you will love this story. No understands the simple things that can freighten like Stephen King. If there exists an achetype for fear in the collective unconscious of humanity, then King has tapped into those forces. His narration of this story is perfection. I have listened to many of his audiobooks and thus far this is my favorite.
